Java How to store the sql query's output in a variable - In a shell script


My requirement is :
We are calling an sql statement from a UNIX session, and fetching data into some variables from a table .. now we are unable to access these variables from outside the SQL part. Please let me know how can I achieve this.

Can you please share a code snippet which elucidates this.

Thanks & Regards,

Generally it can be :
sqlresult="mysql -defaults-file=/opt/mysql.conf -ppassword DB -e SELECT * FROM TABLE;"

and then play with $sqlresult varaible.

from pl/sql you can do something like this, i'm not sure if will work with non numeric values [ but you can try ] i use this to pass exit status if sql failed.


variable status number;
status number;
column status new_value status noprint
select :status status from dual;
exit &status
