No errors but no update on table

I have the following code:

When I step through the code it seems to be fine - no exceptions thrown, etc. However, the change does not appear in the database. I have the correct database name in server.xml. Why would this be failing? BTW, I am trying this because when I tried Spring's jdbc, the table would be corrupted each time, and I had to delete the table and start over.

Can you insert a println or check in the debugger that the commit is getting executed?

Are you certain that the row to be updated exists in the DB?

Also, I'd prefer to do this, it's much more obvious what you are trying to do:

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.3, SCBCD 1.3
I agree. Here's the link:
