Python program to delete a record from a table

Python SQLAlchemy: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a Python program that deletes a student from the 'students' table by their id.

Sample Solution:


from sqlalchemy import create_engine, Column, Integer, String
from sqlalchemy.orm import sessionmaker
from sqlalchemy.ext.declarative import declarative_base
# Create a SQLite database named students.db
engine = create_engine('sqlite:///testdatabase.db', echo=False)
# Create a base class for declarative models
Base = declarative_base()
# Define the Student model
class Student(Base):
    __tablename__ = 'students'    
    id = Column(Integer, primary_key=True)
    studentname = Column(String, nullable=False)
    email = Column(String, nullable=False)
# Create a session to interact with the database
Session = sessionmaker(bind=engine)
session = Session()
def delete_student_by_id(student_id):
    student = session.query(Student).filter_by(id=student_id).first()
    if student:
        print("Student deleted successfully")
        print(f"Student with ID {student_id} not found")
# Delete a student from the students table by their ID
student_id = 22  # Replace with the desired student ID
# Close the session


Student deleted successfully
