Yeah, why wouldn't you be able to? For the most part, JDBC does not validate or even understand the SQL you send to the database server other than its just a SQL String.

Jigar,
Yes, you can build a Statement's SQL through String concatenation.

Note that you cannot write "insert into table ? ..." in a PreparedStatement though.
