My SQL Query is:
ResultSet RS             = SQLStmt.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM links;");

Question:
If I pass a string into the method (called SQLVar for example), how do I pass this into my SQL statement so i have something like this:

ResultSet RS             = SQLStmt.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM links where description like SQLvar;");

Thanks,

Matt

Also - if I create a session bean, how do i discard the session - for example is a user logs out?

or use a PreparedStatement:

PreparedStatement ps = conn.prepareStatement("SELECT * FROM links where description like ?");
ps.setString(1, SQLVar);
ResultSet RS = ps.executeQuery();

Hello again Objects.
I think your code works - unfortunately when I ran it I started getting an exception, so i put all my code back how it was and I can't seem to get rid of the exception.  Can you cast your expert eye over it - I can't seem to find where the error lies:

try
            {
                  ObjConn = DriverManager.getConnection(url, "user", "password");
                    SQLStmt = ObjConn.createStatement();
                ResultSet RS             = SQLStmt.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM database;");
                ResultSetMetaData OutputMD      = RS.getMetaData();
                  
                iNumColumns             = OutputMD.getColumnCount();
                                                
                        while(RS.next())
                        {
                              Vector Vectortemp = new Vector();
                              
                              for(int i=1;i<=iNumColumns;i++)
                              {
                                    Vectortemp.addElement(RS.getObject(i));
                              }
                              
                              VectorA.addElement(Vectortemp);
                              }
                              
                        SQLStmt.close();
                        RS.close();
                        ObjConn.close();
                   }

Any ideas.

I'm not sure - I've got a crude way of checking:

catch(SQLException ConnectEx)
            {
                  iNumColumns = 32;
                     System.err.println(ConnectEx.getMessage());
                   }

I return iNumColumns to the JSP page and output it to the screen.  

All i know is iNumColumns = 32

what does that line print to log?

> SQLStmt.close();
> RS.close();
> ObjConn.close();

order should be:

RS.close();
SQLStmt.close();
ObjConn.close();

If i browse to tomcat/logs where i assume the logs are there are about 5 different log files whih contain loads of data.  So i've moved them into a file called temp so that when i reload the page it creates a new log file.  But this doesn't happen.

How do i find the particular log of this event?

Yep, changed the order.
Version of tomcat is 5.0.16

The only thing that i have changed since it was working was the page that the method is called from but i can't see his having any effect on the method throwing an exception.

you could try getting rid of that ; at the end of the sql statement.

not sure what 5.0 does with its logs and it probably depends on your setup anyway.
if it helps the log for my local tobcat webapp in 4.1 is localhost_log.yyyy-mm-dd.txt

Fixed it!!!!
dont worry i was being an idiot.

It was further above in the code, i had :
ClassforName("var")
instead of ClassforName(var)

Thanks a lot for your help though, I found the log file and it was that that pointed me to my stupid mistake.
