Calling stored procedures from Java Servlet

If I need to call a stored procedure with 6 input parameters and 6 output parameters, how would I do this? Would it look like this?...
cstmt = con.prepareCall("{?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ? = CALL MKTDS22B (?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?)}");
or this?...
cstmt = con.prepareCall("(CALL MKTDS22B (?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ? ,?))" );
Please help! Thanks!

Try the JDBC Documentation at
You'll probably get a much better response if you post in the JDBC forum instead of the Servlet forum, since this question has nothing to do with Servlets. Bartender, can you move it? Also, you should try searching the JDBC forum for similar questions that may have answers already.

Calling a stored procedure from a servlet is a bad idea and usually indicates a poor design. You may want to add a layer of abstraction between your servlet and your data access calls, such as a data access object.

This is a cross post in the JDBC forum.
I agree. Here's the link:
