JDBC question

I have connected properly to my database with the following JDBC connection

jdbc:db2://localhost:50000/TEST:user=instuid;password=instpw;

Open in new window


So I am trying a JDBC SELECT statement as follows:

SELECT ACCTNUM FROM ACCOUNT WHERE ACCTNUM = '11111'

Open in new window


... and I get the following error:

C:\curl>curl http://localhost:8081
DB2 SQL Error: SQLCODE=-204, SQLSTATE=42704, SQLERRMC=INSTUID.ACCOUNT, DRIVER=3.
63.123 (com.ibm.db2.jcc.am.SqlSyntaxErrorException). Message payload is of type:
 String

Open in new window


How can I fix this

Thanks

Test the "simple case" first.

SELECT ACCTNUM FROM ACCOUNT

What happens with that?

-204 means the table does not exists or you don't have permissions to read it
Are you sure its in the inst schema?

Hi!

When you connect to a database as a particular user the default schema is the users schema.
So if the table is in the  users schema then you can issue sql query like this

SELECT ACCTNUM FROM ACCOUNT WHERE ACCTNUM = '11111'

Open in new window


otherwise you will need to query it like this

SELECT ACCTNUM FROM THESCHEMA.ACCOUNT WHERE ACCTNUM = '11111'

Open in new window


where THESCHEMA is the schema where the table/view ACCOUNT or it's alias.
