Bootiful SQL Template

A simple SQL template engine for Spring Boot applications.

What is Bootiful SQL Template?

Bootiful SQL Template is a simple wrapper of org.springframework.jdbc.core.JdbcTemplate and org.springframework.jdbc.core.namedparam.NamedParameterJdbcTemplate which offers following extension.

  • supports SQL files (plain SQL files or FreeMarker template files)
  • add API using plain Java objects such as value object, java.util.Map and series of simple objects
  • supports public fields of entity classes besides private fields with accessor methods
  • supports JSR-310 time types such as LocalDate, LocalTime, LocalDateTime, ZonedDateTime and OffsetDateTime.
  • supports time zones

Getting started

  • Add dependency in your pom.xml or other build tool's configuration file.
  • Create application class or configuration class of your Spring Boot application as follows.
public class SqlTemplateConfiguration {
	public SqlTemplate sqlTemplate(JdbcTemplate jdbcTemplate, NamedParameterJdbcTemplate namedParameterJdbcTemplate) {
		return new SqlTemplate(jdbcTemplate, namedParameterJdbcTemplate);
  • Create an SQL file in the classpath. (cf. src/main/resources/sql/selectAll.sql)
select * from emp
  • Create a data access class having SqlTemplate bean as an @Autowired property. Then the data access method can call the forObject / forList / update / query methods of the SqlTemplate class.
public class SampleProcess {
    protected SqlTemplate template;

    public void process() {
        List<Emp> emps = template.forList("sql/selectAll.sql", Emp.class);
        emps.forEach(e -> System.out.println(e.ename)); // SMITH ... MILLER
