Hi,
I need to know how to update a record with jdbc with a previous value in the table column!

I want to update a record and set a count column like count+1 for certain condition?
How I do that?

send a query
create a statement or prepared statement with the query,

               "update table_name set col_name = value where col_key = value"

and call executeUpdate() ;

Can't believe circling in the same loop :)

No Stored Procedure for me!! Forbidden for me !! :)
