Can i get any result back from the insert Query?

I am executing a insert query from my java Program. In the insert query i am passing 0
as the value for one of the fields. In the Database side that value is replaced by a unique id
( some trigger and Sequence is used for that). To get that generated id i am again doing
another query. Is there any way by which i can avoid the 2nd query and can get the generated id from the first query itself ?

No an insert cannot return a result set.

If available you could use a stored procedure to perform the insert and it could return the result.

Think there's no other way than this or what object said :

String query =  "INSERT INTO Tablename (VALUES) SELECT Values FROM YourDataBase";

Hope this helps . . .

Opps should be :

String query = "INSERT INTO Tablename (VALUES) SELECT Values FROM Tablename";

String query= "Insert into tablename(id, field2, field3...fieldn)(select sequence.nextval, fieldfromtable1, fieldfromtable2, fieldfromtable3...fieldfromtablen from othertablename
)";

if you get only the id value from database

String query="Insert into tablename(id, field2, field3...fieldn)(select sequence.nextval,"+var1+","+var2+","+var3+...+varnblen+" from dual)";

where var2, var2, var3 are values defined in your application
