Hi,
I wonder is it fine to use any of the two methods
-Statement : execute
-Statemetn : executeUpdate
when one is to pass a create table .. ddl statement to a database?

Hi
Both will serve the purpose i think.But generally,DDL statements like create,alter,drop are used with execute() and DML statements like insert,update and etc are used with exeuteUpdate() method.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
