I am building a script running utility and have a question about end of batch 'signals' in scripts that contain multiple batches. That is, symbols like ';' (semi-colon used by Oracle and DB2) or the 'GO' (used by SQL Server), used to separate multiple batches within a single script file.
Can anyone suggest how to handle multiple batches within a single script file? I would simply like to read in the script file to a string and run it, but I know this will cause the SQL statement to fail. I am figuring I will need to parse this somehow while reading in the file.
Am I on the write track? Or can someone suggest a better or simpler, or more eligant solution? Not necessarily the details, but a push in the right direction would be nice.
Thanks.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
