How do you write your sql statement?
Maybe the text got same special character: " or ' which give you the error.

Maybe you can try to use
   PreparedStatement.setString(1, "");
to insert text.

This is my method in my database class

 
     public boolean addNews(String title, int day, int month, int year, String source, String content, String editor, String postedBy, String lastUpdatedBy)
     {
          System.out.println(".."+content+">>");
          int row = 0;
          try
          {
               Statement stmt = con.createStatement();
               String sql = "Insert into News (Title, Day, Month, Year, Source, Content, Editor, Postedby, Lastupdatedby) values('"+title+"',"+day+","+month+","+year+",'"+source+"','"+content+"','"+editor+"','"+postedBy+"','"+lastUpdatedBy+"')";
               row = stmt.executeUpdate(sql);
               if(row == 1)
               {
                    return true;
               }
          }//try
          catch(SQLException e)

Try this,

String sql = "Insert into News(.., content, ...) values(.., ?, ..)";

PreparedStatement pstmt = con.prepareStatement(sql);
pstmt.setString(6, content);
pstmt.executeUpdate();

Similar method.

String sql = "Update News set .., Content = ?, ...";
PreparedStatement pstmt = con.prepareStatement(sql);
pstmt.setString(1, n.getContent());
pstmt.executeUpdate();

It sounds like the problem may be with your driver.  Which driver are you using?

As an expiriment, try using PreparedStatement and setString() to insert the large String instead of one long update statement.  If that doesn't work, try setCharacterStream().  The simple change of binding your variables may make all the difference.  I'll modify your update for you:

PreparedStatement pst = con.prepareStatement("Update News set Title = ?, Day = ?, Month = ?, Year = ?, Source = ?, Content = ?, Editor = ?, Lastupdateby = ? WHERE NewsID = ?");

pst.setString(1, n.getTitle());
pst.setInt(2, n.getDay());
pst.setInt(3, n.getMonth());
pst.setInt(4, n.getYear());
pst.setString(5, n.getSource());
pst.setString(6, n.getContent());
pst.setString(7, n.getEditor());
pst.setString(8, n.getLastUpdatedBy());
pst.setInt(9, n.getID());

int row = stmt.executeUpdate();

If that doesn't work, change the

pst.setString(6, n.getContent());

to:
 Reader rdr = new StringReader(n.getContent());
 pst.setCharacterStream(6, n.getContent(), n.getContent().length());

-----------------------------------------------------

BTW your datatype is text, right?

good catch, kotan.

Gina, the .newInstance() call on your Class.forname is not necessary.

i manage to insert the data already. however, if in the information, there are 's in between, i was not able to insert the information into the database. By the way, the data type is text.

My method will let you insert the ' characters as is.  That's one of the main advantages to it.
