Hello!
i would like to know what is the correct syntax for a query which takes as parameter a String and then fetches all the rows which have this String or part of the String!
i use String SQL_Movie_Results="select id from myTable where name like '%"+searchTerm+"%'"; inside my fuction,whose signature is

public List searchByName(String searchTerm)throws Exception.

my problem is that i have tried several different approaches in syntax but i could not put the value of searchTerm betweet %%.it always says :
select id from myTable where name like '%null%'".
what is wrong with my query?
please help

searchTerm is null. Check your code where you call this method, make sure you are setting the value as you expect.
