I have a batch that inserts more than one record at a time.  After the batch call I call getGeneratedKeys on the preparedStatement, but it only returns the last record inserted (MySQL database)...

//sample code

/* code to delare preparedStatement and code to set values and add to batch */

int[] updateCounts = object.executeBatch();
ResultSet rs = object.getGeneratedKeys ();

Don't think you can use getGeneratedKeys() when using batch processing.

ok, but I thought that was the whole reason for the method (especially since it's named with an 's' on the end)...

I guess I'll have to create my own id's and send with the insert, but then the question becomes -- how can I easily get the last id in the database?

For statements that generate multiple id's.

Or don't use a batch and execute the insert's individually.

Objects,

Sometimes you just need someone else to tell you the obvious!  Thanks for the help.
