JDBC & Prepared Statements

Hi there,

I have a strange problem ..iam unable to figure it out any help will be highly appreciated..I have a database with around 80 tables Iam doing something like

main()
{ PreparedStatement pStmt = null;
try
{
Connection conn = DatabaseConnectionPoolMgr.getConnection();
deleteTablesInternal(conn);
deleteSomeTables(conn);
String sSql = "Delete from demo where demoid=10";
pSmt = conn.prepareStatement(sSql);
pStmt.execute();
pStmt.Close();
System.out.println("After deleting from demo");
}
catch(Exception e)
{
e.printStackTrace();
throw e;
}
finally
{
if(conn!= null)
  conn.close();
if(pStmt != null)
  pStmt.close();
}

}
In deleteTablesInternal() iam deleting some tables using preparedStatement & in deleteSomeTables() also, iam doing the same thing, finally iam deleting from the demo table which is the last table... My problem is the statement "After deleting from demo " is being displayed but the data is not deleted from demo table, all other tables are working fine...Iam using oracle9i as the database, iam in a dilemma & unable to figur it out whether its a database problem or jdbc problem. Any help wil be highly appreciated. thanxs in advance.

Sure you have entries for which demoid=10?

objectsCommented:
check that rows exist with demoid=10
the return value from an update will tell you how many rows were affected.

You could try executeUpdate() instead of execute()

If you use executeUpdate()

Hi satishAnanthuni,

There is no need to use a PreparedStatement in this case, not that it should matter.

Try this:
Statement pStmt = null;
try
{
Connection conn = DatabaseConnectionPoolMgr.getConnection();
deleteTablesInternal(conn);
deleteSomeTables(conn);
String sSql = "Delete from demo where demoid=10";
pSmt = conn.createStatement();
pStmt.executeUpdate(sSql);
pStmt.Close();
System.out.println("After deleting from demo");
}


Cheers!

Hi All,

Its still confusing, there is one record in the demo table with demoid = 10 & the executeUpdate() returns me 1 but somehow, the record still exists in the database..

If its returning 1 then it is deleting it.
Are you sure you're not inserting it again later, or checking the wrong database/table?

Rather impossible.
>> Are you sure you're not inserting it again later, or checking the wrong database/table?
Better double check that

i found that u haven't commit, did u do the commit?

conn.setAutoCommit(false);
deleteTablesInternal(conn);
deleteSomeTables(conn);
String sSql = "Delete from demo where demoid=10";
pSmt = conn.prepareStatement(sSql);
pStmt.execute();
pStmt.Close();
System.out.println("After deleting from demo");

conn.commit();
