Dunno why everything else is running smoothly(insert/update/select)
but when I try to delete a row, it seems to fail but no exceptions are thrown.
ANy reason why this could be happening?? any thoughts at all??
I can delete at the sqlplus prompt but not thru jdbc

Does the user account you're using within your program have delete rights?

are you by chance using MSAccess? If you are, there is a known bug while inserting/deleting. Just do a trivial select to the table after you insert/delete a row and it should magically appear ( kind of like a kickstart! ).
If you are not using MSAccess, you should post the code snippet giving you the problems.
Make sure you are committing the delete as well.
I agree. Here's the link:
