Oracle prepare statement batch mode

marrowyung used Ask the Experts™

I am reading:

for Oracle prepared statement.

and I do not understand what it means as it says:

Starting from Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1), Oracle update batching is deprecated. Oracle recommends that you use standard JDBC batching instead of Oracle update batching.

when I check standard JDBC batching it says:

The Oracle implementation of standard update batching does not implement true batching for generic statements and callable statements. Even though Oracle JDBC supports the use of standard batching for Statement and CallableStatement objects, you are[b][u] unlikely[/u][/b] to see performance improvement.

so in order to use a  REAL batch mode for PL/SQL prepare statement, what should I do ?

or it means must be handle in java library when calling:

Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();

stmt.addBatch("INSERT INTO emp VALUES(1000, 'Joe Jones')");
stmt.addBatch("INSERT INTO dept VALUES(260, 'Sales')");
stmt.addBatch("INSERT INTO emp_dept VALUES(1000, 260)");

Open in new window


then it still related to prepared statement ?

For prepared statement it will be something like:

PreparedStatement stmt = conn.prepareStatement("INSERT INTO emp VALUES(?, ?)");
stmt.setString(2,'Joe Jones');

AFAIK the doc you mention say there's no improvement for generic (no bind)  and callable (stored functions) statements. But I think there is for prepared statements.
