Restore MySql Backup file by using JAVA

28 Sep

First read my early blog post “Take the MySql DB backup in JAVA” and you can download the source from there

public boolean restoreDatabase(String dbUserName, String dbPassword, String source) {

        String[] executeCmd = new String[]{"mysql", "--user=" + dbUserName, "--password=" + dbPassword, "-e", "source " + source};

        Process runtimeProcess;
        try {
            runtimeProcess = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(executeCmd);
            int processComplete = runtimeProcess.waitFor();

            if (processComplete == 0) {
      "Backup restored successfully with " + source);
                return true;
            } else {
      "Could not restore the backup " + source);
        } catch (Exception ex) {
            log.error(ex, ex.getCause());

        return false;
