i have an application that is running against an oracle10g database.  when i try to perform certain operations in the application, it comes back with the error:

ORA-01795: maximum number of expressions in a list is 1000

then, i look at the sql that is generated and i have:

select <some things> from <table> where <a thing> IN (thing1, thing2, 1000+ more);



can i accomidate more than 1000 expressions in IN clause?if not accomdate in oracle how to write it in java(if there are 5000 records)?

As said you cannot, So what you can do as a work around is put all those values in a temporary table and then write IN (Select Value From TempTable) kindoff.

you can split if more than 1000 like this;
select val from table where (col in (1...1000) or col in (1001...2000) )

but it is not efficient but works.
