java - with - spring data jpa stored procedure cursor example

Calling stored procedure from Java/JPA (12)

I am writing a simple web application to call a stored procedure and retrieve some data. Its a very simple application, which interacts with client's database. We pass employee id and company id and the stored procedure will return employee details.

Web application cannot update/delete data and is using SQL Server.

I am deploying my web application in Jboss AS. Should I use JPA to access the stored procedure or CallableStatement. Any advantage of using JPA in this case.

Also what will be the sql statement to call this stored procedure. I have never used stored procedures before and I am struggling with this one. Google was not much of a help.

Here is the stored procedure:

CREATE procedure getEmployeeDetails (@employeeId int, @companyId int)
    select firstName, 
      from employee et
     where et.employeeId = @employeeId
       and et.companyId = @companyId


For anyone else having problem calling stored procedure using JPA.

Query query = em.createNativeQuery("{call getEmployeeDetails(?,?)}",
                                   .setParameter(1, employeeId)
                                   .setParameter(2, companyId);

List<EmployeeDetails> result = query.getResultList();

Things I have noticed:

  1. Parameter names didn't work for me, so try using parameter index.
  2. Correct sql statement {call sp_name(?,?)} instead of call sp_name(?,?)
  3. If stored procedure is returning a result set, even if you know with only one row, getSingleResult wont work
  4. Pass a resultSetMapping name or result class details

I am deploying my web application in Jboss AS. Should I use JPA to access the stored procedure or CallableStatement. Any advantage of using JPA in this case.

It is not really supported by JPA but it's doable. Still I wouldn't go this way:

  • using JPA just to map the result of a stored procedure call in some beans is really overkill,
  • especially given that JPA is not really appropriate to call stored procedure (the syntax will be pretty verbose).

I would thus rather consider using Spring support for JDBC data access, or a data mapper like MyBatis or, given the simplicity of your application, raw JDBC and CallableStatement. Actually, JDBC would probably be my choice. Here is a basic kickoff example:

CallableStatement cstmt = con.prepareCall("{call getEmployeeDetails(?, ?)}");
cstmt.setInt("employeeId", 123);
cstmt.setInt("companyId", 456);
ResultSet rs = cstmt.executeQuery();


How to retrieve Stored Procedure output parameter using JPA (2.0 needs EclipseLink imports and 2.1 does not)

Even though this answer does elaborate on returning a recordset from a stored procedure, I am posting here, because it took me ages to figure it out and this thread helped me.

My application was using Eclipselink-2.3.1, but I will force an upgrade to Eclipselink-2.5.0, as JPA 2.1 has much better support for stored procedures.

Using EclipseLink-2.3.1/JPA-2.0: Implementation-Dependent

This method requires imports of EclipseLink classes from "org.eclipse.persistence", so it is specific to Eclipselink implementation.

I found it at "".

StoredProcedureCall storedProcedureCall = new StoredProcedureCall();
storedProcedureCall.addNamedArgument("i_input_1"); // Add input argument name.
storedProcedureCall.addNamedOutputArgument("o_output_1"); // Add output parameter name.
DataReadQuery query = new DataReadQuery();
query.addArgument("i_input_1"); // Add input argument names (again);
List<Object> argumentValues = new ArrayList<Object>();
argumentValues.add("valueOf_i_input_1"); // Add input argument values.
JpaEntityManager jpaEntityManager = (JpaEntityManager) getEntityManager();
Session session = jpaEntityManager.getActiveSession();
List<?> results = (List<?>) session.executeQuery(query, argumentValues);
DatabaseRecord record = (DatabaseRecord) results.get(0);
String result = String.valueOf(record.get("o_output_1")); // Get output parameter

Using EclipseLink-2.5.0/JPA-2.1: Implementation-Independent (documented already in this thread)

This method is implementation independent (don't need Eclipslink imports).

StoredProcedureQuery query = getEntityManager().createStoredProcedureQuery("mypackage.myprocedure");
query.registerStoredProcedureParameter("i_input_1", String.class, ParameterMode.IN);
query.registerStoredProcedureParameter("o_output_1", String.class, ParameterMode.OUT);
query.setParameter("i_input_1", "valueOf_i_input_1");
boolean queryResult = query.execute();
String result = String.valueOf(query.getOutputParameterValue("o_output_1"));

For me, only the following worked with Oracle 11g and Glassfish 2.1 (Toplink):

Query query = entityManager.createNativeQuery("BEGIN PROCEDURE_NAME(); END;");

The variant with curly braces resulted in ORA-00900.

JPA 2.1 now support Stored Procedure, read the Java doc here.


StoredProcedureQuery storedProcedure = em.createStoredProcedureQuery("sales_tax");
// set parameters
storedProcedure.registerStoredProcedureParameter("subtotal", Double.class, ParameterMode.IN);
storedProcedure.registerStoredProcedureParameter("tax", Double.class, ParameterMode.OUT);
storedProcedure.setParameter("subtotal", 1f);
// execute SP
// get result
Double tax = (Double)storedProcedure.getOutputParameterValue("tax");

See detailed example here.

May be it's not the same for Sql Srver but for people using oracle and eclipslink it's working for me

ex: a procedure that have one IN param (type CHAR) and two OUT params (NUMBER & VARCHAR)

in the persistence.xml declare the persistence-unit :

<persistence-unit name="presistanceNameOfProc" transaction-type="RESOURCE_LOCAL">
        <property name="eclipselink.logging.level" value="FINEST"/>
        <property name="eclipselink.logging.logger" value="DefaultLogger"/>
        <property name="eclipselink.weaving" value="static"/>
        <property name="eclipselink.ddl.table-creation-suffix" value="JPA_STORED_PROC" />

and declare the structure of the proc in the eclipselink-orm.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><entity-mappings version="2.0"
xmlns="" xmlns:xsi=""
xsi:schemaLocation=" orm_2_0.xsd">
<named-stored-procedure-query name="PERSIST_PROC_NAME" procedure-name="name_of_proc" returns-result-set="false">
    <parameter direction="IN" name="in_param_char" query-parameter="in_param_char" type="Character"/>
    <parameter direction="OUT" name="out_param_int" query-parameter="out_param_int" type="Integer"/>
    <parameter direction="OUT" name="out_param_varchar" query-parameter="out_param_varchar" type="String"/>

in the code you just have to call your proc like this :

try {
        final Query query = this.entityManager
        query.setParameter("in_param_char", 'V'); 
        resultQuery = (Object[]) query.getSingleResult();

    } catch (final Exception ex) {
        throw new TechnicalException(ex);

to get the two output params :

Integer myInt = (Integer) resultQuery[0];
String myStr =  (String) resultQuery[1];

The following works for me:

Query query = em.createNativeQuery("BEGIN VALIDACIONES_QPAI.RECALC_COMP_ASSEMBLY('X','X','X',0); END;");

This answer might be helpful if you have entity manager

I had a stored procedure to create next number and on server side I have seam framework.

Client side

 Object on = entityManager.createNativeQuery("EXEC getNextNmber").executeUpdate();"New order id: " + on.toString());

Database Side (SQL server) I have stored procedure named getNextNmber

To call stored procedure we can use Callable Statement in java.sql package.

Try this code:

return em.createNativeQuery("{call getEmployeeDetails(?,?)}",
                               .setParameter(1, employeeId)
                               .setParameter(2, companyId).getResultList();

You need to pass the parameters to the stored procedure.

It should work like this:

    List result = em
      .createNativeQuery("call getEmployeeDetails(:employeeId,:companyId)")
      .setParameter("emplyoyeeId", 123L)
      .setParameter("companyId", 456L)


Or maybe it shouldn't.

In the Book EJB3 in Action, it says on page 383, that JPA does not support stored procedures (page is only a preview, you don't get the full text, the entire book is available as a download in several places including this one, I don't know if this is legal though).

Anyway, the text is this:

JPA and database stored procedures

If you’re a big fan of SQL, you may be willing to exploit the power of database stored procedures. Unfortunately, JPA doesn’t support stored procedures, and you have to depend on a proprietary feature of your persistence provider. However, you can use simple stored functions (without out parameters) with a native SQL query.
