Some method calls are handled entirely by the JdbcTemplate, while others require the calling class to provide callback methods that contain the implementation for parts of the JDBC workflow. This is another form of Inversion of Control. Your application code hands over the responsibility of managing the database access to the template class. The template class in turn calls back to your application code when it needs some detail processing filled in. These callback methods are allowed to throw a java.sql.SQLException, since the framework will be able to catch this exception and use its built-in excepti…
