I am connecting to the Oracle DB fine.  Once I encounter the "execute" line of the following code I get a "Not all variables are bound" exception.  Al data types are char's of different lengths.

CallableStatement cstmt = con.prepareCall("{call ehcivr.hrp_matchempid(?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?)} ");
cstmt.setString(1, "1114567890");
cstmt.setString(2, "456789");
cstmt.registerOutParameter(3, Types.CHAR);
cstmt.registerOutParameter(4, Types.CHAR);
cstmt.registerOutParameter(5, Types.CHAR);
cstmt.registerOutParameter(6, Types.CHAR);
cstmt.registerOutParameter(7, Types.CHAR);

Try out the standard package:

 Argument Name                  Type                    In/Out Default?
 ------------------------------ ----------------------- ------ --------
 JOB                            BINARY_INTEGER          OUT
 WHAT                         VARCHAR2                        IN
 NEXT_DATE             DATE                                   IN     DEFAULT
 INTERVAL                 VARCHAR2                        IN     DEFAULT
 NO_PARSE               BOOLEAN                          IN     DEFAULT
 INSTANCE                 BINARY_INTEGER          IN     DEFAULT
 FORCE                       BOOLEAN                         IN     DEFAULT

     CallableStatement cstmt = conn.prepareCall("{ call dbms_job.submit(?,?) }");

     cstmt.registerOutParameter(1,Types.INTEGER);   // register JOB
     cstmt.registerOutParameter(2,Types.CHAR);         //  register WHAT
     cstmt.setString(2,"MYJOBS.ANYTHING;");              //   setup WHAT

    System.out.println("Job started: " + cstmt.getInt(1));  // get JOB

So it seems, you haven't registered your OUT parameters right:
I don't know your package so I try:

                    cstmt.registerOutParameter(1,Types.INTEGER);    // you must! register
                    cstmt.registerOutParameter(1,Types.INTEGER);   //  you must! register
                    cstmt.registerOutParameter(3, Types.CHAR);
                    cstmt.registerOutParameter(4, Types.CHAR);
                    cstmt.registerOutParameter(5, Types.CHAR);
                    cstmt.registerOutParameter(6, Types.CHAR);
                    cstmt.registerOutParameter(7, Types.CHAR);

                    cstmt.setInt(1,1114567890);  // it is an int

Do I have to register a parameter that is only of type "IN".
Do I really need to cstmt.registerOutParameter("WHAT"), when it's an "IN" parameter?

Ok, sorry: you must not.
I read the "Oracle 8i JDBC Developers Guide and Reference Release 3 (8.1.7) from July 2000,
Part No:A 83724-01" again.

In the sample is used a "function" instead a "procedure". In my education papers, its described different from this guide.

So, if a registry is missing, the error message is:

java.sql.SQLException: Missing IN or OUT paramters at index: <:x>

I can't get your error message "Not all variables are bound", so it seems we are working with different JDBC-drivers.

You can try out first to registry all OUT parameters and than setup the IN parameters.
Can you compile and run the code from previous comment :

                        CallableStatement cstmt = conn.prepareCall("{ call dbms_job.submit(?,?) }");

                        cstmt.registerOutParameter(1,Types.INTEGER);   // register JOB
                        // cstmt.registerOutParameter(2,Types.CHAR);         //  Ok, don't need, but works also
                        cstmt.setString(2,"DBMS_OUTPUT.NEWLINE;");              //   setup WHAT with real job
                       System.out.println("Job started: " + cstmt.getInt(1));  // get JOB

you can verify the job (if you are very fast or send more jobs, otherwise the job is done):

"select job, next_date, what from user_jobs"

This is my reference test when I use a new JDBC-driver or an new DB-instance.

graf27 ,

I am currently using an ODBC bridge driver.  Which driver are you using?  Thin?

Thanks for all your help
