JAVA Postgres insert Problem

Hi there,

I am writing a database app in java and do hava a problem with inserting a value into the table.

So here it is: I have created the database in postgres and made a table named "klient"
There is a column named id_klienta which is an autoincremented primery key (there is also a sequence called idklienta_seq that is responsible for autoincrementation).

When I try to start the insert method I got the Exception:
missing from-clause for table "idklienta"

Here is the Java code:



Eclipse says there is a problem in the
pst.execute(); - KlientDB class.
If you could help me to fix that problem that would bu really great.

Welcome to CodeRanch! I added code tags to make the code easier to read.

I've never seen this syntax before in postgres:

Are you sure it is right? Do you have an example you got it from?

You are right...
I tried different options and found out the right one. It should be nextval('idklienta_seq ') so the try block is:


Thanks for help!
