I have a SQL statement as such:

 select * from User where usder_id IN (?)

I'm using the PreparedStatement class and I dont see an obvious wat to bind my java.util.List of ids.
The closest I found is PreparedStatement.setArray(index, java.sql.Array)
But it is not clear what implementation class I can use for that call (since java.sql.Arrayis an interface)

Please advise. thanks!

The short answer is - you can't. You need to build up the set 'manually' and use an ordinary statement

>>that is surprising!

Well yes and no. If you think about it, a PreparedStatement works on the principle of known and finite parameters. The only variable is the magnitude of the parameter. The statement can be given anything (including nothing) in a set

>>do you generally just build a stringbuffer with the (...) contents?

Exactly. StringBuilder for recent Java versions
