i'm using this code:

but i get an error:
java.sql.SQLException: Can not issue data manipulation statements with executeQuery().

is it not possible to use my insert sql with '?' and preparedstatements?

Of course it is possible. But (as the error message says) you cannot use the executeQuery() method to do that. You should use the executeUpdate() method instead.
