Hi, we are facing a problem with the use of SybPreparedStatement.addBatch() when we are trying to use the same for a batch insert into the Sybase database using jConnect4.2 as jdbc driver. We are getting the exception java.lang.AbstractMethodError: com/sybase/jdbc/SybPreparedStatement.addBatch We could find that addBatch() was not implemented in com/sybase/jdbc/SybPreparedStatement when the class was decompiled from jConnect42.zip downloaded from sybase.com We are using Sybase ASE 12.5 and JDK 1.4. Can any one throw some light on this ?? Is there any alternative approach by which a batch insert can be performed on a sybase database ? Thanks in advance, Aby & Prakasan.
