Hello to all,

I'm a new member and I have almost no experience in Java and JDBC, I've only programmed in C. I have an assignment for my Database course and I've been struggling for some days with a problem I can't fix.

After running the code in the Eclipse IDE I get the error ORA-00936: missing expression tips. I've used the debugger and I guess the problem is in this part of the code:



The idea is to use prepared statements to then pass a parameter to the query at the execution time. This parameter is a number which correspondes to the CourseID of a given course in the COURSE table. Can you spot any problem?


Thank you very much in advance.

Regards,

Joao Freitas

Please wrap your code in code tags to make it easier to read

Your SQL is wrong. It should be



You have extra commas

ETA: It's helpful to run your queries through database before putting them in code. Usually I use SQL developer to build and test my queries before dropping them in code. It gives you the line and col number where your SQL is wrong
