Hi!

Can anybody tell me what selectAndOrderPs.setString(1, visitId) does in detail?
++++++++++++++

private String selectTitlesAndOrder="select test.assess_test_id as id, type.test_type_title as title"+ " FROM Assess_Tests test, Assess_test_types type" +" WHERE visit_id=? AND" + " test.assess_test_type_id=type.assess_test_type_id" + " ORDER BY ?";


public LinkedHashMap selectTitlesAndOrder(String visitId, String orderParam)
       throws SQLException {
            log.debug("start");

            LinkedHashMap testMap = new LinkedHashMap();
            
            selectAndOrderPs = db.prepareStatement(selectTitlesAndOrder);
            selectAndOrderPs.setString(1, visitId);
            selectAndOrderPs.setString(2,orderParam);

            ResultSet rs = selectAndOrderPs.executeQuery();
      
            while(rs.next()) {
                  testMap.put(rs.getString("id"), rs.getString("title"));
            }

            selectAndOrderPs.close();
            
            return testMap;
    }

Hi dkim18,
Sets the value written in visitId at the place of the first ?. It also escapes the value if needed....

It's a wrapper around a query that parameterizes a query based on its id and sort order. A Map is built such that the test assess id returned by the query is mapped to the titles of the tests

The setString(n, str) set the parameter at location n to the string str.  This assumes that the statement has been prepared with parameters and that the ? position is mapped to a string.  If not a SQLException will occur.

In your example the SQL statment has parameters on 'visit_id=?', and 'ORDER BY ?'.  The 1st is valid and is parameter one.  The second will not work.  The reason is that the database uses the parameterized SQL statment and generates its internal Query.  If the statement has been used before, the database may choose to cache the statement compilation and thus make your query faster.  You cannot set the parameter on ORDER BY because the database needs to know how to sort the results BEFORE it is executed.
