How to escape backslash in an insert statement

I am using the MariaDB JDBC driver 1.1.1 and trying to insert string literal with "\" to a table. How do I escape it? I tried the following and was getting syntax errors.

1) String stmt = "insert into test (name, value) values ('c$', 'c:\\')"; 

2) String stmt = "insert into test (name, value) values ('c$', 'c:\\\\')";

Your second variant is correct.

I can run it without any errors (assuming I have table test with varchar(10) columns "name " and "value"), and it produces the correct result with single backslash character.
