My driver claims to support JDBC 2.0, but some methods get an unsupported exception. How can I verify that the driver will work?
The DatabaseMetaData class has a large number of supportsXXX methods which you can use to ensure that the operation will proceed or otherwise provide a workaround. See the API documentation for d...more
Null capability is a column integrity constraint, normally aplied at table creation time. Note that some databases won't allow the constraint to be applied after table creation. Most databases a...more
I've heard that I can save space by allowing NULLs for columns where no value is supplied. Is that correct?
While the answer is ultimately dependent on your specific DBMS, most databases create an extra byte for every null capable column to mark whether or not it contains a null value. This clearly mea...more

I'm using the Oracle thin driver to update a batch of records using a prepared statement, addBatch() and executeBatch(). All of the updates go through fine and the data is updated correctly, but all of the updateCounts returned are "-2". I haven't been able to find any documentation for the thin driver, so I don't know if this return code is something I should be worried about, or if I should just ignore it.
From the JDK 1.3 Statement.executeBatch() API documentation: "A value of -2 -- indicates that the command was processed successfully but that the number of rows affected is unknown." See the docu...more
What is the JDBC equivalent of "ODBC Data Source Administrator" ODBC Data Source Administartor facilitates for selecting a driver and setting up all data source specific attributes to establish a connection to the data store(DSN). To incorporate such a functionality in my software, is there any counterpart which I can use for JDBC drivers?
There is not a JDBC specific equivalent, but the Java way, typically, is to use properties files or ResourceBundles. For an example, see Generalizing Connection Information--Batch in my JDBC 2.0 ...more
