Surprisingly I don't think you can.

Recently I implemented a performance monitoring driver ( that needed to see what sql was associated with a PreparedStatement and I kept the info in a WeakHashMap to do that. WeakHashMap contents are garbage collected when they go out of scope. Very cool.

map.put(preparedStatement, sqlString);

Then you look up the sqlString by passing the preparedStatement back to the map when it is needed. - a fast, free open source performance tuning api.

Take a look at the FAQ entry titled "How do I view the actual SQL that a PreparedStatement is sending to the database?"

"Jinto KL", I can see you have been at the JavaRanch for a while. But it looks like nobody mentioned that we do require members to have valid display names.

Display names must be two words: your first name, a space, then your last name. Fictitious names are not allowed. ("KL" is not a last name.)

Please edit your profile and correct your display name since accounts with incorrect display names will be deleted.
I agree. Here's the link:
