Hi

I am trying to bind a lot of variable to prepared statements and everytime i have to check for null and then introduce setNull instead of setInt or setLong .  Is there anything else i can do to make the code look more clean and remove the redundant code ?

currently its like - if(value != null)
                             ps.setInt (1,value)
                             else
                             ps.setNull(1,Type)

You should consider switching to a library like QueryRunner from Apache:
http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-dbutils/examples.html

It allows you to write much simpler client code like:

Object[] result = run.query("SELECT * FROM Person WHERE name=?", h, "John Doe");

where the "query" method handles all of the encoding as a prepared statement (including calls to setNull etc.) for you.

The even more important functionality (and the real win for QueryRunner) is that it releases you from creating and *correctly closing* database connections.  That's all handled by the QueryRunner class.

It's well worth checking out,

You can use the setObject() method instead to clean up that code. You haven't stated what Database you are using, so as per the Javadoc for this method, you may or may not need the third parameter, but try it either way and see what works for you.
Integer intValue = 5;
ps.setObject(1, intValue, Types.INTEGER);

Long longValue = 123L;
ps.setObject(2, longValue, Types.BIGINT);

Open in new window

Note if you DO require to keep the 3rd parameter and you are interested in what all the mappings are between Java and JDBC/SQL, then check out this page...
