Typically triggers are set to be invoked when someone inserts, updates, or deletes a row in the database. I don't think that triggers can be executed directly. If you need to do some sort of direct execution, use a stored procedure. Or execute the appropriate SQL from your code.

createPreparedStatement --> no such method...which leads me to believe you may need to have a read through Sun's
JDBC tutorial for the basic's.
