This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
The error message seems plausible, because 5,438,954,444 would be too big a value for an int variable. As I understand it, an int can hold values between -2,147,483,648 and 2,147,483,647. So the question is what is really in your table - is this big value really in there, or is it created accidentally in your Java code? If the value is correct, then maybe you need to use a long variable in Java instead.
Why don't you run your SQL separately in your database's SQL interface, so you can check what's really in your table? Then you'll know whether the problem is data or code.
