I'm doing a SELECT with a fairly large IN clause. I've seen comments about batching where people tell you to use something like batch sizes of 51, 11, 4, then 1. I know you can't bind a '?' to a list of items, but do I need to create 4 preparedstatements and have the respective number of '?' in my list to properly take advantage of the speed up of a prepared statement, or is it enough to build the list myself without the use of '?' ?
