I am executing a batch to update a long field in Oracle thru JDBC. I am using statement.execute(Begin....Update...end I am able to do it succesfully on my PC. But when I deploy it on Weblogic6.1 the program hangs indefinitely. I also tried using prepared statement with bind variable but I am not able to bind huge amounts of data. I have read somewhere on the net that WebLogic 6.1 does not support executing batches..if thats the case whats the work around. How can I update a Long column in Oracle thru JDBC deployed on a Weblogic 6.1 Server Pls Help !!!
