I wonder if anyone can help. I am writing a class which uses a JDBC PreparedStatement object to call a stored procedure on an Oracle database. To create the PreparedStatement object I use the prepareStatement method of the Connection object. I do not create the Connection object - this is important - it is passed into my method by another piece of code I cannot change.
I need to specify some connection properties - specifically 'SetBigStringTryClob'. All the documentation I can find says that properties such as this can be passed to the Connection when it is created via a Properties object like this:
I cant do this as I dont create the Connection object. What I can do is specify the URL, so I'm thinking I should be able to specify my connection properities as url parameters - but I cant get it to work and I cant find anything anywhere that tells me how to do it.
Alternatively I'm thinking that maybe there is a method of Connection where I can specify these properties - essentially after its been created - but again, I cant find anything
Any help with this would be very much appreciated;
