I have a stored function which takes two string parameter and return a boolean value (true/false).
Now using jdbc how do i get this boolean value. Below is my code.

package mypackage4;

import java.sql.*;

public class hi{

public static void main(String ss[]){
Connection conn = null;
conn = DriverManager.getConnection ( " jdbc racle:thin:@","ccls","ccls");
//Man -begin

//Man begin - added for checking the obselete property of TPHShape
System.out.println("Before calling procedure");
// conn.setAutoCommit(false);
CallableStatement callstmt = conn.prepareCall("{? = call IS_TPH_OBSOLETE(?,?)}");
System.out.println("procedure called with conn "+conn+" and callstmt "+callstmt);
System.out.println("Checking bit");
callstmt.setString( 2, "ABCD1" );
callstmt.setString( 3, "ENG" );
System.out.println(" called ...");
System.out.println("********* In my code value received is ***");
boolean bh = callstmt.getBoolean(1);
System.out.println("********* In my code value received is ***");
}catch(Exception er){
System.out.println("Error here only");


its giveing error at "callstmt.execute()"
java.sql.SQLException: ORA-06550: line 1, column 13:
PLS-00382: expression is of wrong type

maybe post the source of the pl/sql function.

From the Oracle9i JDBC Developer's Guide and Reference: "the JDBC drivers do not support the passing of BOOLEAN parameters to PL/SQL stored procedures."
It is talking about passing to a stored procedure, and you are returning a BOOLEAN from your stored procedure, however; maybe the BOOLEAN is the issue.

Funny how things tie together sometimes. I just ran across some doc that says that return values of BOOLEAN from PL/SQL are not supported by JDBC>
I agree. Here's the link:
