Notice that this is using MySQL and that Cups and Entry are INTEGERS and Customer is a VARCHAR. But when I run the following snippet from another program:
It doesn't print that Entry is of type int. I get an error stating that my driver org.gjt.mm.mysql.jdbc2.NotImplemented What are the equivalent conversions from MySQL to Java? I am able to retreive the data and work with it, but when it tries to find its class equivalent, I get an error. Thanks for your attention to my problem. Brian
The DatabaseMetaData interface provides a getTypeInfo() method. This returns a result set that includes every type name recognized by the connection and the equivalent java.sql.Types constant that it maps to. With a switch statement, you can equate this to the appropriate java.sql.Types name.
