Callable statement syntax

In JDBC, we use callable statement to call stored procedure in database. Following code snippet does that work.

Assume table, and range variables declared earlier

String sql = "{call " + NEXT_KEY_PROCEDURE + "('" + table + "', " + range
+ ", ?)}";

CallableStatement cs = con.prepareCall(sql);
cs.registerOutParameter(1, Types.NUMERIC);
cs.execute();

What is the significance of curly braces {} in the syntax?
Can we use PrepareStatement to call stored procedure?

Amol,
The braces are the escape syntax for stored procedures.

While using a PreparedStatement to call a stored procedure might work, it is risky because it might not. Or you could upgrade your driver and have it not work. It is better to use the intended CallableStatement subclass.

Thanks a lot.
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
