The inheritance hierarchy for JDBC statements puzzles me a little.
Specifically, why would PreparedStatement and CallableStatement want to inherit some of the methods of Statement?

For example, I tried the following:


I tried code similar to the above with MS SQL Server 2000 driver, only to be given an exception.
Why does the JDBC API allow this behaviour?
Is there ever a reason why you'd do such a thing?
Is it a fair statement that some of the Statement methods should never be called on a PreparedStatement (and CallableStatement) instance?

Advice is most appreciated.
