How to write Native SQL Queries in Spring boot

Sometimes we have some constraints where we aren’t able to use the JPA or Query Method in our Repository class in Spring boot So we need to go back to basics and need to write the native SQL query to achieve the solution.

In Today’s Tutorial, we will see how to write Native SQL Query in Repository Class.

See our Entity Class

public class Student{

private Long id;

private String name;

private Integer age;

//getter & setters


Now our Repository Class would be something like below

public interface StudentRepository extends JpaRepository<Student,Long>{

      Student  findById(Long id);

      //Native Query Method of number of student of given name
      @Query(value="select count(1) from student where student_name = :name" ,nativeQuery=true )
      Integer NumberOfStudent(@Param("name") String name);


Points to be noted here –

  • We need to use the actual column name in where clause when we use the native SQL query way.
    • In the above class, if you see the student_name is column name ( whereas name is defined in entity class ) we use student_name rather name.
  • we should use the actual table name rather than the Entity class name in native SQL queries.
