I have a PreparedStatement with alot of values to insert into an Oracle Database.
Anyway to shorten the setString lines in a loop or any other way to shorten this??

[added line breaks so page doesn't wrap horizontally]

You could shorten the code by having a method that loops through a string array and calls setString on each element.

However, I think the current code is clearer. It seems like coincidence that all the values are strings. What if you had a date field? I expect you would want to call setDate rather than setString.
