Oracle Database Change Notification JDBC Style Example

this code example test in oracle 11g R2 and run on user scott, first we must grant privilage for notification

grant change notification to scott;

this grant can use scott account grant to it self.

project structure need only one file ( and JDBC library

package com.example.dcn;

import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.sql.Statement;
import java.util.Properties;
import oracle.jdbc.OracleConnection;
import oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver;
import oracle.jdbc.OracleStatement;
import oracle.jdbc.dcn.DatabaseChangeEvent;
import oracle.jdbc.dcn.DatabaseChangeListener;
import oracle.jdbc.dcn.DatabaseChangeRegistration;

public class OracleDCN {
    static final String USERNAME = "scott";
    static final String PASSWORD = "tiger";
    static String URL = "jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:stingdev";
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        OracleDCN oracleDCN = new OracleDCN();
        try {
        } catch (Exception ex) {
    private void run() throws Exception{
        OracleConnection conn = connect();
        Properties prop = new Properties();
        prop.setProperty(OracleConnection.DCN_NOTIFY_ROWIDS, "true");
        DatabaseChangeRegistration dcr = conn.registerDatabaseChangeNotification(prop);
            dcr.addListener(new DatabaseChangeListener() {

                public void onDatabaseChangeNotification(DatabaseChangeEvent dce) {
                    System.out.println("Changed row id : "+dce.getTableChangeDescription()[0].getRowChangeDescription()[0].getRowid().stringValue());
            Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
            ((OracleStatement) stmt).setDatabaseChangeRegistration(dcr);
            ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("select * from EXAMPLE where ID=1");
            while ( {
        }catch(SQLException ex){
            if (conn != null)
            throw ex;

    OracleConnection connect() throws SQLException {
        OracleDriver dr = new OracleDriver();
        Properties prop = new Properties();
        prop.setProperty("user", OracleDCN.USERNAME);
        prop.setProperty("password", OracleDCN.PASSWORD);
        return (OracleConnection) dr.connect(OracleDCN.URL, prop);

when something change in EXAMPLE table event will triggle and print ROW_ID

after database change notification has registed we can check using query
