Trying to insert longitude/latitude values into a NUMBER column in oracle and a java string of xml into an XMLTYPE column in oracle using the following code:

                SiteReport siteReport = (SiteReport)siteReports.get(i);
                 String sql = "INSERT INTO SRP_SURVEY_REPORT " +
                "(SRP_PK, SRP_LONGITUDE, SRP_LATITUDE, SRP_XML)" +
                "VALUES (SEQ_SRP_SURVEY_REPORT.nextval,?,?,?)";
               
                PreparedStatement ps = conn.prepareStatement(sql);
                ps.setDouble(1, siteReport.getLongitude());  //SiteReport.logitude: tried long, double, Double, float
                ps.setDouble(2, siteReport.getLatitude()); //same
                ps.setObject(3, siteReport.getXml()); //SiteReport.xml is String.
                ps.execute();
                ps.close();


I get the following error every time:
ORA-01461: can bind a LONG value only for insert into a LONG column

Also, what java data type do I use for XMLTYPE??

>> ps.setDouble(1, siteReport.getLongitude());  //SiteReport.logitude: tried long, double, Double, float

Try with ps.setLong ( 1, siteReport.getLongitude () ) ; // make sure getLongitude () returns a long

Otherwise try casting it:

ps.setLong ( 1, ( long ) siteReport.getLongitude () ) ;

I tried Long and long, same results. However, after doing some googling on this error I found that its not really not a 'Long' problem, but thats just the message it spits out. So I commented out the third paramter (the XMLTYPE) and I did not get an error...so the  ps.setObject(3, siteReport.getXml()) is whats causing the error.

Now I just have to figure out what java data type to bind to the oracle XMLTYPE, or maybe its a character set incompatibility or size limitiation.

The getXml is 8100 byte string

If getXml () returns a string, you need to use setString () for it, and the data type in the database should be CHAR or VARCHAR or VARCHAR2 or something of that family

I need to change the java type instead of the database column. I believe they need to use XMLTYPE for indexing purposes.

Guess you need to use XMLType () defined by an Oracle library and use an instance of that with setObject ():

The XMLTYPE parses a string on insert.

I tried this with error "expect < instead of y":
ps.setString(3, "yabba dabba doo");

 I tried this and no errors:
ps.setString(3, "<root><test>testing</test></root>");

But there is no data in the table still, but thats probably another issue.

So I think the string is too long for the field.

You need to use:

DocumentBuilderFactory dbf = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance () ;
DocumentBuilder db = dbf.newDocumentBuilder () ;
Document doc = db.parse ( new InputSource ( new StringReader ( "<root><test>....</test></root>" ) ) ;
XMLType xmlIn = new XMLType ( connection, doc ) ;
ps.setObject (3,  xmlIn ) ;

You can download the required JAR files from:

http://www.oracle.com/technology/tech/xml/xdk/software/prod/xdk_java.html

Or they would be available with your Oracle database installation
