Save and Retrieve JCheckBox to Database

Saving and Retrieving JCheckBox value in database is very easy. You just need to store 0 or 1 in the table. If JCheckBox is unchecked, store 0 into table and if JCheckBox is checked then store 1 into table. Here, is the complete programming example.

I created a new table JCheckBox_Table in database. I will use this table for storing checked value. You must insert a default row in JCheckBox_Table manually because this program will only update row for storing checkbox value.
