I am using MySql with JDBC...the below is my table definition
CREATE TABLE `A` (
`id` int(255) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`type` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
`value` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
UNIQUE KEY `unq` (`type`(50),`value`(50))
) ENGINE=InnoDB AUTO_INCREMENT=1 DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;
At the moment i am using statement in order to batch insert rows to that table with RETURN_GENERATED_KEYS option in order to relate the id to other table.
I want the ability to perform that operation but when / if DUPLICATE ENTRY occur ( the same combination of type & value ) to continue with the transaction as like nothing happens but still to get the generated keys, and if DUPLICATE ENTRY occur retrieve the existing key.
