any replacement for ArrayDescriptor

Hi, I am using stored procedure which received the java array I passed like this:

public class ArrayDemo

public static void passArray() throws SQLException
Connection conn =
new OracleDriver().defaultConnection();

int intArray[] = { 1,2,3,4,5,6 };

ArrayDescriptor descriptor =
ArrayDescriptor.createDescriptor( "NUM_ARRAY", conn );

ARRAY array_to_pass =
new ARRAY( descriptor, conn, intArray );
OraclePreparedStatement ps =
( "begin give_me_an_array(:x); end;" );
ps.setARRAY( 1, array_to_pass );
Somehow, my company does not allow us to use any oracle extension on JDBC, and we only can use API that used in standard JDBC. But in standard JDBC, I can not find a equivalent object as oracle's ArrayDescriptor, and there is not constructor for java.sql.Array, thus I do not know how to construct an Array object in Java side.

What should I do then? Is it impossible for me to avoid oracle's extention?

As far as I know, you must use Oracle-specific classes to achieve this.
The only thing I can suggest, is perhaps try a non-Oracle JDBC driver.
Pardon me but I am not familiar with any, myself, so I cannot help you there.

Good Luck,
I agree. Here's the link:
