I am entering a big string which may consist of special character especially quotes("). I need to insert in to the database as string. I am using MYSQL. In MySql Strings need to be enclosed with quotes.
My problem is when i insert strings which consists of quotes it is giving error as it is not able to identify the quotes that are enclosed and the quotes that are within the string.
please help me in this regard.

Use the java.sql.PreparedStatement class. You prepare your query using question marks ("?") as placeholders, and then PreparedStatement does the work of escaping the special characters in your strings for you. Works great.
I'm going to move this to our JDBC forum for followup.
