This means that compilation and parsing of such statement is done only once byrepparttar database. Afterwardsrepparttar 147413 database reusesrepparttar 147414 already parsed and compiled statement. This significantly improvesrepparttar 147415 performance because whenever a statement has to be executed repeatedly, it doesn't need to be parsed and compiled time and again. Sorepparttar 147416 overload incurred by parsing and compilingrepparttar 147417 same statement can be reduced.

When there is a requirement for single request to process multiple complex statements, CallableStatement gives better performance as compared to PreparedStatement and Statement.
