spring boot show sql

To enable Spring Boot to show SQL statements, you can follow these steps:

  1. Add the necessary dependencies: In your Maven or Gradle build file, add the required dependencies for Spring Boot and the database you are using. For example, if you are using MySQL, you would need to include the Spring Boot Starter Data JPA and MySQL Connector/J dependencies.

  2. Configure the database connection: In your application.properties or application.yml file, specify the necessary properties for connecting to your database. This includes the URL, username, and password for accessing the database.

  3. Enable SQL logging: To enable the logging of SQL statements, you need to include the appropriate configuration in your application.properties or application.yml file. For example, in application.properties, you can set the following property:


This configuration tells Spring Boot to log the SQL statements executed by the application.

  1. Run your application: Once you have made the necessary configurations, you can run your Spring Boot application. As you execute database operations, the SQL statements will be logged to the console or the configured logging output.

By following these steps, you can enable Spring Boot to show SQL statements, allowing you to debug and analyze the database interactions of your application.
