I want to insert some Data into a table of an oracle db using a servlet.
Executing the insert-statement at the servlet, I receive the following exception. But there is no error when I start the insert-statment directly on the db.
java.sql.SQLException: ORA-02291: Versto� gegen Constraint (TIME.FK_LVB_ID). �bergeordn. Schl�ssel nicht gefunden

The error message (java.sql.SQLException: ORA-02291) indicates a constraint violation where a parent key is not found. The constraint is "TIME.FK_LVB_ID", so that is where you should start looking. Your insert statement is violating that constraint. It should have nothing to do with whether the statement is being run in a JSP, in a Java app, or directly against the database.
You might also think about using the "executeUpdate()" method when doing a DELETE/UPDATE/INSERT rather than using "executeQuery()" Some drivers don't let you do updates when invoking "executeQuery()". In your case you should be OK since Oracle allows this, but it's good practice to use "executeQuery()" on when doing a "SELECT" and "executeUpdate()" in other cases.
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
