Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
About this information
This information describes DB2® for z/OS® support for Java™. This support lets
you access relational databases from Java application programs.
This information assumes that your DB2 subsystem is running in Version 11
new-function mode. Generally, new functions that are described, including changes
to existing functions, statements, and limits, are available only in new-function
mode, unless explicitly stated otherwise. Exceptions to this general statement
include optimization and virtual storage enhancements, which are also available in
conversion mode unless stated otherwise. In Versions 8 and 9, most utility
functions were available in conversion mode. However, for Version 11, most utility
functions work only in new-function mode.
Who should read this information
This information is for the following users:
v DB2 for z/OS application developers who are familiar with Structured Query
Language (SQL) and who know the Java programming language.
v DB2 for z/OS system programmers who are installing JDBC and SQLJ support.
DB2 Utilities Suite
Important: In this version of DB2 for z/OS, the DB2 Utilities Suite is available as
an optional product. You must separately order and purchase a license to such
utilities, and discussion of those utility functions in this publication is not intended
to otherwise imply that you have a license to them.
The DB2 Utilities Suite can work with DB2 Sort and the DFSORT program, which
you are licensed to use in support of the DB2 utilities even if you do not otherwise
license DFSORT for general use. If your primary sort product is not DFSORT,
consider the following informational APARs mandatory reading:
v II14047/II14213: USE OF DFSORT BY DB2 UTILITIES
v II13495: HOW DFSORT TAKES ADVANTAGE OF 64-BIT REAL
ARCHITECTURE
These informational APARs are periodically updated.

How to read syntax diagrams
Certain conventions apply to the syntax diagrams that are used in IBM
documentation.
Apply the following rules when reading the syntax diagrams that are used in DB2
for z/OS documentation:
v Read the syntax diagrams from left to right, from top to bottom, following the
path of the line.
The ─── symbol indicates the beginning of a statement.
The ─── symbol indicates that the statement syntax is continued on the next
line.
The ─── symbol indicates that a statement is continued from the previous line.
The ─── symbol indicates the end of a statement.
v Required items appear on the horizontal line (the main path).
required_item
v Optional items appear below the main path.
required_item
optional_item
If an optional item appears above the main path, that item has no effect on the
execution of the statement and is used only for readability.
optional_item
required_item
v If you can choose from two or more items, they appear vertically, in a stack.
If you must choose one of the items, one item of the stack appears on the main
path.
required_item
required_choice1
required_choice2
If choosing one of the items is optional, the entire stack appears below the main
path.
About this information
xi
required_item
optional_choice1
optional_choice2
If one of the items is the default, it appears above the main path and the
remaining choices are shown below.
default_choice
required_item
optional_choice
optional_choice
v An arrow returning to the left, above the main line, indicates an item that can be
repeated.
required_item repeatable_item
If the repeat arrow contains a comma, you must separate repeated items with a
comma.
,
required_item repeatable_item
A repeat arrow above a stack indicates that you can repeat the items in the
stack.
v Sometimes a diagram must be split into fragments. The syntax fragment is
shown separately from the main syntax diagram, but the contents of the
fragment should be read as if they are on the main path of the diagram.
required_item
fragment-name
fragment-name:
required_item
optional_name
v With the exception of XPath keywords, keywords appear in uppercase (for
example, FROM). Keywords must be spelled exactly as shown. XPath keywords
are defined as lowercase names, and must be spelled exactly as shown. Variables
appear in all lowercase letters (for example, column-name). They represent
user-supplied names or values.
v If punctuation marks, parentheses, arithmetic operators, or other such symbols
are shown, you must enter them as part of the syntax.

Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Chapter 1. Java application development for IBM data servers
The DB2 and IBM Informix® database systems provide driver support for client
applications and applets that are written in Java.
You can access data in DB2 and IBM Informix database systems using JDBC, SQL,
or pureQuery®.
JDBC
JDBC is an application programming interface (API) that Java applications use to
access relational databases. IBM data server support for JDBC lets you write Java
applications that access local DB2 or IBM Informix data or remote relational data
on a server that supports DRDA®.
SQLJ
SQLJ provides support for embedded static SQL in Java applications. SQLJ was
initially developed by IBM, Oracle, and Tandem to complement the dynamic SQL
JDBC model with a static SQL model.
For connections to DB2, in general, Java applications use JDBC for dynamic SQL
and SQLJ for static SQL.
For connections to IBM Informix, SQL statements in JDBC or SQLJ applications run
dynamically.
Because SQLJ can inter-operate with JDBC, an application program can use JDBC
and SQLJ within the same unit of work.
pureQuery
pureQuery is a high-performance data access platform that makes it easier to
develop, optimize, secure, and manage data access. It consists of:
v Application programming interfaces that are built for ease of use and for
simplifying the use of best practices
v Development tools, which are delivered in IBM InfoSphere® Optim™
Development Studio, for Java and SQL development
v A runtime, which is delivered in IBM InfoSphere Optim pureQuery Runtime, for
optimizing and securing database access and simplifying management tasks
With pureQuery, you can write Java applications that treat relational data as
objects, whether that data is in databases or JDBC DataSource objects. Your
applications can also treat objects that are stored in in-memory Java collections as
though those objects are relational data. To query or update your relational data or
Java objects, you use SQL.
For more information on pureQuery, see the Integrated Data Management
Information Center.

Chapter 2. Supported drivers for JDBC and SQLJ
The DB2 product includes support for two types of JDBC driver architecture.
According to the JDBC specification, there are four types of JDBC driver
architectures:
Type 1
Drivers that implement the JDBC API as a mapping to another data access API,
such as Open Database Connectivity (ODBC). Drivers of this type are generally
dependent on a native library, which limits their portability. The DB2 database
system does not provide a type 1 driver.
Type 2
Drivers that are written partly in the Java programming language and partly in
native code. The drivers use a native client library specific to the data source to
which they connect. Because of the native code, their portability is limited.
Type 3
Drivers that use a pure Java client and communicate with a data server using a
data-server-independent protocol. The data server then communicates the
client's requests to the data source. The DB2 database system does not provide
a type 3 driver.
Type 4
Drivers that are pure Java and implement the network protocol for a specific
data source. The client connects directly to the data source.
DB2 for z/OS supports the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, which
combines type 2 and type 4 JDBC implementations. The driver is packaged in the
following way:
v db2jcc.jar and sqlj.zip for JDBC 3.0 and earlier support
v db2jcc4.jar and sqlj4.zip for JDBC 4.0 or later, and JDBC 3.0 or earlier support
You control the level of JDBC support that you want by specifying the appropriate
set of files in the CLASSPATH.
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ (type 2 and type 4)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ is a single driver that includes
JDBC type 2 and JDBC type 4 behavior. When an application loads the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, a single driver instance is loaded for type 2 and
type 4 implementations. The application can make type 2 and type 4 connections
using this single driver instance. The type 2 and type 4 connections can be made
concurrently. IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 driver behavior is
referred to as IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity. IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 driver behavior is referred to as IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity.
Two versions of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ are available. IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 3.5x is JDBC 3.0-compliant. IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 4.x is compliant with JDBC 4.0 or
later.
© Copyright IBM Corp. 1998, 2013
3
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports these JDBC and SQLJ
functions:
v Version 3.5x supports all of the methods that are described in the JDBC 3.0
specifications.
v Version 4.x supports all of the methods that are described in the JDBC 4.0 or
later specifications.
v SQLJ application programming interfaces, as defined by the SQLJ standards, for
simplified data access from Java applications.
v Connections that are enabled for connection pooling. WebSphere® Application
Server or another application server does the connection pooling.
v Connections to a data server from Java user-defined functions and stored
procedures use IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity
only. Applications that call user-defined functions or stored procedures can use
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity or IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity to connect to a data server.
v Support for distributed transaction management. This support implements the
Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) Java Transaction Service (JTS) and Java
Transaction API (JTA) specifications, which conform to the X/Open standard for
distributed transactions (Distributed Transaction Processing: The XA Specification,
available from http://www.opengroup.org) (IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ type 4 connectivity to DB2 for z/OS environment, Version 7 or later,
or to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows).
In general, you should use IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity for Java programs that run on the same z/OS system or zSeries®
logical partition (LPAR) as the target DB2 subsystem. Use IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity for Java programs that run on a different
z/OS system or LPAR from the target DB2 subsystem.
For z/OS systems or LPARs that do not have DB2 for z/OS, the z/OS Application
Connectivity to DB2 for z/OS optional feature can be installed to provide IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity to a DB2 for Linux,
UNIX, and Windows data server.
To use the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, you need Java 2
Technology Edition, V5 or later.

JDBC driver and database version compatibility
The compatibility of a particular version of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ with a database version depends on the type of driver connectivity that
you are using and the type of data source to which you are connecting.
Compatibility for IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type
4 connectivity
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ is always downward compatible
with DB2 databases at the previous release level. For example, IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity from the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ version 3.61, which is shipped with DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and
Windows Version 9.7 Fix Pack 3, to a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Version
8 database is supported.
4
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ is upward compatible with the
next version of a DB2 database if the applications under which the driver runs use
no new features. For example, IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4
connectivity from the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 2.x,
which is shipped with DB2 for z/OS Version 8, to a DB2 for z/OS Version 9.1
database is supported, if the applications under which the driver runs contain no
DB2 for z/OS Version 9.1 features.
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity to IBM Informix is
supported only for IBM Informix Version 11 and later.
Compatibility for IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type
2 connectivity
In general, IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity is
intended for connections to the local database system, using the driver version that
is shipped with that database version. For example, version 3.6x of the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ is shipped with DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and
Windows Version 9.5 and Version 9.7, and DB2 for z/OS Version 8 and later.
However, for IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to a
local DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows database, the database version can be
one version earlier or one version later than the DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and
Windows version with which the driver was shipped. For IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to a local DB2 for z/OS subsystem, the
subsystem version can be one version later than the DB2 for z/OS version with
which the driver was shipped.
If the database version to which your applications are connecting is later than the
database version with which the driver was shipped, the applications cannot use
features of the later database version.

Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
Writing a JDBC application has much in common with writing an SQL application
in any other language.
In general, you need to do the following things:
v Access the Java packages that contain JDBC methods.
v Declare variables for sending data to or retrieving data from DB2 tables.
v Connect to a data source.
v Execute SQL statements.
v Handle SQL errors and warnings.
v Disconnect from the data source.
Although the tasks that you need to perform are similar to those in other
languages, the way that you execute those tasks is somewhat different.
Example of a simple JDBC application
A simple JDBC application demonstrates the basic elements that JDBC applications
need to include.

Description
This statement imports the java.sql package, which contains the JDBC core API.
For information on other Java packages that you might need to access, see "Java
packages for JDBC support".
String variable empNo performs the function of a host variable. That is, it is
used to hold data retrieved from an SQL query. See "Variables in JDBC
applications" for more information.
These two sets of statements demonstrate how to connect to a data source using
one of two available interfaces. See "How JDBC applications connect to a data
source" for more details.
Step 3a (loading the JDBC driver) is not necessary if you use JDBC 4.0 or later.
These two sets of statements demonstrate how to perform a SELECT in JDBC.
For information on how to perform other SQL operations, see "JDBC interfaces
for executing SQL".
This try/catch block demonstrates the use of the SQLException class for SQL
error handling. For more information on handling SQL errors, see "Handling an
SQLException under the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ". For
information on handling SQL warnings, see "Handling an SQLWarning under
the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ".
This statement disconnects the application from the data source. See
"Disconnecting from data sources in JDBC applications".

How JDBC applications connect to a data source
Before you can execute SQL statements in any SQL program, you must be
connected to a data source.
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports type 2 and type 4
connectivity. Connections to DB2 databases can use type 2 or type 4 connectivity.
Connections to IBM Informix databases can use type 4 connectivity.

Connecting to a data source using the DriverManager
interface with the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
A JDBC application can establish a connection to a data source using the JDBC
DriverManager interface, which is part of the java.sql package.
Procedure
The steps for establishing a connection are:
1. Load the JDBC driver by invoking the Class.forName method.
If you are using JDBC 4.0 or later, you do not need to explicitly load the JDBC
driver.
For the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, you load the driver by
invoking the Class.forName method with the following argument:
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Driver
For compatibility with previous JDBC drivers, you can use the following
argument instead:
COM.ibm.db2os390.sqlj.jdbc.DB2SQLJDriver
The following code demonstrates loading the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ:
try {
// Load the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ with DriverManager
Class.forName("com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Driver");
} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
The catch block is used to print an error if the driver is not found.
2. Connect to a data source by invoking the DriverManager.getConnection
method.
You can use one of the following forms of getConnection:
getConnection(String url);
getConnection(String url, user, password);
getConnection(String url, java.util.Properties info);
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity, the
getConnection method must specify a user ID and password, through
parameters or through property values.
The url argument represents a data source, and indicates what type of JDBC
connectivity you are using.
The info argument is an object of type java.util.Properties that contains a set
of driver properties for the connection. Specifying the info argument is an
alternative to specifying property=value; strings in the URL. See "Properties for
the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ" for the properties that you can
specify.
There are several ways to specify a user ID and password for a connection:
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
15
v Use the form of the getConnection method that specifies url with
property=value; clauses, and include the user and password properties in the
URL.
v Use the form of the getConnection method that specifies user and password.
v Use the form of the getConnection method that specifies info, after setting the
user and password properties in a java.util.Properties object.
Examples
Example: Establishing a connection and setting the user ID and password in a URL:
String url = "jdbc:db2://myhost:5021/mydb:" +
"user=dbadm;password=dbadm;";
// Set URL for data source
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(url);
// Create connection
Example: Establishing a connection and setting the user ID and password in user and
password parameters:
String url = "jdbc:db2://myhost:5021/mydb";
// Set URL for data source
String user = "dbadm";
String password = "dbadm";
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(url, user, password);
// Create connection
Example: Establishing a connection and setting the user ID and password in a
java.util.Properties object:
Properties properties = new Properties(); // Create Properties object
properties.put("user", "dbadm");
// Set user ID for connection
properties.put("password", "dbadm");
// Set password for connection
String url = "jdbc:db2://myhost:5021/mydb";
// Set URL for data source
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(url, properties);
// Create connection

IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity URL
option descriptions
The parts of the URL have the following meanings:
jdbc:db2: or jdbc:db2j:net:
The meanings of the initial portion of the URL are:
jdbc:db2:
Indicates that the connection is to a DB2 for z/OS, DB2 for Linux,
UNIX, and Windows.
jdbc:db2: can also be used for a connection to an IBM Informix
database, for application portability.
jdbc:db2j:net:
Indicates that the connection is to a remote IBM Cloudscape server.
jdbc:ids:
Indicates that the connection is to an IBM Informix data source.
jdbc:informix-sqli: also indicates that the connection is to an IBM
Informix data source, but jdbc:ids: should be used.
server
The domain name or IP address of the data source.
port
The TCP/IP server port number that is assigned to the data source. This is an
integer between 0 and 65535. The default is 446.
database
A name for the data source.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
17
v If the connection is to a DB2 for z/OS server, database is the DB2 location
name that is defined during installation. All characters in the DB2 location
name must be uppercase characters. The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ does not convert lowercase characters in the database value to
uppercase for IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4
connectivity.
You can determine the location name by executing the following SQL
statement on the server:
SELECT CURRENT SERVER FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1;
v If the connection is to a DB2 for z/OS server or a DB2 for i server, all
characters in database must be uppercase characters.
v If the connection is to a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows server, database
is the database name that is defined during installation.
v If the connection is to an IBM Informix server, database is the database name.
The name is case-insensitive. The server converts the name to lowercase.
v If the connection is to an IBM Cloudscape server, the database is the
fully-qualified name of the file that contains the database. This name must
be enclosed in double quotation marks ("). For example:
"c:/databases/testdb"
property=value;
A property and its value for the JDBC connection. You can specify one or more
property and value pairs. Each property and value pair, including the last one,
must end with a semicolon (;). Do not include spaces or other white space
characters anywhere within the list of property and value strings.
Some properties with an int data type have predefined constant field values.
You must resolve constant field values to their integer values before you can
use those values in the url parameter. For example, you cannot use
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.TRACE_ALL in a url parameter. However,
you can build a URL string that includes
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.TRACE_ALL, and assign the URL string
to a String variable. Then you can use the String variable in the url parameter:
String url =
"jdbc:db2://sysmvs1.stl.ibm.com:5021/STLEC1" +
":user=dbadm;password=dbadm;" +
"traceLevel=" +
(com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.TRACE_ALL) + ";";
Connection con =
java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(url);
specialRegisters=special-register-name=special-register-value,...specialregister-name=special-register-value
A list of special register settings for the JDBC connection. You can specify one
or more special register name and value pairs. Special register name and value
pairs must be delimited by commas (,). The last pair must end with a
semicolon (;). For example:
String url =
"jdbc:db2://sysmvs1.stl.ibm.com:5021/STLEC1" +
":user=dbadm;password=dbadm;" +
"specialRegisters=CURRENT_PATH=SYSIBM,CURRENT CLIENT_USERID=test" + ";";
Connection con =
java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(url);
For special registers that can be set through IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ Connection properties, if you set a special register value in a URL
string using specialRegisters, and you also set that value in a
18
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
java.util.Properties object using the following form of getConnection, the
special register is set to the value from the URL string.
getConnection(String url, java.util.Properties info);
You can specify only one value for each special register using the
specialRegisters parameter. For special registers that take multiple values, such
as CURRENT PATH, CURRENT PACKAGE PATH, CURRENT PACKAGESET,
you can specify multiple values for a special register by using the DataSource
interface and the DB2DataSource.setSpecialRegisters method.
|
|
|
|
globalSessionVariables=session-variable-name=session-variablevalue,...session-variable-name=session-variable-value
A list of session variable settings for the JDBC connection. You can specify one
or more session variable name and value pairs.
|
|
Session variable settings apply only to DB2 for z/OS Version 11 or later data
servers.
|
|
|
|
|
|
|
|
Session variable name and value pairs must be delimited by commas (,). The
last pair must end with a semicolon (;). For example:
|
|
String url =
"jdbc:db2://sysmvs1.stl.ibm.com:5021/STLEC1" +
":user=dbadm;password=dbadm;" +
"globalSessionVariables=SESSION.TEST=FAILED,SYSIBMADM.GET_ARCHIVE=Y" + ";";
Connection con =
java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(url);
queryAcceleration=value;
Changes the value of the CURRENT QUERY ACCELERATION special register.
|
Possible values are:
|
|
NONE
Specifies that no query acceleration is done.
|
|
|
|
|
ENABLE
Specifies that queries are accelerated only if DB2 determines that it is
advantageous to do so. If there is an accelerator failure while a query is
running, or the accelerator returns an error, DB2 returns a negative
SQLCODE to the application.
|
|
|
|
|
|
|
ENABLE WITH FAILBACK
Specifies that queries are accelerated only if DB2 determines that it is
advantageous to do so. If the accelerator returns an error during the
PREPARE or first OPEN for the query, DB2 executes the query without the
accelerator. If the accelerator returns an error during a FETCH or a
subsequent OPEN, DB2 returns the error to the user, and does not execute
the query.
|
|
|
|
|
|
ELIGIBLE
Specifies that queries are accelerated if they are eligible for acceleration.
DB2 does not use cost information to determine whether to accelerate the
queries. Queries that are not eligible for acceleration are executed by DB2.
If there is an accelerator failure while a query is running, or the accelerator
returns an error, DB2 returns a negative SQLCODE to the application.
|
|
|
|
|
ALL
Specifies that queries are accelerated if they are eligible for acceleration.
DB2 does not use cost information to determine whether to accelerate the
queries. Queries that are not eligible for acceleration are not executed by
DB2, and an SQL error is returned. If there is an accelerator failure while a

connectivity to DB2 for z/OS only.
jdbc:default:connection
Indicates that the URL is for a connection to the local subsystem
through a DB2 thread that is controlled by CICS, IMS, or the Java
stored procedure environment.
database
A name for the database server.
v database is a location name that is defined in the SYSIBM.LOCATIONS
catalog table.
All characters in the DB2 location name must be uppercase characters.
However, for a connection to a DB2 for z/OS server, the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ converts lowercase characters in the database
value to uppercase.

Connecting to a data source using the DataSource interface
If your applications need to be portable among data sources, you should use the
DataSource interface.
About this task
Using DriverManager to connect to a data source reduces portability because the
application must identify a specific JDBC driver class name and driver URL. The
driver class name and driver URL are specific to a JDBC vendor, driver
implementation, and data source.
When you connect to a data source using the DataSource interface, you use a
DataSource object.
The simplest way to use a DataSource object is to create and use the object in the
same application, as you do with the DriverManager interface. However, this
method does not provide portability.
The best way to use a DataSource object is for your system administrator to create
and manage it separately, using WebSphere Application Server or some other tool.
The program that creates and manages a DataSource object also uses the Java
Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) to assign a logical name to the DataSource
object. The JDBC application that uses the DataSource object can then refer to the
object by its logical name, and does not need any information about the underlying
data source. In addition, your system administrator can modify the data source
attributes, and you do not need to change your application program.
To learn more about using WebSphere to deploy DataSource objects, go to this
URL on the web:
http://www.ibm.com/software/webservers/appserv/
To learn about deploying DataSource objects yourself, see "Creating and deploying
DataSource objects".
You can use the DataSource interface and the DriverManager interface in the same
application, but for maximum portability, it is recommended that you use only the
DataSource interface to obtain connections.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
23
Procedure
To obtain a connection using a DataSource object that the system administrator has
already created and assigned a logical name to, follow these steps:
1. From your system administrator, obtain the logical name of the data source to
which you need to connect.
2. Create a Context object to use in the next step. The Context interface is part of
the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI), not JDBC.
3. In your application program, use JNDI to get the DataSource object that is
associated with the logical data source name.
4. Use the DataSource.getConnection method to obtain the connection.
You can use one of the following forms of the getConnection method:
getConnection();
getConnection(String user, String password);
Use the second form if you need to specify a user ID and password for the
connection that are different from the ones that were specified when the
DataSource was deployed.
Examples
Example of obtaining a connection using a DataSource object that was created by the
system administrator: In this example, the logical name of the data source that you
need to connect to is jdbc/sampledb. The numbers to the right of selected
statements correspond to the previously-described steps.

How to determine which type of IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ connectivity to use
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports two types of
connectivity: type 2 connectivity and type 4 connectivity.
For the DriverManager interface, you specify the type of connectivity through the
URL in the DriverManager.getConnection method. For the DataSource interface,
you specify the type of connectivity through the driverType property.
The following table summarizes the differences between type 2 connectivity and
type 4 connectivity:

The following points can help you determine which type of connectivity to use.
Use IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity under these
circumstances:
v Your JDBC or SQLJ application runs locally most of the time.
Local applications have better performance with type 2 connectivity.
v You are running a Java stored procedure.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
25
A stored procedure environment consists of two parts: a client program, from
which you call a stored procedure, and a server program, which is the stored
procedure. You can call a stored procedure in a JDBC or SQLJ program that uses
type 2 or type 4 connectivity, but you must run a Java stored procedure using
type 2 connectivity.
v Your application runs in the CICS environment or IMS environment.
Use IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity under these
circumstances:
v Your JDBC or SQLJ application runs remotely most of the time.
Remote applications have better performance with type 4 connectivity.
v You are using IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ connection
concentrator and Sysplex workload balancing support.
JDBC connection objects
When you connect to a data source by either connection method, you create a
Connection object, which represents the connection to the data source.
You use this Connection object to do the following things:
v Create Statement, PreparedStatement, and CallableStatement objects for
executing SQL statements. These are discussed in "Executing SQL statements in
JDBC applications".
v Gather information about the data source to which you are connected. This
process is discussed in "Learning about a data source using DatabaseMetaData
methods".
v Commit or roll back transactions. You can commit transactions manually or
automatically. These operations are discussed in "Commit or roll back a JDBC
transaction".
v Close the connection to the data source. This operation is discussed in
"Disconnecting from data sources in JDBC applications".

Creating and deploying DataSource objects
JDBC versions starting with version 2.0 provide the DataSource interface for
connecting to a data source. Using the DataSource interface is the preferred way to
connect to a data source.
About this task
Using the DataSource interface involves two parts:
v Creating and deploying DataSource objects. This is usually done by a system
administrator, using a tool such as WebSphere Application Server.
v Using the DataSource objects to create a connection. This is done in the
application program.
26
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
This topic contains information that you need if you create and deploy the
DataSource objects yourself.
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ provides the following DataSource
implementations:
v com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2SimpleDataSource, which does not support connection
pooling. You can use this implementation with IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ type 2 connectivity or IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity.
v com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2ConnectionPoolDataSource, which supports connection
pooling. You can use this implementation with IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ type 2 connectivity or IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity.
v com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2XADataSource, which supports connection pooling and
distributed transactions. The connection pooling is provided by WebSphere
Application Server or another application server. You can use this
implementation only with IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4
connectivity.
Procedure
To create and deploy a DataSource object, you need to perform these tasks:
1. Create an instance of the appropriate DataSource implementation.
2. Set the properties of the DataSource object.
3. Register the object with the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI)
naming service.

Java packages for JDBC support
Before you can invoke JDBC methods, you need to be able to access all or parts of
various Java packages that contain those methods.
You can do that either by importing the packages or specific classes, or by using
the fully-qualified class names. You might need the following packages or classes
for your JDBC program:
java.sql
Contains the core JDBC API.
javax.naming
Contains classes and interfaces for Java Naming and Directory Interface
(JNDI), which is often used for implementing a DataSource.
javax.sql
Contains methods for producing server-side applications using Java
com.ibm.db2.jcc
Contains the implementation of JDBC for the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ.

Learning about a data source using DatabaseMetaData methods
The DatabaseMetaData interface contains methods that retrieve information about a
data source. These methods are useful when you write generic applications that
can access various data sources.
About this task
In generic applications that can access various data sources, you need to test
whether a data source can handle various database operations before you execute
them. For example, you need to determine whether the driver at a data source is at
the JDBC 3.0 level before you invoke JDBC 3.0 methods against that driver.
DatabaseMetaData methods provide the following types of information:
v Features that the data source supports, such as the ANSI SQL level
v Specific information about the JDBC driver, such as the driver level
v Limits, such as the maximum number of columns that an index can have
v Whether the data source supports data definition statements (CREATE, ALTER,
DROP, GRANT, REVOKE)
v Lists of objects at the data source, such as tables, indexes, or procedures
v Whether the data source supports various JDBC functions, such as batch updates
or scrollable ResultSets
28
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
v A list of scalar functions that the driver supports
Procedure
To invoke DatabaseMetaData methods, you need to perform these basic steps:
1. Create a DatabaseMetaData object by invoking the getMetaData method on the
connection.
2. Invoke DatabaseMetaData methods to get information about the data source.
3. If the method returns a ResultSet:
a. In a loop, position the cursor using the next method, and retrieve data from
each column of the current row of the ResultSet object using getXXX
methods.
b. Invoke the close method to close the ResultSet object.
Examples
Example: The following code demonstrates how to use DatabaseMetaData methods
to determine the driver version, to get a list of the stored procedures that are
available at the data source, and to get a list of datetime functions that the driver
supports. The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the
previously-described steps.

rs = dbmtadta.getProcedures(null, null, "%");
// Get information for all procedures
while (rs.next()) {
// Position the cursor
3a

DatabaseMetaData methods for identifying the type of data
source
You can use the DatabaseMetaData.getDatabaseProductName and
DatabaseMetaData.getProductVersion methods to identify the type and level of the
database manager to which you are connected, and the operating system on which
the database manager is running.
DatabaseMetaData.getDatabaseProductName returns a string that identifies the
database manager and the operating system. The string has one of the following
formats:
database-product
database-product/operating-system
The following table shows examples of values that are returned by
DatabaseMetaData.getDatabaseProductName.

DatabaseMetaData.getDatabaseVersionName returns a string that contains the
database product indicator and the version number, release number, and
maintenance level of the data source.
The following table shows examples of values that are returned by
DatabaseMetaData.getDatabaseProductVersion.

Variables in JDBC applications
As in any other Java application, when you write JDBC applications, you declare
variables. In Java applications, those variables are known as Java identifiers.
Some of those identifiers have the same function as host variables in other
languages: they hold data that you pass to or retrieve from database tables.
Identifier empNo in the following code holds data that you retrieve from the
EMPNO table column, which has the CHAR data type.
String empNo;
// Execute a query and generate a ResultSet instance
rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT EMPNO FROM EMPLOYEE");
30
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
while (rs.next()) {
String empNo = rs.getString(1);
System.out.println("Employee number = " + empNo);
}
Your choice of Java data types can affect performance because DB2 picks better
access paths when the data types of your Java variables map closely to the DB2
data types.

Comments in a JDBC application
To document your JDBC program, you need to include comments. You can use
Java comments outside of JDBC methods and Java or SQL comments in SQL
statement strings.
You can include Java comments outside JDBC methods, wherever the Java
language permits them. Within an SQL statement string in a JDBC method call,
you can use comments in the following places:
v For connections to DB2 data servers or Informix data servers, comments can be:
–
Anywhere in the SQL statement string, and enclosed in /* and */ pairs. /*
and */ pairs can be nested.
– At the end of the SQL statement string, and preceded by two hyphens (--).
v For connections to Informix data servers only, comments can be enclosed in left
curly bracket ({) and right curly bracket (}) pairs.
Restriction: A comment that is enclosed in a { and } pair is not valid if either of
the following conditions is true:
– The SQL statement string is not a stored procedure call, the SQL statement
string is preceded and followed by comments that are enclosed in { and }
pairs, and the comment at the beginning of the SQL statement string begins
with the word call.
– The SQL statement string is a stored procedure call, and the comment {call} is
at the beginning of the escape syntax for the stored procedure call.
– The comment contains any of the following characters:
- Single quotation mark (')
- Double quotation mark (")
- Left curly bracket ({)
- Right curly bracket (})
- /*
– The comment can be interpreted as SQL escape syntax. Comments that begin
with the following characters can be interpreted as SQL escape syntax:
- d followed by a space
- t followed by a space
- ts followed by a space
- escape followed by a space
- oj followed by a space
- fn followed by a space
For example, the following SQL statement strings are not valid:
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
31
"{call comment at beginning} select * from systables {ending comment}"
"{{call} call mysp(?, ?)}"
JDBC interfaces for executing SQL
You execute SQL statements in a traditional SQL program to update data in tables,
retrieve data from the tables, or call stored procedures. To perform the same
functions in a JDBC program, you invoke methods.
Those methods are defined in the following interfaces:
v The Statement interface supports all SQL statement execution. The following
interfaces inherit methods from the Statement interface:
– The PreparedStatement interface supports any SQL statement containing
input parameter markers. Parameter markers represent input variables. The
PreparedStatement interface can also be used for SQL statements with no
parameter markers.
With the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, the PreparedStatement
interface can be used to call stored procedures that have input parameters
and no output parameters, and that return no result sets. However, the
preferred interface is CallableStatement.
– The CallableStatement interface supports the invocation of a stored
procedure.
The CallableStatement interface can be used to call stored procedures with
input parameters, output parameters, or input and output parameters, or no
parameters. With the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, you can
also use the Statement interface to call stored procedures, but those stored
procedures must have no parameters.
v The ResultSet interface provides access to the results that a query generates.
The ResultSet interface has the same purpose as the cursor that is used in SQL
applications in other languages.

Creating and modifying database objects using the
Statement.executeUpdate method
The Statement.executeUpdate is one of the JDBC methods that you can use to
update tables and call stored procedures.
About this task
You can use the Statement.executeUpdate method to do the following things:
v Execute data definition statements, such as CREATE, ALTER, DROP, GRANT,
REVOKE
32
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
v Execute INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, and MERGE statements that do not contain
parameter markers.
v With the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, execute the CALL
statement to call stored procedures that have no parameters and that return no
result sets.
Procedure
To

execute these SQL statements, you need to perform these steps:
Invoke the Connection.createStatement method to create a Statement object.
Invoke the Statement.executeUpdate method to perform the SQL operation.
Invoke the Statement.close method to close the Statement object.
Example
Suppose that you want to execute this SQL statement:
UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET PHONENO=’4657’ WHERE EMPNO=’000010’
The following code creates Statement object stmt, executes the UPDATE statement,
and returns the number of rows that were updated in numUpd. The numbers to the
right of selected statements correspond to the previously-described steps.
Connection con;
Statement stmt;
int numUpd;
...
stmt = con.createStatement();
// Create a Statement object 1
numUpd = stmt.executeUpdate(
"UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET PHONENO=’4657’ WHERE EMPNO=’000010’");
2
// Perform the update
stmt.close();
// Close Statement object

Updating data in tables using the
PreparedStatement.executeUpdate method
The Statement.executeUpdate method works if you update DB2 tables with
constant values. However, updates often need to involve passing values in
variables to DB2 tables. To do that, you use the PreparedStatement.executeUpdate
method.
About this task
With the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, you can also use
PreparedStatement.executeUpdate to call stored procedures that have input
parameters and no output parameters, and that return no result sets.
DB2 for z/OS does not support dynamic execution of the CALL statement. For
calls to stored procedures that are on DB2 for z/OS data sources, the parameters
can be parameter markers or literals, but not expressions. The following types of
literals are supported:
v Integer
v Double
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
33
v
v
v
v
Decimal
Character
Hexadecimal
Graphic
For calls to stored procedures that are on IBM Informix data sources, the
PreparedStatement object can be a CALL statement or an EXECUTE PROCEDURE
statement.
When you execute an SQL statement many times, you can get better performance
by creating the SQL statement as a PreparedStatement.
For example, the following UPDATE statement lets you update the employee table
for only one phone number and one employee number:
UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET PHONENO=’4657’ WHERE EMPNO=’000010’
Suppose that you want to generalize the operation to update the employee table
for any set of phone numbers and employee numbers. You need to replace the
constant phone number and employee number with variables:
UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET PHONENO=? WHERE EMPNO=?
Variables of this form are called parameter markers.
Procedure
To execute an SQL statement with parameter markers, you need to perform these
steps:
1. Invoke the Connection.prepareStatement method to create a PreparedStatement
object.
2. Invoke the PreparedStatement.setXXX methods to pass values to the input
variables.
This step assumes that you use standard parameter markers. Alternatively, if
you use named parameter markers, you useIBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ-only methods to pass values to the input parameters.
3. Invoke the PreparedStatement.executeUpdate method to update the table with
the variable values.
4. Invoke the PreparedStatement.close method to close the PreparedStatement
object when you have finished using that object.
Example
The following code performs the previous steps to update the phone number to
'4657' for the employee with employee number '000010'. The numbers to the right
of selected statements correspond to the previously-described steps.
34

// Assign first value to first parameter
pstmt.setString(2,"000010");
// Assign first value to second parameter
numUpd = pstmt.executeUpdate();
// Perform first update
pstmt.setString(1,"4658");
// Assign second value to first parameter
pstmt.setString(2,"000020");

Figure 9. Using PreparedStatement.executeUpdate for an SQL statement with parameter
markers
You can also use the PreparedStatement.executeUpdate method for statements that
have no parameter markers. The steps for executing a PreparedStatement object
with no parameter markers are similar to executing a PreparedStatement object
with parameter markers, except you skip step 2 on page 34. The following example
demonstrates these steps.
Connection con;
PreparedStatement pstmt;
int numUpd;
...
pstmt = con.prepareStatement(
"UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET PHONENO=’4657’ WHERE EMPNO=’000010’");
// Create a PreparedStatement object 1

// Perform the update

// Close the PreparedStatement object 4

JDBC executeUpdate methods against a DB2 for z/OS server
The JDBC standard states that the executeUpdate method returns a row count or 0.
However, if the executeUpdate method is executed against a DB2 for z/OS server,
it can return a value of -1.
For executeUpdate statements against a DB2 for z/OS server, the value that is
returned depends on the type of SQL statement that is being executed:
v For an SQL statement that can have an update count, such as an INSERT,
UPDATE, DELETE, or MERGE statement, the returned value is the number of
affected rows. It can be:
– A positive number, if a positive number of rows are affected by the operation,
and the operation is not a mass delete on a segmented table space.
– 0, if no rows are affected by the operation.
– -1, if the operation is a mass delete on a segmented table space.
v For an SQL CALL statement, a value of -1 is returned, because the data source
cannot determine the number of affected rows. Calls to getUpdateCount or
getMoreResults for a CALL statement also return -1.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
35
v For any other SQL statement, a value of -1 is returned.

Making batch updates in JDBC applications
With batch updates, instead of updating rows of a table one at a time, you can
direct JDBC to execute a group of updates at the same time. Statements that can be
included in the same batch of updates are known as batchable statements.
About this task
If a statement has input parameters or host expressions, you can include that
statement only in a batch that has other instances of the same statement. This type
of batch is known as a homogeneous batch. If a statement has no input parameters,
you can include that statement in a batch only if the other statements in the batch
have no input parameters or host expressions. This type of batch is known as a
heterogeneous batch. Two statements that can be included in the same batch are
known as batch compatible.
Use the following Statement methods for creating, executing, and removing a
batch of SQL updates:
v addBatch
v executeBatch
v clearBatch
Use the following PreparedStatement and CallableStatement method for creating a
batch of parameters so that a single statement can be executed multiple times in a
batch, with a different set of parameters for each execution.
v addBatch
Restrictions on executing statements in a batch:
v If you try to execute a SELECT statement in a batch, a BatchUpdateException is
thrown.
v A CallableStatement object that you execute in a batch can contain output
parameters. However, you cannot retrieve the values of the output parameters. If
you try to do so, a BatchUpdateException is thrown.
v You cannot retrieve ResultSet objects from a CallableStatement object that you
execute in a batch. A BatchUpdateException is not thrown, but the getResultSet
method invocation returns a null value.
Procedure
To make batch updates, follow one of the following sets of steps.
v To make batch updates using several statements with no input parameters,
follow these basic steps:
1. For each SQL statement that you want to execute in the batch, invoke the
addBatch method.
2. Invoke the executeBatch method to execute the batch of statements.
3. Check for errors. If no errors occurred:
a. Get the number of rows that were affect by each SQL statement from the
array that the executeBatch invocation returns. This number does not
include rows that were affected by triggers or by referential integrity
enforcement.
36
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
b. If AutoCommit is disabled for the Connection object, invoke the commit
method to commit the changes.
If AutoCommit is enabled for the Connection object, the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ adds a commit method at the end of the batch.
v To make batch updates using a single statement with several sets of input
parameters, follow these basic steps:
1. If the batched statement is a searched UDPATE, searched DELETE, or
MERGE statement, set the autocommit mode for the connection to false.
2. Invoke the prepareStatement method to create a PreparedStatement object.
3. For each set of input parameter values:
a. Execute setXXX methods to assign values to the input parameters.
b. Invoke the addBatch method to add the set of input parameters to the
batch.
4. Invoke the executeBatch method to execute the statements with all sets of
parameters.
5. If no errors occurred:
a. Get the number of rows that were updated by each execution of the SQL
statement from the array that the executeBatch invocation returns. The
number of affected rows does not include rows that were affected by
triggers or by referential integrity enforcement.
If the following conditions are true, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ returns Statement.SUCCESS_NO_INFO (-2), instead of the number
of rows that were affected by each SQL statement:
– The application is connected to a subsystem that is in DB2 for z/OS
Version 8 new-function mode, or later.
– The application is using Version 3.1 or later of the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ.
– The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses multi-row
INSERT operations to execute batch updates.
This occurs because with multi-row INSERT, the database server executes
the entire batch as a single operation, so it does not return results for
individual SQL statements.
b. If AutoCommit is disabled for the Connection object, invoke the commit
method to commit the changes.
If AutoCommit is enabled for the Connection object, the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ adds a commit method at the end of the batch.
c. If the PreparedStatement object returns automatically generated keys, call
DB2PreparedStatement.getDBGeneratedKeys to retrieve an array of
ResultSet objects that contains the automatically generated keys.
Check the length of the returned array. If the length of the returned array
is 0, an error occurred during retrieval of the automatically generated
keys.
6. If errors occurred, process the BatchUpdateException.
Example
In the following code fragment, two sets of parameters are batched. An UPDATE
statement that takes two input parameters is then executed twice, once with each
set of parameters. The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to
the previously-described steps.

Learning about parameters in a PreparedStatement using
ParameterMetaData methods
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ includes support for the
ParameterMetaData interface. The ParameterMetaData interface contains methods
that retrieve information about the parameter markers in a PreparedStatement
object.
About this task
ParameterMetaData methods provide the following types of information:
v The data types of parameters, including the precision and scale of decimal
parameters.
v The parameters' database-specific type names. For parameters that correspond to
table columns that are defined with distinct types, these names are the distinct
type names.
v Whether parameters are nullable.
v Whether parameters are input or output parameters.
v Whether the values of a numeric parameter can be signed.
v The fully-qualified Java class name that PreparedStatement.setObject uses
when it sets a parameter value.
Procedure
To invoke ParameterMetaData methods, you need to perform these basic steps:
1. Invoke the Connection.prepareStatement method to create a PreparedStatement
object.
2. Invoke the PreparedStatement.getParameterMetaData method to retrieve a
ParameterMetaData object.
3. Invoke ParameterMetaData.getParameterCount to determine the number of
parameters in the PreparedStatement.
4. Invoke ParameterMetaData methods on individual parameters.
Example
The following code demonstrates how to use ParameterMetaData methods to
determine the number and data types of parameters in an SQL UPDATE statement.
The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the
previously-described steps.

Data retrieval in JDBC applications
In JDBC applications, you retrieve data using ResultSet objects. A ResultSet
represents the result set of a query.
Retrieving data from tables using the Statement.executeQuery
method
To retrieve data from a table using a SELECT statement with no parameter
markers, you can use the Statement.executeQuery method.
About this task
This method returns a result table in a ResultSet object. After you obtain the result
table, you need to use ResultSet methods to move through the result table and
obtain the individual column values from each row.
With the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, you can also use the
Statement.executeQuery method to retrieve a result set from a stored procedure
call, if that stored procedure returns only one result set. If the stored procedure
returns multiple result sets, you need to use the Statement.execute method.
This topic discusses the simplest kind of ResultSet, which is a read-only ResultSet
in which you can only move forward, one row at a time. The IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ also supports updatable and scrollable ResultSets.
Procedure
To retrieve rows from a table using a SELECT statement with no parameter
markers, you need to perform these steps:
1. Invoke the Connection.createStatement method to create a Statement object.
2. Invoke the Statement.executeQuery method to obtain the result table from the
SELECT statement in a ResultSet object.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
41
3. In a loop, position the cursor using the next method, and retrieve data from
each column of the current row of the ResultSet object using getXXX methods.
XXX represents a data type.
4. Invoke the ResultSet.close method to close the ResultSet object.
5. Invoke the Statement.close method to close the Statement object when you
have finished using that object.
Example
The following code demonstrates how to retrieve all rows from the employee table.
The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the
previously-described steps.
String empNo;
Connection con;

Retrieving data from tables using the
PreparedStatement.executeQuery method
To retrieve data from a table using a SELECT statement with parameter markers,
you use the PreparedStatement.executeQuery method.
About this task
This method returns a result table in a ResultSet object. After you obtain the result
table, you need to use ResultSet methods to move through the result table and
obtain the individual column values from each row.
With the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, you can also use the
PreparedStatement.executeQuery method to retrieve a result set from a stored
procedure call, if that stored procedure returns only one result set and has only
input parameters. If the stored procedure returns multiple result sets, you need to
use the PreparedStatement.execute method.
You can also use the PreparedStatement.executeQuery method for statements that
have no parameter markers. When you execute a query many times, you can get
better performance by creating the SQL statement as a PreparedStatement.
42
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Procedure
To retrieve rows from a table using a SELECT statement with parameter markers,
you need to perform these steps:
1. Invoke the Connection.prepareStatement method to create a PreparedStatement
object.
2. Invoke PreparedStatement.setXXX methods to pass values to the input
parameters.
3. Invoke the PreparedStatement.executeQuery method to obtain the result table
from the SELECT statement in a ResultSet object.
Restriction: For a PreparedStatement that contains an IN predicate, the
expression that is the argument of the IN predicate cannot have more than
32767 parameters if the target data server is a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and
Windows system. Otherwise, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
throws an SQLException with error code -4499.
4. In a loop, position the cursor using the ResultSet.next method, and retrieve
data from each column of the current row of the ResultSet object using getXXX
methods.
5. Invoke the ResultSet.close method to close the ResultSet object.
6. Invoke the PreparedStatement.close method to close the PreparedStatement
object when you have finished using that object.
Example
The following code demonstrates how to retrieve rows from the employee table for
a specific employee. The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to
the previously-described steps.
String empnum, phonenum;
Connection con;
PreparedStatement pstmt;
ResultSet rs;
...
pstmt = con.prepareStatement(
"SELECT EMPNO, PHONENO FROM EMPLOYEE WHERE EMPNO=?");
// Create a PreparedStatement object
pstmt.setString(1,"000010");
// Assign value to input parameter

Making batch queries in JDBC applications
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ provides a IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ-only DB2PreparedStatement interface that lets you
perform batch queries on a homogeneous batch.
Procedure
To make batch queries using a single statement with several sets of input
parameters, follow these basic steps:
1. Invoke the prepareStatement method to create a PreparedStatement object for
the SQL statement with input parameters.
2. For each set of input parameter values:
a. Execute PreparedStatement.setXXX methods to assign values to the input
parameters.
b. Invoke the PreparedStatement.addBatch method to add the set of input
parameters to the batch.
3. Cast the PreparedStatement object to a DB2PreparedStatement object, and
invoke the DB2PreparedStatement.executeDB2QueryBatch method to execute the
statement with all sets of parameters.
4. In a loop, retrieve the ResultSet objects:
a. Retrieve each ResultSet object.
b. Retrieve all the rows from each ResultSet object.
Example
In the following code fragment, two sets of parameters are batched. A SELECT
statement that takes one input parameter is then executed twice, once with each
parameter value. The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the
previously described steps.
java.sql.Connection con = java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(url, properties);
java.sql.Statement s = con.createStatement();
// Clean up from previous executions
try {
s.executeUpdate ("drop table TestQBatch");
}
catch (Exception e) {

Learning about a ResultSet using ResultSetMetaData methods
You cannot always know the number of columns and data types of the columns in
a table or result set. This is true especially when you are retrieving data from a
remote data source.
About this task
When you write programs that retrieve unknown ResultSets, you need to use
ResultSetMetaData methods to determine the characteristics of the ResultSets
before you can retrieve data from them.
ResultSetMetaData methods provide the following types of information:
v The number of columns in a ResultSet
v The qualifier for the underlying table of the ResultSet
v Information about a column, such as the data type, length, precision, scale, and
nullability
v Whether a column is read-only
Procedure
After you invoke the executeQuery method to generate a ResultSet for a query on
a table, follow these basic steps to determine the contents of the ResultSet:
1. Invoke the getMetaData method on the ResultSet object to create a
ResultSetMetaData object.
2. Invoke the getColumnCount method to determine how many columns are in the
ResultSet.
3. For each column in the ResultSet, execute ResultSetMetaData methods to
determine column characteristics.
The results of ResultSetMetaData.getColumnName call reflects the column name
information that is stored in the DB2 catalog for that data source.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
45
Example
The following code demonstrates how to determine the data types of all the
columns in the employee table. The numbers to the right of selected statements
correspond to the previously-described steps.
String s;
Connection con;
Statement stmt;
ResultSet rs;
ResultSetMetaData rsmtadta;
int colCount
int mtadtaint;
int i;
String colName;
String colType;
...
stmt = con.createStatement();
// Create a Statement object
rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM EMPLOYEE");
// Get the ResultSet from the query
rsmtadta = rs.getMetaData();
// Create a ResultSetMetaData object 1
colCount = rsmtadta.getColumnCount();
2
// Find number of columns in EMP
for (i=1; i<= colCount; i++) {
3
colName = rsmtadta.getColumnName();
// Get column name
colType = rsmtadta.getColumnTypeName();
// Get column data type
System.out.println("Column = " + colName +
" is data type " + colType);
// Print the column value
}

Characteristics of a JDBC ResultSet under the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ provides support for scrollable,
updatable, and holdable cursors.
In addition to moving forward, one row at a time, through a ResultSet, you might
want to do the following things:
v Move backward or go directly to a specific row
v Update, delete, or insert rows in a ResultSet
v Leave the ResultSet open after a COMMIT
The following terms describe characteristics of a ResultSet:
scrollability
Whether the cursor for the ResultSet can move forward only, or forward one
or more rows, backward one or more rows, or to a specific row.
If a cursor for a ResultSet is scrollable, it also has a sensitivity attribute, which
describes whether the cursor is sensitive to changes to the underlying table.
46
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
updatability
Whether the cursor can be used to update or delete rows. This characteristic
does not apply to a ResultSet that is returned from a stored procedure,
because a stored procedure ResultSet cannot be updated.
holdability
Whether the cursor stays open after a COMMIT.
You set the updatability, scrollability, and holdability characteristics of a ResultSet
through parameters in the Connection.prepareStatement or
Connection.createStatement methods. The ResultSet settings map to attributes of
a cursor in the database. The following table lists the JDBC scrollability,
updatability, and holdability settings, and the corresponding cursor attributes.

Important: Like static scrollable cursors in any other language, JDBC static
scrollable ResultSet objects use declared temporary tables for their internal
processing. This means that before you can execute any applications that contain
JDBC static scrollable ResultSet objects, your database administrator needs to
create a temporary database and temporary table spaces for those declared
temporary tables.
If a JDBC ResultSet is static, the size of the result table and the order of the rows
in the result table do not change after the cursor is opened. This means that if you
insert rows into the underlying table, the result table for a static ResultSet does
not change. If you delete a row of a result table, a delete hole occurs. You cannot
update or delete a delete hole.
Related concepts:
Temporary table space storage requirements (DB2 Installation and Migration)
Specifying updatability, scrollability, and holdability for ResultSets in JDBC
applications:
You use special parameters in the Connection.prepareStatement or
Connection.createStatement methods to specify the updatability, scrollability, and
holdability of a ResultSet.
Before you begin
If you plan to update ResultSet objects, ensure that the enableExtendedDescribe
property is not set, or is set to DB2BaseDataSource.YES (2). Updates of ResultSet
objects do not work correctly unless extended describe capability is enabled.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
47
About this task
By default, ResultSet objects are not scrollable and not updatable. The default
holdability depends on the data source, and can be determined from the
DatabaseMetaData.getResultSetHoldability method. These steps change the
scrollability, updatability, and holdability attributes for a ResultSet.
Procedure
1. If the SELECT statement that defines the ResultSet has no input parameters,
invoke the createStatement method to create a Statement object. Otherwise,
invoke the prepareStatement method to create a PreparedStatement object. You
need to specify forms of the createStatement or prepareStatement methods
that include the resultSetType, resultSetConcurrency, or resultSetHoldability
parameters.
The form of the createStatement method that supports scrollability and
updatability is:
createStatement(int resultSetType, int resultSetConcurrency);
The form of the createStatement method that supports scrollability,
updatability, and holdability is:
createStatement(int resultSetType, int resultSetConcurrency,
int resultSetHoldability);
The form of the prepareStatement method that supports scrollability and
updatability is:
prepareStatement(String sql, int resultSetType,
int resultSetConcurrency);
The form of the prepareStatement method that supports scrollability,
updatability, and holdability is:
prepareStatement(String sql, int resultSetType,
int resultSetConcurrency, int resultSetHoldability);
Important: In a prepareStatement method invocation in which the first
parameter is a CALL statement, you cannot specify the scrollability,
updatability, or holdability of result sets that are returned from a stored
procedure. Those characteristics are determined by the stored procedure code,
when it declares the cursors for the result sets that are returned. If you use the
prepareStatement method to prepare a CALL statement, and the
prepareStatement call includes the scrollability, updatability, or holdability
parameters, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not use those
parameter values. A prepareStatement method with scrollability, updatability,
or holdability parameters applies only to preparation of SQL statements other
than the CALL statement.
The following table contains a list of valid values for resultSetType and
resultSetConcurrency.

Note:
1. This value does not apply to connections to IBM Informix.
resultSetHoldability has two possible values: HOLD_CURSORS_OVER_COMMIT and
CLOSE_CURSORS_AT_COMMIT. Either of these values can be specified with any
valid combination of resultSetConcurrency and resultSetHoldability. The value that
you set overrides the default holdability for the connection.
Restriction: If the ResultSet is scrollable, and the ResultSet is used to select
columns from a table on a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows server, the
SELECT list of the SELECT statement that defines the ResultSet cannot include
columns with the following data types:
v LONG VARCHAR
v LONG VARGRAPHIC
v BLOB
v CLOB
v XML
v A distinct type that is based on any of the previous data types in this list
v A structured type
2. If the SELECT statement has input parameters, invoke setXXX methods to pass
values to the input parameters.
3. Invoke the executeQuery method to obtain the result table from the SELECT
statement in a ResultSet object.
4. For each row that you want to access:
a. Position the cursor using one of the methods that are listed in the following
table.
Restriction: If resultSetType is TYPE_FORWARD_ONLY, only ResultSet.next is
valid.

Table 13. ResultSet methods for positioning a scrollable cursor (continued)
Method
Positions the cursor
Notes:
1. This method does not apply to connections to IBM Informix.
2. If the cursor is before the first row of the ResultSet, this method positions the cursor on
the first row.
3. If the cursor is after the last row of the ResultSet, this method positions the cursor on
the last row.
4. If the absolute value of n is greater than the number of rows in the result set, this
method positions the cursor after the last row if n is positive, or before the first row if n
is negative.
5. The cursor must be on a valid row of the ResultSet before you can use this method. If
the cursor is before the first row or after the last row, the method throws an
SQLException.
6. Suppose that m is the number of rows in the ResultSet and x is the current row number
in the ResultSet. If n>0 and x+n>m, the driver positions the cursor after the last row. If
n<0 and x+n<1, the driver positions the cursor before the first row.
b. If you need to know the current cursor position, use the getRow, isFirst,
isLast, isBeforeFirst, or isAfterLast method to obtain this information.
c. If you specified a resultSetType value of TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE in step 1 on
page 48, and you need to see the latest values of the current row, invoke the
refreshRow method.
Recommendation: Because refreshing the rows of a ResultSet can have a
detrimental effect on the performance of your applications, you should
invoke refreshRow only when you need to see the latest data.
d. Perform one or more of the following operations:
v To retrieve data from each column of the current row of the ResultSet
object, use getXXX methods.
v To update the current row from the underlying table, use updateXXX
methods to assign column values to the current row of the ResultSet.
Then use updateRow to update the corresponding row of the underlying
table. If you decide that you do not want to update the underlying table,
invoke the cancelRowUpdates method instead of the updateRow method.
The resultSetConcurrency value for the ResultSet must be
CONCUR_UPDATABLE for you to use these methods.
v To delete the current row from the underlying table, use the deleteRow
method. Invoking deleteRow causes the driver to replace the current row
of the ResultSet with a hole.
The resultSetConcurrency value for the ResultSet must be
CONCUR_UPDATABLE for you to use this method.
5. Invoke the close method to close the ResultSet object.
6. Invoke the close method to close the Statement or PreparedStatement object.

The following code demonstrates how to retrieve all rows from the employee table
in reverse order, and update the phone number for employee number "000010".
The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the
previously-described steps.

Multi-row SQL operations in JDBC applications:
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports multi-row INSERT,
UPDATE, and FETCH for connections to data sources that support these
operations.
Multi-row INSERT
In JDBC applications, when you execute INSERT or MERGE statements that use
parameter markers in a batch, if the data server supports multi-row INSERT, the
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ can transform the batch INSERT or
MERGE operations into multi-row INSERT statements. Multi-row INSERT
operations can provide better performance in the following ways:
v For local applications, multi-row INSERTs result in fewer accesses of the data
server.
v For distributed applications, multi-row INSERTs result in fewer network
operations.
You cannot execute a multi-row INSERT operation by including a multi-row
INSERT statement in a statement string in your JDBC application.
Multi-row INSERT is used by default. You can use the Connection or DataSource
property enableMultiRowInsertSupport to control whether multi-row INSERT is
used. Multi-row INSERT cannot be used for INSERT FROM SELECT statements
that are executed in a batch.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
51
Multi-row FETCH
Multi-row FETCH can provide better performance than retrieving one row with
each FETCH statement. For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity on DB2 for z/OS, multi-row FETCH can be used for forward-only
cursors and scrollable cursors. For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type
4 connectivity, multi-row FETCH can be used only for scrollable cursors.
When you retrieve data in your applications, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ determines whether to use multi-row FETCH, depending on several
factors:
v The setting of the enableRowsetSupport property
v The setting of the useRowsetCursor property, for connections to DB2 for z/OS
v The type of IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ connectivity that is
being used
v The version of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity to DB2 for
z/OS, one of the following sets of conditions must be true for multi-row FETCH to
be used.
v First set of conditions:
– The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version is 3.51 or later.
– The enableRowsetSupport property value is
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1), or the enableRowsetSupport
property value is com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0) and the
useRowsetCursor property value is true.
– The FETCH operation uses a scrollable cursor.
For forward-only cursors, fetching of multiple rows might occur through
DRDA block FETCH. However, this behavior does not utilize the data
source's multi-row FETCH capability.
v Second set of conditions:
– The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version is 3.1.
– The useRowsetCursor property value is
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1).
– The FETCH operation uses a scrollable cursor.
For forward-only cursors, fetching of multiple rows might occur through
DRDA block FETCH. However, this behavior does not utilize the data
source's multi-row FETCH capability.
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to DB2 for
z/OS the following conditions must be true for multi-row FETCH to be used.
v The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version is 3.51 or later.
v The enableRowsetSupport property value is
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1).
v The FETCH operation uses a scrollable cursor or a forward-only cursor.
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for
z/OS, you can control the maximum size of a rowset for each statement by setting
the maxRowsetSize property.
52
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Multi-row positioned UPDATE or DELETE
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports a technique for
performing positioned update or delete operations that follows the JDBC 1
standard. That technique involves using the ResultSet.getCursorName method to
obtain the name of the cursor for the ResultSet, and defining a positioned
UPDATE or positioned DELETE statement of the following form:
UPDATE table SET col1=value1,...coln=valueN WHERE CURRENT OF cursorname
DELETE FROM table WHERE CURRENT OF cursorname
Multi-row UPDATE or DELETE when useRowsetCursor is set to true: If you use the
JDBC 1 technique to update or delete data on a database server that supports
multi-row FETCH, and multi-row FETCH is enabled through the useRowsetCursor
property, the positioned UPDATE or DELETE statement might update or delete
multiple rows, when you expect it to update or delete a single row. To avoid
unexpected updates or deletes, you can take one of the following actions:
v Use an updatable ResultSet to retrieve and update one row at a time, as shown
in the previous example.
v Set useRowsetCursor to false.
Multi-row UPDATE or DELETE when enableRowsetSupport is set to
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1): The JDBC 1 technique for updating or
deleting data is incompatible with multi-row FETCH that is enabled through the
enableRowsetSupport property.
Recommendation: If your applications use the JDBC 1 technique, update them to
use the JDBC 2.0 ResultSet.updateRow or ResultSet.deleteRow methods for
positioned update or delete activity.
Testing whether the current row of a ResultSet is a delete hole or update hole in
a JDBC application:
If a ResultSet has the TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE attribute, and the underlying
cursor is SENSITIVE STATIC, you need to test for delete holes or update holes
before you attempt to retrieve rows of the ResultSet.
About this task
After a SENSITIVE STATIC ResultSet is opened, it does not change size. This
means that deleted rows are replaced by placeholders, which are also called holes.
If updated rows no longer fit the criteria for the ResultSet, those rows also become
holes. You cannot retrieve rows that are holes.
Procedure
To test whether the current row in a ResultSet is a delete hole or update hole,
follow these steps:
1. Call the DatabaseMetaData.deletesAreDetected or
DatabaseMetaData.updatesAreDetected method with the
TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE argument to determine whether the data source
creates holes for a TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE ResultSet.
2. If DatabaseMetaData.deletesAreDetected or
DatabaseMetaData.updatesAreDetected returns true, which means that the data
source can create holes, call the ResultSet.rowDeleted or ResultSet.rowUpdated
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
53
method to determine whether the current row is a delete or update hole. If the
method returns true, the current row is a hole.
Example
The following code tests whether the current row is a delete hole.
Statement stmt = con.createStatement(ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE,
ResultSet.CONCUR_UPDATABLE);
// Create a Statement object
// for a scrollable, updatable
// ResultSet
ResultSet rs =
stmt.executeQuery("SELECT EMPNO FROM EMPLOYEE FOR UPDATE OF PHONENO");
// Create the ResultSet
DatabaseMetaData dbmd = con.getMetaData();
// Create the DatabaseMetaData object
boolean dbSeesDeletes =
dbmd.deletesAreDetected(ResultSet.TYPESCROLL_SENSITIVE);
// Can the database see delete holes?
rs.afterLast();
// Position the cursor at the end of
// the ResultSet
while (rs.previous()) {
// Position the cursor backward
if (dbSeesDeletes) {
// If delete holes can be detected
if (!(rs.rowDeleted()))
// If this row is not a delete hole
{
s = rs.getString("EMPNO");
// Retrieve the employee number
System.out.println("Employee number = " + s);
// Print the column value
}
}
}
rs.close();
// Close the ResultSet
stmt.close();
// Close the Statement
Inserting a row into a ResultSet in a JDBC application:
If a ResultSet has a resultSetConcurrency attribute of CONCUR_UPDATABLE, you
can insert rows into the ResultSet.
Before you begin
Ensure that the enableExtendedDescribe property is not set, or is set to
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (2). Insertion of a row into a ResultSet does not work
unless extended describe capability is enabled.
Procedure
1. Perform the following steps for each row that you want to insert.
a. Call the ResultSet.moveToInsertRow method to create the row that you
want to insert. The row is created in a buffer outside the ResultSet.
If an insert buffer already exists, all old values are cleared from the buffer.
b. Call ResultSet.updateXXX methods to assign values to the row that you
want to insert.
You need to assign a value to at least one column in the ResultSet. If you
do not do so, an SQLException is thrown when the row is inserted into the
ResultSet.
If you do not assign a value to a column of the ResultSet, when the
underlying table is updated, the data source inserts the default value for the
associated table column.
54
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
If you assign a null value to a column that is defined as NOT NULL, the
JDBC driver throws and SQLException.
c. Call ResultSet.insertRow to insert the row into the ResultSet.
After you call ResultSet.insertRow, all values are always cleared from the
insert buffer, even if ResultSet.insertRow fails.
2. Reposition the cursor within the ResultSet.
To move the cursor from the insert row to the ResultSet, you can invoke any
of the methods that position the cursor at a specific row, such as
ResultSet.first, ResultSet.absolute, or ResultSet.relative. Alternatively,
you can call ResultSet.moveToCurrentRow to move the cursor to the row in the
ResultSet that was the current row before the insert operation occurred.
After you call ResultSet.moveToCurrentRow, all values are cleared from the
insert buffer.
Example
The following code illustrates inserting a row into a ResultSet that consists of all
rows in the sample DEPARTMENT table. After the row is inserted, the code places
the cursor where it was located in the ResultSet before the insert operation. The
numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously-described
steps.
stmt = con.createStatement(ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE,
ResultSet.CONCUR_UPDATABLE);
ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM DEPARTMENT");
rs.moveToInsertRow();
1a
rs.updateString("DEPT_NO", "M13");
1b
rs.updateString("DEPTNAME", "TECHNICAL SUPPORT");
rs.updateString("MGRNO", "000010");
rs.updateString("ADMRDEPT", "A00");
rs.insertRow();
1c
rs.moveToCurrentRow();
2
Testing whether the current row was inserted into a ResultSet in a JDBC
application:
If a ResultSet is dynamic, you can insert rows into it. After you insert rows into a
ResultSet you might need to know which rows were inserted.
Procedure
To test whether the current row in a ResultSet was inserted, follow these steps:
1. Call the DatabaseMetaData.ownInsertsAreVisible and
DatabaseMetaData.othersInsertsAreVisible methods to determine whether
inserts can be visible to the given type of ResultSet.
2. If inserts can be visible to the ResultSet, call the
DatabaseMetaData.insertsAreDetected method to determine whether the given
type of ResultSet can detect inserts.
3. If the ResultSet can detect inserts, call the ResultSet.rowInserted method to
determine whether the current row was inserted.
Retrieving rows as byte data in JDBC applications
You can use the DB2ResultSet.getDBRowDataAsBytes method to retrieve an entire
row from a table as raw bytes, and retrieve the column data from the returned
rows.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
55
Procedure
1. Create a Statement or PreparedStatement object.
2. Invoke the Statement.executeQuery method or
PreparedStatement.executeQuery method to obtain a ResultSet object.
3. Cast the ResultSet object as a DB2ResultSet object.
4. Repeat the following steps until there are no rows left to retrieve:
a. Move the cursor to the next row.
b. Call the DB2ResultSet.getDBRowDataAsBytes method to retrieve an Object
array that contains the row data.
c. Cast the first element of the Object array as a byte array.
This byte array contains the data for each column in the row. See the
description of getDBRowDataAsBytes in “DB2ResultSet interface” on page
450 for the data format.
d. Cast the second element of the Object array as an int array.
Each integer in this array contains the offset into the row data byte array of
the beginning of the data for a column.
e. Call the DB2ResultSet.getDBRowDescriptor method to retrieve an int array

This array contains descriptive information about each column in the row.
See the description of getDBRowDescriptor in “DB2ResultSet interface” on
page 450 for the data format.

Calling stored procedures in JDBC applications
To call stored procedures, you invoke methods in the CallableStatement or
PreparedStatement class.
Procedure
The basic steps for calling a stored procedures using standard CallableStatement
methods are:
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
57
1. Invoke the Connection.prepareCall method with the CALL statement as its
argument to create a CallableStatement object.
You can represent parameters with standard parameter markers (?) or named
parameter markers. You cannot mix named parameter markers with standard
parameter markers in the same CALL statement.
Restriction: The parameter types that are permitted depend on whether the
data source supports dynamic execution of the CALL statement. DB2 for z/OS
does not support dynamic execution of the CALL statement. For a call to a
stored procedure that is on a DB2 for z/OS database server, the parameters can
be parameter markers or literals, but not expressions. Even if all parameters are
literals, you cannot use Statement methods to execute CALL statements. You
must use PreparedStatement methods or CallableStatement methods. The
following table lists the types of literals that are supported, and the JDBC types
to which they map.
Table 14. Supported literal types in parameters in DB2 for z/OS stored procedure calls
Literal parameter type
JDBC type
Examples
Integer
java.sql.Types.INTEGER
-122, 40022, +27
Floating-point decimal
java.sql.Types.DOUBLE
23E12, 40022E-4, +2723E+15, 1E+23, 0E0
Fixed-point decimal
java.sql.Types.DECIMAL
-23.12, 40022.4295, 0.0, +2723.23, 10000000000
Character
java.sql.Types.VARCHAR
'Grantham Lutz', 'O''Conner', 'ABcde?z?'
Hexadecimal
java.sql.Types.VARBINARY
X'C1C30427', X'00CF18E0'
Unicode string
java.sql.Types.VARCHAR
UX'0041', UX'0054006500730074'
Important: In a prepareCall method invocation, you cannot specify the
scrollability, updatability, or holdability of result sets that are returned from a
stored procedure. Those characteristics are determined by the stored procedure
code, when it declares the cursors for the result sets that are returned. If you
specify any of the forms of prepareCall that include scrollability, updatability,
or holdability parameters, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does
not use those parameter values. A prepareCall method with scrollability,
updatability, or holdability parameters applies only to preparation of SQL
statements other than the CALL statement.
2. Invoke the CallableStatement.setXXX methods to pass values to the input
parameters (parameters that are defined as IN or INOUT in the CREATE
PROCEDURE statement).
This step assumes that you use standard parameter markers or named
parameters. Alternatively, if you use named parameter markers, you use IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ-only methods to pass values to the
input parameters.
Restriction: If the data source does not support dynamic execution of the
CALL statement, you must specify the data types for CALL statement input
parameters exactly as they are specified in the stored procedure definition.
Restriction: Invoking CallableStatement.setXXX methods to pass values to the
OUT parameters is not supported. There is no need to set values for the OUT
parameters of a stored procedure because the stored procedure does not use
those values.
58
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
3. Invoke the CallableStatement.registerOutParameter method to register
parameters that are defined as OUT in the CREATE PROCEDURE statement
with specific data types.
This step assumes that you use standard parameter markers. Alternatively, if
you use named parameter markers, you use IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ-only methods to register OUT parameters with specific data types.
Restriction: If the data source does not support dynamic execution of the
CALL statement, you must specify the data types for CALL statement OUT, IN,
or INOUT parameters exactly as they are specified in the stored procedure
definition.
4. Invoke one of the following methods to call the stored procedure:
CallableStatement.executeUpdate
Invoke this method if the stored procedure does not return result sets.
CallableStatement.executeQuery
Invoke this method if the stored procedure returns one result set.
You can invoke CallableStatement.executeQuery for a stored procedure
that returns no result sets if you set property
allowNullResultSetForExecuteQuery to DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1). In that
case, CallableStatement.executeQuery returns null. This behavior does not
conform to the JDBC standard.
CallableStatement.execute
Invoke this method if the stored procedure returns multiple result sets, or
an unknown number of result sets.
Restriction: IBM Informix data sources do not support multiple result sets.
5. If the stored procedure returns multiple result sets, retrieve the result sets.
Restriction: IBM Informix data sources do not support multiple result sets.
6. Invoke the CallableStatement.getXXX methods to retrieve values from the OUT
parameters or INOUT parameters.
7. Invoke the CallableStatement.close method to close the CallableStatement
object when you have finished using that object.
Example
The following code illustrates calling a stored procedure that has one input
parameter, four output parameters, and no returned ResultSets. The numbers to
the right of selected statements correspond to the previously-described steps.
int ifcaret;
int ifcareas;
int xsbytes;
String errbuff;
Connection con;
CallableStatement cstmt;
ResultSet rs;
...
cstmt = con.prepareCall("CALL DSN8.DSN8ED2(?,?,?,?,?)");
1
// Create a CallableStatement object
cstmt.setString (1, "DISPLAY THREAD(*)");
2
// Set input parameter (DB2 command)
cstmt.registerOutParameter (2, Types.INTEGER);
3
// Register output parameters
cstmt.registerOutParameter (3, Types.INTEGER);
cstmt.registerOutParameter (4, Types.INTEGER);
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
59
cstmt.registerOutParameter (5, Types.VARCHAR);
cstmt.executeUpdate();
// Call the stored procedure
ifcaret = cstmt.getInt(2);
// Get the output parameter values
ifcareas = cstmt.getInt(3);
xsbytes = cstmt.getInt(4);
errbuff = cstmt.getString(5);
cstmt.close();

Retrieving multiple result sets from a stored procedure in a
JDBC application
If you call a stored procedure that returns result sets, you need to include code to
retrieve the result sets.
About this task
The steps that you take depend on whether you know how many result sets are
returned, and whether you know the contents of those result sets.

Retrieving a known number of result sets from a stored procedure in a JDBC
application:
Retrieving a known number of result sets from a stored procedure is a simpler
procedure than retrieving an unknown number of result sets.
Procedure
To retrieve result sets when you know the number of result sets and their contents,
follow these steps:
1. Invoke the Statement.execute method, the PreparedStatement.execute method,
or the CallableStatement.execute method to call the stored procedure.
Use PreparedStatement.execute if the stored procedure has input parameters.
2. Invoke the getResultSet method to obtain the first result set, which is in a
ResultSet object.
3. In a loop, position the cursor using the next method, and retrieve data from
each column of the current row of the ResultSet object using getXXX methods.
4. If there are n result sets, repeat the following steps n-1 times:
a. Invoke the getMoreResults method to close the current result set and point
to the next result set.
b. Invoke the getResultSet method to obtain the next result set, which is in a
ResultSet object.
c. In a loop, position the cursor using the next method, and retrieve data from
each column of the current row of the ResultSet object using getXXX
methods.
60
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Example
The following code illustrates retrieving two result sets. The first result set contains
an INTEGER column, and the second result set contains a CHAR column. The
numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously described
steps.
CallableStatement cstmt;
ResultSet rs;
int i;
String s;
...
cstmt.execute();
// Call the stored procedure
1
rs = cstmt.getResultSet();
// Get the first result set
2
while (rs.next()) {
// Position the cursor
3
i = rs.getInt(1);
// Retrieve current result set value
System.out.println("Value from first result set = " + i);
// Print the value
}
cstmt.getMoreResults();
// Point to the second result set 4a
// and close the first result set
rs = cstmt.getResultSet();
// Get the second result set
4b
while (rs.next()) {
// Position the cursor
4c
s = rs.getString(1);
// Retrieve current result set value
System.out.println("Value from second result set = " + s);
// Print the value
}
rs.close();
// Close the result set
cstmt.close();
// Close the statement
Retrieving an unknown number of result sets from a stored procedure in a
JDBC application:
Retrieving an unknown number of result sets from a stored procedure is a more
complicated procedure than retrieving a known number of result sets.
About this task
To retrieve result sets when you do not know the number of result sets or their
contents, you need to retrieve ResultSets, until no more ResultSets are returned.
For each ResultSet, use ResultSetMetaData methods to determine its contents.
After you call a stored procedure, follow these basic steps to retrieve the contents
of an unknown number of result sets.
Procedure
1. Check the value that was returned from the execute statement that called the
stored procedure.
If the returned value is true, there is at least one result set, so you need to go
to the next step.
2. Repeat the following steps in a loop:
a. Invoke the getResultSet method to obtain a result set, which is in a
ResultSet object. Invoking this method closes the previous result set.
b. Use ResultSetMetaData methods to determine the contents of the ResultSet,
and retrieve data from the ResultSet.
c. Invoke the getMoreResults method to determine whether there is another
result set. If getMoreResults returns true, go to step 1 to get the next result
set.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
61
Example
The following code illustrates retrieving result sets when you do not know the
number of result sets or their contents. The numbers to the right of selected
statements correspond to the previously described steps.
CallableStatement cstmt;
ResultSet rs;
...
boolean resultsAvailable = cstmt.execute(); // Call the stored procedure
while (resultsAvailable) {
// Test for result sets
1
ResultSet rs = cstmt.getResultSet();
// Get a result set
2a
...
// Process the ResultSet
// as you would process
// a ResultSet from a table
resultsAvailable = cstmt.getMoreResults(); // Check for next result set 2c
// (Also closes the
// previous result set)
}

Keeping result sets open when retrieving multiple result sets from a stored
procedure in a JDBC application:
The getMoreResults method has a form that lets you leave the current ResultSet
open when you open the next ResultSet.
Procedure
To specify whether result sets stay open, follow this process:
When you call getMoreResults to check for the next ResultSet, use this form:
CallableStatement.getMoreResults(int current);
v To keep the current ResultSet open when you check for the next ResultSet,
specify a value of Statement.KEEP_CURRENT_RESULT for current.
v To close the current ResultSet when you check for the next ResultSet, specify a
value of Statement.CLOSE_CURRENT_RESULT for current.
v To close all ResultSet objects, specify a value of Statement.CLOSE_ALL_RESULTS
for current.
Example
The following code keeps all ResultSets open until the final ResultSet has been
retrieved, and then closes all ResultSets.
CallableStatement cstmt;
...
boolean resultsAvailable = cstmt.execute(); // Call the stored procedure
if (resultsAvailable==true) {
// Test for result set
ResultSet rs1 = cstmt.getResultSet();
// Get a result set
...
resultsAvailable = cstmt.getMoreResults(Statement.KEEP_CURRENT_RESULT);
// Check for next result set
// but do not close
// previous result set
if (resultsAvailable==true) {
// Test for another result set
ResultSet rs2 = cstmt.getResultSet();
// Get next result set
...
// Process either ResultSet
}
62
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
}
resultsAvailable = cstmt.getMoreResults(Statement.CLOSE_ALL_RESULTS);
// Close the result sets
LOBs in JDBC applications with the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports methods for updating
and retrieving data from BLOB, CLOB, and DBCLOB columns in a table, and for
calling stored procedures or user-defined functions with BLOB or CLOB
parameters.
Related reference:
“Driver support for JDBC APIs” on page 319
“Properties for the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ” on page 243
Progressive streaming with the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ
If the data source supports progressive streaming, also known as dynamic data
format, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ can use progressive
streaming to retrieve data in LOB or XML columns.
DB2 for z/OS Version 9.1 and later supports progressive streaming for LOBs and
XML objects. DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Version 9.5 and later, IBM
Informix Version 11.50 and later, and DB2 for i V6R1 and later support progressive
streaming for LOBs.
With progressive streaming, the data source dynamically determines the most
efficient mode in which to return LOB or XML data, based on the size of the LOBs
or XML objects.
Progressive streaming is the default behavior in the following environments:
MinimumIBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
version
Minimum data server
version
Types of objects
3.53
DB2 for i V6R1
LOB, XML
3.50
DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and
Windows Version 9.5
LOB
3.50
IBM Informix Version 11.50
LOB
3.2
DB2 for z/OS Version 9
LOB, XML
You set the progressive streaming behavior on new connections using the IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ progressiveStreaming property.
For DB2 for z/OS Version 9.1 and later data sources, or DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and
Windows Version 9.5 and later data sources, you can set the progressive streaming
behavior for existing connections with the
DB2Connection.setDBProgressiveStreaming(DB2BaseDataSource.YES) method. If
you call DB2Connection.setDBProgressiveStreaming(DB2BaseDataSource.YES), all
ResultSet objects that are created on the connection use progressive streaming
behavior.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
63
When progressive streaming is enabled, you can control when the JDBC driver
materializes LOBs with the streamBufferSize property. If a LOB or XML object is
less than or equal to the streamBufferSize value, the object is materialized.
Important: With progressive streaming, when you retrieve a LOB or XML value
from a ResultSet into an application variable, you can manipulate the contents of
that application variable until you move the cursor or close the cursor on the
ResultSet. After that, the contents of the application variable are no longer
available to you. If you perform any actions on the LOB in the application variable,
you receive an SQLException. For example, suppose that progressive streaming is
enabled, and you execute statements like this:
...
ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT CLOBCOL FROM MY_TABLE");
rs.next();
// Retrieve the first row of the ResultSet
Clob clobFromRow1 = rs.getClob(1);
// Put the CLOB from the first column of
// the first row in an application variable
String substr1Clob = clobFromRow1.getSubString(1,50);
// Retrieve the first 50 bytes of the CLOB
rs.next();
// Move the cursor to the next row.
// clobFromRow1 is no longer available.
// String substr2Clob = clobFromRow1.getSubString(51,100);
// This statement would yield an SQLException
Clob clobFromRow2 = rs.getClob(1);
// Put the CLOB from the first column of
// the second row in an application variable
rs.close();
// Close the ResultSet.
// clobFromRow2 is also no longer available.
After you execute rs.next() to position the cursor at the second row of the
ResultSet, the CLOB value in clobFromRow1 is no longer available to you.
Similarly, after you execute rs.close() to close the ResultSet, the values in
clobFromRow1 and clobFromRow2 are no longer available.
If you disable progressive streaming, the way in which the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ handles LOBs depends on the value of the
fullyMaterializeLobData property.
Use of progressive streaming is the preferred method of LOB or XML data
retrieval.
LOB locators with the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ can use LOB locators to retrieve
data in LOB columns.
To cause JDBC to use LOB locators to retrieve data from LOB columns, you need
to set the fullyMaterializeLobData property to false and set the
progressiveStreaming property to NO (DB2BaseDataSource.NO in an application
program).
The effect of fullyMaterializeLobData depends on whether the data source
supports progressive streaming and the value of the progressiveStreaming
property:
v If the data source does not support progressive locators:
If the value of fullyMaterializeLobData is true, LOB data is fully materialized
within the JDBC driver when a row is fetched. If the value is false, LOB data is
streamed. The driver uses locators internally to retrieve LOB data in chunks on
64
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
an as-needed basis It is highly recommended that you set this value to false
when you retrieve LOBs that contain large amounts of data. The default is true.
v If the data source supports progressive streaming, also known as dynamic data
format:
The JDBC driver ignores the value of fullyMaterializeLobData if the
progressiveStreaming property is set to YES (DB2BaseDataSource.YES in an
application program) or is not set.
fullyMaterializeLobData has no effect on stored procedure parameters.
As in any other language, a LOB locator in a Java application is associated with
only one data source. You cannot use a single LOB locator to move data between
two different data sources. To move LOB data between two data sources, you need
to materialize the LOB data when you retrieve it from a table in the first data
source and then insert that data into the table in the second data source.
LOB operations with the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports methods for updating
and retrieving data from BLOB, CLOB, and DBCLOB columns in a table, and for
calling stored procedures or user-defined functions with BLOB or CLOB
parameters.
Among the operations that you can perform on LOB data under the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ are:
v Specify a BLOB or column as an argument of the following ResultSet methods
to retrieve data from a BLOB or CLOB column:
For BLOB columns:
– getBinaryStream
– getBlob
– getBytes
For CLOB columns:
– getAsciiStream
– getCharacterStream
– getClob
– getString
v Call the following ResultSet methods to update a BLOB or CLOB column in an
updatable ResultSet:
For BLOB columns:
– updateBinaryStream
– updateBlob
For CLOB columns:
– updateAsciiStream
– updateCharacterStream
– updateClob
If you specify -1 for the length parameter in any of the previously listed
methods, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ reads the input data
until it is exhausted.
v Use the following PreparedStatement methods to set the values for parameters
that correspond to BLOB or CLOB columns:
For BLOB columns:
– setBytes
– setBlob
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
65
– setBinaryStream
– setObject, where the Object parameter value is an InputStream.
For CLOB columns:
– setString
– setAsciiStream
– setClob
– setCharacterStream
– setObject, where the Object parameter value is a Reader.
If you specify -1 for length, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ reads
the input data until it is exhausted.
v Retrieve the value of a JDBC CLOB parameter using the
CallableStatement.getString method.
Restriction: With IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity,
you cannot call a stored procedure that has DBCLOB OUT or INOUT parameters.
If you are using the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 4.0 or
later, you can perform the following additional operations:
v Use ResultSet.updateXXX or PreparedStatement.setXXX methods to update a
BLOB or CLOB with a length value of up to 2GB for a BLOB or CLOB. For
example, these methods are defined for BLOBs:
ResultSet.updateBlob(int columnIndex, InputStream x, long length)
ResultSet.updateBlob(String columnLabel, InputStream x, long length)
ResultSet.updateBinaryStream(int columnIndex, InputStream x, long length)
ResultSet.updateBinaryStream(String columnLabel, InputStream x, long length)
PreparedStatement.setBlob(int columnIndex, InputStream x, long length)
PreparedStatement.setBlob(String columnLabel, InputStream x, long length)
PreparedStatement.setBinaryStream(int columnIndex, InputStream x, long length)
PreparedStatement.setBinaryStream(String columnLabel, InputStream x, long length)
v Use ResultSet.updateXXX or PreparedStatement.setXXX methods without the
length parameter when you update a BLOB or CLOB, to cause the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ to read the input data until it is exhausted. For
example:
ResultSet.updateBlob(int columnIndex, InputStream x)
ResultSet.updateBlob(String columnLabel, InputStream x)
ResultSet.updateBinaryStream(int columnIndex, InputStream x)
ResultSet.updateBinaryStream(String columnLabel, InputStream x)
PreparedStatement.setBlob(int columnIndex, InputStream x)
PreparedStatement.setBlob(String columnLabel, InputStream x)
PreparedStatement.setBinaryStream(int columnIndex, InputStream x)
PreparedStatement.setBinaryStream(String columnLabel, InputStream x)
v Create a Blob or Clob object that contains no data, using the
Connection.createBlob or Connection.createClob method.
v Materialize a Blob or Clob object on the client, when progressive streaming or
locators are in use, using the Blob.getBinaryStream or Clob.getCharacterStream
method.
v Free the resources that a Blob or Clob object holds, using the Blob.free or
Clob.free method.
Java data types for retrieving or updating LOB column data in
JDBC applications
When the JDBC driver cannot immediately determine the data type of a parameter
that is used with a LOB column, you need to choose a parameter data type that is
compatible with the LOB data type.
66
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to DB2 for
z/OS, when the JDBC driver processes a CallableStatement.setXXX call for a
stored procedure input parameter, or a CallableStatement.registerOutParameter
call for a stored procedure output parameter, the driver cannot determine the
parameter data types.
When the deferPrepares property is set to true, and the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ processes a PreparedStatement.setXXX call, the driver might need
to do extra processing to determine data types. This extra processing can impact
performance.
Input parameters for BLOB columns
For IN parameters for BLOB columns, or INOUT parameters that are used for
input to BLOB columns, you can use one of the following techniques:
v Use a java.sql.Blob input variable, which is an exact match for a BLOB column:
cstmt.setBlob(parmIndex, blobData);
v Use a CallableStatement.setObject call that specifies that the target data type is
BLOB:
byte[] byteData = {(byte)0x1a, (byte)0x2b, (byte)0x3c};
cstmt.setObject(parmInd, byteData, java.sql.Types.BLOB);
v Use an input parameter of type of java.io.ByteArrayInputStream with a
CallableStatement.setBinaryStream call. A java.io.ByteArrayInputStream
object is compatible with a BLOB data type. For this call, you need to specify the
exact length of the input data:
java.io.ByteArrayInputStream byteStream =
new java.io.ByteArrayInputStream(byteData);
int numBytes = byteData.length;
cstmt.setBinaryStream(parmIndex, byteStream, numBytes);
Output parameters for BLOB columns
For OUT parameters for BLOB columns, or INOUT parameters that are used for
output from BLOB columns, you can use the following technique:
v Use the CallableStatement.registerOutParameter call to specify that an output
parameter is of type BLOB. Then you can retrieve the parameter value into any
variable that has a data type that is compatible with a BLOB data type. For
example, the following code lets you retrieve a BLOB value into a byte[]
variable:
cstmt.registerOutParameter(parmIndex, java.sql.Types.BLOB);
cstmt.execute();
byte[] byteData = cstmt.getBytes(parmIndex);
Input parameters for CLOB columns
For IN parameters for CLOB columns, or INOUT parameters that are used for
input to CLOB columns, you can use one of the following techniques:
v Use a java.sql.Clob input variable, which is an exact match for a CLOB column:
cstmt.setClob(parmIndex, clobData);
v Use a CallableStatement.setObject call that specifies that the target data type is
CLOB:
String charData = "CharacterString";
cstmt.setObject(parmInd, charData, java.sql.Types.CLOB);
v Use one of the following types of stream input parameters:
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
67
– A java.io.StringReader input parameter with a cstmt.setCharacterStream
call:
java.io.StringReader reader = new java.io.StringReader(charData);
cstmt.setCharacterStream(parmIndex, reader, charData.length);
– A java.io.ByteArrayInputStream parameter with a cstmt.setAsciiStream
call, for ASCII data:
byte[] charDataBytes = charData.getBytes("US-ASCII");
java.io.ByteArrayInputStream byteStream =
new java.io.ByteArrayInputStream (charDataBytes);
cstmt.setAsciiStream(parmIndex, byteStream, charDataBytes.length);
For these calls, you need to specify the exact length of the input data.
v Use a String input parameter with a cstmt.setString call:
cstmt.setString(parmIndex, charData);
If the length of the data is greater than 32KB, and the JDBC driver has no
DESCRIBE information about the parameter data type, the JDBC driver assigns
the CLOB data type to the input data.
v Use a String input parameter with a cstmt.setObject call, and specify the target
data type as VARCHAR or LONGVARCHAR:
cstmt.setObject(parmIndex, charData, java.sql.Types.VARCHAR);
If the length of the data is greater than 32KB, and the JDBC driver has no
DESCRIBE information about the parameter data type, the JDBC driver assigns
the CLOB data type to the input data.
Output parameters for CLOB columns
For OUT parameters for CLOB columns, or INOUT parameters that are used for
output from CLOB columns, you can use one of the following techniques:
v Use the CallableStatement.registerOutParameter call to specify that an output
parameter is of type CLOB. Then you can retrieve the parameter value into a
Clob variable. For example:
cstmt.registerOutParameter(parmIndex, java.sql.Types.CLOB);
cstmt.execute();
Clob clobData = cstmt.getClob(parmIndex);
v Use the CallableStatement.registerOutParameter call to specify that an output
parameter is of type VARCHAR or LONGVARCHAR:
cstmt.registerOutParameter(parmIndex, java.sql.Types.VARCHAR);
cstmt.execute();
String charData = cstmt.getString(parmIndex);
This technique should be used only if you know that the length of the retrieved
data is less than or equal to 32KB. Otherwise, the data is truncated.

ROWIDs in JDBC with the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ
DB2 for z/OS and DB2 for i support the ROWID data type for a column in a
database table. A ROWID is a value that uniquely identifies a row in a table.
68
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Although IBM Informix also supports rowids, those rowids have the INTEGER
data type. You can select an IBM Informix rowid column into a variable with a
four-byte integer data type.
You can use the following ResultSet methods to retrieve data from a ROWID
column:
v getRowId (JDBC 4.0 and later)
v getBytes
v getObject
You can use the following ResultSet method to update a ROWID column of an
updatable ResultSet:
v updateRowId (JDBC 4.0 and later)
updateRowId is valid only if the target database system supports updating of
ROWID columns.
If you are using JDBC 3.0, for getObject, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ returns an instance of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ-only
class com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2RowID.
If you are using JDBC 4.0, for getObject, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ returns an instance of the class java.sql.RowId.
You can use the following PreparedStatement methods to set a value for a
parameter that is associated with a ROWID column:
v setRowId (JDBC 4.0 and later)
v setBytes
v setObject
If you are using JDBC 3.0, for setObject, use the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ-only type com.ibm.db2.jcc.Types.ROWID or an instance of the
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2RowID class as the target type for the parameter.
If you are using JDBC 4.0, for setObject, use the type java.sql.Types.ROWID or an
instance of the java.sql.RowId class as the target type for the parameter.
You can use the following CallableStatement methods to retrieve a ROWID
column as an output parameter from a stored procedure call:
v getRowId (JDBC 4.0 and later)
v getObject
To call a stored procedure that is defined with a ROWID output parameter, register
that parameter to be of the java.sql.Types.ROWID type.
ROWID values are valid for different periods of time, depending on the data
source on which those ROWID values are defined. Use the
DatabaseMetaData.getRowIdLifetime method to determine the time period for
which a ROWID value is valid. The values that are returned for the data sources
are listed in the following table.
Table 15. DatabaseMetaData.getRowIdLifetime values for supported data sources

Example: Using PreparedStatement.setRowId with a java.sql.RowId target type: Suppose
that rwid is a RowId object. To set parameter 1, use this form of the setRowId
method:
ps.setRowId(1, rid);
Example: Using ResultSet.getRowId to retrieve a ROWID value from a data source: To
retrieve a ROWID value from the first column of a result set into RowId object
rwid, use this form of the ResultSet.getRowId method:
java.sql.RowId rwid = rs.getRowId(1);
Example: Using CallableStatement.registerOutParameter with a java.sql.Types.ROWID
parameter type: To register parameter 1 of a CALL statement as a
java.sql.Types.ROWID data type, use this form of the registerOutParameter
method:
cs.registerOutParameter(1, java.sql.Types.ROWID)

Update and retrieval of timestamps with time zone information
in JDBC applications
The JDBC methods and data types that you use and the information that the IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ has about the column data types determine
the timestamp values that are sent to and received from TIMESTAMP WITH TIME
ZONE or TIMESTAMP columns.
Updates of values in TIMESTAMP or TIMESTAMP WITH TIME
ZONE columns
You can use the following standard JDBC methods to update a TIMESTAMP WITH
TIME ZONE or TIMESTAMP column:
v PreparedStatement.setObject
v PreparedStatement.setTimestamp
v PreparedStatement.setString
For a PreparedStatement.setTimestamp call in which the second parameter is a
DBTimestamp object and the third parameter is a Calendar object, the value that is
passed to a TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE or TIMESTAMP column contains the
time zone value in the Calendar parameter, and not the time zone value in the
DBTimestamp object. For a PreparedStatement.setTimestamp in which the second
parameter is a DBTimestamp object and there is no Calendar parameter, the IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ value that is passed to a TIMESTAMP
WITH TIME ZONE or TIMESTAMP column has the default time zone, which is
that of the Java virtual machine in which the application is running.
70
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
If you want the value that is passed to a TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE or
TIMESTAMP column to use the time zone that is in the DBTimestamp object, you
need to use PreparedStatement.setObject.
Example: Suppose that table TSTABLE is defined like this:
CREATE TABLE TSTABLE (
TSCOL TIMESTAMP,
TSTZCOL TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE)
Also suppose that the default time zone of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is
UTC-08:00 (Pacific Standard Time). The following code assigns timestamp values to
the column.
...
java.util.TimeZone esttz = java.util.TimeZone.getTimeZone("EST");
java.util.Calendar estcal = java.util.Calendar.getInstance(esttz);
// Construct a Calendar object with the
// UTC-05:00 (Eastern Standard Time) time zone.
java.util.Calendar defcal = java.util.Calendar.getInstance();
// Construct a Calendar object
// with the default time zone.
java.sql.Timestamp ts =
java.sql.Timestamp.valueOf("2010-10-27 21:22:33.123456");
// Assign a timestamp to a Timestamp object.
DBTimestamp dbts = new DBTimestamp(ts,estcal);
// Construct a DBTimestamp object that has
// the UTC-05:00 time zone.
...
PreparedStatement ps = con.prepareStatement(
"INSERT INTO TSTABLE (TSCOL,TSTZCOL) VALUES (?,?)");
//

Alternatively, if you want to assign data that has a time zone or has a precision of
greater than nine to a TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE column, you can construct
a DBTimestamp object, and use the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ-only
method DB2PreparedStatement.setDBTimestamp to update a TIMESTAMP WITH
TIME ZONE column.
Example: Suppose that table TSTABLE is defined like this:
CREATE TABLE TSTABLE (
TSCOL TIMESTAMP,
TSTZCOL TIMESTAMP(12) WITH TIME ZONE)
The following code assigns a timestamp value with a time zone and a precision of
10 to each column.
...
DBTimestamp tstz =
DBTimestamp.valueOfDBString("2010-10-28-00.22.33.1234567890-05:00");
// Create a DBTimestamp object from the input value
PreparedStatement ps = con.prepareStatement(
"INSERT INTO TSTABLE (TSCOL, TSTXCOL) VALUES (?,?)");
DB2PreparedStatement dbps = (DB2PreparedStatement)ps;
dbps.setDBTimestamp(1, tstz);
dbps.setDBTimestamp(2, tstz);
dbps.execute(); // 2010-10-28-00.22.33.123456 is assigned to TSCOL if
// the driver has information that the column data type is
// TIMESTAMP.
// 2010-10-28-00.22.33.1234567890-05:00 is assigned to TSCOL
// if the driver has no information about the column

data type.
2010-10-28-00.22.33.1234567890-05:00 is assigned to TSTZCOL
regardless of whether the driver has information that
the column data type is TIMESTAMP(12) WITH TIME ZONE.
Retrieval of values from TIMESTAMP or TIMESTAMP WITH TIME
ZONE columns
You can use the following standard JDBC methods to retrieve data from a
TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE or TIMESTAMP column or output parameter:
v ResultSet.getTimestamp
v CallableStatement.getTimestamp
v ResultSet.getObject
v CallableStatement.getObject
v ResultSet.getString
v CallableStatement.getString
For a ResultSet.getTimestamp, CallableStatement.getTimestamp,
ResultSet.getObject, or CallableStatement.getObject call, you can specify the
type of object that you want the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ to
return by setting the DB2BaseDataSource.timestampOutputType property:
v If you set the property to DB2BaseDataSource.JDBC_TIMESTAMP (1), the driver
returns a java.sql.Timestamp object.
v If you set the property to DB2BaseDataSource.JCC_DBTIMESTAMP (2), the
driver returns a com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp object.
For a ResultSet.getTimestamp or CallableStatement.getTimestamp call, if the
ResultSet.getTimestamp or CallableStatement.getTimestamp call has a Calendar
parameter with a non-null value, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
uses the Calendar object when it constructs the returned object. If the
ResultSet.getTimestamp or CallableStatement.getTimestamp call has no Calendar
parameter, or the Calendar parameter value is null, the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ uses the default time zone when it constructs the returned object.
If you want to retrieve a timestamp with the time zone value that is in a
TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE column, call ResultSet.getObject or
CallableStatement.getObject, and then call DBTimestamp.toDBString(true) to
retrieve the timestamp with the time zone.
getString retrieves the timestamp value in the standard JDBC format: without the
time zone, and with a precision of up to nine. The returned value is adjusted for
the difference between the time zone of the column value and the default time
zone.
Example: Suppose that table TSTABLE is defined like this:
CREATE TABLE TSTABLE (
TSCOL TIMESTAMP,
TSTZCOL TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE)
Also suppose that the default time zone is UTC-08:00 (Pacific Standard Time). The
following code retrieves timestamp values from the TIMESTAMP column.
...
java.util.TimeZone esttz = java.util.TimeZone.getTimeZone("EST");
java.util.Calendar estcal = java.util.Calendar.getInstance(esttz);
java.util.Calendar defcal = java.util.Calendar.getInstance();

setDBTimestamp when you need to preserve the original timestamp with time zone
information when you retrieve data from one table and insert it into another table.

Distinct types in JDBC applications
A distinct type is a user-defined data type that is internally represented as a
built-in SQL data type. You create a distinct type by executing the SQL statement
CREATE DISTINCT TYPE.
In a JDBC program, you can create a distinct type using the executeUpdate method
to execute the CREATE DISTINCT TYPE statement. You can also use
78
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
executeUpdate to create a table that includes a column of that type. When you
retrieve data from a column of that type, or update a column of that type, you use
Java identifiers with data types that correspond to the built-in types on which the
distinct types are based.
The following example creates a distinct type that is based on an INTEGER type,
creates a table with a column of that type, inserts a row into the table, and
retrieves the row from the table:
Connection con;
Statement stmt;
ResultSet rs;
String empNumVar;
int shoeSizeVar;
...
stmt = con.createStatement();
// Create a Statement object
stmt.executeUpdate(
"CREATE DISTINCT TYPE SHOESIZE AS INTEGER");
// Create distinct type
stmt.executeUpdate(
"CREATE TABLE EMP_SHOE (EMPNO CHAR(6), EMP_SHOE_SIZE SHOESIZE)");
// Create table with distinct type
stmt.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO EMP_SHOE " +
"VALUES (’000010’, 6)");
// Insert a row
rs=stmt.executeQuery("SELECT EMPNO, EMP_SHOE_SIZE FROM EMP_SHOE);
// Create ResultSet for query
while (rs.next()) {
empNumVar = rs.getString(1);
// Get employee number
shoeSizeVar = rs.getInt(2);
// Get shoe size (use int
// because underlying type
// of SHOESIZE is INTEGER)
System.out.println("Employee number = " + empNumVar +
" Shoe size = " + shoeSizeVar);
}
rs.close();
// Close ResultSet
stmt.close();
// Close Statement

Invocation of stored procedures with ARRAY parameters in
JDBC applications
JDBC applications that run under the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
can call stored procedures that have ARRAY parameters.
ARRAY parameters are supported in stored procedures on DB2 for Linux, UNIX,
and Windows Version 9.5 and later.
ARRAY parameters are supported in native SQL procedures on DB2 for z/OS
Version 11 and later. Programs that call DB2 for z/OS stored procedures with array
parameters must use IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4
connectivity.
You can use java.sql.Array objects as arguments for calling stored procedures
with array parameters.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
79
For IN or INOUT parameters, use the DB2Connection.createArrayOf method (JDBC
3.0) or the Connection.createArrayOf method (JDBC 4.0 or later) to create a
java.sql.Array object. Use the CallableStatement.setArray method or the
CallableStatement.setObject method to assign a java.sql.Array object to an
ARRAY stored procedure parameter.
|
|
|
|
|
You can register an OUT ARRAY parameter for a stored procedure call by
specifying java.sql.Types.ARRAY as the parameter type in a
CallableStatement.registerOutParameter call.
There are two ways to retrieve data from an ARRAY output parameter:
v Use the CallableStatement.getArray method to retrieve the data into a
java.sql.Array object, and use the java.sql.Array.getArray method to retrieve
the contents of the java.sql.Array object into a Java array.
v Use the CallableStatement.getArray method to retrieve the data into a
java.sql.Array object. Use the java.sql.Array.getResultSet() method to
retrieve the data into a ResultSet object. Use ResultSet methods to retrieve
elements of the array. Each row of the ResultSet contains two columns:
– An index into the array, which starts at 1
– The array element
Example: Suppose that input and output parameters IN_PHONE and
OUT_PHONE in stored procedure GET_EMP_DATA are arrays that are defined
like this:
CREATE TYPE PHONENUMBERS AS VARCHAR(10) ARRAY[5]
Call GET_EMP_DATA with the two parameters.
Connection con;
CallableStatement cstmt;
ResultSet rs;
java.sql.Array inPhoneData;
...
cstmt = con.prepareCall("CALL GET_EMP_DATA(?,?)");
// Create a CallableStatement object
cstmt.setObject (1, inPhoneData); // Set input parameter
cstmt.registerOutParameter (2, java.sql.Types.ARRAY);
// Register out parameters
cstmt.executeUpdate();
// Call the stored procedure
Array outPhoneData = cstmt.getArray(2);
// Get the output parameter array
System.out.println("Parameter values from GET_EMP_DATA call: ");
String [] outPhoneNums = (String [])outPhoneData.getArray();
// Retrieve output data from the JDBC Array object
// into a Java String array
for(int i=0; i<outPhoneNums.length; i++) {
System.out.print(outPhoneNums[i]);
System.out.println();
}
Savepoints in JDBC applications
An SQL savepoint represents the state of data and schemas at a particular point in
time within a unit of work. You can use SQL statements to set a savepoint, release
a savepoint, and restore data and schemas to the state that the savepoint
represents.
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports the following methods
for using savepoints:
80
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Connection.setSavepoint() or Connection.setSavepoint(String name)
Sets a savepoint. These methods return a Savepoint object that is used in later
releaseSavepoint or rollback operations.
When you execute either of these methods, DB2 executes the form of the
SAVEPOINT statement that includes ON ROLLBACK RETAIN CURSORS.
Connection.releaseSavepoint(Savepoint savepoint)
Releases the specified savepoint, and all subsequently established savepoints.
Connection.rollback(Savepoint savepoint)
Rolls back work to the specified savepoint.
DatabaseMetaData.supportsSavepoints()
Indicates whether a data source supports savepoints.
You can indicate whether savepoints are unique by calling the method
DB2Connection.setSavePointUniqueOption. If you call this method with a value of
true, the application cannot set more than one savepoint with the same name
within the same unit of recovery. If you call this method with a value of false (the
default), multiple savepoints with the same name can be created within the same
unit of recovery, but creation of a savepoint destroys a previously created
savepoint with the same name.
The following example demonstrates how to set a savepoint, roll back to the
savepoint, and release the savepoint.
Connection con;
Statement stmt;
ResultSet rs;
String empNumVar;
int shoeSizeVar;
...
con.setAutoCommit(false);
// set autocommit OFF
stmt = con.createStatement();
// Create a Statement object
...
// Perform some SQL
con.commit();
// Commit the transaction
stmt.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO EMP_SHOE " +
"VALUES (’000010’, 6)");
// Insert a row
((com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Connection)con).setSavePointUniqueOption(true);
// Indicate that savepoints
// are unique within a unit
// of recovery
Savepoint savept = con.setSavepoint("savepoint1");
// Create a savepoint
...
stmt.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO EMP_SHOE " +
"VALUES (’000020’, 10)");
// Insert another row
conn.rollback(savept);
// Roll back work to the point
// after the first insert
...
con.releaseSavepoint(savept);
// Release the savepoint
stmt.close();
// Close the Statement
conn.commit();
// Commit the transaction

Retrieval of automatically generated keys in JDBC
applications
With the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, you can retrieve
automatically generated keys (also called auto-generated keys) from a table using
JDBC 3.0 methods.
An automatically generated key is any value that is generated by the data server,
instead of being specified by the user. One type of automatically generated key is
the contents of an identity column. An identity column is a table column that
provides a way for the data source to automatically generate a numeric value for
each row. You define an identity column in a CREATE TABLE or ALTER TABLE
statement by specifying the AS IDENTITY clause when you define a column that
has an exact numeric type with a scale of 0 (SMALLINT, INTEGER, BIGINT,
DECIMAL with a scale of zero, or a distinct type based on one of these types).
For connections to DB2 for z/OS or DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, the IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports the return of automatically
generated keys for INSERT statements, for searched UPDATE or searched DELETE
statements, or for MERGE statements. For UPDATE, DELETE, or MERGE
statements, you can identify any columns as automatically generated keys, even if
they are not generated by the data server. In this case, the column values that are
returned are the column values for the rows that are modified by the UPDATE,
DELETE, or MERGE statement.
Restriction: If the Connection or DataSource property atomicMultiRowInsert is set
to DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1), you cannot prepare an SQL statement for retrieval of
automatically generated keys and use the PreparedStatement object for batch
updates. The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 3.50 or later
throws an SQLException when you call the addBatch or executeBatch method on a
PreparedStatement object that is prepared to return automatically generated keys.

method” on page 32

Retrieving auto-generated keys for an INSERT statement
With the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, you can use JDBC 3.0
methods to retrieve the keys that are automatically generated when you execute an
INSERT statement.
Procedure
To retrieve automatically generated keys that are generated by an INSERT
statement, you need to perform these steps:
82
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
1. Use one of the following methods to indicate that you want to return
automatically generated keys:
v If you plan to use the PreparedStatement.executeUpdate method to insert
rows, invoke one of these forms of the Connection.prepareStatement method
to create a PreparedStatement object:
The following form is valid for a table on any data source that supports
identity columns.
Restriction: For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 3.57 or
later, the following form is not valid for inserting rows into a view on a DB2
for z/OS data server.
Connection.prepareStatement(sql-statement,
Statement.RETURN_GENERATED_KEYS);
If the data server is DB2 for z/OS, the following forms are valid only if the
data server supports SELECT FROM INSERT statements. With the first form,
you specify the names of the columns for which you want automatically
generated keys. With the second form, you specify the positions in the table
of the columns for which you want automatically generated keys.
Connection.prepareStatement(sql-statement, String [] columnNames);
Connection.prepareStatement(sql-statement, int [] columnIndexes);
v If you use the Statement.executeUpdate method to insert rows, invoke one
of these forms of the Statement.executeUpdate method:
The following form is valid for a table on any data source that supports
identity columns.
Restriction: For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 3.57 or
later, the following form is not valid for inserting rows into a view on a DB2
for z/OS data server.
Statement.executeUpdate(sql-statement, Statement.RETURN_GENERATED_KEYS);
If the data server is DB2 for z/OS, the following forms are valid only if the
data server supports SELECT FROM INSERT statements. With the first form,
you specify the names of the columns for which you want automatically
generated keys. With the second form, you specify the positions in the table
of the columns for which you want automatically generated keys.
Statement.executeUpdate(sql-statement, String [] columnNames);
Statement.executeUpdate(sql-statement, int [] columnIndexes);
2. Invoke the PreparedStatement.getGeneratedKeys method or the
Statement.getGeneratedKeys method to retrieve a ResultSet object that
contains the automatically generated key values.
If you include the Statement.RETURN_GENERATED_KEYS parameter, the data type
of the automatically generated keys in the ResultSet is DECIMAL, regardless
of the data type of the corresponding column.
Example
The following code creates a table with an identity column, inserts a row into the
table, and retrieves the automatically generated key value for the identity column.
The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously
described steps.
import java.sql.*;
import java.math.*;
import com.ibm.db2.jcc.*;
Connection con;
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
83
Statement stmt;
ResultSet rs;
java.math.BigDecimal iDColVar;
...
stmt = con.createStatement();
// Create a Statement object
stmt.executeUpdate(
"CREATE TABLE EMP_PHONE (EMPNO CHAR(6), PHONENO CHAR(4), " +
"IDENTCOL INTEGER GENERATED ALWAYS AS IDENTITY)");
// Create table with identity column
stmt.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO EMP_PHONE (EMPNO, PHONENO) " +
1
"VALUES (’000010’, ’5555’)",
// Insert a row
Statement.RETURN_GENERATED_KEYS);
// Indicate you want automatically
// generated keys
rs = stmt.getGeneratedKeys();
// Retrieve the automatically
2
// generated key value in a ResultSet.
// Only one row is returned.
// Create ResultSet for query
while (rs.next()) {
java.math.BigDecimal idColVar = rs.getBigDecimal(1);
// Get automatically generated key
// value
System.out.println("automatically generated key value = " + idColVar);
}
rs.close();
// Close ResultSet
stmt.close();
// Close Statement
With any version of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, you can
retrieve the most recently assigned value of an identity column by explicitly
executing the IDENTITY_VAL_LOCAL built-in function. Execute code similar to
this:
String idntVal;
Connection con;
Statement stmt;
ResultSet rs;
...
stmt = con.createStatement();
// Create a Statement object
rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT IDENTITY_VAL_LOCAL() FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1");
// Get the result table from the query.
// This is a single row with the most
// recent identity column value.
while (rs.next()) {
// Position the cursor
idntVal = rs.getString(1);
// Retrieve column value
System.out.println("Identity column value = " + idntVal);
// Print the column value
}
rs.close();
// Close the ResultSet
stmt.close();
// Close the Statement
Retrieving auto-generated keys for an UPDATE, DELETE, or
MERGE statement
With the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, you can use JDBC 3.0
methods to retrieve the keys that are automatically generated when you execute a
searched UPDATE, searched DELETE, or MERGE statement.
Procedure
To retrieve automatically generated keys that are generated by an UPDATE,
DELETE, or MERGE statement, you need to perform these steps:
1. Construct a String array that contains the names of the columns from which
you want to return automatically generated keys.
The array must be an array of column names, and not column indexes.
84
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
2. Set the autocommit mode for the connection to false.
3. Use one of the following methods to indicate that you want to return
automatically generated keys:
v If you plan to use the PreparedStatement.executeUpdate method to update,
delete, or merge rows, invoke this form of the Connection.prepareStatement
method to create a PreparedStatement object:
Connection.prepareStatement(sql-statement, String [] columnNames);
v If you use the Statement.executeUpdate method to update, delete, or merge
rows, invoke this form of the Statement.executeUpdate method:
Statement.executeUpdate(sql-statement, String [] columnNames);
4. Invoke the PreparedStatement.getGeneratedKeys method or the
Statement.getGeneratedKeys method to retrieve a ResultSet object that
contains the automatically generated key values.
Example
Suppose that a table is defined like this and has thirty rows:
CREATE TABLE EMP_BONUS
(EMPNO CHAR(6),
BONUS DECIMAL(9,2))
The following code names the EMPNO column as an automatically generated key,
updates the thirty rows in the EMP_BONUS table, and retrieves the values of
EMPNO for the updated rows. The numbers to the right of selected statements
correspond to the previously described steps.
import java.sql.*;
...
Connection conn;
...
String[] agkNames = {"EMPNO"};
1
int updateCount = 0;
conn.setAutoCommit(false);
2
PreparedStatement ps =
3
conn.prepareStatement(“UPDATE EMP_BONUS SET BONUS = " +
“ BONUS + 300.00”,agkNames);
updateCount = ps.executeUpdate();
ResultSet rs = ps.getGeneratedKeys();
4
while (rs.next()) {
String agkEmpNo = rs.getString(1);
// Get automatically generated key value
System.out.println("Automatically generated key value = " + agkEmpNo);
}
ps.close();
conn.close();
Named parameter markers in JDBC applications
You can use named parameter markers instead of standard parameter markers in
PreparedStatement and CallableStatement objects to assign values to the input
parameter markers. You can also use named parameter markers instead of
standard parameter markers in CallableStatement objects to register OUT
parameters that have named parameter markers.
SQL strings that contain the following SQL elements can include named parameter
markers:
v CALL
v DELETE
v INSERT
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
85

Named parameter markers make your JDBC applications more readable. If you
have named parameter markers in an application, set the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ Connection or DataSource property
enableNamedParameterMarkers to DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1) to direct the driver
to accept named parameter markers and send them to the data source as standard
parameter markers.
Related reference:
“Common IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ properties for all supported
database products” on page 244
Using named parameter markers with PreparedStatement objects
You can use named parameter markers instead of standard parameter markers in
PreparedStatement objects to assign values to the parameter markers.
Before you begin
To ensure that applications with named parameters work correctly, regardless of
the data server type and version, before you use named parameter markers in your
applications, set the Connection or DataSource property
enableNamedParameterMarkers to DB2BaseDataSource.YES.
About this task
Procedure
To use named parameter markers with PreparedStatement objects, follow these
steps:
1. Execute the Connection.prepareStatement method on an SQL statement string
that contains named parameter markers. The named parameter markers must
follow the rules for SQL host variable names.
You cannot mix named parameter markers and standard parameter markers in
the same SQL statement string.
Named parameter markers are case-insensitive.
2. For each named parameter marker, use a
DB2PreparedStatement.setJccXXXAtName method to assign a value to each
named input parameter.
If you use the same named parameter marker more than once in the same SQL
statement string, you need to call a setJccXXXAtName method for that parameter
marker only once.
Recommendation: Do not use the same named parameter marker more than
once in the same SQL statement string if the input to that parameter marker is
a stream. Doing so can cause unexpected results.
Restriction: You cannot use standard JDBC PreparedStatement.setXXX methods
with named parameter markers. Doing so causes an exception to be thrown.
3. Execute the PreparedStatement.
86
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Example
The following code uses named parameter markers to update the phone number to
'4657' for the employee with employee number '000010'. The numbers to the right
of selected statements correspond to the previously described steps.
Connection con;
PreparedStatement pstmt;
int numUpd;
...
pstmt = con.prepareStatement(
"UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET PHONENO=:phonenum WHERE EMPNO=:empnum");
// Create a PreparedStatement object
1
((com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2PreparedStatement)pstmt).setJccStringAtName
("phonenum", "4567");
// Assign a value to phonenum parameter 2
((com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2PreparedStatement)pstmt).setJccStringAtName
("empnum", "000010");
// Assign a value to empnum parameter
numUpd = pstmt.executeUpdate();
// Perform the update
3
pstmt.close();
// Close the PreparedStatement object
The following code uses named parameter markers to update values in a PL/SQL
block. The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously
described steps.
Connection con;
PreparedStatement pstmt;
int numUpd;
...
String sql =
"BEGIN " +
" UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET PHONENO = :phonenum WHERE EMPNO = :empnum; " +
"END;";
pstmt = con.prepareStatement(sql); // Create a PreparedStatement object

((com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2PreparedStatement)pstmt).setJccStringAtName
("phonenum", "4567");
// Assign a value to phonenum parameter 2
((com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2PreparedStatement)pstmt).setJccStringAtName
("empnum", "000010");
// Assign a value to empnum parameter
numUpd = pstmt.executeUpdate();
// Perform the update

Using named parameter markers with CallableStatement objects
You can use named parameter markers instead of standard parameter markers in
CallableStatement objects to assign values to IN or INOUT parameters and to
register OUT parameters.
Before you begin
To ensure that applications with named parameters work correctly, regardless of
the data server type and version, before you use named parameter markers in your
applications, set the Connection or DataSource property
enableNamedParameterMarkers to DB2BaseDataSource.YES.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
87
About this task
Procedure
To use named parameter markers with CallableStatement objects, follow these
steps:
1. Execute the Connection.prepareCall method on an SQL statement string that
contains named parameter markers.
The named parameter markers must follow the rules for SQL host variable
names.
You cannot mix named parameter markers and standard parameter markers in
the same SQL statement string.
Named parameter markers are case-insensitive.
2. If you do not know the names of the named parameter markers in the CALL
statement, or the mode of the parameters (IN, OUT, or INOUT):
a. Call the CallableStatement.getParameterMetaData method to obtain a
ParameterMetaData object with information about the parameters.
b. Call the ParameterMetaData.getParameterMode method to retrieve the
parameter mode.
c. Cast the ParameterMetaData object to a DB2ParameterMetaData object.
d. Call the DB2ParameterMetaData.getParameterMarkerNames method to retrieve
the parameter names.
3. For each named parameter marker that represents an OUT parameter, use a
DB2CallableStatement.registerJccOutParameterAtName method to register the
OUT parameter with a data type.
If you use the same named parameter marker more than once in the same SQL
statement string, you need to call a registerJccOutParameterAtName method for
that parameter marker only once. All parameters with the same name are
registered as the same data type.
Restriction: You cannot use standard JDBC
CallableStatement.registerOutParameter methods with named parameter
markers. Doing so causes an exception to be thrown.
4. For each named parameter marker for an input parameter, use a
DB2CallableStatement.setJccXXXAtName method to assign a value to each
named input parameter.
setJccXXXAtName methods are inherited from DB2PreparedStatement.
If you use the same named parameter marker more than once in the same SQL
statement string, you need to call a setJccXXXAtName method for that parameter
marker only once.
Recommendation: Do not use the same named parameter marker more than
once in the same SQL statement string if the input to that parameter marker is
a stream. Doing so can cause unexpected results.
5. Execute the CallableStatement.
6. Call CallableStatement.getXXX methods or
DB2CallableStatement.getJccXXXAtName methods to retrieve output parameter
values.
88
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Example
The following code illustrates calling a stored procedure that has one input
VARCHAR parameter and one output INTEGER parameter, which are represented

// Create a CallableStatement object 1
((com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2CallableStatement)cstmt).

Providing extended client information to the data source with
client info properties
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 4.0 supports JDBC 4.0
client info properties, which you can use to provide extra information about the
client to the server. This information can be used for accounting, workload
management, or debugging.
90
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
About this task
Extended client information is sent to the database server when the application
performs an action that accesses the server, such as executing SQL.
The application can also use the Connection.getClientInfo method to retrieve
client information from the database server, or execute the
DatabaseMetaData.getClientInfoProperties method to determine which client
information the driver supports.
The JDBC 4.0 client info properties should be used instead IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ-only methods, which are deprecated.
Procedure
To set client info properties, follow these steps:
1. Create a Connection.
2. Call the java.sql.Connection.setClientInfo method to set any of the client
info properties that the database server supports.
3. Execute an SQL statement to cause the information to be sent to the database
server.
Example
The following code performs the previous steps to pass a client's user name and
host name to theDB2 server. The numbers to the right of selected statements
correspond to the previously-described steps.
public class ClientInfoTest {
public static void main(String[] args) {
String url = "jdbc:db2://sysmvs1.stl.ibm.com:5021/san_jose";
try {
Class.forName("com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Driver");

user, password);
conn.setClientInfo("ClientUser", "Michael L Thompson"); 2
conn.setClientInfo("ClientHostname, "sjwkstn1");
// Execute SQL to force extended client information to be sent
// to the server

Extended parameter information with the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ-only methods and constants let you
assign the default value or no value to table columns or ResultSet columns.
The data server must support extended indicators before you can use the methods
that provide extended indicator information in your Java applications. If you call
one of those methods against a data server that does not support extended
indicators, an exception is thrown. Extended parameter information is supported
by DB2 for z/OS Version 10 or later, or DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows
Version 9.7 or later.
The methods that provide extended parameter information are listed in the
following table.
Extended parameter information methods
Purpose
DB2PreparedStatement.setDBDefault,
DB2PreparedStatement.setJccDBDefaultAtName
Sets an input parameter to its default value.
DB2PreparedStatement.setDBUnassigned,
DB2PreparedStatement.setJccDBUnassignedAtName
Indicates that an input parameter is unassigned. This
action yields the same behavior that would occur if the
input parameter did not appear in the SQL statement
text.
DB2ResultSet.updateDBDefault
Sets a column value in the current ResultSet row to its
default value.
These methods are applicable only for parameter markers that appear in one of the
following places:
v The SET list of an UPDATE statement
v The SET list of a MERGE statement
v The VALUES list of an INSERT statement
v The VALUES list of a MERGE statement
94
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
v The source table in a MERGE statement
v The SELECT list of an INSERT from SELECT statement
An SQLException is raised if you use these methods in any other context.
Alternatively, you can use the standard PreparedStatement.setObject or
ResultSet.updateObject methods with IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ-only constants DB2PreparedStatement.DB_PARAMETER_DEFAULT or
DB2PreparedStatement.DB_PARAMETER_UNASSIGNED to assign the default value or no
value to parameters.
Extended parameter information can simplify application programs that have
several input variables, each of which can send a value or the default value to the
data server, or does not need to appear in the SQL statement. Instead of preparing
separate statement strings for all combinations of variable values, you can prepare
a single statement string. The resulting PreparedStatement object can be used in a
homogeneous batch, whereas multiple different PreparedStatement objects cannot
be used in a homogeneous batch.
Related reference:
“DB2PreparedStatement interface” on page 435
Using DB2PreparedStatement methods or constants to
provide extended parameter information
Use DB2PreparedStatement methods or PreparedStatement methods with
DB2PreparedStatement constants to assign default values to target columns or to
assign no values to target columns.
About this task
Follow these steps to send extended client information for a PreparedStatement to
the data server.
Procedure
1. Create a PreparedStatement object.
The SQL statement is a INSERT, UPDATE, or MERGE statement.
2. If you are not using setObject to assign the values, cast the PreparedStatement
object to a com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2PreparedStatement object.
3. Call one of the following methods:
v If you are not using setObject to assign the value:
– To assign the default value of the target column to the input parameter,
call DB2PreparedStatement.setDBDefault or
DB2PreparedStatement.setJccDBDefaultAtName.
– To mark the input parameter as unassigned, call
DB2PreparedStatement.setDBUnassigned or
DB2PreparedStatement.setJccDBUnassignedAtName.
v If you are using setObject to assign the value:
– To assign the default value of the target column to the input parameter,
call PreparedStatement.setObject with
DB2PreparedStatement.DB_PARAMETER_DEFAULT as the assigned value.
– To mark the input parameter as unassigned, call
PreparedStatement.setObject with
DB2PreparedStatement.DB_PARAMETER_UNASSIGNED as the assigned value.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
95
4. Execute the SQL statement.
Example
The following code assigns the default values of the target columns to the third
and fifth parameters in an INSERT statement. The numbers to the right of selected
statements correspond to the previously described steps.
import java.sql.*;
import com.ibm.db2.jcc.*;
Connection conn;
...
PreparedStatement p = conn.prepareStatement(
1
"INSERT INTO DEPARTMENT " +
"(DEPTNO, DEPTNAME, MGRNO, ADMRDEPT, LOCATION) " +
"VALUES (?,?,?,?,?)");
p.setString(1, "X00");
p.setString(2, "FACILITIES");
p.setString(4, "A00");
((com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2PreparedStatement)p).setDBDefault(3);
2,3
((com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2PreparedStatement)p).setDBDefault(5);
int uCount = p.executeUpdate();
4
...
p.close();
// Close PreparedStatement
The following code uses the PreparedStatement.setObject method and
DB2PreparedStatement constants to perform the same function as in the previous
example. The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the
previously described steps.
import java.sql.*;
import com.ibm.db2.jcc.*;
Connection conn;
...
PreparedStatement p = conn.prepareStatement(
1
"INSERT INTO DEPARTMENT " +
"(DEPTNO, DEPTNAME, MGRNO, ADMRDEPT, LOCATION) " +
"VALUES (?,?,?,?,?)");
p.setString(1, "X00");
p.setString(2, "FACILITIES");
p.setString(4, "A00");
p.setObject(3, DB2PreparedStatement.DB_PARAMETER_DEFAULT);
3
p.setObject(5, DB2PreparedStatement.DB_PARAMETER_DEFAULT);
int uCount = p.executeUpdate();
4
...
p.close();
// Close PreparedStatement
In these examples, use of the method DB2PreparedStatement.setDBDefault or the
constant DB2PreparedStatement.DB_PARAMETER_DEFAULT simplifies programming of
the INSERT operation. If DB2PreparedStatement.setDBDefault or
DB2PreparedStatement.DB_PARAMETER_DEFAULT is not used, up to 32 different
PreparedStatement objects are necessary to cover all combinations of default and
non-default input values.
Using DB2ResultSet methods or DB2PreparedStatement
constants to provide extended parameter information
Use DB2ResultSet methods or ResultSet methods with DB2PreparedStatement
constants to assign default values to target columns in a DB2ResultSet.
96
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
About this task
Follow these steps to update a ResultSet with extended client information.
Procedure
1. Create a PreparedStatement object.
The SQL statement is a SELECT statement.
2. Invoke PreparedStatement.setXXX methods to pass values to any input
parameters.
3. Invoke the PreparedStatement.executeQuery method to obtain the result table
from the SELECT statement in a ResultSet object.
4. Position the cursor to the row that you want to update or insert.
5. Update columns in the ResultSet row.
v If you are not using updateObject to update a value:
– To assign the default value to the target column of the ResultSet, cast the
ResultSet to a DB2ResultSet, and call DB2ResultSet.updateDBDefault.
v If you are using updateObject to assign the value:
– To assign the default value to the target column of the ResultSet, call
ResultSet.updateObject with
DB2PreparedStatement.DB_PARAMETER_DEFAULT as the assigned value.
6. Execute ResultSet.updateRow if you are updating an existing row, or
ResultSet.insertRow if you are inserting a new row.
Example
The following code inserts a row into a ResultSet with the default value in the
second column, and does not modify the value in the first column. The numbers to
the right of selected statements correspond to the previously described steps.
import java.sql.*;
import com.ibm.db2.jcc.*;
Connection conn;
...
PreparedStatement p = conn.prepareStatement (
1
"SELECT MGRNO, LOCATION " +
"FROM DEPARTMENT");
ResultSet rs = p.executeQuery ();
3
rs.next ();
rs.moveToInsertRow();
4
((DB2ResultSet)rs).updateDBDefault (2);
5
rs.insertRow();
6
...
rs.close();
// Close ResultSet
p.close();
// Close PreparedStatement
The following code uses the ResultSet interface with DB2PreparedStatement
constants to perform the same function as in the previous example. The numbers
to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously described steps.
import java.sql.*;
import com.ibm.db2.jcc.*;
Connection conn;
...
PreparedStatement p = conn.prepareStatement (

XML data in JDBC applications
In JDBC applications, you can store data in XML columns and retrieve data from
XML columns.
In database tables, the XML built-in data type is used to store XML data in a
column as a structured set of nodes in a tree format.
JDBC applications can send XML data to the data server or retrieve XML data from
the data server in one of the following forms:
v As textual XML data
v As binary XML data, if the data server supports it
In JDBC applications, you can:
v Store an entire XML document in an XML column using setXXX methods.
v Retrieve an entire XML document from an XML column using getXXX methods.
v Retrieve a sequence from a document in an XML column by using the SQL
XMLQUERY function to retrieve the sequence into a serialized sequence in the
database, and then using getXXX methods to retrieve the data into an application
variable.
v Retrieve a sequence from a document in an XML column as a user-defined table
by using the SQL XMLTABLE function to define the result table and retrieve it.
Then use getXXX methods to retrieve the data from the result table into
application variables.
JDBC 4.0 java.sql.SQLXML objects can be used to retrieve and update data in XML
columns. Invocations of metadata methods, such as
ResultSetMetaData.getColumnTypeName return the integer value
java.sql.Types.SQLXML for an XML column type.

XML column updates in JDBC applications
In a JDBC application, you can update or insert data into XML columns of a table
at a DB2 data server using XML textual data. You can update or insert data into
XML columns of a table using binary XML data (data that is in the Extensible
Dynamic Binary XML DB2 Client/Server Binary XML Format), if the data server
supports binary XML data.
The following table lists the methods and corresponding input data types that you
can use to put data in XML columns.

Note:
1. This method requires JDBC 4.0 or later.
The encoding of XML data can be derived from the data itself, which is known as
internally encoded data, or from external sources, which is known as externally
encoded data. XML data that is sent to the database server as binary data is treated
as internally encoded data. XML data that is sent to the data source as character
data is treated as externally encoded data.
External encoding for Java applications is always Unicode encoding.
Externally encoded data can have internal encoding. That is, the data might be sent
to the data source as character data, but the data contains encoding information.
The data source handles incompatibilities between internal and external encoding
as follows:
v If the data source is DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, the database source
generates an error if the external and internal encoding are incompatible, unless
the external and internal encoding are Unicode. If the external and internal
encoding are Unicode, the database source ignores the internal encoding.
v If the database source is DB2 for z/OS, the database source ignores the internal
encoding.
Character data in XML columns is stored in UTF-8 encoding. The database source
handles conversion of the data from its internal or external encoding to UTF-8.
Example: The following example demonstrates inserting data from an SQLXML
object into an XML column. The data is String data, so the database source treats
the data as externally encoded.
public void insertSQLXML()
{
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(url);
SQLXML info = con.createSQLXML();
// Create an SQLXML object
PreparedStatement insertStmt = null;
String infoData =
"<customerinfo xmlns=""http://posample.org"" " +
"Cid=""1000"">...</customerinfo>";
info.setString(infoData);
// Populate the SQLXML object
int cid = 1000;
try {
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
99
sqls = "INSERT INTO CUSTOMER (CID, INFO) VALUES (?, ?)";
insertStmt = con.prepareStatement(sqls);
insertStmt.setInt(1, cid);
insertStmt.setSQLXML(2, info);
// Assign the SQLXML object value
// to an input parameter
if (insertStmt.executeUpdate() != 1) {
System.out.println("insertSQLXML: No record inserted.");
}
}
catch (IOException ioe) {
ioe.printStackTrace();
}
catch (SQLException sqle) {
System.out.println("insertSQLXML: SQL Exception: " +
sqle.getMessage());
System.out.println("insertSQLXML: SQL State: " +
sqle.getSQLState());
System.out.println("insertSQLXML: SQL Error Code: " +
sqle.getErrorCode());
}
}
Example: The following example demonstrates inserting data from a file into an
XML column. The data is inserted as binary data, so the database server honors the
internal encoding.
public void insertBinStream(Connection conn)
{
PreparedStatement insertStmt = null;
String sqls = null;
int cid = 0;
Statement stmt=null;
try {
sqls = "INSERT INTO CUSTOMER (CID, INFO) VALUES (?, ?)";
insertStmt = conn.prepareStatement(sqls);
insertStmt.setInt(1, cid);
File file = new File(fn);
insertStmt.setBinaryStream(2,
new FileInputStream(file), (int)file.length());
if (insertStmt.executeUpdate() != 1) {
System.out.println("insertBinStream: No record inserted.");
}
}
catch (IOException ioe) {
ioe.printStackTrace();
}
catch (SQLException sqle) {
System.out.println("insertBinStream: SQL Exception: " +
sqle.getMessage());
System.out.println("insertBinStream: SQL State: " +
sqle.getSQLState());
System.out.println("insertBinStream: SQL Error Code: " +
sqle.getErrorCode());
}
}
Example: The following example demonstrates inserting binary XML data from a
file into an XML column.
...
SQLXML info = conn.createSQLXML();
OutputStream os = info.setBinaryStream ();
FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream("c7.xml");
int read;
100
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
while ((read = fis.read ()) != -1) {
os.write (read);
}
PreparedStatement insertStmt = null;

XML data retrieval in JDBC applications
In JDBC applications, you use ResultSet.getXXX or ResultSet.getObject methods
to retrieve data from XML columns.
In a JDBC application, you can retrieve data from XML columns in a DB2 table as
XML textual data. You can retrieve data from XML columns in a table as binary
XML data (data that is in the Extensible Dynamic Binary XML DB2 Client/Server
Binary XML Format), if the data server supports binary XML data.
You can use one of the following techniques to retrieve XML data:
v Use the ResultSet.getSQLXML method to retrieve the data. Then use a
SQLXML.getXXX method to retrieve the data into a compatible output data type.
This technique requires JDBC 4.0 or later.
For example, you can retrieve data by using the SQLXML.getBinaryStream
method or the SQLXML.getSource method.
v Use a ResultSet.getXXX method other than ResultSet.getObject to retrieve the
data into a compatible data type.
v Use the ResultSet.getObject method to retrieve the data, and then cast it to the
DB2Xml type and assign it to a DB2Xml object. Then use a DB2Xml.getDB2XXX or
DB2Xml.getDB2XmlXXX method to retrieve the data into a compatible output data
type.
You need to use this technique if you are not using a version of the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ that supports JDBC 4.0.
The following table lists the ResultSet methods and corresponding output data
types for retrieving XML data.

Note:
1. The class that is returned is specified by the invoker of getSource, but the class must extend
javax.xml.transform.Source.
If the application executes the XMLSERIALIZE function on the data that is to be
returned, after execution of the function, the data has the data type that is specified
in the XMLSERIALIZE function, not the XML data type. Therefore, the driver
handles the data as the specified type and ignores any internal encoding
declarations.
Example: The following example demonstrates retrieving data from an XML
column into an SQLXML object, and then using the SQLXML.getString method to
retrieve the data into a string.

Invocation of routines with XML parameters in Java
applications
Java applications can call stored procedures at DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows
or DB2 for z/OS data sources that have XML parameters.
For native SQL procedures, XML parameters in the stored procedure definition
have the XML type. For external stored procedures and user-defined functions on
DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows data sources, XML parameters in the routine
definition have the XML AS CLOB type. When you call a stored procedure or
user-defined function that has XML parameters, you need to use a compatible data
type in the invoking statement.
To call a routine with XML input parameters from a JDBC program, use
parameters of the java.sql.SQLXML or com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml type. To register
XML output parameters, register the parameters as the java.sql.Types.SQLXML or
104
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Types.XML type. (The com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml and
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Types.XML types are deprecated.)
Example: JDBC program that calls a stored procedure that takes three XML
parameters: an IN parameter, an OUT parameter, and an INOUT parameter. This
example requires JDBC 4.0 or later.
java.sql.SQLXML in_xml = xmlvar;
java.sql.SQLXML out_xml = null;
java.sql.SQLXML inout_xml = xmlvar;
// Declare an input, output, and
// INOUT XML parameter
Connection con;
CallableStatement cstmt;
ResultSet rs;
...
cstmt = con.prepareCall("CALL SP_xml(?,?,?)");
// Create a CallableStatement object
cstmt.setObject (1, in_xml);
// Set input parameter
cstmt.setObject (3, inout_xml);
// Set inout parameter
cstmt.registerOutParameter (2, java.sql.Types.SQLXML);
// Register out and input parameters
cstmt.registerOutParameter (3, java.sql.Types.SQLXML);
cstmt.executeUpdate();
// Call the stored procedure
out_xml = cstmt.getSQLXML(2);
// Get the OUT parameter value
inout_xml = cstmt.getSQLXML(3);
// Get the INOUT parameter value
System.out.println("Parameter values from SP_xml call: ");
System.out.println("Output parameter value ");
MyUtilities.printString(out_xml.getString());
// Use the SQLXML.getString
// method to convert the out_xml
// value to a string for printing.
// Call a user-defined method called
// printString (not shown) to print
// the value.
System.out.println("INOUT parameter value ");
MyUtilities.printString(inout_xml.getString());
// Use the SQLXML.getString
// method to convert the inout_xml
// value to a string for printing.
// Call a user-defined method called
// printString (not shown) to print
// the value.
To call a routine with XML parameters from an SQLJ program, use parameters of
the java.sql.SQLXML or com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml type.
Example: SQLJ program that calls a stored procedure that takes three XML
parameters: an IN parameter, an OUT parameter, and an INOUT parameter. This
example requires JDBC 4.0 or later.
java.sql.SQLXML in_xml = xmlvar;
java.sql.SQLXML out_xml = null;

// Call the stored procedure
System.out.println("Parameter values from SP_xml call: ");
System.out.println("Output parameter value ");
MyUtilities.printString(out_xml.getString());
// Use the SQLXML.getString
// method toconvert the out_xml value

Binary XML format in Java applications
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ can send XML data to the data
server or retrieve XML data from the data server as binary XML data (data that is
in the Extensible Dynamic Binary XML DB2 Client/Server Binary XML Format).
The data server must provide support for binary XML data.
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ presents binary XML data to the
application only through XML object interfaces. The user does not see the data in
the binary XML format.
The format of XML data is transparent to the application. Storage and retrieval of
binary XML data requires version 4.9 or later of the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ. If you are using binary XML data in SQLJ applications, you also
need version 4.9 or later of the sqlj4.zip package.
You use the property xmlFormat to control whether the data format for retrieval of
XML data is textual XML format or binary XML format. You set xmlFormat to
XML_FORMAT_BINARY (1) to enable binary XML format. The default is textual
XML format.
For update of data in XML table columns, xmlFormat has no effect. If the input
data is binary XML data, and the data server does not support binary XML data,
the input data is converted to textual XML data. Otherwise, no conversion occurs.
When binary XML data is used, the XML data that is passed to the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ cannot refer to external entities, internal entities,
or internal DTDs. External DTDs are supported only if those DTDs were
previously registered in the data source.
There is no setXXX method defined on the Connection interface for the xmlFormat
property. Therefore, to set the xmlFormat value when you use the Connection
interface, you need to specify xmlFormat as a property when you execute the
DriverManager.getConnection method. For example:
properties.put("xmlFormat", "1");
DriverManager.getConnection(url, properties);
Restriction: When you send XML data in binary format to a DB2 for z/OS data
server that supports binary XML data, you cannot use an InputStreamReader object
with a Charset object named UTF-16LE, UTF-8, or UTF-16BE for an XML
document file that contains a byte order mark (BOM). To circumvent this
restriction, take one of the following actions:
v Remove the BOM from the XML instance document in the input file.
v Use an InputStreamReader object with a Charset object named UTF-16 for the
input file.
106
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
v Use an InputStream object instead of an InputStreamReader object for the input
file.
Binary XML format is most efficient for cases in which the input or output data is
in a non-textual representation, such as SAX, StAX, or DOM. For example, these
methods retrieve XML data in non-textual representations:
v getSource(SAXSource.class)
v getSource(StAXSource.class)
v getSource(DOMSource.class)
These methods update XML columns with data in non-textual representations:
v setResult(SAXResult.class)
v setResult(StAXResult.class)
v setResult(DOMResult.class)
The SAX representation is the most efficient way to retrieve data that is in the
binary XML format because the data does not undergo extra conversions from
binary format to textual format.
Suppose that you set xmlFormat to XML_FORMAT_BINARY (1). In the following
JDBC example, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ retrieves data in
the binary XML format, application uses the SAX parser to parse the retrieved
data.
...
Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT XMLCOL FROM XMLTABLE");
ContentHandler handler = new MyContentHandler();
while (rs.next()) {
SQLXML sqlxml = rs.getSQLXML(1);
SAXSource source = sqlxml.getSource(SAXSource.class);
XMLReader reader = source.getXMLReader();
reader.setContentHandler(handler);
reader.parse(source.getInputSource());
}
...
The following SQLJ example performs the same actions.
#sql iterator SqlXmlIter(java.sql.SQLXML);
{
...
SqlXmlIter SQLXMLiter = null;
java.sql.SQLXML outSqlXml = null;
ContentHandler handler = new MyContentHandler();
#sql [ctx] SQLXmlIter = {SELECT XMLCOL FROM XMLTABLE};
#sql {FETCH :SqlXmlIter INTO :outSqlXml};
while (!SQLXMLIter.endFetch()) {
SAXSource source = outSqlXml.getSource(SAXSource.class);
XMLReader reader = source.getXMLReader();
reader.setContentHandler(handler);
reader.parse(source.getInputSource());
#sql {FETCH :SqlXmlIter INTO :outSqlXml};
}
...
}
Java support for XML schema registration and removal
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ provides methods that let you
write Java application programs to register and remove XML schemas and their
components.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
107
The methods are:
DB2Connection.registerDB2XMLSchema
Registers an XML schema in DB2, using one or more XML schema documents.
There are two forms of this method: one form for XML schema documents that
are input from InputStream objects, and one form for XML schema documents
that are in a String.
DB2Connection.deregisterDB2XMLObject
Removes an XML schema definition from DB2.
DB2Connection.updateDB2XmlSchema
Replaces the XML schema documents in a registered XML schema with the
XML schema documents from another registered XML schema. Optionally
drops the XML schema whose contents are copied. This method is available
only for connections to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows.
Before you can invoke these methods, the stored procedures that support these
methods must be installed on the DB2 database server.
Example: Registration of an XML schema: The following example demonstrates the
use of registerDB2XmlSchema to register an XML schema in DB2 using a single
XML schema document (customer.xsd) that is read from an input stream. The SQL
schema name for the registered schema is SYSXSR. The xmlSchemaLocations value is
null, so DB2 will not find this XML schema on an invocation of
DSN_XMLVALIDATE that supplies a non-null XML schema location value. No
additional properties are registered.
public static void registerSchema(
Connection con,
String schemaName)
throws SQLException {
// Define the registerDB2XmlSchema parameters
String[] xmlSchemaNameQualifiers = new String[1];
String[] xmlSchemaNames = new String[1];
String[] xmlSchemaLocations = new String[1];
InputStream[] xmlSchemaDocuments = new InputStream[1];
int[] xmlSchemaDocumentsLengths = new int[1];
java.io.InputStream[] xmlSchemaDocumentsProperties = new InputStream[1];
int[] xmlSchemaDocumentsPropertiesLengths = new int[1];
InputStream xmlSchemaProperties;
int xmlSchemaPropertiesLength;
//Set the parameter values
xmlSchemaLocations[0] = "";
FileInputStream fi = null;
xmlSchemaNameQualifiers[0] = "SYSXSR";
xmlSchemaNames[0] = schemaName;
try {
fi = new FileInputStream("customer.xsd");
xmlSchemaDocuments[0] = new BufferedInputStream(fi);
} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
try {
xmlSchemaDocumentsLengths[0] = (int) fi.getChannel().size();
System.out.println(xmlSchemaDocumentsLengths[0]);
} catch (IOException e1) {
e1.printStackTrace();
}
xmlSchemaDocumentsProperties[0] = null;
xmlSchemaDocumentsPropertiesLengths[0] = 0;
xmlSchemaProperties = null;
xmlSchemaPropertiesLength = 0;
DB2Connection ds = (DB2Connection) con;
108
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
// Invoke registerDB2XmlSchema
ds.registerDB2XmlSchema(
xmlSchemaNameQualifiers,
xmlSchemaNames,
xmlSchemaLocations,
xmlSchemaDocuments,
xmlSchemaDocumentsLengths,
xmlSchemaDocumentsProperties,
xmlSchemaDocumentsPropertiesLengths,
xmlSchemaProperties,
xmlSchemaPropertiesLength,
false);
}
Example: Removal of an XML schema: The following example demonstrates the use of
deregisterDB2XmlObject to remove an XML schema from DB2. The SQL schema
name for the registered schema is SYSXSR.
public static void deregisterSchema(
Connection con,
String schemaName)
throws SQLException {
// Define and assign values to the deregisterDB2XmlObject parameters
String xmlSchemaNameQualifier = "SYSXSR";
String xmlSchemaName = schemaName;
DB2Connection ds = (DB2Connection) con;
// Invoke deregisterDB2XmlObject
ds.deregisterDB2XmlObject(
xmlSchemaNameQualifier,
xmlSchemaName);
}
Example: Update of an XML schema: The following example applies only to
connections to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. It demonstrates the use of
updateDB2XmlSchema to update the contents of an XML schema with the contents
of another XML schema. The schema that is copied is kept in the repository. The
SQL schema name for both registered schemas is SYSXSR.
public static void updateSchema(
Connection con,
String schemaNameTarget,
String schemaNameSource)
throws SQLException {
// Define and assign values to the updateDB2XmlSchema parameters
String xmlSchemaNameQualifierTarget = "SYSXSR";
String xmlSchemaNameQualifierSource = "SYSXSR";
String xmlSchemaNameTarget = schemaNameTarget;
String xmlSchemaNameSource = schemaNameSource;
boolean dropSourceSchema = false;
DB2Connection ds = (DB2Connection) con;
// Invoke updateDB2XmlSchema
ds.updateDB2XmlSchema(
xmlSchemaNameQualifierTarget,
xmlSchemaNameTarget,
xmlSchemaNameQualifierSource,
xmlSchemaNameSource,
dropSourceSchema);
}

Inserting data from file reference variables into tables in JDBC
applications
You can use file reference variable objects with IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS Version 9 or later to stream LOB or
XML input data.
Before you begin
You need to store your LOB or XML input data in HFS files.
About this task
Use of file reference variables eliminates the need to materialize the LOB or XML
data in memory before the data is stored in tables.
Procedure
To use file reference variables to store LOB or XML data in tables, follow these
steps:
1. Invoke the Connection.prepareStatement method to create a PreparedStatement
object from an INSERT statement.
The parameter markers in the INSERT statement represent XML or LOB values.
2. Execute constructors for file reference variable objects of the appropriate types.
The following table lists the types of data in the input files and the appropriate
constructors.
Input data type
Constructor
BLOB
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BlobFileReference
CLOB
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2ClobFileReference
XML AS BLOB
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2XmlAsBlobFileReference
XML AS CLOB
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2XmlAsClobFileReference
The first parameter in each constructor must specify the absolute path name for
an existing HFS file.
3. If you are performing single-row INSERT operations, repeat these steps for
each row that you want to insert:
a. Invoke DB2PreparedStatement.setXXX to pass values to the input variables.
Alternatively, you can use PreparedStatement.setObject methods.
The following table lists the types of data in the input files and the
appropriate DB2PreparedStatement.setXXX methods to use for each data
type.
Input data type
DB2PreparedStatement.setXXX method
BLOB
setDB2BlobFileReference
CLOB
setDB2ClobFileReference
XML AS BLOB
setDB2XmlAsBlobFileReference
XML AS CLOB
setDB2XmlAsClobFileReference
If you use DB2PreparedStatement methods, you need to cast the
PreparedStatement object that you created in step 1 to a
110
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
DB2PreparedStatement object when you execute a
DB2PreparedStatement.setXXX method.
You can assign NULL values to input parameters in any of the following
ways:
v Using DB2PreparedStatement.setXXX methods, with null as the fileRef
parameter value.
v Using PreparedStatement.setObject, with null as the x (second)
parameter value and the appropriate value from
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Types for the targetJdbcType (third) parameter value.
v Using PreparedStatement.setNull, with the appropriate value from
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Types for the JdbcType (second) parameter value.
b. Invoke the PreparedStatement.execute or
PreparedStatement.executeUpdate method to update the table with the
variable values.
4. If you are performing multi-row INSERT operations, execute these steps:
a. Repeat these steps for every row that you want to insert:
1) Invoke DB2PreparedStatement.setXXX to pass values to the input
variables. Alternatively, you can use PreparedStatement.setObject
methods.
2) Invoke the PreparedStatement.addBatch method after you set the values
for a row of the table.
b. Invoke the PreparedStatement.executeBatch method to update the table
with the variable values.
5. Invoke the PreparedStatement.close method to close the PreparedStatement
object when you have finished using that object.
Examples
The following code inserts a single row into a table. The code inserts values from
CLOB and BLOB file reference variables into CLOB and BLOB columns and a
NULL value into an XML column. The numbers to the right of selected statements
correspond to the previously-described steps.
Connection conn;
...
PreparedStatement pstmt =
conn.prepareStatement(
"INSERT INTO TEST02TB(RECID,CLOBCOL,BLOBCOL,XMLCOL) VALUES(’003’,?,?,?)");
// Create a PreparedStatement object

com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2XmlAsBlobFileReference xmlAsBlobFileRef =
new com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2XmlAsBlobFileReference(
"/u/usrt001/jcc/test/XML.FILE");
// Execute constructors for the file reference
2
// variable objects
((com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2PreparedStatement)pstmt).setDB2ClobFileReference(1,clobFileRef);
((com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2PreparedStatement)pstmt).setDB2BlobFileReference(2,blobFileRef);
pstmt.setNull(3,com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Types.XML_AS_BLOB_FILE);
// Assign values to the CLOB and BLOB parameters.3a
// Assign a null value to the XML parameter.
int numUpd = pstmt.executeUpdate();
// Perform the update
3b
pstmt.close();
// Close the PreparedStatement object

Transaction control in JDBC applications
In JDBC applications, as in other types of SQL applications, transaction control
involves explicitly or implicitly committing and rolling back transactions, and
setting the isolation level for transactions.
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ isolation levels
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports a number of isolation
levels, which correspond to database server isolation levels.
JDBC isolation levels can be set for a unit of work within a JDBC program, using
the Connection.setTransactionIsolation method. The default isolation level can
be set with the defaultIsolationLevel property.
The following table shows the values of level that you can specify in the
Connection.setTransactionIsolation method and their DB2 database server
equivalents.

Committing or rolling back JDBC transactions
In JDBC, to commit or roll back transactions explicitly, use the commit or rollback
methods.
About this task
For example:
Connection con;
...
con.commit();
If autocommit mode is on, the database manager performs a commit operation
after every SQL statement completes. To set autocommit mode on, invoke the
Connection.setAutoCommit(true) method. To set autocommit mode off, invoke the
Connection.setAutoCommit(false) method. To determine whether autocommit
mode is on, invoke the Connection.getAutoCommit method.
Connections that participate in distributed transactions cannot invoke the
setAutoCommit(true) method.
When you change the autocommit state, the database manager executes a commit
operation, if the application is not already on a transaction boundary.
While a connection is participating in a distributed or global transaction, the
associated application cannot issue the commit or rollback methods.
While a connection is participating in a global transaction, the associated
application cannot invoke the setAutoCommit(true) method.

application connects.

Exceptions and warnings under the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ
In JDBC applications, SQL errors throw exceptions, which you handle using
try/catch blocks. SQL warnings do not throw exceptions, so you need to invoke
methods to check whether warnings occurred after you execute SQL statements.
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ provides the following classes and
interfaces, which provide information about errors and warnings.
SQLException
The SQLException class for handling errors. All JDBC methods throw an instance of
SQLException when an error occurs during their execution. According to the JDBC
specification, an SQLException object contains the following information:
v An int value that contains an error code. SQLException.getErrorCode retrieves
this value.
v A String object that contains the SQLSTATE, or null. SQLException.getSQLState
retrieves this value.
v A String object that contains a description of the error, or null.
SQLException.getMessage retrieves this value.
v A pointer to the next SQLException, or null. SQLException.getNextException
retrieves this value.
When a JDBC method throws a single SQLException, that SQLException might be
caused by an underlying Java exception that occurred when the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ processed the method. In this case, the SQLException
wraps the underlying exception, and you can use the SQLException.getCause
method to retrieve information about the error.
DB2Diagnosable
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ-only interface
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Diagnosable extends the SQLException class. The
DB2Diagnosable interface gives you more information about errors that occur when
114
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
the data source is accessed. If the JDBC driver detects an error, DB2Diagnosable
gives you the same information as the standard SQLException class. However, if
the database server detects the error, DB2Diagnosable adds the following methods,
which give you additional information about the error:
getSqlca
Returns an DB2Sqlca object with the following information:
v An SQL error code
v The SQLERRMC values
v The SQLERRP value
v The SQLERRD values
v The SQLWARN values
v The SQLSTATE
getThrowable
Returns a java.lang.Throwable object that caused the SQLException, or null, if
no such object exists.
printTrace
Prints diagnostic information.
SQLException subclasses
If you are using JDBC 4.0 or later, you can obtain more specific information than
an SQLException provides by catching the following exception classes:
v SQLNonTransientException
An SQLNonTransientException is thrown when an SQL operation that failed
previously cannot succeed when the operation is retried, unless some corrective
action is taken. The SQLNonTransientException class has these subclasses:
– SQLFeatureNotSupportedException
– SQLNonTransientConnectionException
– SQLDataException
– SQLIntegrityConstraintViolationException
– SQLInvalidAuthorizationSpecException
– SQLSyntaxException
v SQLTransientException
An SQLTransientException is thrown when an SQL operation that failed
previously might succeed when the operation is retried, without intervention
from the application. A connection is still valid after an SQLTransientException
is thrown. The SQLTransientException class has these subclasses:
– SQLTransientConnectionException
– SQLTransientRollbackException
– SQLTimeoutException
v SQLRecoverableException
An SQLRecoverableException is thrown when an operation that failed previously
might succeed if the application performs some recovery steps, and retries the
transaction. A connection is no longer valid after an SQLRecoverableException is
thrown.
v SQLClientInfoException
A SQLClientInfoException is thrown by the Connection.setClientInfo method
when one or more client properties cannot be set. The SQLClientInfoException
indicates which properties cannot be set.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
115
BatchUpdateException
A BatchUpdateException object contains the following items about an error that
occurs during execution of a batch of SQL statements:
v A String object that contains a description of the error, or null.
v A String object that contains the SQLSTATE for the failing SQL statement, or
null
v An integer value that contains the error code, or zero
v An integer array of update counts for SQL statements in the batch, or null
v A pointer to an SQLException object, or null
One BatchUpdateException is thrown for the entire batch. At least one
SQLException object is chained to the BatchUpdateException object. The
SQLException objects are chained in the same order as the corresponding
statements were added to the batch. To help you match SQLException objects to
statements in the batch, the error description field for each SQLException object
begins with this string:
Error for batch element #n:
n is the number of the statement in the batch.
SQL warnings during batch execution do not throw BatchUpdateExceptions. To
obtain information about warnings, use the Statement.getWarnings method on the
object on which you ran the executeBatch method. You can then retrieve an error
description, SQLSTATE, and error code for each SQLWarning object.
SQLWarning
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ accumulates warnings when SQL
statements return positive SQLCODEs, and when SQL statements return 0
SQLCODEs with non-zero SQLSTATEs.
Calling getWarnings retrieves an SQLWarning object.
Important: When a call to Statement.executeUpdate or
PreparedStatement.executeUpdate affects no rows, the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ generates an SQLWarning with error code +100.
When a call to ResultSet.next returns no rows, the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ does not generate an SQLWarning.
A generic SQLWarning object contains the following information:
v A String object that contains a description of the warning, or null
v A String object that contains the SQLSTATE, or null
v An int value that contains an error code
v A pointer to the next SQLWarning, or null
Under the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, like an SQLException object,
an SQLWarning object can also contain DB2-specific information. The DB2-specific
information for an SQLWarning object is the same as the DB2-specific information
for an SQLException object.
116
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Handling an SQLException under the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ
As in all Java programs, error handling for JDBC applications is done using
try/catch blocks. Methods throw exceptions when an error occurs, and the code in
the catch block handles those exceptions.
Procedure
The basic steps for handling an SQLException in a JDBC program that runs under
the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ are:
1. Give the program access to the com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Diagnosable interface and
the com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Sqlca class. You can fully qualify all references to
them, or you can import them:
import com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Diagnosable;
import com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Sqlca;
2. Optional: During a connection to a data server, set the
retrieveMessagesFromServerOnGetMessage property to true if you want full
message text from an SQLException.getMessage call.
3. Optional: During a IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity connection to a DB2 for z/OS data source, set the
extendedDiagnosticLevel property to EXTENDED_DIAG_MESSAGE_TEXT (241) if you
want extended diagnostic information similar to the information that is
provided by the SQL GET DIAGNOSTICS statement from an
SQLException.getMessage call.
4. Put code that can generate an SQLException in a try block.
5. In the catch block, perform the following steps in a loop:
a. Test whether you have retrieved the last SQLException. If not, continue to
the next step.
b. Optional: For an SQL statement that executes on an IBM Informix data
source, execute the
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Statement.getIDSSQLStatementOffSet method to
determine which columns have syntax errors.
DB2Statement.getIDSSQLStatementOffSet returns the offset into the SQL
statement of the first syntax error.
c. Optional: For an SQL statement that executes on an IBM Informix data
source, execute the SQLException.getCause method to retrieve any ISAM
error messages.
1) If the Throwable that is returned by SQLException.getCause is not null,
perform one of the following sets of steps:
v Issue SQLException.printStackTrace to print an error message that
includes the ISAM error message text. The ISAM error message text is
preceded by the string "Caused by:".
v Retrieve the error code and message text for the ISAM message:
a) Test whether the Throwable is an instance of an SQLException. If
so, retrieve the SQL error code from that SQLException.
b) Execute the Throwable.getMessage method to retrieve the text of
the ISAM message.
d. Check whether any IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ-only
information exists by testing whether the SQLException is an instance of
DB2Diagnosable. If so:
1) Cast the object to a DB2Diagnosable object.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
117
2) Optional: Invoke the DB2Diagnosable.printTrace method to write all
SQLException information to a java.io.PrintWriter object.
3) Invoke the DB2Diagnosable.getThrowable method to determine
whether an underlying java.lang.Throwable caused the SQLException.
4) Invoke the DB2Diagnosable.getSqlca method to retrieve the DB2Sqlca
object.
5) Invoke the DB2Sqlca.getSqlCode method to retrieve an SQL error code
value.
6) Invoke the DB2Sqlca.getSqlErrmc method to retrieve a string that
contains all SQLERRMC values, or invoke the
DB2Sqlca.getSqlErrmcTokens method to retrieve the SQLERRMC
values in an array.
7) Invoke the DB2Sqlca.getSqlErrp method to retrieve the SQLERRP
value.
8) Invoke the DB2Sqlca.getSqlErrd method to retrieve the SQLERRD
values in an array.
9) Invoke the DB2Sqlca.getSqlWarn method to retrieve the SQLWARN
values in an array.
10) Invoke the DB2Sqlca.getSqlState method to retrieve the SQLSTATE
value.
11) Invoke the DB2Sqlca.getMessage method to retrieve error message text
from the data source.
e. Invoke the SQLException.getNextException method to retrieve the next
SQLException.

Handling an SQLWarning under the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ
Unlike SQL errors, SQL warnings do not cause JDBC methods to throw exceptions.
Instead, the Connection, Statement, PreparedStatement, CallableStatement, and
ResultSet classes contain getWarnings methods, which you need to invoke after
you execute SQL statements to determine whether any SQL warnings were
generated.
Procedure
The basic steps for retrieving SQL warning information are:
1. Optional: During connection to the database server, set properties that affect
SQLWarning objects.
If you want full message text from a data server when you execute
SQLWarning.getMessage calls, set the retrieveMessagesFromServerOnGetMessage
property to true.
If you are using IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity
to a DB2 for z/OS data source, and you want extended diagnostic information
that is similar to the information that is provided by the SQL GET
DIAGNOSTICS statement when you execute SQLWarning.getMessage calls, set
the extendedDiagnosticLevel property to EXTENDED_DIAG_MESSAGE_TEXT (241).
2. Immediately after invoking a method that connects to a database server or
executes an SQL statement, invoke the getWarnings method to retrieve an
SQLWarning object.
3. Perform the following steps in a loop:
a. Test whether the SQLWarning object is null. If not, continue to the next step.
b. Invoke the SQLWarning.getMessage method to retrieve the warning
description.
c. Invoke the SQLWarning.getSQLState method to retrieve the SQLSTATE
value.
d. Invoke the SQLWarning.getErrorCode method to retrieve the error code
value.
e. If you want DB2-specific warning information, perform the same steps that
you perform to get DB2-specific information for an SQLException.
f. Invoke the SQLWarning.getNextWarning method to retrieve the next
SQLWarning.

Retrieving information from a BatchUpdateException
When an error occurs during execution of a statement in a batch, processing
continues. However, executeBatch throws a BatchUpdateException.
Procedure
To retrieve information from the BatchUpdateException, follow these steps:
1. Use the BatchUpdateException.getUpdateCounts method to determine the
number of rows that each SQL statement in the batch updated before the
exception was thrown.
getUpdateCount returns an array with an element for each statement in the
batch. An element has one of the following values:
n
The number of rows that the statement updated.
Statement.SUCCESS_NO_INFO
This value is returned if the number of updated rows cannot be
determined. The number of updated rows cannot be determined if the
following conditions are true:
v The application is connected to a subsystem that is in DB2 for z/OS
Version 8 new-function mode, or later.
v The application is using Version 3.1 or later of the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ.
v The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses multi-row
INSERT operations to execute batch updates.
Chapter 3. JDBC application programming
121
Statement.EXECUTE_FAILED
This value is returned if the statement did not execute successfully.
2. If the batched statement can return automatically generated keys:
a. Cast the BatchUpdateException to a
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBBatchUpdateException.
b. Call the DBBatchUpdateException.getDBGeneratedKeys method to retrieve an
array of ResultSet objects that contains the automatically generated keys for
each execution of the batched SQL statement.
c. Test whether each ResultSet in the array is null.
Each ResultSet contains:
v If the ResultSet is not null, it contains the automatically generated keys
for an execution of the batched SQL statement.
v If the ResultSet is null, execution of the batched statement failed.
3. Use SQLException methods getMessage, getSQLState, and getErrorCode to
retrieve the description of the error, the SQLSTATE, and the error code for the
first error.
4. Use the BatchUpdateException.getNextException method to get a chained
SQLException.
5. In a loop, execute the getMessage, getSQLState, getErrorCode, and
getNextException method calls to obtain information about an SQLException
and get the next SQLException.
Example
The following code fragment demonstrates how to obtain the fields of a
BatchUpdateException and the chained SQLException objects for a batched
statement that returns automatically generated keys. The example assumes that
there is only one column in the automatically generated key, and that there is
always exactly one key value, whose data type is numeric. The numbers to the
right of selected statements correspond to the previously-described steps.
try {
// Batch updates
} catch(BatchUpdateException buex) {
System.err.println("Contents of BatchUpdateException:");
System.err.println(" Update counts: ");
int [] updateCounts = buex.getUpdateCounts();
1
for (int i = 0; i < updateCounts.length; i++) {
System.err.println(" Statement " + i + ":" + updateCounts[i]);
}
ResultSet[] resultList =
((DBBatchUpdateException)buex).getDBGeneratedKeys();
2
for (i = 0; i < resultList.length; i++)
{
if (resultList[i] == null)
continue; // Skip the ResultSet for which there was a failure
else {
rs.next();
java.math.BigDecimal idColVar = rs.getBigDecimal(1);
// Get automatically generated key
// value
System.out.println("Automatically generated key value = " + idColVar);
}
}
System.err.println(" Message: " + buex.getMessage());
3
System.err.println(" SQLSTATE: " + buex.getSQLState());
System.err.println(" Error code: " + buex.getErrorCode());
SQLException ex = buex.getNextException();
4
while (ex != null) {
5
122
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
System.err.println("SQL exception:");
System.err.println(" Message: " + ex.getMessage());
System.err.println(" SQLSTATE: " + ex.getSQLState());
System.err.println(" Error code: " + ex.getErrorCode());
ex = ex.getNextException();
}

Memory use for IBM Data Server Driver for IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS
In general, applications that use IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity require more memory than applications that use IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity.
With IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity, an
application receives data from the DB2 database server in network packets, and
receives only the data that is contained in a particular row and column of a table.
Applications that run under IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity on DB2 for z/OS generally require more memory. IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity has a direct, native interface to DB2
for z/OS. For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity, the
driver must provide memory in which DB2 for z/OS writes data. Because the
amount of data that is needed can vary from row to row, and the driver has no
information about how much memory is needed for each row, the driver must
allocate the maximum amount of memory that any row might need. This value is
determined from DESCRIBE information on the SELECT statement that generates
the result table. For example, when an application that uses IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity selects a column that is defined as
VARCHAR(32000), the driver must allocate 32000 bytes for each row of the result
table.
The extra memory requirements can be particularly great for retrieval of LOB
columns, which can be defined with lengths of up to 2 GB, or for CAST
expressions that cast values to LOB types with large length attributes.
|
|
|
|
|
|
|
|
In general, even when you use a 64-bit JVM, all native connectivity to DB2 for
z/OS is below the bar, with 32-bit addressing limits. Although the maximum size
of any row is defined as approximately 2 GB, the practical maximum amount of
available memory for use by IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity is generally significantly less. However, if the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ can use limited block fetch to retrieve the data for a query or
for a stored procedure result set, the data can be passed to the driver using full
64-bit addressing.
Two ways to alleviate excess memory use for LOB retrieval and manipulation are
to use progressive streaming or LOB locators. You enable progressive streaming or
LOB locator use by setting the progressiveStreaming property or the
fullyMaterializeLobData property.

Disconnecting from data sources in JDBC applications
When you have finished with a connection to a data source, it is essential that you
close the connection to the data source. Doing this releases the Connection object's
database and JDBC resources immediately.
Procedure
To close the connection to the data source, use the close method.
For example:
Connection con;
...
con.close();
For a connection to a DB2 data source, if autocommit mode is not on, the
connection needs to be on a unit-of-work boundary before you close the
connection.
For a connection to an IBM Informix database, if the database supports logging,
and autocommit mode is not on, the connection needs to be on a unit-of-work
boundary before you close the connection.
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for
z/OS, when you close the connection to a data source, the driver issues an implicit
rollback to ensure consistency of the underlying RRSAF thread before thread
termination.

Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
Writing an SQLJ application has much in common with writing an SQL application
in any other language.
In general, you need to do the following things:
v Import the Java packages that contain SQLJ and JDBC methods.
v Declare variables for sending data to or retrieving data from DB2 tables.
v Connect to a data source.
v Execute SQL statements.
v Handle SQL errors and warnings.
v Disconnect from the data source.
Although the tasks that you need to perform are similar to those in other
languages, the way that you execute those tasks, and the order in which you
execute those tasks, is somewhat different.

Connecting to a data source using SQLJ
In an SQLJ application, as in any other DB2 application, you must be connected to
a data source before you can execute SQL statements.
About this task
You can use one of six techniques to connect to a data source in an SQLJ program.
Two use the JDBC DriverManager interface, two use the JDBC DataSource interface,
one uses a previously created connection context, and one uses the default
connection.
Related concepts:
“How JDBC applications connect to a data source” on page 13
SQLJ connection technique 1: JDBC DriverManager interface
SQLJ connection technique 1 uses the JDBC DriverManager interface as the
underlying means for creating the connection.
Procedure
To use SQLJ connection technique 1, follow these steps:
1. Execute an SQLJ connection declaration clause.
Doing this generates a connection context class. The simplest form of the
connection declaration clause is:
#sql context context-class-name;
The name of the generated connection context class is context-class-name.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
127
2. Load a JDBC driver by invoking the Class.forName method.
v Invoke Class.forName this way:
Class.forName("com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Driver");
This step is unnecessary if you use the JDBC 4.0 driver or later.
3. Invoke the constructor for the connection context class that you created in step
1 on page 127.
Doing this creates a connection context object that you specify in each SQL
statement that you execute at the associated data source. The constructor
invocation statement needs to be in one of the following forms:
connection-context-class connection-context-object=
new connection-context-class(String url, boolean autocommit);
connection-context-class connection-context-object=
new connection-context-class(String url, String user,
String password, boolean autocommit);
connection-context-class connection-context-object=
new connection-context-class(String url, Properties info,
boolean autocommit);
The meanings of the parameters are:
url
A string that specifies the location name that is associated with the data
source. That argument has one of the forms that are specified in "Connect
to a data source using the DriverManager interface with the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ". The form depends on which JDBC
driver you are using.
user and password
Specify a user ID and password for connection to the data source, if the
data source to which you are connecting requires them.
If the data source is a DB2 for z/OS system, and you do not specify these
parameters, DB2 uses the external security environment, such as the RACF
security environment, that was previously established for the user. For a
CICS connection, you cannot specify a user ID or password.
info
Specifies an object of type java.util.Properties that contains a set of
driver properties for the connection. For the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ, you can specify any of the properties listed in "Properties
for the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ".
autocommit
Specifies whether you want the database manager to issue a COMMIT after
every statement. Possible values are true or false. If you specify false,
you need to do explicit commit operations.
Example
The following code uses connection technique 1 to create a connection to location
NEWYORK. The connection requires a user ID and password, and does not require
autocommit. The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the
previously-described steps.

SQLJ connection technique 2: JDBC DriverManager interface
SQLJ connection technique 2 uses the JDBC DriverManager interface as the
underlying means for creating the connection.
Procedure
To use SQLJ connection technique 2, follow these steps:
1. Execute an SQLJ connection declaration clause.
Doing this generates a connection context class. The simplest form of the
connection declaration clause is:
#sql context context-class-name;
The name of the generated connection context class is context-class-name.
2. Load a JDBC driver by invoking the Class.forName method.
v Invoke Class.forName this way:
Class.forName("com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Driver");
This step is unnecessary if you use the JDBC 4.0 driver or later.
3. Invoke the JDBC DriverManager.getConnection method.
Doing this creates a JDBC connection object for the connection to the data
source. You can use any of the forms of getConnection that are specified in
"Connect to a data source using the DriverManager interface with the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ".
The meanings of the url, user, and password parameters are:
url
A string that specifies the location name that is associated with the data
source. That argument has one of the forms that are specified in "Connect
to a data source using the DriverManager interface with the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ". The form depends on which JDBC
driver you are using.
user and password
Specify a user ID and password for connection to the data source, if the
data source to which you are connecting requires them.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
129
If the data source is a DB2 for z/OS system, and you do not specify these
parameters, DB2 uses the external security environment, such as the RACF
security environment, that was previously established for the user. For a
CICS connection, you cannot specify a user ID or password.
4. Invoke the constructor for the connection context class that you created in step
1 on page 129
Doing this creates a connection context object that you specify in each SQL
statement that you execute at the associated data source. The constructor
invocation statement needs to be in the following form:
connection-context-class connection-context-object=
new connection-context-class(Connection JDBC-connection-object);
The JDBC-connection-object parameter is the Connection object that you created
in step 3 on page 129.
Example
The following code uses connection technique 2 to create a connection to location
NEWYORK. The connection requires a user ID and password, and does not require
autocommit. The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the
previously-described steps.
#sql context Ctx;
// Create connection context class Ctx

#sql [myConnCtx] {SELECT LASTNAME INTO :empname FROM EMPLOYEE
WHERE EMPNO=’000010’};
// Use myConnCtx for executing an SQL statement
Figure 24. Using connection technique 2 to connect to a data source
SQLJ connection technique 3: JDBC DataSource interface
SQLJ connection technique 3 uses the JDBC DataSource as the underlying means
for creating the connection.
Procedure
To use SQLJ connection technique 3, follow these steps:
1. Execute an SQLJ connection declaration clause.
Doing this generates a connection context class. The simplest form of the
connection declaration clause is:
#sql context context-class-name;
130
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
The name of the generated connection context class is context-class-name.
2. If your system administrator created a DataSource object in a different program,
follow these steps. Otherwise, create a DataSource object and assign properties
to it.
a. Obtain the logical name of the data source to which you need to connect.
b. Create a context to use in the next step.
c. In your application program, use the Java Naming and Directory Interface
(JNDI) to get the DataSource object that is associated with the logical data
source name.
3. Invoke the JDBC DataSource.getConnection method.
Doing this creates a JDBC connection object for the connection to the data
source. You can use one of the following forms of getConnection:
getConnection();
getConnection(user, password);
The meanings of the user and password parameters are:
user and password
Specify a user ID and password for connection to the data source, if the
data source to which you are connecting requires them.
If the data source is a DB2 for z/OS system, and you do not specify these
parameters, DB2 uses the external security environment, such as the RACF
security environment, that was previously established for the user. For a
CICS connection, you cannot specify a user ID or password.
4. If the default autocommit mode is not appropriate, invoke the JDBC
Connection.setAutoCommit method.
Doing this indicates whether you want the database manager to issue a
COMMIT after every statement. The form of this method is:
setAutoCommit(boolean autocommit);
For environments other than the environments for CICS, stored procedures, and
user-defined functions, the default autocommit mode for a JDBC connection is
true. To disable autocommit, invoke setAutoCommit(false).
5. Invoke the constructor for the connection context class that you created in step
1 on page 130.
Doing this creates a connection context object that you specify in each SQL
statement that you execute at the associated data source. The constructor
invocation statement needs to be in the following form:
connection-context-class connection-context-object=
new connection-context-class(Connection JDBC-connection-object);
The JDBC-connection-object parameter is the Connection object that you created
in step 3.
Example
The following code uses connection technique 3 to create a connection to a location
with logical name jdbc/sampledb. This example assumes that the system
administrator created and deployed a DataSource object that is available through
JNDI lookup. The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the
previously-described steps.

Figure 25. Using connection technique 3 to connect to a data source
SQLJ connection technique 4: JDBC DataSource interface
SQLJ connection technique 4 uses the JDBC DataSource as the underlying means
for creating the connection. This technique requires that the DataSource is
registered with JNDI.
Procedure
To use SQLJ connection technique 4, follow these steps:
1. From your system administrator, obtain the logical name of the data source to
which you need to connect.
2. Execute an SQLJ connection declaration clause.
For this type of connection, the connection declaration clause needs to be of
this form:
#sql public static context context-class-name
with (dataSource="logical-name");
The connection context must be declared as public and static. logical-name is the
data source name that you obtained in step 1.
3. Invoke the constructor for the connection context class that you created in step
2.
Doing this creates a connection context object that you specify in each SQL
statement that you execute at the associated data source. The constructor
invocation statement needs to be in one of the following forms:
connection-context-class connection-context-object=
new connection-context-class();
connection-context-class connection-context-object=
new connection-context-class (String user,
String password);
The meanings of the user and password parameters are:
user and password
Specify a user ID and password for connection to the data source, if the
data source to which you are connecting requires them.
If the data source is a DB2 for z/OS system, and you do not specify these
parameters, DB2 uses the external security environment, such as the RACF
132
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
security environment, that was previously established for the user. For a
CICS connection, you cannot specify a user ID or password.
Example
The following code uses connection technique 4 to create a connection to a location
with logical name jdbc/sampledb. The connection requires a user ID and password.
#sql public static context Ctx
with (dataSource="jdbc/sampledb");
2
// Create connection context class Ctx
String userid="dbadm";
// Declare variables for user ID and password
String password="dbadm";
String empname;
// Declare a host variable
...
Ctx myConnCtx=new Ctx(userid, password);
3
// Create connection context object myConnCtx
// for the connection to jdbc/sampledb
#sql [myConnCtx] {SELECT LASTNAME INTO :empname FROM EMPLOYEE
WHERE EMPNO=’000010’};
// Use myConnCtx for executing an SQL statement
Figure 26. Using connection technique 4 to connect to a data source
SQLJ connection technique 5: Use a previously created
connection context
SQLJ connection technique 5 uses a previously created connection context to
connect to the data source.
About this task
In general, one program declares a connection context class, creates connection
contexts, and passes them as parameters to other programs. A program that uses
the connection context invokes a constructor with the passed connection context
object as its argument.
Example
Program CtxGen.sqlj declares connection context Ctx and creates instance oldCtx:
#sql context Ctx;
...
// Create connection context object oldCtx
Program test.sqlj receives oldCtx as a parameter and uses oldCtx as the argument
of its connection context constructor:
void useContext(sqlj.runtime.ConnectionContext oldCtx)
// oldCtx was created in CtxGen.sqlj
{
Ctx myConnCtx=
new Ctx(oldCtx);
// Create connection context object myConnCtx
// from oldCtx
#sql [myConnCtx] {SELECT LASTNAME INTO :empname FROM EMPLOYEE
WHERE EMPNO=’000010’};
// Use myConnCtx for executing an SQL statement
...
}
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
133
SQLJ connection technique 6: Use the default connection
SQLJ connection technique 6 uses the default connection to connect to the data
source. It should be used only in situations where the database thread is controlled
by another resource manager, such as the Java stored procedure environment.
About this task
You use the default connection by specifying your SQL statements without a
connection context object. When you use this technique, you do not need to load a
JDBC driver unless you explicitly use JDBC interfaces in your program.
The default connection context can be:
v The connection context that is associated with the data source that is bound to
the logical name jdbc/defaultDataSource
v An explicitly created connection context that has been set as the default
connection context with the ConnectionContext.setDefaultContext method. This
method of creating a default connection context is not recommended.
In a stored procedure that runs on DB2 for z/OS, or for a CICS or IMS application,
when you use the default connection, DB2 uses the implicit connection.
Example
The following SQLJ execution clause does not have a connection context, so it uses
the default connection context.
#sql {SELECT LASTNAME INTO :empname FROM EMPLOYEE
WHERE EMPNO=’000010’}; // Use default connection for
// executing an SQL statement
Java packages for SQLJ support
Before you can execute SQLJ statements or invoke JDBC methods in your SQLJ
program, you need to be able to access all or parts of various Java packages that
contain support for those statements.
You can do that either by importing the packages or specific classes, or by using
fully-qualified class names. You might need the following packages or classes for
your SQLJ program:
sqlj.runtime
Contains the SQLJ run-time API.
java.sql
Contains the core JDBC API.
com.ibm.db2.jcc
Contains the driver-specific implementation of JDBC and SQLJ.
javax.naming
Contains methods for performing Java Naming and Directory Interface
(JNDI) lookup.
javax.sql
Contains methods for creating DataSource objects.

Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Variables in SQLJ applications
In DB2 programs in other languages, you use host variables to pass data between
the application program and DB2. In SQLJ programs, In SQLJ programs, you can
use host variables or host expressions.
A host expression begins with a colon (:). The colon is followed by an optional
parameter mode identifier (IN, OUT, or INOUT), which is followed by a
parenthesized expression clause.
Host variables and host expressions are case sensitive.
A complex expression is an array element or Java expression that evaluates to a
single value. A complex expression in an SQLJ clause must be surrounded by
parentheses.
The following examples demonstrate how to use host expressions.
Example: Declaring a Java identifier and using it in a SELECT statement:
In this example, the statement that begins with #sql has the same function as a
SELECT statement in other languages. This statement assigns the last name of the
employee with employee number 000010 to Java identifier empname.
String empname;
...
#sql [ctxt]
{SELECT LASTNAME INTO :empname FROM EMPLOYEE WHERE EMPNO=’000010’};
Example: Declaring a Java identifier and using it in a stored procedure call:
In this example, the statement that begins with #sql has the same function as an
SQL CALL statement in other languages. This statement uses Java identifier empno
as an input parameter to stored procedure A. The keyword IN, which precedes
empno, specifies that empno is an input parameter. For a parameter in a CALL
statement, IN is the default. The explicit or default qualifier that indicates how the
parameter is used (IN, OUT, or INOUT) must match the corresponding value in
the parameter definition that you specified in the CREATE PROCEDURE statement
for the stored procedure.
String empno = "0000010";
...
#sql [ctxt] {CALL A (:IN empno)};
Example: Using a complex expression as a host identifier:
This example uses complex expression (((int)yearsEmployed++/5)*500) as a host
expression.
#sql [ctxt] {UPDATE EMPLOYEE
SET BONUS=:(((int)yearsEmployed++/5)*500) WHERE EMPNO=:empID};
SQLJ performs the following actions when it processes a complex host expression:
v Evaluates each of the host expressions in the statement, from left to right, before
assigning their respective values to the database.
v Evaluates side effects, such as operations with postfix operators, according to
normal Java rules. All host expressions are fully evaluated before any of their
values are passed to DB2.
v Uses Java rules for rounding and truncation.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
135
Therefore, if the value of yearsEmployed is 6 before the UPDATE statement is
executed, the value that is assigned to column BONUS by the UPDATE statement
is ((int)6/5)*500, or 500. After 500 is assigned to BONUS, the value of
yearsEmployed is incremented.
Restrictions on variable names: Two strings have special meanings in SQLJ
programs. Observe the following restrictions when you use these strings in your
SQLJ programs:
v The string __sJT_ is a reserved prefix for variable names that are generated by
SQLJ. Do not begin the following types of names with __sJT_:
– Host expression names
– Java variable names that are declared in blocks that include executable SQL
statements
– Names of parameters for methods that contain executable SQL statements
– Names of fields in classes that contain executable SQL statements, or in
classes with subclasses or enclosed classes that contain executable SQL
statements
v The string _SJ is a reserved suffix for resource files and classes that are
generated by SQLJ. Avoid using the string _SJ in class names and input source
file names.
Indicator variables in SQLJ applications
In SQLJ programs, you can use indicator variables to pass the NULL value to or
from a data server, to pass the default value for a column to the data server, or to
indicate that a host variable value is unassigned.
A host variable or host expression can be followed by an indicator variable. An
indicator variable begins with a colon (:) and has the data type short. For input, an
indicator variable indicates whether the corresponding host variable or host
expression has the default value, a non-null value, the null value, or is unassigned.
An unassigned variable in an SQL statement yields the same results as if the
variable and its target column were not in the SQL statement. For output, the
indicator variable indicates where the corresponding host variable or host
expression has a non-null value or a null value.
In SQLJ programs, indicator variables that indicate a null value perform the same
function as assigning the Java null value to a table column. However, you need to
use an indicator variable to retrieve the SQL NULL value from a table into a host
variable.
You can use indicator variables that assign the default value or the unassigned
value to columns to simplify the coding in your applications. For example, if a
table has four columns, and you might need to update any combination of those
columns, without the use of default indicator variables or unassigned indicator
variables, you need 15 UPDATE statements to perform all possible combinations of
updates. With default indicator variables and unassigned indicator variables, you
can use one UPDATE statement with all four columns in the SET statement to
perform all possible updates. You use the indicator variables to indicate which
columns you want to set to their default values, and which columns you do not
want to update.
For input, SQLJ supports the use of indicator variables for INSERT, UPDATE, or
MERGE statements.
136
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
If you customize your SQLJ application, you can assign one of the following values
to an indicator variable in an SQLJ application to specify the type of the
corresponding input host variable.
Indicator value
Equivalent constant
Meaning of value
-1
sqlj.runtime.ExecutionContext.DBNull
Null
-2, -3, -4, -6
Null
-5
sqlj.runtime.ExecutionContext.DBDefault
Default
-7
sqlj.runtime.ExecutionContext.DBUnassigned
Unassigned
short-value >=0
sqlj.runtime.ExecutionContext.DBNonNull
Non-null
If you do not customize the application, you can assign one of the following values
to an indicator variable to specify the type of the corresponding input host
variable.
Indicator value
Equivalent constant
Meaning of value
-1
sqlj.runtime.ExecutionContext.DBNull
Null
-7 <= short-value < -1
0
Null
sqlj.runtime.ExecutionContext.DBNonNull
short-value >0
Non-null
Non-null
For output, SQLJ supports the use of indicator variables for the following
statements:
v CALL with OUT or INOUT parameters
v FETCH iterator INTO host-variable
v SELECT ... INTO host-variable-1,...host-variable-n
SQLJ assigns one of the following values to an indicator variable to indicate
whether an SQL NULL value was retrieved into the corresponding host variable.
Indicator value
Equivalent constant
Meaning of value
-1
sqlj.runtime.ExecutionContext.DBNull
Retrieved value is SQL NULL
0
Retrieved value is not SQL NULL
You cannot use indicator variables to update result sets. To assign null values or
default values to result sets, or to indicate that columns are unassigned, call
ResultSet.updateObject on the underlying JDBC ResultSet objects of the SQLJ
iterators.
The following examples demonstrate how to use indicator variables.
All examples require that the data server supports extended indicators.
Example of using indicators to assign the default value to columns during an INSERT:
In this example, the MGRNO and LOCATION columns need to be set to their
default values. To do this, the code performs these steps:
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
137
1. Assigns the value ExecutionContext.DBNonNull to the indicator variables
(deptInd, dNameInd, rptDeptInd) for the input host variables (dept, dName,
rptDept) that send non-default values to the target columns.
2. Assigns the value ExecutionContext.DBDefault to the indicator variables
(mgrInd, locnInd) for the input host variables (mgr, locn) that send default
values to the target columns.
3. Executes an INSERT statement with the host variable and indicator variable
pairs as input.
The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously
described steps.
import sqlj.runtime.*;
...
String dept = "F01";
String dName = "SHIPPING";
String rptDept = "A00";
String mgr, locn = null;
short deptInd, dNameInd, mgrInd, rptDeptInd, locnInd;
// Set indicator variables for dept, dName, rptDept to non-null
deptInd = dNameInd = rptDeptInd = ExecutionContext.DBNonNull;
1
mgrInd = ExecutionContext.DBDefault;
2
locnInd = ExecutionContext.DBDefault;
#sql [ctxt]
3
{INSERT INTO DEPARTMENT
(DEPTNO, DEPTNAME, MGRNO, ADMRDEPT, LOCATION)
VALUES (:dept :deptInd, :dName :dNameInd,:mgr :mgrInd,
:rptDept :rptDeptInd, :locn :locnInd)};
Example of using indicators to assign the default value to leave column values unassigned
during an UPDATE:
In this example, in rows for department F01, the MGRNO column needs to be set
to its default value, the DEPTNAME column value needs to be changed to
RECEIVING, and the DEPTNO, DEPTNAME, ADMRDEPT, and LOCATION
columns need to remain unchanged. To do this, the code performs these steps:
1. Assigns the new value for the DEPTNAME column to the dName input host
variable.
2. Assigns the value ExecutionContext.DBDefault to the indicator variable
(mgrInd) for the input host variable (mgr) that sends the default value to the
target column.
3. Assigns the value ExecutionContext.DBUnassigned to the indicator variables
(deptInd, dNameInd, rptDeptInd, and locnInd) for the input host variables
(dept, dName, rptDept, and locn) that need to remain unchanged by the
UPDATE operation.
4. Executes an UPDATE statement with the host variable and indicator variable
pairs as input.
The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously
described steps.
import sqlj.runtime.*;
...
String dept = null;
String dName = "RECEIVING";
String rptDept = null;
String mgr, locn = null;
short deptInd, dNameInd, mgrInd, rptDeptInd, locnInd;
dNameInd = ExecutionContext.DBNonNull;
mgrInd = ExecutionContext.DBDefault;
138
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java

2
deptInd = rptDeptInd = locnInd = ExecutionContext.DBUnassigned; 3
#sql [ctxt]
4
{UPDATE DEPARTMENT
SET DEPTNO = :dept :deptInd,
DEPTNAME = :dName :dNameInd,
MGRNO = :mgr :mgrInd,
ADMRDEPT = :rptDept :rptDeptInd,
LOCATION = :locn :locnInd
WHERE DEPTNO = "F01"
};
Example of using indicators to retrieve NULL values from columns:
In this example, the HIREDATE column can return the NULL value. To handle this
case, the code performs these steps:
1. Defines an indicator variable to indicate when the NULL value is returned from
HIREDATE.
2. Executes FETCH statements with the host variable and indicator variable pairs
as output.
3. Checks the indicator variable to determine whether a NULL value was
returned.
The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously
described steps.
import sqlj.runtime.*;
...
#sql iterator ByPos(String, Date);
{
...
ByPos positer;
String name = null;
Date hrdate = null;
short indhrdate = null;
#sql [ctxt] positer =
{SELECT LASTNAME, HIREDATE FROM
// Declare positioned iterator ByPos
// Declare object of ByPos class
// Declare host variables
// Declare indicator variable
1
EMPLOYEE};
// Assign the result table of the SELECT
// to iterator object positer
#sql {FETCH :positer INTO :name, :hrdate :indhrdate };
2
// Retrieve the first row
while (!positer.endFetch())
// Check whether the FETCH returned a row
{ if(indhrdate == ExecutionContext.DBNonNull {
3
System.out.println(name + " was hired in " +
hrdate); }
else {
System.out.println(name + " has no hire date "); }
#sql {FETCH :positer INTO :name, :hrdate };
// Fetch the next row
}
positer.close();
// Close the iterator
5
}
Example of assigning default values to result set columns:
In this example, the HIREDATE column in a result set needs to be set to its default
value. To do this, the code performs these steps:
1. Retrieves the underlying ResultSet from the iterator that holds the retrieved
data.
2. Executes the ResultSet.updateObject method with the
DB2PreparedStatement.DB_PARAMETER_DEFAULT constant to assign the default
value to the result set column.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
139
The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously
described steps.
#sql public iterator sensitiveUpdateIter
implements sqlj.runtime.Scrollable, sqlj.runtime.ForUpdate
with (sensitivity=sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.SENSITIVE,
updateColumns="LASTNAME, HIREDATE") (String, Date);

Comments in an SQLJ application
To document your SQLJ program, you need to include comments. You can use
Java comments outside of SQLJ statements and SQL or Java comments in SQLJ
statements.
You can include Java comments outside SQLJ clauses, wherever the Java language
permits them. Within an SQLJ clause, you can use comments in the following
places:
v Within a host expression (enclosed in /* and */ or preceded by //).
v Within an SQL statement in an executable clause, if the data server supports a
comment within the SQL statement.
– For connections to DB2 data servers or Informix data servers, comments can
be:
- Anywhere in the SQL statement text, and enclosed in /* and */ pairs. /*
and */ pairs can be nested.
- At the end of the SQL statement text, and preceded by two hyphens (--).
– For connections to Informix data servers only, comments can be enclosed in
left curly bracket ({) and right curly bracket (}) pairs.
SQL statement execution in SQLJ applications
You execute SQL statements in a traditional SQL program to create tables, update
data in tables, retrieve data from the tables, call stored procedures, or commit or
roll back transactions. In an SQLJ program, you also execute these statements,
within SQLJ executable clauses.
An executable clause can have one of the following general forms:
#sql [connection-context] {sql-statement};
#sql [connection-context,execution-context] {sql-statement};
#sql [execution-context] {sql-statement};
execution-context specification
In an executable clause, you should always specify an explicit connection
context, with one exception: you do not specify an explicit connection context
for a FETCH statement. You include an execution context only for specific
140
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
cases. See "Control the execution of SQL statements in SQLJ" for information
about when you need an execution context.
connection-context specification
In an executable clause, if you do not explicitly specify a connection context,
the executable clause uses the default connection context.
Creating and modifying database objects in an SQLJ
application
Use SQLJ executable clauses to execute data definition statements (CREATE,
ALTER, DROP, GRANT, REVOKE) or to execute INSERT, searched or positioned
UPDATE, and searched or positioned DELETE statements.
Example
The following executable statements demonstrate an INSERT, a searched UPDATE,
and a searched DELETE:
#sql [myConnCtx] {INSERT INTO DEPARTMENT VALUES
("X00","Operations 2","000030","E01",NULL)};
#sql [myConnCtx] {UPDATE DEPARTMENT
SET MGRNO="000090" WHERE MGRNO="000030"};
#sql [myConnCtx] {DELETE FROM DEPARTMENT
WHERE DEPTNO="X00"};
Performing positioned UPDATE and DELETE operations in an
SQLJ application
As in DB2 applications in other languages, performing positioned UPDATEs and
DELETEs with SQLJ is an extension of retrieving rows from a result table.
Procedure
The basic steps are:
1. Declare the iterator.
The iterator can be positioned or named. For positioned UPDATE or DELETE
operations, declare the iterator as updatable, using one or both of the following
clauses:
implements sqlj.runtime.ForUpdate
This clause causes the generated iterator class to include methods for
using updatable iterators. This clause is required for programs with
positioned UPDATE or DELETE operations.
with (updateColumns="column-list")
This clause specifies a comma-separated list of the columns of the result
table that the iterator will update. This clause is optional.
You need to declare the iterator as public, so you need to follow the rules for
declaring and using public iterators in the same file or different files.
If you declare the iterator in a file by itself, any SQLJ source file that has
addressability to the iterator and imports the generated class can retrieve data
and execute positioned UPDATE or DELETE statements using the iterator.
The authorization ID under which a positioned UPDATE or DELETE statement
executes depends on whether the statement executes statically or dynamically.
If the statement executes statically, the authorization ID is the owner of the plan
or package that includes the statement. If the statement executes dynamically
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
141
the authorization ID is determined by the DYNAMICRULES behavior that is in
effect. For the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, the behavior is
always DYNAMICRULES BIND.
2. Disable autocommit mode for the connection.
If autocommit mode is enabled, a COMMIT operation occurs every time the
positioned UPDATE statement executes, which causes the iterator to be
destroyed unless the iterator has the with (holdability=true) attribute.
Therefore, you need to turn autocommit off to prevent COMMIT operations
until you have finished using the iterator. If you want a COMMIT to occur
after every update operation, an alternative way to keep the iterator from being
destroyed after each COMMIT operation is to declare the iterator with
(holdability=true).
3. Create an instance of the iterator class.
This is the same step as for a non-updatable iterator.
4. Assign the result table of a SELECT to an instance of the iterator.
This is the same step as for a non-updatable iterator. The SELECT statement
must not include a FOR UPDATE clause.
5. Retrieve and update rows.
For a positioned iterator, do this by performing the following actions in a loop:
a. Execute a FETCH statement in an executable clause to obtain the current
row.
b. Test whether the iterator is pointing to a row of the result table by invoking
the PositionedIterator.endFetch method.
c. If the iterator is pointing to a row of the result table, execute an SQL
UPDATE... WHERE CURRENT OF :iterator-object statement in an executable
clause to update the columns in the current row. Execute an SQL DELETE...
WHERE CURRENT OF :iterator-object statement in an executable clause to
delete the current row.
For a named iterator, do this by performing the following actions in a loop:
a. Invoke the next method to move the iterator forward.
b. Test whether the iterator is pointing to a row of the result table by checking
whether next returns true.
c. Execute an SQL UPDATE... WHERE CURRENT OF iterator-object statement
in an executable clause to update the columns in the current row. Execute
an SQL DELETE... WHERE CURRENT OF iterator-object statement in an
executable clause to delete the current row.
6. Close the iterator.
Use the close method to do this.
Example
The following code shows how to declare a positioned iterator and use it for
positioned UPDATEs. The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond
to the previously described steps.
First, in one file, declare positioned iterator UpdByPos, specifying that you want to
use the iterator to update column SALARY:

// Close the connection context
}

Iterators as passed variables for positioned UPDATE or DELETE
operations in an SQLJ application
SQLJ allows iterators to be passed between methods as variables.
An iterator that is used for a positioned UPDATE or DELETE statement can be
identified only at runtime. The same SQLJ positioned UPDATE or DELETE
statement can be used with different iterators at runtime. If you specify a value of
YES for -staticpositioned when you customize your SQLJ application as part of the
program preparation process, the SQLJ customizer prepares positioned UPDATE or
DELETE statements to execute statically. In this case, the customizer must
determine which iterators belong with which positioned UPDATE or DELETE
statements. The SQLJ customizer does this by matching iterator data types to data
types in the UPDATE or DELETE statements. However, if there is not a unique
mapping of tables in UPDATE or DELETE statements to iterator classes, the SQLJ
customizer cannot determine exactly which iterators and UPDATE or DELETE
statements go together. The SQLJ customizer must arbitrarily pair iterators with
UPDATE or DELETE statements, which can sometimes result in SQL errors. The
following code fragments illustrate this point.
#sql iterator GeneralIter implements sqlj.runtime.ForUpdate
( String );
public static void main ( String args[] )
{
...
GeneralIter iter1 = null;
#sql [ctxt] iter1 = { SELECT CHAR_COL1 FROM TABLE1 };
GeneralIter iter2 = null;
#sql [ctxt] iter2 = { SELECT CHAR_COL2 FROM TABLE2 };
...
doUpdate ( iter1 );
}
public static void doUpdate ( GeneralIter iter )
{
#sql [ctxt] { UPDATE TABLE1 ... WHERE CURRENT OF :iter };
}
Figure 31. Static positioned UPDATE that fails
In this example, only one iterator is declared. Two instances of that iterator are
declared, and each is associated with a different SELECT statement that retrieves
data from a different table. During customization and binding with
-staticpositioned YES, SQLJ creates two DECLARE CURSOR statements, one for
each SELECT statement, and attempts to bind an UPDATE statement for each
cursor. However, the bind process fails with SQLCODE -509 when UPDATE TABLE1
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
145
... WHERE CURRENT OF :iter is bound for the cursor for SELECT CHAR_COL2 FROM
TABLE2 because the table for the UPDATE does not match the table for the cursor.
You can avoid a bind time error for a program like the one in Figure 31 on page
145 by specifying the bind option SQLERROR(CONTINUE). However, this
technique has the drawback that it causes the DB2 database manager to build a
package, regardless of the SQL errors that are in the program. A better technique is
to write the program so that there is a one-to-one mapping between tables in
positioned UPDATE or DELETE statements and iterator classes. Figure 32 shows
an example of how to do this.
#sql iterator Table2Iter(String);
#sql iterator Table1Iter(String);
public static void main ( String args[] )
{
...
Table2Iter iter2 = null;
#sql [ctxt] iter2 = { SELECT CHAR_COL2 FROM TABLE2 };
Table1Iter iter1 = null;
#sql [ctxt] iter1 = { SELECT CHAR_COL1 FROM TABLE1 };
...
doUpdate(iter1);
}
public static void doUpdate ( Table1Iter
{
...
#sql [ctxt] { UPDATE TABLE1 ... WHERE
...
}
public static void doUpdate ( Table2Iter
{
...
#sql [ctxt] { UPDATE TABLE2 ... WHERE
...
}
iter )
CURRENT OF :iter };
iter )
CURRENT OF :iter };
Figure 32. Static positioned UPDATE that succeeds
With this method of coding, each iterator class is associated with only one table.
Therefore, the DB2 bind process can always associate the positioned UPDATE
statement with a valid iterator.
Making batch updates in SQLJ applications
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports batch updates in SQLJ.
With batch updates, instead of updating rows of a table one at a time, you can
direct SQLJ to execute a group of updates at the same time.
About this task
You can include the following types of statements in a batch update:
v Searched INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE, or MERGE statements
v CREATE, ALTER, DROP, GRANT, or REVOKE statements
v CALL statements with input parameters only
Unlike JDBC, SQLJ allows heterogeneous batches that contain statements with
input parameters or host expressions. You can therefore combine any of the
following items in an SQLJ batch:
146
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
v
v
v
v
v
Instances of the same statement
Different statements
Statements with different numbers of input parameters or host expressions
Statements with different data types for input parameters or host expressions
Statements with no input parameters or host expressions
For all cases except homogeneous batches of INSERT statements, when an error
occurs during execution of a statement in a batch, the remaining statements are
executed, and a BatchUpdateException is thrown after all the statements in the
batch have executed.
For homogeneous batches of INSERT statements, the behavior is as follows:
v If you set atomicMultiRowInsert to DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1) when you run
db2sqljcustomize, and the target data server is DB2 for z/OS, when an error
occurs during execution of an INSERT statement in a batch, the remaining
statements are not executed, and a BatchUpdateException is thrown.
v If you do not set atomicMultiRowInsert to DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1) when you
run db2sqljcustomize, or the target data server is not DB2 for z/OS, when an
error occurs during execution of an INSERT statement in a batch, the remaining
statements are executed, and a BatchUpdateException is thrown after all the
statements in the batch have executed.
To obtain information about warnings, use the ExecutionContext.getWarnings
method on the ExecutionContext that you used to submit statements to be
batched. You can then retrieve an error description, SQLSTATE, and error code for
each SQLWarning object.
When a batch is executed implicitly because the program contains a statement that
cannot be added to the batch, the batch is executed before the new statement is
processed. If an error occurs during execution of the batch, the statement that
caused the batch to execute does not execute.
Procedure
The basic steps for creating, executing, and deleting a batch of statements are:
1. Disable AutoCommit for the connection.
Do this so that you can control whether to commit changes to already-executed
statements when an error occurs during batch execution.
2. Acquire an execution context.
All statements that execute in a batch must use this execution context.
3. Invoke the ExecutionContext.setBatching(true) method to create a batch.
Subsequent batchable statements that are associated with the execution context
that you created in step 2 are added to the batch for later execution.
If you want to batch sets of statements that are not batch compatible in parallel,
you need to create an execution context for each set of batch compatible
statements.
4. Include SQLJ executable clauses for SQL statements that you want to batch.
These clauses must include the execution context that you created in step 2.
If an SQLJ executable clause has input parameters or host expressions, you can
include the statement in the batch multiple times with different values for the
input parameters or host expressions.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
147
To determine whether a statement was added to an existing batch, was the first
statement in a new batch, or was executed inside or outside a batch, invoke the
ExecutionContext.getUpdateCount method. This method returns one of the
following values:
ExecutionContext.ADD_BATCH_COUNT
This is a constant that is returned if the statement was added to an existing
batch.
ExecutionContext.NEW_BATCH_COUNT
This is a constant that is returned if the statement was the first statement in
a new batch.
ExecutionContext.EXEC_BATCH_COUNT
This is a constant that is returned if the statement was part of a batch, and
the batch was executed.
Other integer
This value is the number of rows that were updated by the statement. This
value is returned if the statement was executed rather than added to a
batch.
5. Execute the batch explicitly or implicitly.
v Invoke the ExecutionContext.executeBatch method to execute the batch
explicitly.
executeBatch returns an integer array that contains the number of rows that
were updated by each statement in the batch. The order of the elements in
the array corresponds to the order in which you added statements to the
batch.
v Alternatively, a batch executes implicitly under the following circumstances:
– You include a batchable statement in your program that is not compatible
with statements that are already in the batch. In this case, SQLJ executes
the statements that are already in the batch and creates a new batch that
includes the incompatible statement.
– You include a statement in your program that is not batchable. In this
case, SQLJ executes the statements that are already in the batch. SQLJ also
executes the statement that is not batchable.
– After you invoke the ExecutionContext.setBatchLimit(n) method, you
add a statement to the batch that brings the number of statements in the
batch to n or greater. n can have one of the following values:
ExecutionContext.UNLIMITED_BATCH
This constant indicates that implicit execution occurs only when SQLJ
encounters a statement that is batchable but incompatible, or not
batchable. Setting this value is the same as not invoking
setBatchLimit.
ExecutionContext.AUTO_BATCH
This constant indicates that implicit execution occurs when the
number of statements in the batch reaches a number that is set by
SQLJ.
Positive integer
When this number of statements have been added to the batch, SQLJ
executes the batch implicitly. However, the batch might be executed
before this many statements have been added if SQLJ encounters a
statement that is batchable but incompatible, or not batchable.
148
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
To determine the number of rows that were updated by a batch that was
executed implicitly, invoke the ExecutionContext.getBatchUpdateCounts
method. getBatchUpdateCounts returns an integer array that contains the
number of rows that were updated by each statement in the batch. The order
of the elements in the array corresponds to the order in which you added
statements to the batch. Each array element can be one of the following
values:
-2 This value indicates that the SQL statement executed successfully, but the
number of rows that were updated could not be determined.
-3 This value indicates that the SQL statement failed.
Other integer
This value is the number of rows that were updated by the statement.
6. Optionally, when all statements have been added to the batch, disable batching.
Do this by invoking the ExecutionContext.setBatching(false) method. When
you disable batching, you can still execute the batch implicitly or explicitly, but
no more statements are added to the batch. Disabling batching is useful when a
batch already exists, and you want to execute a batch compatible statement,
rather than adding it to the batch.
If you want to clear a batch without executing it, invoke the
ExecutionContext.cancel method.
7. If batch execution was implicit, perform a final, explicit executeBatch to ensure
that all statements have been executed.
Example
The following example demonstrates batching of UPDATE statements. The
numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously described
steps.
#sql iterator GetMgr(String);
// Declare positioned iterator
...
{
GetMgr deptiter;
// Declare object of GetMgr class
String mgrnum = null;
// Declare host variable for manager number
int raise = 400;
// Declare raise amount
int currentSalary;
// Declare current salary
String url, username, password;
// Declare url, user ID, password
...
TestContext c1 = new TestContext (url, username, password, false); 1
ExecutionContext ec = new ExecutionContext();
2
ec.setBatching(true);
3
#sql [c1] deptiter =
{SELECT MGRNO FROM DEPARTMENT};
// Assign the result table of the SELECT
// to iterator object deptiter
#sql {FETCH :deptiter INTO :mgrnum};
// Retrieve the first manager number
while (!deptiter.endFetch()) {
// Check whether the FETCH returned a row
#sql [c1]
{SELECT SALARY INTO :currentSalary FROM EMPLOYEE
WHERE EMPNO=:mgrnum};
#sql [c1, ec]
4
{UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET SALARY=:(currentSalary+raise)
WHERE EMPNO=:mgrnum};
#sql {FETCH :deptiter INTO :mgrnum };
// Fetch the next row
}
ec.executeBatch();
5
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
149
ec.setBatching(false);
#sql [c1] {COMMIT};
deptiter.close();
c1.close();
6
// Close the iterator
// Close the connection
}
The following example demonstrates batching of INSERT statements. Suppose that
ATOMICTBL is defined like this:
CREATE TABLE ATOMICTBL(
INTCOL INTEGER NOT NULL UNIQUE,
CHARCOL VARCHAR(10))
Also suppose that the table already has a row with the values 2 and "val2".
Because of the uniqueness constraint on INTCOL, when the following code is
executed, the second INSERT statement in the batch fails.
If the target data server is DB2 for z/OS, and this application is customized
without atomicMultiRowInsert set to DB2BaseDataSource.YES, the batch INSERT is
non-atomic, so the first set of values is inserted in the table. However, if the
application is customized with atomicMultiRowInsert set to
DB2BaseDataSource.YES, the batch INSERT is atomic, so the first set of values is not
inserted.
The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously
described steps.
...
TestContext ctx = new TestContext (url, username, password, false); 1
ctx.getExecutionContext().setBatching(true);
2,3
try {
for (int i = 1; i<= 2; ++i) {
if (i == 1) {
intVar = 3;
strVar = "val1";
{
if (i == 2) {
intVar = 1;
strVar = "val2";
}
#sql [ctx] {INSERT INTO ATOMICTBL values(:intVar, :strVar)};
4
}
int[] counts = ctx.getExecutionContext().executeBatch();
5
for (int i = 0; i<counts.length; ++i) {
System.out.println(" count[" + i + "]:" + counts[i]);
}
}
catch (SQLException e) {
System.out.println(" Exception Caught: " + e.getMessage());
SQLException excp = null;
if (e instanceof SQLException)
{
System.out.println(" SQLCode: " + ((SQLException)e).getErrorCode() + "
Message: " + e.getMessage() );
excp = ((SQLException)e).getNextException();
while ( excp != null ) {
System.out.println(" SQLCode: " + ((SQLException)excp).getErrorCode() +
" Message: " + excp.getMessage() );
excp = excp.getNextException();
}
}
}

Data retrieval in SQLJ applications
SQLJ applications use a result set iterator to retrieve result sets. Like a cursor, a
result set iterator can be non-scrollable or scrollable.
Just as in DB2 applications in other languages, if you want to retrieve a single row
from a table in an SQLJ application, you can write a SELECT INTO statement with
a WHERE clause that defines a result table that contains only that row:
#sql [myConnCtx] {SELECT DEPTNO INTO :hvdeptno
FROM DEPARTMENT WHERE DEPTNAME="OPERATIONS"};
However, most SELECT statements that you use create result tables that contain
many rows. In DB2 applications in other languages, you use a cursor to select the
individual rows from the result table. That cursor can be non-scrollable, which
means that when you use it to fetch rows, you move the cursor serially, from the
beginning of the result table to the end. Alternatively, the cursor can be scrollable,
which means that when you use it to fetch rows, you can move the cursor
forward, backward, or to any row in the result table.
This topic discusses how to use non-scrollable iterators. For information on using
scrollable iterators, see "Use scrollable iterators in an SQLJ application".
A result set iterator is a Java object that you use to retrieve rows from a result
table. Unlike a cursor, a result set iterator can be passed as a parameter to a
method.
The basic steps in using a result set iterator are:
1. Declare the iterator, which results in an iterator class
2. Define an instance of the iterator class.
3. Assign the result table of a SELECT to an instance of the iterator.
4. Retrieve rows.
5. Close the iterator.
There are two types of iterators: positioned iterators and named iterators. Positioned
iterators extend the interface sqlj.runtime.PositionedIterator. Positioned
iterators identify the columns of a result table by their position in the result table.
Named iterators extend the interface sqlj.runtime.NamedIterator. Named iterators
identify the columns of the result table by result table column names.
Using a named iterator in an SQLJ application
Use a named iterator to refer to each of the columns in a result table by name.
Procedure
The steps in using a named iterator are:
1. Declare the iterator.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
151
You declare any result set iterator using an iterator declaration clause. This causes
an iterator class to be created that has the same name as the iterator. For a
named iterator, the iterator declaration clause specifies the following
information:
v The name of the iterator
v A list of column names and Java data types
v Information for a Java class declaration, such as whether the iterator is
public or static
v A set of attributes, such as whether the iterator is holdable, or whether its
columns can be updated
When you declare a named iterator for a query, you specify names for each of
the iterator columns. Those names must match the names of columns in the
result table for the query. An iterator column name and a result table column
name that differ only in case are considered to be matching names. The named
iterator class that results from the iterator declaration clause contains accessor
methods. There is one accessor method for each column of the iterator. Each
accessor method name is the same as the corresponding iterator column name.
You use the accessor methods to retrieve data from columns of the result table.
You need to specify Java data types in the iterators that closely match the
corresponding DB2 column data types. See "Java, JDBC, and SQL data types"
for a list of the best mappings between Java data types and DB2 data types.
You can declare an iterator in a number of ways. However, because a Java class
underlies each iterator, you need to ensure that when you declare an iterator,
the underlying class obeys Java rules. For example, iterators that contain a
with-clause must be declared as public. Therefore, if an iterator needs to be
public, it can be declared only where a public class is allowed. The following
list describes some alternative methods of declaring an iterator:
v As public, in a source file by itself
This method lets you use the iterator declaration in other code modules, and
provides an iterator that works for all SQLJ applications. In addition, there
are no concerns about having other top-level classes or public classes in the
same source file.
v As a top-level class in a source file that contains other top-level class
definitions
Java allows only one public, top-level class in a code module. Therefore, if
you need to declare the iterator as public, such as when the iterator includes
a with-clause, no other classes in the code module can be declared as public.
v As a nested static class within another class
Using this alternative lets you combine the iterator declaration with other
class declarations in the same source file, declare the iterator and other
classes as public, and make the iterator class visible to other code modules or
packages. However, when you reference the iterator from outside the nesting
class, you must fully-qualify the iterator name with the name of the nesting
class.
v As an inner class within another class
When you declare an iterator in this way, you can instantiate it only within
an instance of the nesting class. However, you can declare the iterator and
other classes in the file as public.
You cannot cast a JDBC ResultSet to an iterator if the iterator is declared as
an inner class. This restriction does not apply to an iterator that is declared
as a static nested class. See "Use SQLJ and JDBC in the same application" for
more information on casting a ResultSet to a iterator.

Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
2. Create an instance of the iterator class.
You declare an object of the named iterator class to retrieve rows from a result
table.
3. Assign the result table of a SELECT to an instance of the iterator.
To assign the result table of a SELECT to an iterator, you use an SQLJ
assignment clause. The format of the assignment clause for a named iterator is:
#sql context-clause iterator-object={select-statement};
See "SQLJ assignment-clause" and "SQLJ context-clause" for more information.
4. Retrieve rows.
Do this by invoking accessor methods in a loop. Accessor methods have the
same names as the corresponding columns in the iterator, and have no
parameters. An accessor method returns the value from the corresponding
column of the current row in the result table. Use the NamedIterator.next()
method to move the cursor forward through the result table.
To test whether you have retrieved all rows, check the value that is returned
when you invoke the next method. next returns a boolean with a value of
false if there is no next row.
5. Close the iterator.
Use the NamedIterator.close method to do this.
Example
The following code demonstrates how to declare and use a named iterator. The
numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously-described
steps.
#sql
iterator ByName(String LastName, Date HireDate);
// Declare named iterator ByName
1
{
...
ByName nameiter;
// Declare object of ByName class
2
#sql [ctxt]
nameiter={SELECT LASTNAME, HIREDATE FROM EMPLOYEE};
3
// Assign the result table of the SELECT
// to iterator object nameiter
while (nameiter.next())
// Move the iterator through the result 4
// table and test whether all rows retrieved
{
System.out.println( nameiter.LastName() + " was hired on "
+ nameiter.HireDate());
// Use accessor methods LastName and
// HireDate to retrieve column values
}
nameiter.close();
// Close the iterator
5
}

Using a positioned iterator in an SQLJ application
Use a positioned iterator to refer to columns in a result table by their position in
the result set.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
153
Procedure
The steps in using a positioned iterator are:
1. Declare the iterator.
You declare any result set iterator using an iterator declaration clause. This causes
an iterator class to be created that has the same name and attributes as the
iterator. For a positioned iterator, the iterator declaration clause specifies the
following information:
v The name of the iterator
v A list of Java data types
v Information for a Java class declaration, such as whether the iterator is
public or static
v A set of attributes, such as whether the iterator is holdable, or whether its
columns can be updated
The data type declarations represent columns in the result table and are
referred to as columns of the result set iterator. The columns of the result set
iterator correspond to the columns of the result table, in left-to-right order. For
example, if an iterator declaration clause has two data type declarations, the
first data type declaration corresponds to the first column in the result table,
and the second data type declaration corresponds to the second column in the
result table.
You need to specify Java data types in the iterators that closely match the
corresponding DB2 column data types. See "Java, JDBC, and SQL data types"
for a list of the best mappings between Java data types and DB2 data types.
You can declare an iterator in a number of ways. However, because a Java class
underlies each iterator, you need to ensure that when you declare an iterator,
the underlying class obeys Java rules. For example, iterators that contain a
with-clause must be declared as public. Therefore, if an iterator needs to be
public, it can be declared only where a public class is allowed. The following
list describes some alternative methods of declaring an iterator:
v As public, in a source file by itself
This is the most versatile method of declaring an iterator. This method lets
you use the iterator declaration in other code modules, and provides an
iterator that works for all SQLJ applications. In addition, there are no
concerns about having other top-level classes or public classes in the same
source file.
v As a top-level class in a source file that contains other top-level class
definitions
Java allows only one public, top-level class in a code module. Therefore, if
you need to declare the iterator as public, such as when the iterator includes
a with-clause, no other classes in the code module can be declared as public.
v As a nested static class within another class
Using this alternative lets you combine the iterator declaration with other
class declarations in the same source file, declare the iterator and other
classes as public, and make the iterator class visible from other code modules
or packages. However, when you reference the iterator from outside the
nesting class, you must fully-qualify the iterator name with the name of the
nesting class.
v As an inner class within another class
When you declare an iterator in this way, you can instantiate it only within
an instance of the nesting class. However, you can declare the iterator and
other classes in the file as public.
154
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
You cannot cast a JDBC ResultSet to an iterator if the iterator is declared as
an inner class. This restriction does not apply to an iterator that is declared
as a static nested class. See "Use SQLJ and JDBC in the same application" for
more information on casting a ResultSet to a iterator.
2. Create an instance of the iterator class.
You declare an object of the positioned iterator class to retrieve rows from a
result table.
3. Assign the result table of a SELECT to an instance of the iterator.
To assign the result table of a SELECT to an iterator, you use an SQLJ
assignment clause. The format of the assignment clause for a positioned iterator
is:
#sql context-clause iterator-object={select-statement};
4. Retrieve rows.
Do this by executing FETCH statements in executable clauses in a loop. The
FETCH statements looks the same as a FETCH statements in other languages.
To test whether you have retrieved all rows, invoke the
PositionedIterator.endFetch method after each FETCH. endFetch returns a
boolean with the value true if the FETCH failed because there are no rows to
retrieve.
5. Close the iterator.
Use the PositionedIterator.close method to do this.
Example
The following code demonstrates how to declare and use a positioned iterator. The
numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to the previously-described
steps.
#sql iterator ByPos(String,Date); // Declare positioned iterator ByPos 1
{
...
ByPos positer;
// Declare object of ByPos class
2
String name = null;
// Declare host variables
Date hrdate;
#sql [ctxt] positer =
{SELECT LASTNAME, HIREDATE FROM EMPLOYEE};
3
// Assign the result table of the SELECT
// to iterator object positer
#sql {FETCH :positer INTO :name, :hrdate };
4
// Retrieve the first row
while (!positer.endFetch())
// Check whether the FETCH returned a row
{ System.out.println(name + " was hired in " +
hrdate);
#sql {FETCH :positer INTO :name, :hrdate };
// Fetch the next row
}
positer.close();
// Close the iterator

Multiple open iterators for the same SQL statement in an SQLJ
application
With the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, your application can have
multiple concurrently open iterators for a single SQL statement in an SQLJ
application. With this capability, you can perform one operation on a table using
one iterator while you perform a different operation on the same table using
another iterator.
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to DB2 for
z/OS, support for multiple open iterators on a single SQL statement must be
enabled. To do that, set the db2.jcc.allowSqljDuplicateStaticQueries configuration
property to YES or true.
When you use concurrently open iterators in an application, you should close
iterators when you no longer need them to prevent excessive storage consumption
in the Java heap.
The following examples demonstrate how to perform the same operations on a
table without concurrently open iterators on a single SQL statement and with
concurrently open iterators on a single SQL statement. These examples use the
following iterator declaration:
import java.math.*;
#sql public iterator
MultiIter(String EmpNo, BigDecimal Salary);
Without the capability for multiple, concurrently open iterators for a single SQL
statement, if you want to select employee and salary values for a specific employee
number, you need to define a different SQL statement for each employee number,
as shown in Figure 35.
MultiIter iter1 = null;
// Iterator instance for retrieving
// data for first employee
// Employee number for first employee
String EmpNo1 = "000100";
#sql [ctx] iter1 =
{SELECT EMPNO, SALARY FROM EMPLOYEE
//
MultiIter iter2 = null;
//
//
String EmpNo2 = "000200";
//
#sql [ctx] iter2 =
{SELECT EMPNO, SALARY FROM EMPLOYEE
//
// Process with iter1
// Process with iter2
iter1.close();
//
iter2.close();
WHERE EMPNO = :EmpNo1};
Assign result table to first iterator
Iterator instance for retrieving
data for second employee
Employee number for second employee
WHERE EMPNO = :EmpNo2};
Assign result table to second iterator
Close the iterators

statements

// table to the second iterator
// iter1 stays open when iter2 is opened
// Process with iter1

return iter;
// Method returns an iterator instance
}

Multiple open instances of an iterator in an SQLJ application
Multiple instances of an iterator can be open concurrently in a single SQLJ
application. One application for this ability is to open several instances of an
iterator that uses host expressions. Each instance can use a different set of host
expression values.
The following example shows an application with two concurrently open instances
of an iterator.
...
ResultSet myFunc(String empid) // Method to open an iterator and get a resultSet
{
MyIter iter;
#sql iter = {SELECT * FROM EMPLOYEE WHERE EMPNO = :empid};
return iter.getResultSet();
}
// An application can call this method to get a resultSet for each
// employee ID. The application can process each resultSet separately.
...
ResultSet rs1 = myFunc("000100"); // Get employee record for employee ID 000100
...
ResultSet rs2 = myFunc("000200"); // Get employee record for employee ID 000200
Figure 37. Example of opening more than one instance of an iterator in a single application
As with any other iterator, you need to remember to close this iterator after the last
time you use it to prevent excessive storage consumption.
Using scrollable iterators in an SQLJ application
In addition to moving forward, one row at a time, through a result table, you
might want to move backward or go directly to a specific row. The IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ provides this capability.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
157
About this task
An iterator in which you can move forward, backward, or to a specific row is
called a scrollable iterator. A scrollable iterator in SQLJ is equivalent to the result
table of a database cursor that is declared as SCROLL.
Like a scrollable cursor, a scrollable iterator can be insensitive or sensitive. A
sensitive scrollable iterator can be static or dynamic. Insensitive means that changes
to the underlying table after the iterator is opened are not visible to the iterator.
Insensitive iterators are read-only. Sensitive means that changes that the iterator or
other processes make to the underlying table are visible to the iterator. Asensitive
means that if the cursor is a read-only cursor, it behaves as an insensitive cursor. If
it is not a read-only cursor, it behaves as a sensitive cursor.
If a scrollable iterator is static, the size of the result table and the order of the rows
in the result table do not change after the iterator is opened. This means that you
cannot insert into result tables, and if you delete a row of a result table, a delete
hole occurs. If you update a row of the result table so that the row no longer
qualifies for the result table, an update hole occurs. Fetching from a hole results in
an SQLException.
Important: Like static scrollable cursors in any other language, SQLJ static
scrollable iterators use declared temporary tables for their internal processing. This
means that before you can execute any applications that contain static scrollable
iterators, your database administrator needs to create a temporary database and
temporary table spaces for those declared temporary tables.
If a scrollable iterator is dynamic, the size of the result table and the order of the
rows in the result table can change after the iterator is opened. Rows that are
inserted or deleted with INSERT and DELETE statements that are executed by the
same application process are immediately visible. Rows that are inserted or deleted
with INSERT and DELETE statements that are executed by other application
processes are visible after the changes are committed.
Important: DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows servers do not support dynamic
scrollable cursors. You can use dynamic scrollable iterators in your SQLJ
applications only if those applications access data on DB2 for z/OS servers, at
Version 9 or later.
Procedure
To create and use a scrollable iterator, you need to follow these steps:
1. Specify an iterator declaration clause that includes the following clauses:
v implements sqlj.runtime.Scrollable
This indicates that the iterator is scrollable.
v with (sensitivity=sensitivity-attribute) or with
(sensitivity=sensitivity-attribute, dynamic=true|false)
sensitivity-attribute indicates whether update or delete operations on the
underlying table can be visible to the iterator. Possible values are
sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.SENSITIVE,
sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.INSENSITIVE, or
sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.ASENSITIVE.
sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.ASENSITIVE is the default.
158
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
dynamic=true|false indicates whether the size of the result table or the order
of the rows in the result table can change after the iterator is opened. The
default value of dynamic is false.
The iterator can be a named or positioned iterator.
Example: The following iterator declaration clause declares a positioned,
sensitive, dynamic, scrollable iterator:
#sql public iterator ByPos
implements sqlj.runtime.Scrollable
with (sensitivity=sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.SENSITIVE, dynamic=true)
(String);
Example: The following iterator declaration clause declares a named,
insensitive, scrollable iterator:
#sql public iterator ByName
implements sqlj.runtime.Scrollable
with (sensitivity=sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.INSENSITIVE) (String EmpNo);
Restriction: You cannot use a scrollable iterator to select columns with the
following data types from a table on a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows
server:
v LONG VARCHAR
v LONG VARGRAPHIC
v BLOB
v CLOB
v XML
v A distinct type that is based on any of the previous data types in this list
v A structured type
2. Create an iterator object, which is an instance of your iterator class.
3. If you want to give the SQLJ runtime environment a hint about the initial fetch
direction, use the setFetchDirection(int direction) method. direction can be
FETCH_FORWARD or FETCH_REVERSE. If you do not invoke setFetchDirection, the
fetch direction is FETCH_FORWARD.
4. For each row that you want to access:
For a named iterator, perform the following steps:
a. Position the cursor using one of the methods listed in the following table.

3. If the absolute value of n is greater than the number of rows in the result table, this
method positions the cursor after the last row if n is positive, or before the first row if n
is negative.
4. Suppose that m is the number of rows in the result table and x is the current row
number in the result table. If n>0 and x+n>m, the iterator is positioned after the last row.
If n<0 and x+n<1, the iterator is positioned before the first row.
b. If you need to know the current cursor position, use the getRow, isFirst,
isLast, isBeforeFirst, or isAfterLast method to obtain this information.
If you need to know the current fetch direction, invoke the
getFetchDirection method.
c. Use accessor methods to retrieve the current row of the result table.
d. If update or delete operations by the iterator or by other means are visible
in the result table, invoke the getWarnings method to check whether the
current row is a hole.
For a positioned iterator, perform the following steps:
Use a FETCH statement with a fetch orientation clause to position the
iterator and retrieve the current row of the result table. Table 28 lists the
clauses that you can use to position the cursor.

Calling stored procedures in SQLJ applications
To call a stored procedure, you use an executable clause that contains an SQL
CALL statement.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
161
About this task
You can execute the CALL statement with host identifier parameters. You can
execute the CALL statement with literal parameters only if the DB2 server on
which the CALL statement runs supports execution of the CALL statement
dynamically.
Procedure
The basic steps in calling a stored procedure are:
1. Assign values to input (IN or INOUT) parameters.
2. Call the stored procedure.
3. Process output (OUT or INOUT) parameters.
4. If the stored procedure returns multiple result sets, retrieve those result sets.
Example
The following code illustrates calling a stored procedure that has three input
parameters and three output parameters. The numbers to the right of selected
statements correspond to the previously-described steps.
String FirstName="TOM";
// Input parameters
1
String LastName="NARISINST";
String Address="IBM";
int CustNo;
// Output parameters
String Mark;
String MarkErrorText;
...
#sql [myConnCtx] {CALL ADD_CUSTOMER(:IN FirstName,
2
:IN LastName,
:IN Address,
:OUT CustNo,
:OUT Mark,
:OUT MarkErrorText)};
// Call the stored procedure
System.out.println("Output parameters from ADD_CUSTOMER call: ");
System.out.println("Customer number for " + LastName + ": " + CustNo); 3
System.out.println(Mark);
If (MarkErrorText != null)
System.out.println(" Error messages:" + MarkErrorText);

“Retrieving multiple result sets from a stored procedure in an SQLJ application”
Retrieving multiple result sets from a stored procedure in an
SQLJ application
Some stored procedures return one or more result sets to the calling program by
including the DYNAMIC RESULT SETS n clause in the definition, with n>0, and
opening cursors that are defined with the WITH RETURN clause. The calling
program needs to retrieve the contents of those result sets.
To retrieve the rows from those result sets, you execute these steps:
1. Acquire an execution context for retrieving the result set from the stored
procedure.
2. Associate the execution context with the CALL statement for the stored
procedure.
162
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Do not use this execution context for any other purpose until you have
retrieved and processed the last result set.
3. For each result set:
a. Use the ExecutionContext method getNextResultSet to retrieve the result
set.
b. If you do not know the contents of the result set, use ResultSetMetaData
methods to retrieve this information.
c. Use an SQLJ result set iterator or JDBC ResultSet to retrieve the rows from
the result set.
Result sets are returned to the calling program in the same order that their cursors
are opened in the stored procedure. When there are no more result sets to retrieve,
getNextResultSet returns a null value.
getNextResultSet has two forms:
getNextResultSet();
getNextResultSet(int current);
When you invoke the first form of getNextResultSet, SQLJ closes the
currently-open result set and advances to the next result set. When you invoke the
second form of getNextResultSet, the value of current indicates what SQLJ does
with the currently-open result set before it advances to the next result set:
java.sql.Statement.CLOSE_CURRENT_RESULT
Specifies that the current ResultSet object is closed when the next ResultSet
object is returned.
java.sql.Statement.KEEP_CURRENT_RESULT
Specifies that the current ResultSet object stays open when the next ResultSet
object is returned.
java.sql.Statement.CLOSE_ALL_RESULTS
Specifies that all open ResultSet objects are closed when the next ResultSet
object is returned.
The following code calls a stored procedure that returns multiple result sets. For
this example, it is assumed that the caller does not know the number of result sets
to be returned or the contents of those result sets. It is also assumed that
autoCommit is false. The numbers to the right of selected statements correspond to
the previously-described steps.

LOBs in SQLJ applications with the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ
With the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, you can retrieve LOB data
into Clob or Blob host expressions or update CLOB, BLOB, or DBCLOB columns
from Clob or Blob host expressions. You can also declare iterators with Clob or
Blob data types to retrieve data from CLOB, BLOB, or DBCLOB columns.
Retrieving or updating LOB data: To retrieve data from a BLOB column, declare
an iterator that includes a data type of Blob or byte[]. To retrieve data from a
CLOB or DBCLOB column, declare an iterator in which the corresponding column
has a Clob data type.
To update data in a BLOB column, use a host expression with data type Blob. To
update data in a CLOB or DBCLOB column, use a host expression with data type
Clob.
Progressive streaming or LOB locators: In SQLJ applications, you can use
progressive streaming, also known as dynamic data format, or LOB locators in the
same way that you use them in JDBC applications.
Java data types for retrieving or updating LOB column data in
SQLJ applications
When the deferPrepares property is set to true, and the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ processes an uncustomized SQLJ statement that includes host
expressions, the driver might need to do extra processing to determine data types.
This extra processing can impact performance.
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to DB2 for
z/OS, when the JDBC driver processes a CALL statement, the driver cannot
determine the parameter data types.
When the JDBC driver cannot immediately determine the data type of a parameter
that is used with a LOB column, you need to choose a parameter data type that is
compatible with the LOB data type.
164
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Input parameters for BLOB columns
For input parameters for BLOB columns, you can use either of the following
techniques:
v Use a java.sql.Blob input variable, which is an exact match for a BLOB column:
java.sql.Blob blobData;
#sql {CALL STORPROC(:IN blobData)};
Before you can use a java.sql.Blob input variable, you need to create a
java.sql.Blob object, and then populate that object.
For example, if you are using IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity on DB2 for z/OS, you can use the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ-only method com.ibm.db2.jcc.t2zos.DB2LobFactory.createBlob to
create a java.sql.Blob object and populate the object with byte[] data:
byte[] byteArray = {0, 1, 2, 3};
java.sql.Blob blobData =
com.ibm.db2.jcc.t2zos.DB2LobFactory.createBlob(byteArray);
v Use an input parameter of type of sqlj.runtime.BinaryStream. A
sqlj.runtime.BinaryStream object is compatible with a BLOB data type. For
example:
java.io.ByteArrayInputStream byteStream =
new java.io.ByteArrayInputStream(byteData);
int numBytes = byteData.length;
sqlj.runtime.BinaryStream binStream =
new sqlj.runtime.BinaryStream(byteStream, numBytes);
#sql {CALL STORPROC(:IN binStream)};
You cannot use this technique for INOUT parameters.
Output parameters for BLOB columns
For output or INOUT parameters for BLOB columns, you can use the following
technique:
v Declare the output parameter or INOUT variable with a java.sql.Blob data type:
java.sql.Blob blobData = null;
#sql CALL STORPROC (:OUT blobData)};
java.sql.Blob blobData = null;
#sql CALL STORPROC (:INOUT blobData)};
Input parameters for CLOB columns
For input parameters for CLOB columns, you can use one of the following
techniques:
v Use a java.sql.Clob input variable, which is an exact match for a CLOB column:
#sql CALL STORPROC(:IN clobData)};
Before you can use a java.sql.Clob input variable, you need to create a
java.sql.Clob object, and then populate that object.
For example, if you are using IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity on DB2 for z/OS, you can use the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ-only method com.ibm.db2.jcc.t2zos.DB2LobFactory.createClob to
create a java.sql.Clob object and populate the object with String data:
String stringVal = "Some Data";
java.sql.Clob clobData =
com.ibm.db2.jcc.t2zos.DB2LobFactory.createClob(stringVal);
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
165
v Use one of the following types of stream IN parameters:
– A sqlj.runtime.CharacterStream input parameter:
java.lang.String charData;
java.io.StringReader reader = new java.io.StringReader(charData);
sqlj.runtime.CharacterStream charStream =
new sqlj.runtime.CharacterStream (reader, charData.length);
#sql {CALL STORPROC(:IN charStream)};
– A sqlj.runtime.UnicodeStream parameter, for Unicode UTF-16 data:
byte[] charDataBytes = charData.getBytes("UnicodeBigUnmarked");
java.io.ByteArrayInputStream byteStream =
new java.io.ByteArrayInputStream(charDataBytes);
sqlj.runtime.UnicodeStream uniStream =
new sqlj.runtime.UnicodeStream(byteStream, charDataBytes.length );
#sql {CALL STORPROC(:IN uniStream)};
– A sqlj.runtime.AsciiStream parameter, for ASCII data:
byte[] charDataBytes = charData.getBytes("US-ASCII");
java.io.ByteArrayInputStream byteStream =
new java.io.ByteArrayInputStream (charDataBytes);
sqlj.runtime.AsciiStream asciiStream =
new sqlj.runtime.AsciiStream (byteStream, charDataBytes.length);
#sql {CALL STORPROC(:IN asciiStream)};
For these calls, you need to specify the exact length of the input data. You
cannot use this technique for INOUT parameters.
v Use a java.lang.String input parameter:
java.lang.String charData;
#sql {CALL STORPROC(:IN charData)};
Output parameters for CLOB columns
For output or INOUT parameters for CLOB columns, you can use one of the
following techniques:
v Use a java.sql.Clob output variable, which is an exact match for a CLOB column:
java.sql.Clob clobData = null;
#sql CALL STORPROC(:OUT clobData)};
v Use a java.lang.String output variable:
java.lang.String charData = null;
#sql CALL STORPROC(:OUT charData)};
This technique should be used only if you know that the length of the retrieved
data is less than or equal to 32KB. Otherwise, the data is truncated.
Output parameters for DBCLOB columns
DBCLOB output or INOUT parameters for stored procedures are not supported.
SQLJ and JDBC in the same application
You can combine SQLJ clauses and JDBC calls in a single program.
To do this effectively, you need to be able to do the following things:
v Use a JDBC Connection to build an SQLJ ConnectionContext, or obtain a JDBC
Connection from an SQLJ ConnectionContext.
v Use an SQLJ iterator to retrieve data from a JDBC ResultSet or generate a JDBC
ResultSet from an SQLJ iterator.
Building an SQLJ ConnectionContext from a JDBC Connection: To do that:
166
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
1. Execute an SQLJ connection declaration clause to create a ConnectionContext
class.
2. Load the driver or obtain a DataSource instance.
3. Invoke the SQLJ DriverManager.getConnection or DataSource.getConnection
method to obtain a JDBC Connection.
4. Invoke the ConnectionContext constructor with the Connection as its argument
to create the ConnectionContext object.
Obtaining a JDBC Connection from an SQLJ ConnectionContext: To do this,
1. Execute an SQLJ connection declaration clause to create a ConnectionContext
class.
2. Load the driver or obtain a DataSource instance.
3. Invoke the ConnectionContext constructor with the URL of the driver and any
other necessary parameters as its arguments to create the ConnectionContext
object.
4. Invoke the JDBC ConnectionContext.getConnection method to create the JDBC
Connection object.
See "Connect to a data source using SQLJ" for more information on SQLJ
connections.
Retrieving JDBC result sets using SQLJ iterators: Use the iterator conversion
statement to manipulate a JDBC result set as an SQLJ iterator. The general form of
an iterator conversion statement is:
#sql iterator={CAST :result-set};
Before you can successfully cast a result set to an iterator, the iterator must
conform to the following rules:
v The iterator must be declared as public.
v If the iterator is a positioned iterator, the number of columns in the result set
must match the number of columns in the iterator. In addition, the data type of
each column in the result set must match the data type of the corresponding
column in the iterator.
v If the iterator is a named iterator, the name of each accessor method must match
the name of a column in the result set. In addition, the data type of the object
that an accessor method returns must match the data type of the corresponding
column in the result set.
The code in Figure 40 on page 168 builds and executes a query using a JDBC call,
executes an iterator conversion statement to convert the JDBC result set to an SQLJ
iterator, and retrieves rows from the result table using the iterator.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming

#sql public iterator ByName(String LastName, Date HireDate);

// Declare object of ByName class
Connection conn=connCtx.getConnection();
// Create JDBC connection
Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
String query = "SELECT LASTNAME, HIREDATE FROM EMPLOYEE";
query+=whereClause;
// Build the query
ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery(query);
#sql [connCtx] nameiter = {CAST :rs};

System.out.println( nameiter.LastName() + " was hired on "
+ nameiter.HireDate());
}

Description
This SQLJ clause creates the named iterator class ByName, which has accessor
methods LastName() and HireDate() that return the data from result table columns
LASTNAME and HIREDATE.
This statement and the following two statements build and prepare a query for
dynamic execution using JDBC.
This JDBC statement executes the SELECT statement and assigns the result table
to result set rs.
This iterator conversion clause converts the JDBC ResultSet rs to SQLJ iterator
nameiter, and the following statements use nameiter to retrieve values from the
result table.
The nameiter.close() method closes the SQLJ iterator and JDBC ResultSet rs.
Generating JDBC ResultSets from SQLJ iterators: Use the getResultSet method to
generate a JDBC ResultSet from an SQLJ iterator. Every SQLJ iterator has a
getResultSet method. After you access the ResultSet that underlies an iterator,
you need to fetch rows using only the ResultSet.
The code in Figure 41 on page 169 generates a positioned iterator for a query,
converts the iterator to a result set, and uses JDBC methods to fetch rows from the
table.

#sql iterator EmpIter(String, java.sql.Date);

Description
This SQLJ clause executes the SELECT statement, constructs an iterator object that
contains the result table for the SELECT statement, and assigns the iterator object
to variable iter.
The getResultSet() method accesses the ResultSet that underlies iterator iter.
The JDBC getString() and getDate() methods retrieve values from the ResultSet.
The next() method moves the cursor to the next row in the ResultSet.
The rs.close() method closes the SQLJ iterator as well as the ResultSet.
Rules and restrictions for using JDBC ResultSets in SQLJ applications: When you
write SQLJ applications that include JDBC result sets, observe the following rules
and restrictions:
v Before you can access the columns of a remote table by name, through either a
named iterator or an iterator that is converted to a JDBC ResultSet object, the
DB2 for z/OS DESCSTAT subsystem parameter must be set to YES.
v You cannot cast a ResultSet to an SQLJ iterator if the ResultSet and the iterator
have different holdability attributes.
A JDBC ResultSet or an SQLJ iterator can remain open after a COMMIT
operation. For a JDBC ResultSet, this characteristic is controlled by the IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ property resultSetHoldability. For an
SQLJ iterator, this characteristic is controlled by the with holdability parameter
of the iterator declaration. Casting a ResultSet that has holdability to an SQLJ
iterator that does not, or casting a ResultSet that does not have holdability to an
SQLJ iterator that does, is not supported.
v Close the iterator or the underlying ResultSet object as soon as the program no
longer uses the iterator or ResultSet, and before the end of the program.
Closing the iterator also closes the ResultSet object. Closing the ResultSet object
also closes the iterator object. In general, it is best to close the object that is used
last.
v For the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, which supports scrollable
iterators and scrollable and updatable ResultSet objects, the following
restrictions apply:
– Scrollable iterators have the same restrictions as their underlying JDBC
ResultSet objects.
– You cannot cast a JDBC ResultSet that is not updatable to an SQLJ iterator
that is updatable.

Controlling the execution of SQL statements in SQLJ
You can use selected methods of the SQLJ ExecutionContext class to control or
monitor the execution of SQL statements.
Procedure
To use ExecutionContext methods, follow these steps:
1. Acquire the default execution context from the connection context.
There are two ways to acquire an execution context:
v Acquire the default execution context from the connection context. For
example:
ExecutionContext execCtx = connCtx.getExecutionContext();
v Create a new execution context by invoking the constructor for
ExecutionContext. For example:
ExecutionContext execCtx=new ExecutionContext();
2. Associate the execution context with an SQL statement.
To do that, specify an execution context after the connection context in the
execution clause that contains the SQL statement.
3. Invoke ExecutionContext methods.
Some ExecutionContext methods are applicable before the associated SQL
statement is executed, and some are applicable only after their associated SQL
statement is executed.
For example, you can use method getUpdateCount to count the number of rows
that are deleted by a DELETE statement after you execute the DELETE
statement.
Example
The following code demonstrates how to acquire an execution context, and then
use the getUpdateCount method on that execution context to determine the number
of rows that were deleted by a DELETE statement. The numbers to the right of
selected statements correspond to the previously-described steps.
ExecutionContext execCtx=new ExecutionContext();
1
#sql [connCtx, execCtx] {DELETE FROM EMPLOYEE WHERE SALARY > 10000}; 2
System.out.println("Deleted " + execCtx.getUpdateCount() + " rows"); 3

ROWIDs in SQLJ with the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ
DB2 for z/OS and DB2 for i support the ROWID data type for a column in a table.
A ROWID is a value that uniquely identifies a row in a table.
170
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Although IBM Informix also supports rowids, those rowids have the INTEGER
data type. You can select an IBM Informix rowid column into a variable with a
four-byte integer data type.
If you use columns with the ROWID data type in SQLJ programs, you need to
customize those programs.
JDBC 4.0 includes interface java.sql.RowId that you can use in iterators and in
CALL statement parameters. If you do not have JDBC 4.0, you can use the IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ-only class com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2RowID. For
an iterator, you can also use the byte[] object type to retrieve ROWID values.
The following code shows an example of an iterator that is used to select values
from a ROWID column:
#sql iterator PosIter(int,String,java.sql.RowId);
// Declare positioned iterator
// for retrieving ITEM_ID (INTEGER),
// ITEM_FORMAT (VARCHAR), and ITEM_ROWID (ROWID)
// values from table ROWIDTAB
{
PosIter positrowid;
// Declare object of PosIter class
java.sql.RowId rowid = null;
int id = 0;
String i_fmt = null;
// Declare host expressions
#sql [ctxt] positrowid =
{SELECT ITEM_ID, ITEM_FORMAT, ITEM_ROWID FROM ROWIDTAB
WHERE ITEM_ID=3};
// Assign the result table of the SELECT
// to iterator object positrowid
#sql {FETCH :positrowid INTO :id, :i_fmt, :rowid};
// Retrieve the first row
while (!positrowid.endFetch())
// Check whether the FETCH returned a row
{System.out.println("Item ID " + id + " Item format " +
i_fmt + " Item ROWID ");
MyUtilities.printBytes(rowid.getBytes());
// Use the getBytes method to
// convert the value to bytes for printing.
// Call a user-defined method called
// printBytes (not shown) to print
// the value.
#sql {FETCH :positrowid INTO :id, :i_fmt, :rowid};
// Retrieve the next row
}
positrowid.close();
// Close the iterator
}
Figure 42. Example of using an iterator to retrieve ROWID values
The following code shows an example of calling a stored procedure that takes
three ROWID parameters: an IN parameter, an OUT parameter, and an INOUT
parameter.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
171
java.sql.RowId in_rowid = rowid;
java.sqlRowId out_rowid = null;
java.sql.RowId inout_rowid = rowid;
// Declare an IN, OUT, and
// INOUT ROWID parameter
...
#sql [myConnCtx] {CALL SP_ROWID(:IN in_rowid,
:OUT out_rowid,
:INOUT inout_rowid)};
// Call the stored procedure
System.out.println("Parameter values from SP_ROWID call: ");
System.out.println("OUT parameter value ");
MyUtilities.printBytes(out_rowid.getBytes());
// Use the getBytes method to
// convert the value to bytes for printing
// Call a user-defined method called
// printBytes (not shown) to print
// the value.
System.out.println("INOUT parameter value ");
MyUtilities.printBytes(inout_rowid.getBytes());

TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE values in SQLJ applications
DB2 for z/OS supports table columns with the TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE
data type. IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports update into and
retrieval from a column with the TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE data type in
SQLJ programs.
When you update or retrieve a TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE value, or call a
stored procedure with a TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE parameter, you need to
use host variables that are com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp objects to retain the time
zone information. If you use java.sql.Timestamp objects to pass TIMESTAMP
WITH TIME ZONE values to and from the data server, you lose the time zone
information.
Because the com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp class is a IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ-only class, if you run an uncustomized SQLJ application that uses
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp objects, the application receives an SQLException.
Examples
Suppose that table TSTABLE has a single column, TSCOL, which has data type
TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE. The following code assigns a timestamp value
with a time zone to the column, and retrieves the value from the column.
#sql iterator TSIter(com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp TSVar);
{
...
java.util.TimeZone esttz = java.util.TimeZone.getTimeZone("EST");
// Set the time zone to UTC-5
java.util.Calendar estcal= java.util.Calendar.getInstance(esttz);
// Create a calendar instance
// with the EST time zone
java.sql.Timestamp ts =
java.sql.Timestamp.valueOf("2009-02-27 21:22:33.444444");
// Initialize a timestamp object
// with the datetime value that you
// want to put in the table
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp dbts =
172
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
new com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp(ts,estcal);
// Create a datetime object that
// includes the time zone
#sql[ctx] {INSERT INTO TSTABLE (TSCOL) VALUES (:dbts)};
// Insert the datetime object in
// the table
#sql[ctx] {COMMIT};
TSIter iter = null;
#sql [ctx] iter = {SELECT TSCOL FROM TSTABLE};
// Assign the result table of the SELECT
while (iter.next()) {
System.out.println ("Timestamp = " +
((com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp)iter.TSVar()).toDBString(true));
// Use accessor method TSVar to retrieve
// the TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE value,
// cast it to a DBTimestamp value,
// and retrieve its string representation.
// Value retrieved:
// 2009-02-27 21:22:33.444444-05:00
}
}
Suppose that stored procedure TSSP has a single INOUT parameter, TSPARM,
which has data type TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE. The following code calls
the stored procedure with a timestamp value that includes a time zone, and
retrieves a parameter value with a timestamp value that includes a time zone.
{
...
java.util.TimeZone esttz = java.util.TimeZone.getTimeZone("EST");
// Set the time zone to UTC-5
java.util.Calendar estcal= java.util.Calendar.getInstance(esttz);
// Create a calendar instance
// with the EST time zone
java.sql.Timestamp ts =
java.sql.Timestamp.valueOf("2009-02-27 21:22:33.444444");
// Initialize a timestamp object
// with the timestamp value that you
// want to pass to the stored procedure
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp dbts =
new com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp(ts,estcal);
// Create a timestamp object that
// includes the time zone to
// pass to the stored procedure
#sql[ctx] { CALL TSSP (:INOUT dbts) };
System.out.println ("Output parameter: " + dbts.toDBString (true));
// Call the stored procedure with
// the timestamp value as input,
// and retrieve a timestamp value
// with a time zone in the same
// parameter
}
Distinct types in SQLJ applications
In an SQLJ program, you can create a distinct type using the CREATE DISTINCT
TYPE statement in an executable clause.
You can also use CREATE TABLE in an executable clause to create a table that
includes a column of that type. When you retrieve data from a column of that
type, or update a column of that type, you use Java host variables or expressions
with data types that correspond to the built-in types on which the distinct types
are based.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
173
The following example creates a distinct type that is based on an INTEGER type,
creates a table with a column of that type, inserts a row into the table, and
retrieves the row from the table:
String empNumVar;
int shoeSizeVar;
...
#sql [myConnCtx] {CREATE DISTINCT TYPE SHOESIZE AS INTEGER WITH COMPARISONS};
// Create distinct type
#sql [myConnCtx] {COMMIT}; // Commit the create
#sql [myConnCtx] {CREATE TABLE EMP_SHOE
(EMPNO CHAR(6), EMP_SHOE_SIZE SHOESIZE)};
// Create table using distinct type
#sql [myConnCtx] {COMMIT}; // Commit the create
#sql [myConnCtx] {INSERT INTO EMP_SHOE
VALUES(’000010’,6)};
// Insert a row in the table
#sql [myConnCtx] {COMMIT}; // Commit the INSERT
#sql [myConnCtx] {SELECT EMPNO, EMP_SHOE_SIZE
INTO :empNumVar, :shoeSizeVar
FROM EMP_SHOE};
// Retrieve the row
System.out.println("Employee number: " + empNumVar +
" Shoe size: " + shoeSizeVar);

Savepoints in SQLJ applications
Under the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, you can include any form
of the SQL SAVEPOINT statement in your SQLJ program.
An SQL savepoint represents the state of data and schemas at a particular point in
time within a unit of work. SQL statements exist to set a savepoint, release a
savepoint, and restore data and schemas to the state that the savepoint represents.
The following example demonstrates how to set a savepoint, roll back to the
savepoint, and release the savepoint.

#sql context Ctx;
// Create connection context class Ctx

XML data in SQLJ applications
In SQLJ applications, you can store data in XML columns and retrieve data from
XML columns.
In DB2 tables, the XML built-in data type is used to store XML data in a column as
a structured set of nodes in a tree format.
SQLJ applications can send XML data to the data server or retrieve XML data from
the data server in one of the following forms:
v As textual XML data
v As binary XML data (data that is in the Extensible Dynamic Binary XML DB2
Client/Server Binary XML Format), if the data server supports it
In SQLJ applications, you can:
v Store an entire XML document in an XML column using INSERT, UPDATE, or
MERGE statements.
v Retrieve an entire XML document from an XML column using single-row
SELECT statements or iterators.
v Retrieve a sequence from a document in an XML column by using the SQL
XMLQUERY function to retrieve the sequence in the database, and then using
single-row SELECT statements or iterators to retrieve the serialized XML string
data into an application variable.
v You can update or retrieve XML data as textual XML data. Alternatively, for
connections to a data server that supports binary XML data, you can update or
retrieve XML data as binary XML data.
For data retrieval, you use the Datasource or Connection property xmlFormat to
control whether the format of the retrieved data is textual XML or binary XML.
For update of data in XML columns, xmlFormat has no effect. If the input data
is binary XML data, and the data server does not support binary XML data, the
input data is converted to textual XML data. Otherwise, no conversion occurs.
The format of XML data is transparent to the application. Storage and retrieval
of binary XML data on a DB2 for z/OS data server requires version 4.9 or later
of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ. Storage and retrieval of
binary XML data on a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows data server requires
version 4.11 or later of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
175
JDBC 4.0 java.sql.SQLXML objects can be used to retrieve and update data in XML
columns. Invocations of metadata methods, such as
ResultSetMetaData.getColumnType return the integer value java.sql.Types.SQLXML
for an XML column type.
Related concepts:
“XML data retrieval in SQLJ applications” on page 178
“XML column updates in SQLJ applications”
XML column updates in SQLJ applications
In an SQLJ application, you can update or insert data into XML columns of a table
at a DB2 data server using XML textual data. You can update or insert data into
XML columns of a table using binary XML data (data that is in the Extensible
Dynamic Binary XML DB2 Client/Server Binary XML Format), if the data server
supports binary XML data.
The host expression data types that you can use to update XML columns are:
v java.sql.SQLXML (requires an SDK for Java Version 6 or later, and the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 4.0 or later)
v com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml (deprecated)
v String
v byte
v Blob
v Clob
v sqlj.runtime.AsciiStream
v sqlj.runtime.BinaryStream
v sqlj.runtime.CharacterStream
The encoding of XML data can be derived from the data itself, which is known as
internally encoded data, or from external sources, which is known as externally
encoded data. XML data that is sent to the database server as binary data is treated
as internally encoded data. XML data that is sent to the data source as character
data is treated as externally encoded data. The external encoding is the default
encoding for the JVM.
External encoding for Java applications is always Unicode encoding.
Externally encoded data can have internal encoding. That is, the data might be sent
to the data source as character data, but the data contains encoding information.
The data source handles incompatibilities between internal and external encoding
as follows:
v If the data source is DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, the data source
generates an error if the external and internal encoding are incompatible, unless
the external and internal encoding are Unicode. If the external and internal
encoding are Unicode, the data source ignores the internal encoding.
v If the data source is DB2 for z/OS, the data source ignores internal encoding.
Character data in XML columns is stored in UTF-8 encoding.
Example: Suppose that you use the following statement to insert data from String
host expression xmlString into an XML column in a table. xmlString is a character
type, so its external encoding is used, whether or not it has an internal encoding
specification.
#sql [ctx] {INSERT INTO CUSTACC VALUES (1, :xmlString)};
176
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Example: Suppose that you copy the data from xmlString into a byte array with
CP500 encoding. The data contains an XML declaration with an encoding
declaration for CP500. Then you insert the data from the byte[] host expression
into an XML column in a table.
byte[] xmlBytes = xmlString.getBytes("CP500");
#sql[ctx] {INSERT INTO CUSTACC VALUES (4, :xmlBytes)};
A byte string is considered to be internally encoded data. The data is converted
from its internal encoding scheme to UTF-8, if necessary, and stored in its
hierarchical format on the data source.
Example: Suppose that you copy the data from xmlString into a byte array with
US-ASCII encoding. Then you construct an sqlj.runtime.AsciiStream host
expression, and insert data from the sqlj.runtime.AsciiStream host expression into
an XML column in a table on a data source.
byte[] b = xmlString.getBytes("US-ASCII");
java.io.ByteArrayInputStream xmlAsciiInputStream =
new java.io.ByteArrayInputStream(b);
sqlj.runtime.AsciiStream sqljXmlAsciiStream =
new sqlj.runtime.AsciiStream(xmlAsciiInputStream, b.length);
#sql[ctx] {INSERT INTO CUSTACC VALUES (4, :sqljXmlAsciiStream)};
sqljXmlAsciiStream is a stream type, so its internal encoding is used. The data is
converted from its internal encoding to UTF-8 encoding and stored in its
hierarchical form on the data source.
Example: sqlj.runtime.CharacterStream host expression: Suppose that you
construct an sqlj.runtime.CharacterStream host expression, and insert data from the
sqlj.runtime.CharacterStream host expression into an XML column in a table.
java.io.StringReader xmlReader =
new java.io.StringReader(xmlString);
sqlj.runtime.CharacterStream sqljXmlCharacterStream =
new sqlj.runtime.CharacterStream(xmlReader, xmlString.length());
#sql [ctx] {INSERT INTO CUSTACC VALUES (4, :sqljXmlCharacterStream)};
sqljXmlCharacterStream is a character type, so its external encoding is used,
whether or not it has an internal encoding specification.
Example: Suppose that you retrieve a document from an XML column into a
java.sql.SQLXML host expression, and insert the data into an XML column in a
table.
java.sql.ResultSet rs = s.executeQuery ("SELECT * FROM CUSTACC");
rs.next();
java.sql.SQLXML xmlObject = (java.sql.SQLXML)rs.getObject(2);
#sql [ctx] {INSERT INTO CUSTACC VALUES (6, :xmlObject)};
After you retrieve the data it is still in UTF-8 encoding, so when you insert the
data into another XML column, no conversion occurs.
Example: Suppose that you retrieve a document from an XML column into a
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml host expression, and insert the data into an XML column
in a table.
java.sql.ResultSet rs = s.executeQuery ("SELECT * FROM CUSTACC");
rs.next();
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml xmlObject = (com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml)rs.getObject(2);
#sql [ctx] {INSERT INTO CUSTACC VALUES (6, :xmlObject)};
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
177
After you retrieve the data it is still in UTF-8 encoding, so when you insert the
data into another XML column, no conversion occurs.
XML data retrieval in SQLJ applications
When you retrieve data from XML columns of a database table in an SQLJ
application, the output data must be explicitly or implicitly serialized.
The host expression or iterator data types that you can use to retrieve data from
XML columns are:
v java.sql.SQLXML (requires an SDK for Java Version 6 or later, and the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 4.0 or later)
v com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml (deprecated)
v String
v byte[]
v sqlj.runtime.AsciiStream
v sqlj.runtime.BinaryStream
v sqlj.runtime.CharacterStream
If the application does not call the XMLSERIALIZE function before data retrieval,
the data is converted from UTF-8 to the external application encoding for the
character data types, or the internal encoding for the binary data types. No XML
declaration is added. If the host expression is an object of the java.sql.SQLXML or
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml type, you need to call an additional method to retrieve
the data from this object. The method that you call determines the encoding of the
output data and whether an XML declaration with an encoding specification is
added.
The following table lists the methods that you can call to retrieve data from a
java.sql.SQLXML or a com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml object, and the corresponding
output data types and type of encoding in the XML declarations.

Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
If the application executes the XMLSERIALIZE function on the data that is to be
returned, after execution of the function, the data has the data type that is specified
in the XMLSERIALIZE function, not the XML data type. Therefore, the driver
handles the data as the specified type and ignores any internal encoding
declarations.
Example: Suppose that you retrieve data from an XML column into a String host
expression.
#sql iterator XmlStringIter (int, String);
#sql [ctx] siter = {SELECT C1, CADOC from CUSTACC};
#sql {FETCH :siter INTO :row, :outString};
The String type is a character type, so the data is converted from UTF-8 to the
external encoding, which is the default JVM encoding, and returned without any
XML declaration.
Example: Suppose that you retrieve data from an XML column into a byte[] host
expression.
#sql iterator XmlByteArrayIter (int, byte[]);
XmlByteArrayIter biter = null;
#sql [ctx] biter = {SELECT c1, CADOC from CUSTACC};
#sql {FETCH :biter INTO :row, :outBytes};
The byte[] type is a binary type, so no data conversion from UTF-8 encoding
occurs, and the data is returned without any XML declaration.
Example: Suppose that you retrieve a document from an XML column into a
java.sql.SQLXML host expression, but you need the data in a binary stream.
#sql iterator SqlXmlIter (int, java.sql.SQLXML);
SqlXmlIter SQLXMLiter = null;
java.sql.SQLXML outSqlXml = null;
#sql [ctx] SqlXmlIter = {SELECT c1, CADOC from CUSTACC};
#sql {FETCH :SqlXmlIter INTO :row, :outSqlXml};
java.io.InputStream XmlStream = outSqlXml.getBinaryStream();
The FETCH statement retrieves the data into the SQLXML object in UTF-8
encoding. The SQLXML.getBinaryStream stores the data in a binary stream.
Example: Suppose that you retrieve a document from an XML column into a
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml host expression, but you need the data in a byte string
with an XML declaration that includes an internal encoding specification for
UTF-8.
#sql iterator DB2XmlIter (int, com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml);
DB2XmlIter db2xmliter = null;
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Xml outDB2Xml = null;
#sql [ctx] db2xmliter = {SELECT c1, CADOC from CUSTACC};
#sql {FETCH :db2xmliter INTO :row, :outDB2Xml};
byte[] byteArray = outDB2XML.getDB2XmlBytes("UTF-8");
The FETCH statement retrieves the data into the DB2Xml object in UTF-8
encoding. The getDB2XmlBytes method with the UTF-8 argument adds an XML
declaration with a UTF-8 encoding specification and stores the data in a byte array.
XMLCAST in SQLJ applications
Before you can use XMLCAST to cast a host variable to the XML data type in an
SQLJ application, you need to cast the host variable to the corresponding SQL data
type.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
179
Example: The following code demonstrates a situation in which it is necessary to
cast a String host variable to an SQL character type, such as VARCHAR, before
you use XMLCAST to cast the value to the XML data type.
String xmlresult = null;
String varchar_hv = "San Jose";
...
#sql [con] {SELECT XMLCAST(CAST(:varchar_hv AS VARCHAR(32)) AS XML) INTO
:xmlresult FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1};
Inserting data from file reference variables into tables in SQLJ
applications
You can use file reference variable objects with IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS Version 9 or later to stream LOB or
XML input data.
Before you begin
You need to store your LOB or XML input data in HFS files.
About this task
Use of file reference variables eliminates the need to materialize the LOB or XML
data in memory before the data is stored in tables.
Procedure
To use file reference variables to store LOB or XML data in tables, follow these
steps:
1. Execute constructors for file reference variable objects of the appropriate types.
The following table lists the types of data in the input files and the appropriate
constructors.
Input data type
Constructor
BLOB
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BlobFileReference
CLOB
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2ClobFileReference
XML AS BLOB
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2XmlAsBlobFileReference
XML AS CLOB
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2XmlAsClobFileReference
The first parameter in each constructor must specify the absolute path name for
an existing HFS file.
2. Execute an INSERT statement with the file reference variable object as the input
host variable.
Example
Suppose that a table is defined like this:
CREATE TABLE TEST02TB (
RECID INTEGER,
CLOBCOL CLOB(100M),
BLOBCOL(200M),
XMLCOL XML)
180
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
The following code uses file reference variables to insert a CLOB value, a BLOB
value, and an XML AS BLOB value into the table. The numbers to the right of
selected statements correspond to the previously described steps.
...
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2ClobFileReference clobFileRef =
1
new com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2ClobFileReference("/u/usrt001/jcc/test/TEXT.FILE","Cp037");
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BlobFileReference blobFileRef =
new com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BlobFileReference("/u/usrt001/jcc/test/BINARY.FILE");
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2XmlAsBlobFileReference xmlAsBlobFileRef =
new com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2XmlAsBlobFileReference(
"/u/usrt001/jcc/test/XML.FILE");
// Execute constructors for the file reference
// variable objects
#sql [ctx] {"INSERT INTO TEST03TB(RECID,CLOBCOL,BLOBCOL,XMLCOL)
2
VALUES(’003’,:clobFileRef,:blobFileRef,:xmlAsBlobFileRef)};
SQLJ utilization of SDK for Java Version 5 function
Your SQLJ applications can use a number of functions that were introduced with
the SDK for Java Version 5.
Static import
The static import construct lets you access static members without qualifying those
members with the name of the class to which they belong. For SQLJ applications,
this means that you can use static members in host expressions without qualifying
them.
Example: Suppose that you want to declare a host expression of this form:
double r = cos(PI * E);
cos, PI, and E are members of the java.lang.Math class. To declare r without
explicitly qualifying cos, PI, and E, include the following static import statement in
your program:
import static java.lang.Math.*;
Annotations
Java annotations are a means for adding metadata to Java programs that can also
affect the way that those programs are treated by tools and libraries. Annotations
are declared with annotation type declarations, which are similar to interface
declarations. Java annotations can appear in the following types of classes or
interfaces:
v Class declaration
v Interface declaration
v Nested class declaration
v Nested interface declaration
You cannot include Java annotations directly in SQLJ programs, but you can
include annotations in Java source code, and then include that source code in your
SQLJ programs.
Example: Suppose that you declare the following marker annotation in a program
called MyAnnot.java:
public @interface MyAnot { }
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
181
You also declare the following marker annotation in a program called
MyAnnot2.java:
public @interface MyAnot2 { }
You can then use those annotations in an SQLJ program:
// Class annotations
@MyAnot2 public @MyAnot class TestAnnotation
{
// Field annotation
@MyAnot
private static final int field1 = 0;
// Constructor annotation
@MyAnot2 public @MyAnot TestAnnotation () { }
// Method annotation
@MyAnot
public static void main (String a[])
{
TestAnnotation TestAnnotation_o = new TestAnnotation();
TestAnnotation_o.runThis();
}
// Inner class annotation
public static @MyAnot class TestAnotherInnerClass { }
// Inner interface annotation
public static @MyAnot interface TestAnotInnerInterface { }
}
Enumerated types
An enumerated type is a data type that consists of a set of ordered values. The
SDK for Java version 5 introduces the enum type for enumerated types.
You can include enums in the following places:
v In Java source files (.java files) that you include in an SQLJ program
v In SQLJ class declarations
Example: The TestEnum.sqlj class declaration includes an enum type:
public class TestEnum2
{
public enum Color {
RED,ORANGE,YELLOW,GREEN,BLUE,INDIGO,VIOLET}
Color color;
...
// Get the value of color
switch (color) {
case RED:
System.out.println("Red is at one end of the spectrum.");
#sql[ctx] { INSERT INTO MYTABLE VALUES (:color) };
break;
case VIOLET:
System.out.println("Violet is on the other end of the spectrum.");
break;
case ORANGE:
case YELLOW:
case GREEN:
case BLUE:
case INDIGO:
System.out.println("Everything else is in the middle.");
break;
}
182
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Generics
You can use generics in your Java programs to assign a type to a Java collection.
The SQLJ translator tolerates Java generic syntax. Examples of generics that you
can use in SQLJ programs are:
v A List of List objects:
List <List<String>> strList2 = new ArrayList<List<String>>();
v A HashMap in which the key/value pair has the String type:
Map <String,String> map = new HashMap<String,String>();
v A method that takes a List with elements of any type:
public void mthd(List <?> obj) {
...
}
Although you can use generics in SQLJ host variables, the value of doing so is
limited because the SQLJ translator cannot determine the types of those host
variables.
Enhanced for loop
The enhanced for lets you specify that a set of operations is performed on each
member of a collection or array. You can use the iterator in the enhanced for loop
in host expressions.
Example: INSERT each of the items in array names into table TAB.
String[] names = {"ABC","DEF","GHI"};
for (String n : names)
{
#sql {INSERT INTO TAB (VARCHARCOL) VALUES(:n) };
}
Varargs
Varargs make it easier to pass an arbitrary number of values to a method. A Vararg
in the last argument position of a method declaration indicates that the last
arguments are an array or a sequence of arguments. An SQLJ program can use the
passed arguments in host expressions.
Example: Pass an arbitrary number of parameters of type Object, to a method that
inserts each parameter value into table TAB.
public void runThis(Object... objects) throws SQLException
{
for (Object obj : objects)
{
#sql { INSERT INTO TAB (VARCHARCOL) VALUES(:obj) };
}
}
Transaction control in SQLJ applications
In SQLJ applications, as in other types of SQL applications, transaction control
involves explicitly or implicitly committing and rolling back transactions, and
setting the isolation level for transactions.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
183
Setting the isolation level for an SQLJ transaction
To set the isolation level for a unit of work within an SQLJ program, use the SET
TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL clause.
About this task
The following table shows the values that you can specify in the SET
TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL clause and their DB2 equivalents.
Table 30. Equivalent SQLJ and DB2 isolation levels
SET TRANSACTION value
DB2 isolation level
SERIALIZABLE
Repeatable read
REPEATABLE READ
Read stability
READ COMMITTED
Cursor stability
READ UNCOMMITTED
Uncommitted read
The isolation level affects the underlying JDBC connection as well as the SQLJ
connection.
Related concepts:
“JDBC connection objects” on page 26
Committing or rolling back SQLJ transactions
If you disable autocommit for an SQLJ connection, you need to perform explicit
commit or rollback operations. You do this using execution clauses that contain the
SQL COMMIT or ROLLBACK statements.
Example
To commit a transaction in an SQLJ program, use a statement like this:
#sql [myConnCtx] {COMMIT};
To roll back a transaction in an SQLJ program, use a statement like this:
#sql [myConnCtx] {ROLLBACK};

Handling SQL errors and warnings in SQLJ applications
SQLJ clauses throw SQLExceptions when SQL errors occur, but not when most
SQL warnings occur.
About this task
SQLJ generates an SQLException under the following circumstances:
v When any SQL statement returns a negative SQL error code
v When a SELECT INTO SQL statement returns a +100 SQL error code
You need to explicitly check for other SQL warnings.
184
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Procedure
v For SQL error handling, include try/catch blocks around SQLJ statements.
v For SQL warning handling, invoke the getWarnings method after every SQLJ
statement.
Handling SQL errors in an SQLJ application
SQLJ clauses use the JDBC class java.sql.SQLException for error handling.
Procedure
To handle SQL errors in SQLJ applications, following these steps:
1. Import the java.sql.SQLException class.
2. Use the Java error handling try/catch blocks to modify program flow when an
SQL error occurs.
3. Obtain error information from the SQLException.
You can use the getErrorCode method to retrieve SQL error codes and the
getSQLState method to retrieve SQLSTATEs.
If you are using the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, obtain
additional information from the SQLException by casting it to a DB2Diagnosable
object, in the same way that you obtain this information in a JDBC application.
Example
The following code prints out the SQL error that occurred if a SELECT statement
fails.
try {
#sql [ctxt] {SELECT LASTNAME INTO :empname
FROM EMPLOYEE WHERE EMPNO=’000010’};
}
catch(SQLException e) {
System.out.println("Error code returned: " + e.getErrorCode());
}
Related tasks:
“Handling an SQLException under the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ” on page 117
Handling SQL warnings in an SQLJ application
Other than a +100 SQL error code on a SELECT INTO statement, warnings from
the data server do not throw SQLExceptions. To handle warnings from the data
server, you need to give the program access to the java.sql.SQLWarning class.
About this task
If you want to retrieve data-server-specific information about a warning, you also
need to give the program access to the com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Diagnosable interface
and the com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Sqlca class.
Procedure
To retrieve data-server-specific information about a warning:
1. Set up an execution context for that SQL clause. See "Control the execution of
SQL statements in SQLJ" for information on how to set up an execution context.
Chapter 4. SQLJ application programming
185
2. To check for a warning from the data server, invoke the getWarnings method
after you execute an SQLJ clause.
getWarnings returns the first SQLWarning object that an SQL statement
generates. Subsequent SQLWarning objects are chained to the first one.
3. To retrieve data-server-specific information from the SQLWarning object with the
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, follow the instructions in "Handle
an SQLException under the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ".
Example
The following example demonstrates how to retrieve an SQLWarning object for an
SQL clause with execution context execCtx. The numbers to the right of selected
statements correspond to the previously-described steps.
ExecutionContext execCtx=myConnCtx.getExecutionContext();
1
// Get default execution context from
// connection context
SQLWarning sqlWarn;
...
#sql [myConnCtx,execCtx] {SELECT LASTNAME INTO :empname
FROM EMPLOYEE WHERE EMPNO=’000010’};
if ((sqlWarn = execCtx.getWarnings()) != null)
2
System.out.println("SQLWarning " + sqlWarn);

Closing the connection to a data source in an SQLJ application
When you have finished with a connection to a data source, you need to close the
connection to the data source. Doing so releases the DB2 and SQLJ resources for
the associated ConnectionContext object immediately.
About this task
If you do not close a ConnectionContext object after you use it, unexpected
behavior might occur if a Java finalizer closes the ConnectionContext object.
Examples of the unexpected behavior are:
v An ObjectClosedException on the underlying ResultSet or Statement objects
v Agent hangs in DB2 stored procedures
Procedure
To close the connection to the data source, use one of the ConnectionContext.close
methods.
v If you execute ConnectionContext.close() or
ConnectionContext.close(ConnectionContext.CLOSE_CONNECTION), the connection
context, as well as the connection to the data source, are closed.
v If you execute ConnectionContext.close(ConnectionContext.KEEP_CONNECTION)
the connection context is closed, but the connection to the data source is not.
Example
The following code closes the connection context, but does not close the connection
to the data source.
186
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
...
ctx = new EzSqljctx(con0);
// Create a connection context object
// from JDBC connection con0
...
// Perform various SQL operations
EzSqljctx.close(ConnectionContext.KEEP_CONNECTION);
// Close the connection context but keep
// the connection to the data source open

Like stored procedures and user-defined functions in any other language, Java
stored procedures and user-defined functions are programs that can contain SQL
statements. You invoke Java stored procedures from a client program that is
written in any supported language.
The following topics contain information that is specific to defining and writing
Java user-defined functions and stored procedures.

Setting up the environment for Java routines
Before you can run Java routines, you need to set up a WLM environment and set
Java environment variables.
Before you begin
|
|
|
|
|
|
|
|
|
Before you can prepare and run Java routines, you need to satisfy the following
prerequisites:
v Java 2 Technology Edition, V5 or later.
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports 31-bit or 64-bit Java
routines. For 64-bit Java routines, you need Java 2 Technology Edition, V6 or
later.
v TCP/IP
TCP/IP is required on the client and all database servers to which you connect.
v The 4.xx version of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ that matches
the DB2 for z/OS version.
If you are migrating from a previous release of DB2 for z/OS, you need to
install the corresponding version of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ.
About this task
The steps in this ask are necessary for preparing and running Java routines.
© Copyright IBM Corp. 1998, 2013
189
If you plan to use IBM Optim Development Studio to prepare and run your Java
routines, see the information on developing database routines in the Integrated
Data Management Information Center, at the following URL:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/idm/v2r1/index.jsp
Procedure
To set up the environment for running Java routines, you need to perform these
tasks:
1. Ensure that your operating system, SDK for Java, and the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ are at the correct levels, and that you have installed
all prerequisite products.
Important: If you have migrated the DB2 subsystem from a previous release of
DB2 for z/OS, your existing Java stored procedures and user-defined function
no longer work with the previous release of the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ and the current release of DB2 for z/OS. You need to install the
version of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ that matches the
DB2 for z/OS release level, and update the WLM-managed stored procedure
address space configuration and JAVAENV data set to use the current driver.
2. Create the Workload Manager for z/OS (WLM) application environment for
running the routines.
3. Set up the run-time environment for Java routines, which includes setting
environment variables.
Setting up the WLM application environment for Java routines
You need different WLM application environments for Java routines from the
WLM application environments that you use for other routines.
About this task
Setting up a WLM environment for Java routines involves the same basic steps as
setting up a WLM environment for other routines.
Procedure
1. Create a WLM environment startup procedure for Java routines.
2. Define the WLM environment to WLM.
WLM address space startup procedure for Java routines
The WLM address space startup procedure for Java routines requires extra DD
statements that other routines do not need.
The following figure shows an example of a startup procedure for an address
space in which Java routines can run. The JAVAENV DD statement indicates to
DB2 that the WLM environment is for Java routines.

v If your stored procedure address space runs routines in 31-bit Java virtual
machines (JVMs), the recommended NUMTCB value is 5. For testing a Java
stored procedure, NUMTCB=1 is recommended. With NUMTCB=1, only one
JVM is started, so refreshing the WLM environment after you change the stored
procedure takes less time.
If your stored procedure address space runs routines in a 64-bit, multi-threaded
environment, the recommended NUMTCB value is 25. The NUMTCB value
specifies the number of concurrent stored procedure executions within the
single JVM that runs in the stored procedure address space.
2
3
4
v Change the MNSPAS value to the minimum number of stored procedure
address spaces that WLM starts and maintains. Valid values are 0 to 50. If you
specify 0, WLM starts and shuts down stored procedure address spaces as
applications require them. Specify a value of greater than 0 if the overhead of
starting and shutting down stored procedure address spaces and JVMs makes
your response time unacceptable.
DSNX9WLM is the program that is executed to run stored procedures in a 31-bit
stored procedure environment. To run Java routines in a 64-bit, multi-threaded
environment, change DSNX9WLM to DSNX9WJM.
JAVAENV specifies a data set that contains Language Environment® run-time
options for Java stored procedures. The presence of this DD statement indicates to
DB2 that the WLM environment is for Java routines. This data set must contain
the environment variable JAVA_HOME. This environment variable indicates to
DB2 that the WLM environment is for Java routines. JAVA_HOME also specifies
the highest-level directory in the set of directories that contain the SDK for Java.
Specifies a data set into which DB2 puts information that you can use to debug
your stored procedure. The information that DB2 collects is for assistance in
debugging setup problems, and should be used only under the direction of IBM
Software Support. You should comment out this DD statement during production.

Runtime environment for Java routines
For Java routines, the startup procedure for the stored procedure address space
contains a JAVAENV DD statement. This statement specifies a data set that
contains Language Environment runtime options for the routines that run in the
stored procedure address space.
Create the data set for the runtime options with the characteristics that are listed in
the following table.
Table 31. Data set characteristics for the JAVAENV data set
Primary space allocation
1 block
Secondary space allocation
1 block
Record format
VB
Record length
255
Block size
4096
After you create the data set, edit it to insert a Language Environment options
string, which has this form:
,
ENVAR( "
environment-variable
=
setting
"
),
XPLINK(ON),
MSGFILE(
,
ddname
,
recfm
,
lrecl
,
blksize
)
NOENQ
ENQ
The maximum length of the Language Environment runtime options string in a
JAVAENV data set for Java stored procedures is 245 bytes. If you exceed the
maximum length, DB2 truncates the contents but does not issue a message. If you
enter the contents of the JAVAENV data set on more than one line, DB2
concatenates the lines to form the runtime options string. The runtime options
string can contain no leading or trailing blanks. Within the string, only blanks that
are valid within an option are permitted.
If your environment variable list is long enough that the JAVAENV content is
greater than 245 bytes, you can put the environment variable list in a separate data
set in a separate file, and use the environment variable _CEE_ENVFILE to point to
that file.
The descriptions of the parameters are:
Chapter 5. Java stored procedures and user-defined functions
193
_CEE_ENVFILE
Specifies a z/OS UNIX System Services data set that contains some or all of
the settings for environment variables.
Use the _CEE_ENVFILE parameter if the length of environment variable string
causes the total length of the JAVAENV content to exceed 245 bytes, which is
the DB2 limit for the JAVAENV content.
The data set must be variable-length.The format for environment variable
settings in this data set is:
environment-variable-1=setting-1
environment-variable-2=setting-2
...
environment-variable-n=setting-n
You can specify some of your environment variable settings as arguments of
ENVAR and put some of the settings in this data set, or you can put all of
your environment variable settings in this data set.
For example, to use file /u/db2b10/javasp/jspnolimit.txt for environment
variable settings, specify:
_CEE_ENVFILE=/u/db2b10/javasp/jspnolimit.txt
ENVAR
Sets the initial values for specified environment variables. The environment
variables that you might need to specify are:
CLASSPATH
When you prepare your Java routines, if you do not put your routine
classes into JAR files, include the directories that contain those classes. For
example:
CLASSPATH=.:/U/DB2RES3/ACMEJOS
Do not include directories for JAR files for JDBC or the JDK in the
CLASSPATH. If you use a DB2JccConfiguration.properties file, you need to
include the directory that contains that file in the CLASSPATH.
DB2_BASE
The value of DB2_BASE is the highest-level directory in the set of HFS
directories that contain DB2 for z/OS code.
For example:
DB2_BASE=/usr/lpp/db2b10/base
The default is /usr/lpp/db2b10/base.
JAVA_HOME
This environment variable indicates to DB2 that the WLM environment is
for Java routines. The value of JAVA_HOME is the highest-level directory
in the set of directories that contain the SDK for Java. For example:
JAVA_HOME=/usr/lpp/java/IBM/J6.0
JCC_HOME
The value of JCC_HOME is the highest-level directory in the set of
directories that contain the JDBC driver. For example:
JCC_HOME=/usr/lpp/db2b10/jdbc
JCC_HOME must be set.
194
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
JDBCSTD
Specifies which version of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
that Java routines use. Possible values are:
3
Java routines use the version of the driver that supports JDBC 3.0.
4
Java routines use the version of the driver that supports JDBC 4.0.
To run multiple Java stored procedures concurrently in a 64-bit
JVM, you must set JDBCSTD to 4.
JVM_DEBUG_PORTRANGE
This environment variable specifies a range of ports that the JVM listens on
for debug connections, in the form low-port-number::high-port-number. The
default is ports 8000 to 8050. For example:
JVM_DEBUG_PORTRANGE=8051::8055
Specify JVM_DEBUG_PORTRANGE only for WLM environments that are
used for debugging Java routines.
JVMPROPS
This environment variable specifies the name of a z/OS UNIX System
Services file that contains startup options for the JVM in which the stored
procedure runs. For example:
JVMPROPS=/usr/lpp/java/properties/jvmsp
The following example shows the contents of a startup options file that
you might use for a JVM in which Java stored procedures run:
# Properties file for JVM for Java stored procedures
# Sets the initial size of middleware heap within non-system heap
-Xms64M
# Sets the maximum size of nonsystem heap
-Xmx128M
#initial size of system heap
-Xinitsh512K
For information about JVM startup options, see IBM 31-bit and 64-bit SDKs
for z/OS, Java 2 Technology Edition, Version 5 SDK and Runtime Environment
User Guide, available at:
http://www.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/software/java
Click the Reference Information link.
LC_ALL
Modify LC_ALL to change the locale to use for the locale categories when
the individual locale environment variables specify locale information. This
value needs to match the CCSID for the DB2 subsystem on which the
stored procedures run. For example:
LC_ALL=En_US.IBM-037
TZ Modify TZ to change the local timezone. For example:
TZ=PST08
The default is GMT (UTC).
USE_LIBJVM_G
Specifies whether the debug version of the JVM is used instead of the
default, non-debug version of the JVM. The debug version of the JVM is in
Chapter 5. Java stored procedures and user-defined functions
195
dynamic link library libjvm_g. If USE_LIBJVM_G is not specified, or its
value is anything other than the capitalized string YES, the non-debug
version of the JVM is used. For example, USE_LIBJVM_G=NO causes the
non-debug version of the JVM to be used.
If USE_LIBJVM_G=YES, the JVMPROPS environment variable must specify
a file that contains JVM startup options. That file must contain the startup
option -Djava.execsuffix=_g.
Specify USE_LIBJVM_G=YES only under the direction of IBM Software
Support.
WORK_DIR
Modify WORK_DIR to change the default destination for STDOUT and
STDERR output.
MSGFILE
Specifies the DD name of a data set in which Language Environment puts
runtime diagnostics. All subparameters in the MSGFILE parameter are
optional. The default is
MSGFILE(SYSOUT,FBA,121,0,NOENQ)
If you specify a data set name in the JSPDEBUG statement of your stored
procedure address space startup procedure, you need to specify JSPDEBUG as
the first parameter. If the NUMTCB value in the stored procedure address
space startup procedure is greater than 1, you need to specify ENQ as the fifth
subparameter. z/OS Language Environment Programming Reference contains
complete information about MSGFILE.
XPLINK(ON)
Causes the initialization of the XPLINK environment. This option must be
specified for a 31-bit environment, and should not be specified for a 64-bit
environment.
The following example shows the contents of a JAVAENV data set.
ENVAR("JCC_HOME=/usr/lpp/db2b10/jdbc",
"JAVA_HOME=/usr/lpp/java160/J6.0",
"WORK_DIR=/u/db2b10/tmp"),
MSGFILE(JSPDEBUG,,,,ENQ)
For information on environment variables that are related to locales, see z/OS

Moving from 31-bit Java routines to 64-bit Java routines
|
|
|
Modify your existing 31-bit Java routine environments to run Java routines in a
64-bit Java virtual machine (JVM). This change can provide better scalability and
performance.
|
About this task
|
|
A stored procedure address space in which JVMs use 64-bit addressing supports a
multi-threaded JVM model. With this model, the WLM address space starts a
196
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
|
|
|
single JVM that can concurrently execute multiple Java stored procedures or
user-defined functions. This model is more efficient than the 31-bit model, in which
a single routine runs in a JVM.
|
|
To run Java routines in 64-bit JVMs, you need to make several changes to the
environment and to your Java applications.

1. Define a startup procedure for a WLM environment in which 64-bit JVMs can
run.
The following JCL shows an example of such a WLM startup procedure.
//DSNWJ64 PROC RGN=0K,APPLENV=DSNWLM_JAVA64,DB2SSN=DSN,
//
NUMTCB=10,MNSPAS=0

In a 64-bit environment, NUMTCB controls the number of concurrent Java stored
procedure executions in a JVM. NUMTCB can be higher for a WLM address space
that supports 64-bit JVMs than for one that supports 31-bit JVMs.
Program DSNX9WJM supports 64-bit JVMs.
2. Alter your stored procedure or user-defined function definitions to specify a
WLM environment name that matches the APPLENV value in the previous
step.
3. Define the application environment for 64-bit Java routines to WLM.
In WLM setup panels, use values like those that are shown in the following
screen examples.

Defining Java routines and JAR files to DB2
Before you can use a Java routine, you need to define it to DB2.
About this task
Use the following procedure to manually define a Java routine to DB2. If you use
IBM Optim Development Studio, IBM Optim Development Studio creates the
definitions.
198
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Procedure
1. Execute the CREATE PROCEDURE or CREATE FUNCTION statement to
define the routine to DB2. To alter the routine definition, use the ALTER
PROCEDURE or ALTER FUNCTION statement.
2. Optional: If the routines are in JAR files, define the JAR files to DB2.
If the routines are in JAR files, it is recommended that you also define the JAR
files to DB2. Alternatively, you can include the JAR file name in the
CLASSPATH.
To define the JAR files to DB2:
v Use the SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR or SQLJ.DB2_INSTALL_JAR built-in stored
procedure to define the JAR files to DB2.
v After you have installed a JAR, if that JAR references classes in other
installed JARs, use the SQLJ.ALTER_JAVA_PATH stored procedure to specify
the class resolution path that the JVM searches to resolve those class
references.
v To replace the JAR file, use the SQLJ.REPLACE_JAR or
SQLJ.DB2_REPLACE_JAR stored procedure.
v To remove the JAR file, use the SQLJ.REMOVE_JAR or
SQLJ.DB2_REMOVE_JAR stored procedure.
SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR, SQLJ, SQLJ.REPLACE_JAR, and SQLJ.REMOVE_JAR can
be used only with the local DB2 catalog. The other stored procedures can be
used with remote or local DB2 catalogs.
Definition of a Java routine to DB2
Before you can use a Java routine, you need to define it to DB2 using the CREATE
PROCEDURE or CREATE FUNCTION statement.
The definition for a Java routine is much like the definition for a routine in any
other language. However, the following parameters have different meanings for
Java routines.
LANGUAGE
Specifies the application programming language in which the routine is
written.
Specify LANGUAGE JAVA.
You cannot specify LANGUAGE JAVA for a user-defined table function.
EXTERNAL NAME
Specifies the program that runs when the procedure name is specified in a
CALL statement or the user-defined function name is specified in an SQL
statement. For Java routines, the argument of EXTERNAL NAME is a string
that is enclosed in single quotation marks. The EXTERNAL NAME clause for a
Java routine has the following syntax:
EXTERNAL NAME
'
class-name.method-name
(1)
JAR-name:
(2)
'
(method-signature)
package-name .
Notes:
1
For compatibility with DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, you can use an exclamation point (!)
after JAR-name instead of a colon.
Chapter 5. Java stored procedures and user-defined functions
199
2
For compatibility with previous versions of DB2, you can use a slash (/) after package-name instead
of a period.
Whether you include JAR-name depends on where the Java code for the routine
resides. If you create a JAR file from the class file for the routine (the output
from the javac command), you need to include JAR-name. You must create the
JAR file and define the JAR file to DB2 before you execute the CREATE
PROCEDURE or CREATE FUNCTION statement. If some other user executes
the CREATE PROCEDURE or CREATE FUNCTION statement, you need to
grant the USAGE privilege on the JAR to them.
If you use a JAR file, that JAR file must refer to classes that are contained in
that JAR file, are found in the CLASSPATH, or are system-supplied. Classes
that are in directories that are referenced in DB2_HOME or JCC_HOME, and
JAVA_HOME do not need to be included in the JAR file.
Whether you include (method-signature) depends on the following factors:
v The way that you define the parameters in your routine method
Each SQL data type has a corresponding default Java data type. If your
routine method uses data types other than the default types, you need to
include a method signature in the EXTERNAL NAME clause. A method
signature is a comma-separated list of data types.
v Whether you overload a Java routine
If you have several Java methods in the same class, with the same name and
different parameter types, you need to specify the method signature to
indicate which version of the program is associated with the Java routine.
If your stored procedure returns result sets, you also need to include a
parameter in the method signature for each result set. The parameter can be in
one of the following forms:
v java.sql.ResultSet[]
v An array of an SQLJ iterator class
You do not include these parameters in the parameter list of the SQL CALL
statement when you invoke the stored procedure.
Example: EXTERNAL NAME clause for a Java user-defined function: Suppose that
you write a Java user-defined function as method getSals in class S1Sal and
package s1. You put S1Sal in a JAR file named sal_JAR and install that JAR in
DB2. The EXTERNAL NAME parameter is :
EXTERNAL NAME ’sal_JAR:s1.S1Sal.getSals’
Example: EXTERNAL NAME clause for a Java stored procedure: Suppose that you
write a Java stored procedure as method getSals in class S1Sal. You put S1Sal
in a JAR file named sal_JAR and install that JAR in DB2. The stored procedure
has one input parameter of type INTEGER and returns one result set. The Java
method for the stored procedure receives one parameter of type
java.lang.Integer, but the default Java data type for an SQL type of INTEGER is
int, so the EXTERNAL NAME clause requires a signature clause. The
EXTERNAL NAME parameter is :
EXTERNAL NAME ’sal_JAR:S1Sal.getSals(java.lang.Integer,java.sql.ResultSet[])’
NO SQL
Indicates that the routine does not contain any SQL statements.
For a Java routine that is stored in a JAR file, you cannot specify NO SQL.
PARAMETER STYLE
Identifies the linkage convention that is used to pass parameters to the routine.
200
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
For a Java routine, the only value that is valid is PARAMETER STYLE JAVA.
You cannot specify PARAMETER STYLE JAVA for a user-defined table
function.
WLM ENVIRONMENT
Identifies the MVS workload manager (WLM) environment in which the
routine is to run.
If you do not specify this parameter, the routine runs in the default WLM
environment that was specified when DB2 was installed.
PROGRAM TYPE
Specifies whether Language Environment runs the routine as a main routine or
a subroutine.
This parameter value must be PROGRAM TYPE SUB.
RUN OPTIONS
Specifies the Language Environment run-time options to be used for the
routine.
This parameter has no meaning for a Java routine. If you specify this
parameter with LANGUAGE JAVA, DB2 issues an error.
SCRATCHPAD
Specifies that when the user-defined function is invoked for the first time, DB2
allocates memory for a scratchpad.
You cannot use a scratchpad in a Java user-defined function. Do not specify
SCRATCHPAD when you create or alter a Java user-defined function.
FINAL CALL
Specifies that a final call is made to the user-defined function, which the
function can use to free any system resources that it has acquired.
You cannot perform a final call when you call a Java user-defined function. Do
not specify FINAL CALL when you create or alter a Java user-defined function.
DBINFO
Specifies that when the routine is invoked, an additional argument is passed
that contains environment information.
You cannot pass the additional argument when you call a Java routine. Do not
specify DBINFO when you call a Java routine.
SECURITY
Specifies how the routine interacts with an external security product, such as
RACF, to control access to non-SQL resources. The values of the SECURITY
parameter are the same for a Java routine as for any other routine. However,
the value of the SECURITY parameter determines the authorization ID that
must have authority to access z/OS UNIX System Services. The values of
SECURITY and the IDs that must have access to z/OS UNIX System Services
are:
DB2
The user ID that is defined for the stored procedure address space in
the RACF started-procedure table.
EXTERNAL
The invoker of the routine.
DEFINER
The definer of the routine.
Chapter 5. Java stored procedures and user-defined functions
201
ALLOW DEBUG MODE, DISALLOW DEBUG MODE, or DISABLE DEBUG MODE
Specifies whether a Java stored procedure can be run in debugging mode.
When DYNAMICRULES run behavior is in effect, the default is determined by
using the value of the CURRENT DEBUG MODE special register. Otherwise
the default is DISALLOW DEBUG MODE.
ALLOW DEBUG MODE
Specifies that the procedure can be run in debugging mode.
DISALLOW DEBUG MODE
Specifies that the procedure cannot be run in debugging mode.
You can use an ALTER PROCEDURE statement to change this option to
ALLOW DEBUG MODE.
DISABLE DEBUG MODE
Specifies that the procedure can never be run in debugging mode.
The procedure cannot be changed to specify ALLOW DEBUG MODE or
DISALLOW DEBUG MODE once the procedure has been created or altered
using DISABLE DEBUG MODE. To change this option, you must drop and
recreate the procedure using the desired option.

Definition of a JAR file for a Java routine to DB2
One way to organize the classes for a Java routine is to collect those classes into a
JAR file. If you do this, you need to install the JAR file into the DB2 catalog.
DB2 provides built-in stored procedures that perform the following functions for
the JAR file:
SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR
Installs a JAR file into the local DB2 catalog.
SQLJ.DB2_INSTALL_JAR
Installs a JAR file into the local DB2 catalog or a remote DB2 catalog.
SQLJ.REPLACE_JAR
Replaces an existing JAR file in the local DB2 catalog.
SQLJ.DB2_REPLACE_JAR
Replaces an existing JAR file in the local DB2 catalog or a remote DB2 catalog.
SQLJ.REMOVE_JAR
Deletes a JAR file from the local DB2 catalog or a remote DB2 catalog.
Chapter 5. Java stored procedures and user-defined functions
203
SQLJ.ALTER_JAVA_PATH
Modifies the class resolution path of an previously installed JAR file to a
specified value.
You can use IBM Optim Development Studio to install JAR files into the DB2
catalog, or you can write a client program that executes SQL CALL statements to
invoke these stored procedures.
Related concepts:
“Definition of a Java routine to DB2” on page 199
SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR stored procedure
SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR creates a new definition of a JAR file in the local DB2 catalog.
SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR authorization
Privilege set: If the CALL statement is embedded in an application program, the
privilege set consists of the privileges that are held by the authorization ID of the
owner of the plan or package. If the statement is dynamically prepared, the
privilege set consists of the privileges that are held by the authorization IDs of the
process.
For calling SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR, the privilege set must include at least one of the
following items:
v EXECUTE privilege on SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR
v Ownership of SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR
v SYSADM authority
The privilege set must also include the authority to install a JAR, which consists of
at least one of the following items:
v CREATEIN privilege on the schema of the JAR
The authorization ID that matches the schema name implicitly has the
CREATEIN privilege on the schema.
v SYSADM or SYSCTRL authority
SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR syntax
CALL SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR (
url,
JAR-name, deploy
)
SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR parameters
url
A VARCHAR(1024) input parameter that identifies the z/OS UNIX System
Services full path name for the JAR file that is to be installed in the DB2
catalog. The format is file://path-name or file:/path-name.
JAR-name
A VARCHAR(257) input parameter that contains the DB2 name of the JAR, in
the form schema.JAR-id or JAR-id. JAR-name is the name that you use when you
refer to the JAR in SQL statements. If you omit schema, DB2 uses the SQL
authorization ID that is in the CURRENT SCHEMA special register. The owner
of the JAR is the authorization ID in the CURRENT SQLID special register.
204
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
deploy
An INTEGER input parameter that indicates whether additional actions are to
be performed after the JAR file is installed. Additional actions are not
supported, so this value is 0.
SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR example
Suppose that you want to install the JAR file that is in path /u/db2inst3/apps/
BUILDPLAN/BUILDPLAN.jar. You want to refer to the JAR file as
DB2INST3.BUILDPLAN in SQL statements. Use a CALL statement similar to this
one.
CALL SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR(’file:/u/db2inst3/apps/BUILDPLAN/BUILDPLAN.jar’,
’DB2INST3.BUILDPLAN’,0)
SQLJ.DB2_INSTALL_JAR stored procedure
SQLJ.DB2_INSTALL_JAR creates a new definition of a JAR file in the local DB2
catalog or in a remote DB2 catalog.
To install a JAR file at a remote location, you need to execute a CONNECT
statement to connect to that location before you call SQLJ.DB2_INSTALL_JAR.
SQLJ.DB2_INSTALL_JAR authorization
Privilege set: If the CALL statement is embedded in an application program, the
privilege set consists of the privileges that are held by the authorization ID of the
owner of the plan or package. If the statement is dynamically prepared, the
privilege set consists of the privileges that are held by the authorization IDs of the
process.
For calling SQLJ.DB2_INSTALL_JAR, the privilege set must include at least one of
the following items:
v EXECUTE privilege on SQLJ.DB2_INSTALL_JAR

SQLJ.ALTER_JAVA_PATH parameters
JAR-name1
A VARCHAR(257) input parameter that contains the DB2 name of the JAR
whose path is to be altered, in the form schema.JAR-id or JAR-id. JAR-name1 is
the name that you use when you refer to the JAR in SQL statements. If you
omit schema, DB2 uses the SQL authorization ID that is in the CURRENT
SCHEMA special register.
path
A VARCHAR(2048) input parameter that specifies the class resolution path that
the JVM uses when JAR-name1 references a class that is neither contained in
JAR-name1, found in the CLASSPATH, nor system-supplied.
During execution of the Java routine, when DB2 encounters an unresolved
class reference, DB2 compares each path element in the path to the class
reference. If a path element matches the class reference, DB2 searches for the
class in the JAR that is specified by the path element.
*
Indicates that any class reference can be searched for in the JAR that is
identified by JAR-name2. If an error prevents the class from being found, the
Chapter 5. Java stored procedures and user-defined functions
211
search terminates, and a java.lang.ClassNotFoundException is thrown to
report that error. If the class is not found in the JAR, the search continues with
the next path element.
Java-package-name.*
Indicates that class references for classes that are in the package named
Java-package-name are searched for in the JAR that is identified by JAR-name2. If
an error prevents a class from being found, the search terminates, and a
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException is thrown to report that error. If a class is
not found in the JAR, the search terminates, and a
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError is thrown.
If the class reference is to a class in a different package, the search continues
with the next path element.
Java-package-name.class-name or class-name
Indicates that class references for classes whose fully qualified name matches
Java-package-name.class-name or class-name are searched for in the JAR that is
identified by JAR-name2. Class references for classes that are in packages
within the package named Java-package-name are not searched for in the JAR
that is identified by JAR-name2. If an error prevents a class from being found,
the search terminates, and a java.lang.ClassNotFoundException is thrown to
report that error. If a class is not found in the JAR, the search terminates and a
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError is thrown.
If the class reference is to a different class, the search continues with the next
path element.
JAR-name2
Specifies the DB2 name of the JAR that is to be searched. The form of
JAR-name2 is schema.JAR-id or JAR-id. If schema is omitted, the JAR name is
implicitly qualified with the schema name in the CURRENT SCHEMA special
register. JAR JAR-name2 must exist at the current server. JAR-name2 must not
be the same as JAR-name1.
SQLJ.ALTER_JAVA_PATH usage notes
Stored procedures that reference classes in multiple JAR files: A stored procedure
that is packaged as a JAR file might reference classes that are in other JAR files,
and the referenced JAR files might reference classes in still other JAR files. You
need to specify class resolution paths for all dependencies among JAR files that the
stored procedure uses. For any JAR files that the stored procedure uses that cannot
be found in the CLASSPATH, and are not system-supplied, you need to use
SQLJ.ALTER_JAVA_PATH to define the class resolution path. For example, suppose
that stored procedure SP, which is packaged in JAR file JARSP, references classes in
JAR files JAR1 and JAR2. Classes in JAR file JAR1 reference classes that are in JAR
file JAR2. None of the JAR files are in the CLASSPATH or are system-supplied.
You need to call SQLJ.ALTER_JAVA_PATH twice, to define the following class
resolution paths:
v From JARSP to JAR1 and JAR2
v From JAR1 to JAR2
SQLJ.ALTER_JAVA_PATH example
Suppose that the JAR file that is named DB2INST3.BUILDPLAN references classes
that are in a previously installed JAR that is named DB2INST3.BUILDPLAN2.
Those classes are in Java package buildPlan2. The following Java program calls

Java routine programming
A Java routine is a Java application program that runs in a stored procedure address
space. It can include JDBC methods or SQLJ clauses.
A Java routine is much like any other Java program and follows the same rules as
routines in other languages. It receives input parameters, executes Java statements,
optionally executes SQLJ clauses, JDBC methods, or a combination of both, and
returns output parameters.
Differences between Java routines and stand-alone Java
programs
Java routines differ in a few basic ways from stand-alone Java programs.
Those differences are:
v In a Java routine, a JDBC connection or an SQLJ connection context can use the
connection to the data source that processes the CALL statement or the
user-defined function invocation. The URL that identifies this default connection
is jdbc:default:connection.
v The top-level method for a Java routine must be declared as static and public.
Chapter 5. Java stored procedures and user-defined functions
213
Although you can use static and final variables in a Java routine without
problems, you might encounter problems when you use static and non-final
variables. You cannot guarantee that a static and non-final variable retains its
value in the following circumstances:
– Across multiple invocations of the same routine
– Across invocations of different routines that reference that variable
v As in routines in other languages, the SQL statements that you can execute in
the routine depend on whether you specify an SQL access level of CONTAINS
SQL, READS SQL DATA, or MODIFIES SQL DATA.

Differences between Java routines and other routines
Java routines differ in a few basic ways from routines that are written in other
programming languages.
A Java routine differs from stored procedures that are written in other languages in
the following ways:
v A Java routine must be defined with PARAMETER STYLE JAVA. PARAMETER
STYLE JAVA specifies that the routine uses a parameter-passing convention that
conforms to the Java language and SQLJ specifications. DB2 passes INOUT and
OUT parameters as single-entry arrays. This means that in your Java routine,
you must declare OUT or INOUT parameters as arrays. For example, suppose
that stored procedure sp_one_out has one output parameter of type int. You
declare the parameter like this:
public static void routine_one_out (int[] out_parm)
v Java routines that are Java main methods have these restrictions:
– The method must have a signature of String[]. It must be possible to map all
the parameters to Java variables of type java.lang.String.
– The routine can have only IN parameters.
v You cannot make instrumentation facility interface (IFI) calls in Java routines.
v You cannot specify an SQL access level of NO SQL for Java routines.
v As in other Java programs, you cannot include the following statements in a
Java routine:
– CONNECT
– RELEASE
– SET CONNECTION
v Routine parameters have different mappings to host language data types than
the mappings of routine parameters to host language parameters for other
languages.
v The technique for returning result sets from Java stored procedures is different
from the technique for returning result sets in other stored procedures.
v When a Java routine executes, Java dynamically loads classes when new class
references occur in the class that is being executed. During the class loading
process, a java.lang.ClassNotFoundException or
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError can be thrown. These failures can occur
whether Java looks for the class in an installed JAR or in the CLASSPATH. If the
Java routine does not catch these errors and exceptions, the routine terminates
and an SQL error condition is reported.

Static and non-final variables in a Java routine
Using Java variables that are defined as static but not final can cause problems
for Java routines.
The reasons for those problems are:
v Use of variables that are static and non-final reduces portability.
Because the ANSI/ISO standard does not include support for static and
non-final variables, different database products might process those variables
differently.
v A sequence of routine invocations is not necessarily processed by the same JVM,
and static variable values are not shared among different JVMs.
For example, suppose that two stored procedures, INITIALIZE and PROCESS,
use the same static variable, sv1. INITIALIZE sets the value of sv1, and
PROCESS depends on the value of sv1. If INITIALIZE runs in one JVM, and
then PROCESS runs in another JVM, sv1 in PROCESS does not contain the value
that INITIALIZE set.
Specifying NUMTCB=1 in the WLM-established stored process space startup
procedure is not sufficient to guarantee that a sequence of routine invocations go
to the same JVM. Under load, multiple stored procedure address spaces are
initiated, and each address space has its own JVM. Multiple invocations might
be directed to multiple address spaces.
v In Java, the static variables for a class are initialized or reset whenever the class
is loaded. However, for Java routines, it is difficult to know when initialization
or reset of static variables occurs.
In certain cases, you need to declare variables as static and non-final. In those
cases, you can use the following technique to make your routines work correctly
with static variables.
To determine whether the values of static data in a routine have persisted across
routine invocations, define a static boolean variable in the class that contains the
routine. Initially set the variable to false, and then set it to true when you set the
value of static data. Check the value of the boolean variable at the beginning of the
routine. If the value is true, the static data has persisted. Otherwise, the data
values need to be set again. With this technique, static data values are not set for
most routine invocations, but are set more than once during the lifetime of the
JVM. Also, with this technique, it is not a problem for a routine to execute on
different JVMs for different invocations.
Chapter 5. Java stored procedures and user-defined functions
215
Writing a Java stored procedure to return result sets
You can write your Java stored procedures to return multiple query result sets to a
client program.
Before you begin
A stored procedure can return multiple query result sets to a client program if the
following conditions are satisfied:
v The client supports the DRDA code points that are used to return query result
sets.
v The value of DYNAMIC RESULT SETS in the stored procedure definition is
greater than 0.
Procedure
For each result set that you want to be returned, your Java stored procedure must
perform the following actions:
1. For each result set, include an object of type java.sql.ResultSet[] or an array of
an SQLJ iterator class in the parameter list for the stored procedure method.
If the stored procedure definition includes a method signature, for each result
set, include java.sql.ResultSet[] or the fully-qualified name of an array of a class
that is declared as an SQLJ iterator in the method signature. These result set
parameters must be the last parameters in the parameter list or method
signature. Do not include a java.sql.ResultSet array or an iterator array in the
SQL parameter list of the stored procedure definition.
2. Execute a SELECT statement to obtain the contents of the result set.
3. Retrieve any rows that you do not want to return to the client.
4. Assign the contents of the result set to element 0 of the java.sql.ResultSet[]
object or array of an SQLJ iterator class that you declared in step 1.
5. Do not close the ResultSet, the statement that generated the ResultSet, or the
connection that is associated with the statement that generated the ResultSet.
DB2 does not return result sets for ResultSets that are closed before the stored
procedure terminates.
Example
The following code shows an example of a Java stored procedure that uses an
SQLJ iterator to retrieve a result set.
216
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
package s1;
import sqlj.runtime.*;
import java.sql.*;

try
{
#sql iter1 = {SELECT LASTNAME, SALARY FROM EMP
WHERE SALARY>0 ORDER BY SALARY DESC};
#sql {SELECT AVG(SALARY) INTO :(AvgSalParm[0]) FROM EMP};
}
catch (SQLException e)
{
System.out.println("SQLCODE returned: " + e.getErrorCode());
throw(e);
}
rs[0] = iter1.getResultSet();

Notes to Figure 47:

This SQLJ clause declares the iterator named NameSal, which is used to retrieve
the rows that will be returned to the stored procedure caller in a result set.
The declaration for the stored procedure method contains declarations for a single
passed parameter, followed by the declaration for the result set object.
This SQLJ clause executes the SELECT to obtain the rows for the result set,
constructs an iterator object that contains those rows, and assigns the iterator
object to variable iter1.
This SQLJ clause retrieves a value into the parameter that is returned to the stored
procedure caller.
This statement uses the getResultSet method to assign the contents of the iterator
to the result set that is returned to the caller.

Techniques for testing a Java routine
You can test your Java routines as stand-alone programs, use the DB2 Unified
Debugger, or write your own debug information from the routines.
Test your routine as a stand-alone program
Before you invoke your Java routines from SQL applications, it is a good idea to
run the routines as stand-alone programs, which are easier to debug. A Java
program that runs as a routine requires only a DB2 package. However, before you
Chapter 5. Java stored procedures and user-defined functions
217
can run the program as a stand-alone program, you need to bind a DB2 plan for it.
Use the DB2 Unified Debugger (stored procedures only)
The DB2 Unified Debugger is available with DB2 Database for Linux, UNIX, and
Windows. The DB2 Unified Debugger provides a GUI interface for debugging Java
stored procedures. Information on the DB2 Unified Debugger is available in the
DB2 Database for Linux, UNIX, and Windows information center, at
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/db2luw/v9r7/index.jsp.
To set up a DB2 for z/OS subsystem to work with the DB2 Unified Debugger,
when you set up your stored procedure environment, follow these additional steps:
1. Customize and run the DSNTIJRT program to define stored procedures that
provide server support for the DB2 Unified Debugger.
DSNTIJSD is in the prefix.SDSNSAMP data set. The job prolog contains
customization instructions.
2. Define the stored procedure that you intend to test with the ALLOW DEBUG
MODE option in the CREATE PROCEDURE or ALTER PROCEDURE
statement.
3. When you prepare the stored procedure for execution, specify the -g option in
the javac command
-g causes the compiler to generate all debugging information for the program..
4. Grant the DEBUGSESSION privilege to the user who runs the debug client.
5. Make the following modifications to the WLM environment for the stored
procedure:
v In the WLM environment startup procedure, set NUMTCB=1
v In the WLM environment startup procedure, include a PSMDEBUG DD
statement to direct the debug diagnostic log to a data set. You can allocate to
a SYSOUT data set or to a preallocated data set. The data set needs to be
created with the RECFM=VBA and LRECL=4096 characteristics.
v In the ENVAR settings in the JAVAENV data set, set USE_LIBJVM_G=YES.
v If the debug port range of 8000::8050 is not acceptable, in the ENVAR
settings in the JAVAENV data set, set JVM_DEBUG_PORTRANGE to the
range of ports that the JVM listens on for debug connections.
Enable collection of DB2 debug information
Include a JSPDEBUG DD statement in your startup procedure for the stored
procedure address space. This DD statement specifies a data set to which DB2
writes debug information for use by IBM Software Support.
Write your own debug information from your routine
A useful technique for debugging is to include System.out.println and
System.err.println calls in your program to write messages to the STDERR and
STDOUT files.
STDERR and STDOUT output is written to the directory that is specified by the
WORK_DIR parameter in the JAVAENV data set, if that directory exists. If no
WORK_DIR parameter is specified, output goes to the default directory,
/tmp/java, if that directory exists.

Chapter 6. Preparing and running JDBC and SQLJ programs
You prepare and run DB2 for z/OS Java programs in the z/OS UNIX System
Services environment.
Program preparation for JDBC programs
Preparing a Java program that contains only JDBC methods is the same as
preparing any other Java program. You compile the program using the javac
command. No precompile or bind steps are required.
For example, to prepare the Sample01.java program for execution, execute this
command from the /usr/lpp/db2b10/jdbc/ directory:
javac Sample01.java
Program preparation for SQLJ programs
Program preparation for SQLJ programs involves translating, compiling,
customizing, and binding programs.

Procedure
The basic steps in SQLJ program preparation are:
1. Run the sqlj command from the z/OS UNIX System Services command line to
translate and compile the source code.
The SQLJ command generates a Java source program, optionally compiles the
Java source program, and produces zero or more serialized profiles. You can
compile the Java program separately, but the default behavior of the sqlj
command is to compile the program. The SQLJ command runs without
connecting to the database server.
2. Run the db2sqljcustomize command from the z/OS UNIX System Services
command line to customize the serialize profiles and bind DB2 packages.
The db2sqljcustomize command performs these tasks:
v Customizes the serialized profiles.
v Optionally does online checking to ensure that application variable types are
compatible with the corresponding column data types.
The default behavior is to do online checking. For better performance, you
should do online checking.
v Optionally binds DB2 packages on a specified database server.
The default behavior is to bind the DB2 packages. However, you can disable
automatic creation of packages and use the db2sqljbind command to bind the
packages later.
You might also need to run the db2sqljbind command under these
circumstances:
– If a bind fails when db2sqljcustomize runs
– if you want to create identical packages at multiple locations for the same
serialized profile
3. Optional: Bind the DB2 packages into a plan.
Use the DB2 BIND command to do that.

Binding SQLJ applications to access multiple database servers
After you prepare an SQLJ program to run on one DB2 database server, you might
want to port that application to other environments that access different database
servers. For example, you might want to move your application from a test
environment to a production environment.
Procedure
The general steps for enabling access of an existing SQLJ application to additional
database servers are:
1. Bind packages on each database server that you want to access.
Do not re-customize the serialized profiles. Customization stores a new package
timestamp in the serialized profile, which makes the new serialized profile
incompatible with the original package.
You can use one of the following methods to bind the additional DB2 packages:
220
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
v Run the db2sqljbind command against each of the database servers.
v Run the DB2 BIND PACKAGE command with the COPY option to copy the
original packages to each of the additional database servers.
You might need a different qualifier for unqualified DB2 objects on each of the
database servers. In that case, you need to specify a value for the QUALIFIER
bind option when you bind the new packages. If you use the db2sqljbind
command, you specify the QUALIFER option in the -bindoptions parameter,
not in the -qualifier parameter. The -qualifier parameter applies to online
checking only.
2. Specify the package collection for the DB2 packages.
By default, when an SQLJ application runs, the DB2 database server looks for
packages using the collection ID that is stored in the serialized profile. If the
collection ID for the additional DB2 packages that you create is different from
the collection ID in the serialized profile, you need to override the collection ID
that is in the serialized profile. You can do that in one of the following ways:
v Specify the collection ID with the pkList DataSource property or the
db2.jcc.pkList global property.
v Follow these steps:
a. Bind a plan for the application that includes the following packages:
– The package collection that you bound in the previous step
– The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ packages
b. Specify the plan name in the planName DataSource property or the
db2.jcc.planName global property.
Binding a plan might simplify authorization for the application. You can
authorize users to execute the plan, rather than authorizing them to execute
each of the packages in the plan.
Example
An existing SQLJ application was customized and bound using the following
db2sqljcustomize invocation:
db2sqljcustomize -url jdbc:db2://system1.svl.ibm.com:8000/ZOS1
-user user01 -password mypass
-rootPkgName WRKSQLJ
-qualifier WRK1
-collection MYCOL1
-bindoptions "CURRENTDATA NO QUALIFIER WRK1 "
-staticpositioned YES WrkTraceTest_SJProfile0.ser
In addition to accessing data at the location that is indicated by URL
jdbc:db2://system1.svl.ibm.com:8000/ZOS1, you want to use the application to
access data at the location that is indicated by jdbc:db2://
system2.svl.ibm.com:8000/ZOS2. On the ZOS2 system, DB2 objects have a qualifier
of WRK2, and the packages need to be in collection MYCOL2. You therefore need
to bind packages at location ZOS2, change the default qualifier to WRK2, and
specify the MYCOL2 collection for the packages. Use one of the following methods
to bind the packages:
v Run DB2 BIND with COPY to copy each of the packages (one for each isolation
level) from the ZOS1 system to the ZOS2 system:
BIND PACKAGE (ZOS2.MYCOL2) OWNER(USER01) QUALIFIER(WRK2) COPY(MYCOL.WRKSQLJ1) CURRENTDATA(NO)
BIND PACKAGE (ZOS2.MYCOL2) OWNER(USER01) QUALIFIER(WRK2) COPY(MYCOL.WRKSQLJ2) CURRENTDATA(NO)
Chapter 6. Preparing and running JDBC and SQLJ programs
221
BIND PACKAGE (ZOS2.MYCOL2) OWNER(USER01) QUALIFIER(WRK2) COPY(MYCOL.WRKSQLJ3) CURRENTDATA(NO)
BIND PACKAGE (ZOS2.MYCOL2) OWNER(USER01) QUALIFIER(WRK2) COPY(MYCOL.WRKSQLJ4) CURRENTDATA(NO)
v Run the db2sqljbind command to create DB2 packages on ZOS2 from the
serialized profile on ZOS1:
db2sqljbind -url jdbc:db2://system2.svl.ibm.com:8000/ZOS2
-user user01 -password mypass
-bindoptions "COLLECTION MYCOL2 QUALIFIER WRK2"
-staticpositioned YES WrkTraceTest_SJProfile0.ser
After you bind the packages, you need to ensure that when the application runs,
the DB2 database server at ZOS2 can find the packages. The collection ID in the
serialized profile is MYCOL1, so the DB2 database server looks in MYCOL1 for the
packages. When you run the application against the ZOS2 system, you need to
access packages in MYCOL2.
For applications that use IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity, use one of the following methods to tell the database server to look in
MYCOL2 as well as MYCOL1:
v Specify "MYCOL1.*,MYCOL2.*" in the pkList DataSource property:
pkList = MYCOL1.*,MYCOL2.*
v Bind a plan for the application that includes the packages in MYCOL2 and the
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ packages:
BIND PLAN(WRKSQLJ) PKLIST(MYCOL1.*,MYCOL2.*,JDBCCOL.*)
Then specify WRKSQLJ in the planName DataSource property:
planName = WRKSQLJ
For applications that use IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4
connectivity, specify "MYCOL1.*,MYCOL2.*" in the currentPackagePath DataSource
property.

Program preparation for Java routines
The program preparation process for Java routines varies, depending on whether
the routines contain SQLJ clauses.
The following topics contain detailed information on program preparation for Java
routines.
Preparation of Java routines with no SQLJ clauses
Java routines that contain no SQLJ clauses are written entirely in JDBC. You can
use one of three methods to prepare Java routines with no SQLJ statements.
Those methods are:
v Prepare the Java routine to run from a JAR file. Running Java routines from JAR
files is recommended.
v Prepare the Java routine with no JAR file.
222
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
v Use IBM Optim Development Studio to prepare the routine.
You can use this method regardless of whether the routine is in a JAR file.
Preparing Java routines with no SQLJ clauses to run from a JAR
file
The recommended method of running Java routines is to run them from a JAR file.
About this task
The steps in this task prepare a JDBC routine for execution, create a JAR file for
the routine, define the JAR file and routine to DB2, and grant access on the routine
to users.
Procedure
1. Run the javac command to compile the Java program to produce Java
bytecodes.
2. Run the jar command to collect the class files that contain the methods for
your routine into a JAR file. See 'Creating JAR files for Java routines" for
information on creating the JAR file.
3. Call the INSTALL_JAR stored procedure to define the JAR file to DB2.
4. If the installed JAR references classes in other installed JARs, call the
SQLJ.ALTER_JAVA_PATH stored procedure to specify the class resolution path
that the JVM searches to resolve those class references.
5. If another user defines the routine to DB2, execute the SQL GRANT USAGE
ON JAR statement to grant the privilege to use the JAR file to that user.
6. Execute the SQL CREATE PROCEDURE or CREATE FUNCTION statement to
define the routine to DB2. Specify the EXTERNAL NAME parameter with the
name of the JAR that you defined to DB2 in step 3.
7. Execute the SQL GRANT statement to grant the EXECUTE privilege on the
routine to the appropriate users.

Preparing Java routines with no SQLJ clauses and no JAR file
If you do not use a JAR file for a Java routine that has no SQLJ clauses, you need
to include the directories for the routine classes in the CLASSPATH.
About this task
The steps in this task compile source code, add the locations of the resulting class
files to the CLASSPATH, define the routine to DB2, and grant access on the routine
to users.
Procedure
1. Run the javac command to compile the Java program to produce Java

JAVAENV data set using a JAVAENV DD statement in the startup procedure
for the WLM-established stored procedure address space.
If you need to modify the CLASSPATH environment variable in the JAVAENV
data set to include the directory for the Java routine's classes, you must restart
the WLM address space to make it use the modified CLASSPATH.

About this task
The steps in this task prepare an SQLJ routine for execution, create JAR files for
the methods in the routine, define the JAR files to DB2, define the routine to DB2,
and grant access on the routine to users.
Procedure
1. Run the sqlj command to translate the source code to produce generated Java
source code and serialized profiles, and to compile the Java program to
produce Java bytecodes.
2. Run the db2sqljcustomize command to produce serialized profiles that are
customized for DB2 for z/OS and DB2 packages.

224
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
7. Execute the SQL CREATE PROCEDURE or CREATE FUNCTION statement to
define the routine to DB2. Specify the EXTERNAL NAME parameter with the
name of the JAR that you defined to DB2 in step 4 on page 224.
8. Execute the SQL GRANT statement to grant the EXECUTE privilege on the
routine to the appropriate users.
Example
The following example demonstrates how to prepare a Java stored procedure that
contains SQLJ clauses for execution from a JAR file.
1. On z/OS UNIX System Services, run the sqlj command to translate and
compile the SQLJ source code.
Assume that the path for the stored procedure source program is
/u/db2res3/s1/s1sal.sqlj. Change to directory /u/db2res3/s1, and issue this
command:
sqlj s1sal.sqlj
After this process completes, the /u/db2res3/s1 directory contains these files:
s1sal.java
s1sal.class
s1sal_SJProfile0.ser
2. On z/OS UNIX System Services, run the db2sqljcustomize command to
produce serialized profiles that are customized for DB2 for z/OS and to bind
the DB2 packages for the stored procedure.
Change to the /u/db2res3 directory, and issue this command:
db2sqljcustomize -url jdbc:db2://mvs1:446/SJCEC1 \
-user db2adm -password db2adm \
-bindoptions "EXPLAIN YES" \
-collection ADMCOLL \
-rootpkgname S1SAL \
s1sal_SJProfile0.ser
After this process completes, s1sal_SJProfile0.ser contains a customized
serialized profile. The DB2 subsystem contains these packages:
S1SAL1
S1SAL2
S1SAL3
S1SAL4
3. On z/OS UNIX System Services, run the jar command to package the class
files that you created in step 1 and the customized serialized profile that you
created in step 2 into a JAR file.
Change to the /u/db2res3 directory, and issue this command:
jar -cvf s1sal.jar s1/*.class s1/*.ser
After this process completes, the /u/db2res3 directory contains this file:
s1sal.jar
4. Call the INSTALL_JAR stored procedure, which is on DB2 for z/OS, to define
the JAR file to DB2.
You need to execute the CALL statement from a static SQL program or from an
ODBC or JDBC program. The CALL statement looks similar to this:
CALL SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR(’file:/u/db2res3/s1sal.jar’,’MYSCHEMA.S1SAL’,0);
The exact form of the CALL statement depends on the language of the program
that issues the CALL statement.
Chapter 6. Preparing and running JDBC and SQLJ programs
225
After this process completes, the DB2 catalog contains JAR file
MYSCHEMA.S1SAL.
5. If the installed JAR references classes in other installed JARs, call the
SQLJ.ALTER_JAVA_PATH stored procedure, which is on DB2 for z/OS, to
specify the class resolution path that the JVM searches to resolve those class
references. You need to execute the CALL statement from a static SQL program
or from an ODBC or JDBC program.
6. If another user defines the routine to DB2, on DB2 for z/OS, execute the SQL
GRANT USAGE ON JAR statement to grant the privilege to use the JAR file to
that user.
Suppose that you want any user to be able to define the stored procedure to
DB2. This means that all users need the USAGE privilege on JAR
MYSCHEMA.S1SAL. To grant this privilege, execute this SQL statement:
GRANT USAGE ON JAR MYSCHEMA.S1SAL TO PUBLIC;
7. On DB2 for z/OS, execute the SQL CREATE PROCEDURE statement to define
the stored procedure to DB2:
CREATE PROCEDURE SYSPROC.S1SAL
(DECIMAL(10,2) INOUT)
FENCED
MODIFIES SQL DATA
COLLID ADMCOLL
LANGUAGE JAVA
EXTERNAL NAME ’MYSCHEMA.S1SAL:s1.S1Sal.getSals’
WLM ENVIRONMENT WLMIJAV
DYNAMIC RESULT SETS 1
PROGRAM TYPE SUB
PARAMETER STYLE JAVA;
8. On DB2 for z/OS, execute the SQL GRANT EXECUTE statement to grant the
privilege to run the routine to that user.
Suppose that you want any user to be able to run the routine. This means that
all users need the EXECUTE privilege on SYSPROC.S1SAL. To grant this
privilege, execute this SQL statement:
GRANT EXECUTE ON PROCEDURE SYSPROC.S1SAL TO PUBLIC;

Procedure
1. Run the sqlj command to translate the source code to produce generated Java
source code and serialized profiles, and to compile the Java program to
produce Java bytecodes.
226
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
2. Run the db2sqljcustomize command to produce serialized profiles that are
customized for DB2 for z/OS and DB2 packages.
3. Ensure that the zFS or HFS directory that contains the class files for your
routine is in the CLASSPATH for the WLM-established stored procedure
address space.
You specify this CLASSPATH in the JAVAENV data set. You specify the
JAVAENV data set using a JAVAENV DD statement in the startup procedure
for the WLM-established stored procedure address space.
If you need to modify the CLASSPATH environment variable in the JAVAENV
data set to include the directory for the Java routine's classes, you must restart
the WLM address space to make it use the modified CLASSPATH.
4. Use the SQL CREATE PROCEDURE or CREATE FUNCTION statement to
define the routine to DB2. Specify the EXTERNAL NAME parameter without a
JAR name.

Creating JAR files for Java routines
A convenient way to ensure that all modules of a Java routine are accessible is to
store those modules in a JAR file. You create the JAR file by running the jar
command in z/OS UNIX System Services.
Before you begin
For a JDBC routine, before you can create a JAR file, you need to compile the
source code. For an SQLJ routine, before you can create a JAR file, you need to
translate, compile, and customize the source code.
Procedure
1. If the Java source file does not contain a package statement, change to the
directory that contains the class file for the Java routine, which you created by
running the javac command.
For example, if JDBC routine Add_customer.java is in /u/db2res3/acmejos,
change to directory /u/db2res3/acmejos.
If the Java source file contains a package statement, change to the directory that
is one level above the directory that is named in the package statement.
For example, suppose the package statement is:
package lvlOne.lvlTwo.lvlThree;
Change to the directory that contains lvlOne as an immediate subdirectory.
2. Run the jar command.
You might need to specify at least these options:
c
Creates a new or empty archive.
v
Generates verbose output on stderr.
f
Specifies that the argument immediately after the options list is the name of
the JAR file to be created.
Chapter 6. Preparing and running JDBC and SQLJ programs
227
For example, to create a JAR file named acmejos.jar from Add_customer.class,
which is in package acmejos, execute this jar command:
jar -cvf acmejos.jar acmejos/Add_customer.class
To create a JAR file for an SQLJ routine, you also need to include all generated
class files, such as classes that are generated for iterators, and all serialized
profile files. For example, suppose that all classes are declared to be in package
acmejos, and all class files, including generated class files, and all serialized
profile files for SQLJ routine Add_customer.sqlj are in directory
/u/db2res3/acmejos/. To create a JAR file named acmejos.jar, change the the
/u/db2res3 directory, and then issue this jar command:
jar -cvf acmejos.jar acmejos/*.class acmejos/*.ser
Running JDBC and SQLJ programs
You run a JDBC or SQLJ program using the java command. Before you run the
program, you need to ensure that the JVM can find all of the files that it needs.
About this task
These steps allow you to run a JDBC or SQLJ program.
Procedure
1. Ensure that the program files can be found.
v For an SQLJ program, put the serialized profiles for the program in the same
directory as the class files for the program.
v Include directories for the class files that are used by the program in the
CLASSPATH.
2. Run the java command on the z/OS UNIX System Services command line, with
the top-level file name in the program as the argument.
Example
To run a program that is in the EzJava class, add the directory that contains EzJava
to the CLASSPATH. Then run this command:
java EzJava

The IBM implementations of JDBC and SQLJ provide a number of application
programming interfaces, properties, and commands for developing JDBC and SQLJ
applications.
Data types that map to database data types in Java applications
To write efficient JDBC and SQLJ programs, you need to use the best mappings
between Java data types and table column data types.
The following tables summarize the mappings of Java data types to JDBC and
database data types for a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, DB2 for z/OS, or
IBM Informix system.
Data types for updating table columns
The following table summarizes the mappings of Java data types to database data

Notes:
1. For column updates, the data server has no exact equivalent for the Java boolean or byte data types, but the best
fit is SMALLINT.
2. p is the decimal precision and s is the scale of the table column.
You should design financial applications so that java.math.BigDecimal columns map to DECIMAL columns. If
you know the precision and scale of a DECIMAL column, updating data in the DECIMAL column with data in a
java.math.BigDecimal variable results in better performance than using other combinations of data types.
3. n=16 or n=34.
4. DECFLOAT is valid for connections to DB2 Version 9.1 for z/OS, DB2 V9.5 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, or
DB2 for i V6R1, or later database servers. Use of DECFLOAT requires the SDK for Java Version 5 (1.5) or later.
5. n<=255.
6. m<=127.
7. n<=32704.
8. m<=16352.
9. This mapping is valid only if the database server can determine the data type of the column.
10. XML is valid for connections to DB2 Version 9.1 for z/OS or later database servers or DB2 V9.1 for Linux, UNIX,
and Windows or later database servers.
11. This mapping is valid only for IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 4.13 or later.
12. BIGINT is valid for connections to DB2 Version 9.1 for z/OS or later database servers, DB2 V9.1 for Linux,
UNIX, and Windows or later database servers, and all supported DB2 for i database servers.

Date, time, and timestamp values that can cause problems in
JDBC and SQLJ applications
You might receive unexpected results in JDBC and SQLJ applications if you use
date, time, and timestamp values that do not correspond to real dates and times.
The following items might cause problems:
v Use of the hour '24' to represent midnight
v Use of a date between October 5, 1582, and October 14, 1582, inclusive
Problems with using the hour '24' as midnight
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses Java data types for its
internal processing of input and output parameters and ResultSet content in JDBC
and SQLJ applications. The Java data type that is used by the driver is based on
the best match for the corresponding SQL type when the target SQL type is known
to the driver.
236
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
For values that are assigned to or retrieved from DATE, TIME, or TIMESTAMP
SQL types, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses java.sql.Date for
DATE SQL types, java.sql.Time for TIME SQL types, and java.sql.Timestamp for
TIMESTAMP SQL types.
When you assign a string value to a DATE, TIME, or TIMESTAMP target, the IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses Java facilities to convert the string
value to a java.sql.Date, java.sql.Time, or java.sql.Timestamp value. If a string
representation of a date, time, or timestamp value does not correspond to a real
date or time, Java adjusts the value to a real date or time value. In particular, Java
adjusts an hour value of '24' to '00' of the next day. This adjustment can result in
an exception for a timestamp value of '9999-12-31 24:00:00.0', because the adjusted
year value becomes '10000'.
Important: To avoid unexpected results when you assign or retrieve date, time, or
timestamp values in JDBC or SQLJ applications, ensure that the values are real
date, time, or timestamp values. In addition, do not use '24' as the hour component
of a time or timestamp value.
If a value that does not correspond to a real date or time, such as a value with an
hour component of '24', is stored in a TIME or TIMESTAMP column, you can
avoid adjustment during retrieval by executing the SQL CHAR function against
that column in the SELECT statement that defines a ResultSet. Executing the
CHAR function converts the date or time value to a character string value on the
database side. However, if you use the getTime or getTimestamp method to retrieve
that value from the ResultSet, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
converts the value to a java.sql.Time or java.sql.Timestamp type, and Java adjusts
the value. To avoid date adjustment, execute the CHAR function against the
column value, and retrieve the value from the ResultSet with the getString
method.
The following examples show the results of updating DATE, TIME, or
TIMESTAMP columns in JDBC or SQLJ applications, when the application data
does not represent real dates or times.

Problems with using dates in the range October 5, 1582, through
October 14, 1582
The Java java.util.Date and java.util.Timestamp classes use the Julian calendar
for dates before October 4, 1582, and the Gregorian calendar for dates starting with
October 4, 1582. In the Gregorian calendar, October 4, 1582, is followed by October
15, 1582. If a Java program encounters a java.util.Date or java.util.Timestamp
value that is between October 5, 1582, and October 14, 1582, inclusive, Java adds 10
days to that date. Therefore, a DATE or TIMESTAMP value in a DB2 table that has
a value between October 5, 1582, and October 14, 1582, inclusive, is retrieved in a
Java program as a java.util.Date or java.util.Timestamp value between October
15, 1582, and October 24, 1582, inclusive. A java.util.Date or
java.util.Timestamp value in a Java program that is between October 5, 1582, and
October 14, 1582, inclusive, is stored in a DB2 table as a DATE or TIMESTAMP
value between October 15, 1582, and October 24, 1582, inclusive.
Example: Retrieve October 10, 1582, from a DATE column.
// DATETABLE has one date column with one row.
// Its value is 1582-10-10.
java.sql.ResultSet rs =
statement.executeQuery(select * from DATETABLE);
rs.next();
System.out.println(rs.getDate(1)); // Value is retrieved as 1582-10-20
Example: Store October 10, 1582, in a DATE column.
java.sql.Date d = java.sql.Date.valueOf("1582-10-10");
java.sql.PreparedStatement ps =
c.prepareStatement("Insert into DATETABLE values(?)");
ps.setDate(1, d);
ps.executeUpdate(); // Value is inserted as 1582-10-20
To retrieve a value in the range October 5, 1582, to October 14, 1582, from a DB2
table without date adjustment, execute the SQL CHAR function against the DATE
or TIMESTAMP column in the SELECT statement that defines a ResultSet.
Executing the CHAR function converts the date or time value to a character string
value on the database side.
To store a value in the range October 5, 1582, to October 14, 1582 in a DB2 table
without date adjustment, you can use one of the following techniques:
238
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
v For a JDBC or an SQLJ application, use the setString method to assign the
value to a String input parameter. Cast the input parameter as VARCHAR, and
execute the DATE or TIMESTAMP function against the result of the cast. Then
store the result of the DATE or TIMESTAMP function in the DATE or
TIMESTAMP column.
v For a JDBC application, set the Connection or DataSource property sendDataAsIs
to true, and use the setString method to assign the date or timestamp value to
the input parameter. Then execute an SQL statement to assign the String value
to the DATE or TIMESTAMP column.
Example: Retrieve October 10, 1582, from a DATE column without date
adjustment.
// DATETABLE has one date column called DATECOL with one row.
// Its value is 1582-10-10.
java.sql.ResultSet rs =
statement.executeQuery(SELECT CHAR(DATECOL) FROM DATETABLE);
rs.next();
System.out.println(rs.getString(1)); // Value is retrieved as 1582-10-10
Example: Store October 10, 1582, in a DATE column without date adjustment.
String s = "1582-10-10";
java.sql.Statement stmt = c.createStatement;
java.sql.PreparedStatement ps =
c.prepareStatement("Insert INTO DATETABLE VALUES " +
"(DATE(CAST (? AS VARCHAR)))");
ps.setString(1, s);
ps.executeUpdate(); // Value is inserted as 1582-10-10
Data loss for timestamp data in JDBC and SQLJ applications
For DB2 for z/OS Version 10 or later, or DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows
Version 9.7 or later, you can specify the precision of the fractional part of a
TIMESTAMP column, with a maximum precision of 12 digits. The fractional part
of a Java timestamp value can have up to 9 digits of precision. Depending on the
column definition, data loss can occur when you update a TIMESTAMP(p) column
or retrieve data from a TIMESTAMP(p) column.
Data loss for input data
If you use a setTimestamp call to pass a timestamp value to a TIMESTAMP(p)
column, the maximum precision of the Java value that is sent to the data source is
9. If you use a setTimestamp call to pass a timestamp value to a TIMESTAMP
column at a data source that does not support TIMESTAMP(p), the maximum
precision of the Java value that is sent to the data source is 6. For input to a
TIMESTAMP(p) column, if the precision of the target column is less than the
precision of the input value, the data source truncates the excess digits in the
fractional part of the timestamp.
If you use a setString call to pass the input value, it is possible to send a value
with a precision of greater than 9 to the data source.
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 3.59 or later, no data loss
occurs if the TIMESTAMP(p) column is big enough to accommodate the input
value. For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 3.58 or earlier, data
loss depends on the setting of the deferPrepares property and the sendDataAsIs
property:
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
239
v If sendDataAsIs is set to true, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
sends the string to the data source as-is, so the fractional part of the timestamp
value can be more than 9 digits. If the value of p in the TIMESTAMP(p) column
is greater than or equal to the number of digits in the fractional part of the input
data, no data loss occurs.
v If sendDataAsIs is set to false, data loss depends on the deferPrepares setting.
v If deferPrepares is set to true, the first time that an UPDATE statement is
executed, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ sends the string to the
data source as-is, so the fractional part of the timestamp value can be more than
9 digits. If the value of p in the TIMESTAMP(p) column is greater than or equal
to the number of digits in the fractional part of the input data, no data loss
occurs.
For subsequent executions of the UPDATE statement, the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ can determine that the target data type is a
TIMESTAMP data type. If the data source supports TIMESTAMP(p) columns, the
driver converts the input value to a java.sql.Timestamp value with a maximum
precision of 9. If the data source does not support TIMESTAMP(p) columns, the
driver converts the input value to a java.sql.Timestamp value with a maximum
precision of 6. Data loss occurs if the original value has more precision than the
converted java.sql.Timestamp value, or if the java.sql.Timestamp value has more
precision than the TIMESTAMP(p) column.
v If deferPrepares is set to false, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
can determine that the target data type is a TIMESTAMP data type. If the data
source supports TIMESTAMP(p) columns, the driver converts the input value to
a java.sql.Timestamp value with a maximum precision of 9. If the data source
does not support TIMESTAMP(p) columns, the driver converts the input value
to a java.sql.Timestamp value with a maximum precision of 6. Data loss occurs if
the original value has more precision than the converted java.sql.Timestamp
value, or if the java.sql.Timestamp value has more precision than the
TIMESTAMP(p) column.
You can lessen data loss for input timestamp values by using a setString call and
setting sendDataAsIs to true. However, if you set sendDataAsIs to true, you need
to ensure that application data types are compatible with data source data types.
Data loss for output data
When you use a getTimestamp or getString call to retrieve data from a
TIMESTAMP(p) column, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ converts
the value to a java.sql.Timestamp value with a maximum precision of 9. If the
source value has a precision of greater than 9, the driver truncates the fractional
part of the retrieved value to nine digits. If you do not want truncation to occur, in
the SELECT statement that retrieves the TIMESTAMP(p) value, you can cast the
TIMESTAMP(p) value to a character data type, such as VARCHAR, and use
getString to retrieve the value from the ResultSet.
Retrieval of special values from DECFLOAT columns in Java
applications
Special handling is necessary if you retrieve values from DECFLOAT columns, and
the DECFLOAT columns contain the values NaN, Infinity, or -Infinity.
The recommended Java data type for retrieval of DECFLOAT column values is
java.math.BigDecimal. However, you receive SQL error code -4231 if you perform
either of these operations:
240
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
v Retrieve the value NaN, Infinity, or -Infinity from a DECFLOAT column using
the JDBC java.sql.ResultSet.getBigDecimal or java.sql.ResultSet.getObject
method
v Retrieve the value NaN, Infinity, or -Infinity from a DECFLOAT column into a
java.math.BigDecimal variable in an SQLJ clause of an SQLJ program
You can circumvent this restriction by testing for the -4231 error, and retrieving the
special value using the java.sql.ResultSet.getDouble or
java.sql.ResultSet.getString method.
Suppose that the following SQL statements were used to create and populate a
table.

Use of PreparedStatement.setTimestamp to set values in
TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE columns
When you use PreparedStatement.setTimestamp to set a value in a TIMESTAMP
WITH TIME ZONE column, you should specify a com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp
object for the input value.
Use of a com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp object ensures that the correct time zone is
assigned to the target column.
In certain cases, the target data type for a table update is not known. Possible
reasons are:
v The deferPrepares and sendDataAsIs properties are set so that the target data
type is not known.
v The input parameter is for a CALL statement, and the stored procedure is on a
DB2 for z/OS data server.
If the target data type is not known, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ must choose a target data type. When an input parameter has type
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp, and the target data server supports TIMESTAMP
WITH TIME ZONE, the driver always chooses TIMESTAMP with TIMEZONE as
the target data type.
If the target data type is not known, the target data server supports TIMESTAMP
WITH TIME ZONE, and the input data type is java.sql.Timestamp, the driver
chooses TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE as the target type, except when the input
object has a value of 0001-01-01-00:00:00.000000 or 9999-12-31-23:59:59.999999. In
those cases, the driver chooses the TIMESTAMP type, without a time zone. Use of
the TIMESTAMP data type in those two cases prevents an overflow condition from
242
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
occurring because of adjustment of the value for the implied time zone. The
implied time zone is the time zone of the Java virtual machine (JVM).
Migration consideration
TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE is first supported in DB2 for z/OS Version 10
new-function mode. Under certain circumstances, an application that invokes
PreparedStatement.setTimestamp might produce different results before and after
conversion to DB2 for z/OS Version 10 new-function mode. If the second
parameter of PreparedStatement.setTimestamp has the java.sql.Timestamp data
type, and the target data type is not known, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ chooses TIMESTAMP as the target data type before Version 10
new-function mode. However, starting with DB2 for z/OS Version 10 new-function
mode, unless the input value is 0001-01-01-00:00:00.000000 or 9999-12-3123:59:59.999999, the driver chooses TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE as the target
data type. If the driver chooses the TIMESTAMP data type, and the target type is
actually TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE, the database manager sets the time zone
in the target column using the value of the IMPLICIT_TIMEZONE DECP value.
This value might differ from the value that is inserted prior to Version 10
new-function mode.
To produce the same results when PreparedStatement.setTimestamp is executed,
specify a com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp value as the second parameter.
Properties for the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ properties define how the connection
to a particular data source should be made. Most properties can be set for a
DataSource object or for a Connection object.
Methods for setting the properties
Properties can be set in one of the following ways:
v Using setXXX methods, where XXX is the unqualified property name, with the
first character capitalized.
Properties are applicable to the following IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ-specific implementations that inherit from
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource:
– com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2SimpleDataSource
– com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2ConnectionPoolDataSource
– com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2XADataSource
v In a java.util.Properties value in the info parameter of a
DriverManager.getConnection call.
v In a java.lang.String value in the url parameter of a
DriverManager.getConnection call.
Some properties with an int data type have predefined constant field values. You
must resolve constant field values to their integer values before you can use
those values in the url parameter. For example, you cannot use
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.TRACE_ALL in a url parameter. However,
you can build a URL string that includes
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.TRACE_ALL, and assign the URL string to
a String variable. Then you can use the String variable in the url parameter:
String url =
"jdbc:db2://sysmvs1.stl.ibm.com:5021/STLEC1" +
":user=dbadm;password=dbadm;" +
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
243
"traceLevel=" +
(com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.TRACE_ALL) + ";";
Connection con =
java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(url);

Common IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
properties for all supported database products
Most of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ properties apply to all
database products that the driver supports.
Unless otherwise noted, all properties are in com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.
Those properties are:
affinityFailbackInterval
Specifies the length of the interval, in seconds, that the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ waits between attempts to fail back an existing connection
to the primary server. A value that is less than or equal to 0 means that the
connection does not fail back. The default is DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0).
Attempts to fail back connections to the primary server are made at transaction
boundaries, after the specified interval elapses.
affinityFailbackInterval is used only if the values of properties
enableSeamlessFailover and enableClientAffinitiesList are
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1).
affinityFailbackInterval applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ type 4 connectivity.
allowNextOnExhaustedResultSet
Specifies how the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ handles a
ResultSet.next() call for a forward-only cursor that is positioned after the last
row of the ResultSet. The data type of this property is int.
Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
For a ResultSet that is defined as TYPE_FORWARD_ONLY,
ResultSet.next() returns false if the cursor was previously positioned
244
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
after the last row of the ResultSet. false is returned, regardless of
whether the cursor is open or closed.
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
For a ResultSet that is defined as TYPE_FORWARD_ONLY, when
ResultSet.next() is called, and the cursor was previously positioned
after the last row of the ResultSet, the driver throws a
java.sql.SQLException with error text "Invalid operation: result set is
closed." This is the default.
allowNullResultSetForExecuteQuery
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ returns null
when Statement.executeQuery, PreparedStatement.executeQuery, or
CallableStatement.executeQuery is used to execute a CALL statement for a
stored procedure that does not return any result sets.
Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
The behavior is the same as for DB2BaseDataSource.NO.
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ returns null when
Statement.executeQuery, PreparedStatement.executeQuery, or
CallableStatement.executeQuery is used to execute a CALL statement
for a stored procedure that does not return any result sets. This
behavior does not conform to the JDBC standard.
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ throws an
SQLException when Statement.executeQuery,
PreparedStatement.executeQuery, or CallableStatement.executeQuery
is used to execute a CALL statement for a stored procedure that does
not return any result sets. This behavior conforms to the JDBC
standard.
atomicMultiRowInsert
Specifies whether batch operations that use PreparedStatement methods to
modify a table are atomic or non-atomic. The data type of this property is int.
For connections to DB2 for z/OS, this property applies only to batch INSERT
operations.
For connections to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows or IBM Informix, this
property applies to batch INSERT, MERGE, UPDATE or DELETE operations.
Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
Batch operations are atomic. Insertion of all rows in the batch is
considered to be a single operation. If insertion of a single row fails,
the entire operation fails with a BatchUpdateException. Use of a batch
statement that returns auto-generated keys fails with a
BatchUpdateException.
If atomicMultiRowInsert is set to DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1):
v Execution of statements in a heterogeneous batch is not allowed.
v If the target data source is DB2 for z/OS the following operations
are not allowed:
– Insertion of more than 32767 rows in a batch results in a
BatchUpdateException.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
245
– Calling more than one of the following methods against the same
parameter in different rows results in a BatchUpdateException:
- PreparedStatement.setAsciiStream
- PreparedStatement.setCharacterStream
- PreparedStatement.setUnicodeStream
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
Batch inserts are non-atomic. Insertion of each row is considered to be
a separate execution. Information on the success of each insert
operation is provided by the int[] array that is returned by
Statement.executeBatch.
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
Batch inserts are non-atomic. Insertion of each row is considered to be
a separate execution. Information on the success of each insert
operation is provided by the int[] array that is returned by
Statement.executeBatch. This is the default.
blockingReadConnectionTimeout
The amount of time in seconds before a connection socket read times out. This
property applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4
connectivity, and affects all requests that are sent to the data source after a
connection is successfully established. The default is 0. A value of 0 means that
there is no timeout.
clientDebugInfo
Specifies a value for the CLIENT DEBUGINFO connection attribute, to notify
the data server that stored procedures and user-defined functions that are
using the connection are running in debug mode. CLIENT DEBUGINFO is
used by the DB2 Unified Debugger. The data type of this property is String.
The maximum length is 254 bytes.
This property applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type
4 connectivity.
clientRerouteAlternateServerName
Specifies one or more server names for client reroute. The data type of this
property is String.
When enableClientAffinitiesList=DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1),
clientRerouteAlternateServerName must contain the name of the primary
server as well as alternate server names. The server that is identified by
serverName and portNumber is the primary server. That server name must
appear at the beginning of the clientRerouteAlternateServerName list.
If more than one server name is specified, delimit the server names with
commas (,) or spaces. The number of values that is specified for
clientRerouteAlternateServerName must match the number of values that is
specified for clientRerouteAlternatePortNumber.
clientRerouteAlternateServerName applies to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows and IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity.
clientRerouteAlternatePortNumber
Specifies one or more port numbers for client reroute. The data type of this
property is String.
When enableClientAffinitiesList=DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1),
clientRerouteAlternatePortNumber must contain the port number for the
primary server as well as port numbers for alternate servers. The server that is
246
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
identified by serverName and portNumber is the primary server. That port
number must appear at the beginning of the
clientRerouteAlternatePortNumber list.
If more than one port number is specified, delimit the port numbers with
commas (,) or spaces. The number of values that is specified for
clientRerouteAlternatePortNumber must match the number of values that is
specified for clientRerouteAlternateServerName.
clientRerouteAlternatePortNumber applies to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows and IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity.
clientRerouteServerListJNDIName
Identifies a JNDI reference to a DB2ClientRerouteServerList instance in a JNDI
repository of reroute server information. clientRerouteServerListJNDIName
applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity,
and to connections that are established through the DataSource interface.
If the value of clientRerouteServerListJNDIName is not null,
clientRerouteServerListJNDIName provides the following functions:
v Allows information about reroute servers to persist across JVMs
v Provides an alternate server location if the first connection to the data source
fails
clientRerouteServerListJNDIContext
Specifies the JNDI context that is used for binding and lookup of the
DB2ClientRerouteServerList instance. clientRerouteServerListJNDIContext
applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity,
and to connections that are established through the DataSource interface.
If clientRerouteServerListJNDIContext is not set, the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ creates an initial context using system properties or the
jndi.properties file.
clientRerouteServerListJNDIContext can be set only by using the following
method:
public void setClientRerouteServerListJNDIContext(javax.naming.Context registry)
commandTimeout
Specifies the maximum time in seconds that an application that runs under the
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ waits for SQL operations to
complete before the driver throws an SQLException. The wait time includes
time to obtain a transport, perform failover if needed, send the request, and
wait for a response. The data type of this parameter is int. The default is 0,
which means that there is no timeout.
If the java.sql.Statement.setQueryTimeout method is invoked, the query
timeout value that is set through Statement.setQueryTimeout overrides the
commandTimeout value.
commandTimeout applies to the execution of Statement, PreparedStatement,
and CallableStatement methods execute, executeQuery, and executeUpdate.
commandTimeout also applies to the executeBatch method if property
queryTimeoutInterruptProcessingMode has the value
INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_CLOSE_SOCKET (2).
The SQL error code that is returned with the SQLException depends on the
data server and the value of property queryTimeoutInterruptProcessingMode:
v For connections to DB2 for z/OS data servers, -30108 is returned.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
247
Automatic client reroute processing is not initiated if the commandTimeout
value is exceeded.
v For connections to other data servers:
– If the queryTimeoutInterruptProcessingMode value is
INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_STATEMENT_CANCEL (1), -952 is returned.
– If the queryTimeoutInterruptProcessingMode value is
INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_CLOSE_SOCKET (2), -30108 is returned.
|
|
If configuration property db2.jcc.enableInetAddressGetHostName is set to true,
the following situations might occur:
v Actual wait times might exceed the commandTimeout value. This situation
can occur when the driver needs to do several DNS lookup operations to
resolve IP addresses to host names. The amount by which the wait time
exceeds the commandTimeout value depends on the number of DNS lookup
operations, and the amount of time that each DNS lookup operation takes.
v The extra time that is required for DNS lookup operations might cause more
timeout conditions than if db2.jcc.enableInetAddressGetHostName is set to
false.
connectionCloseWithInFlightTransaction
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ throws an
SQLException or rolls back a transaction without throwing an SQLException
when a connection is closed in the middle of the transaction. Possible values
are:
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
The behavior is the same as for
DB2BaseDataSource.CONNECTION_CLOSE_WITH_EXCEPTION.
DB2BaseDataSource.CONNECTION_CLOSE_WITH_EXCEPTION (1)
When a connection is closed in the middle of a transaction, an
SQLException with error -4471 is thrown.
DB2BaseDataSource.CONNECTION_CLOSE_WITH_ROLLBACK (2)
When a connection is closed in the middle of a transaction, the
transaction is rolled back, and no SQLException is thrown.
connectionTimeout
Specifies the maximum time in seconds that the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ waits for a reply from a group of data servers when the driver
attempts to establish a connection. If the driver does not receive a reply after
the amount of time that is specified by connectionTimeout, the driver throws
an SQLException with SQL error code -4499. The data type of this parameter is
int. The default value is 0.
connectionTimeout applies only to connections to a DB2 for z/OS data sharing
group, DB2 pureScale® instance, or IBM Informix high availability cluster.
If connectionTimeout is set to a positive value, that value overrides any other
timeout values that are set on a connection, such as loginTimeout. A
connection is attempted to the member of the group of data servers with the
greatest load capacity. If none of the members are up, a connection is
attempted to the group IP address that is specified on the DataSource. If the
connection cannot be established with any of the data servers within the
amount of time that is specified by connectionTimeout, an SQLException is
thrown.
If connectionTimeout is set to 0, and automatic client reroute is not enabled,
there is no time limit.
248
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
If connectionTimeout is set to 0, and automatic client reroute is enabled against
a DB2 for z/OS data sharing group, DB2 pureScale instance, or IBM Informix
high availability cluster, automatic client reroute properties such as
maxRetriesForClientReroute and retryIntervalForClientReroute control the
amount of time that is needed to establish the connection.
If configuration property db2.jcc.enableInetAddressGetHostName is set to true,
the following situations might occur:
v Actual wait times might exceed the connectionTimeout value. This situation
can occur when the driver needs to do several DNS lookup operations to
resolve IP addresses to host names. The amount by which the wait time
exceeds the connectionTimeout value depends on the number of DNS
lookup operations, and the amount of time that each DNS lookup operation
takes.
v The extra time that is required for DNS lookup operations might cause more
timeout conditions than if db2.jcc.enableInetAddressGetHostName is set to
false.
databaseName
Specifies the name for the data source. This name is used as the database
portion of the connection URL. The name depends on whether IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity or IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity is used.
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity:
v If the connection is to a DB2 for z/OS server, the databaseName value is the
DB2 location name that is defined during installation. All characters in this
value must be uppercase characters. You can determine the location name by
executing the following SQL statement on the server:
SELECT CURRENT SERVER FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1;
v If the connection is to a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows server, the
databaseName value is the database name that is defined during installation.
v If the connection is to an IBM Informix server, database is the database name.
The name is case-insensitive. The server converts the name to lowercase.
v If the connection is to an IBM Cloudscape server, the databaseName value is
the fully-qualified name of the file that contains the database. This name
must be enclosed in double quotation marks ("). For example:
"c:/databases/testdb"
If this property is not set, connections are made to the local site.
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity:
v The databaseName value is the location name for the data source. The
location name is defined in the SYSIBM.LOCATIONS catalog table.
If the databaseName property is not set, the connection location depends on
the type of environment in which the connection is made. If the connection
is made in an environment such as a stored procedure, CICS, or IMS
environment, where a DB2 connection to a location is previously established,
that connection is used. The connection URL for this case is
jdbc:default:connection:. If a connection to DB2 is not previously established,
the connection is to the local site. The connection URL for this case is
jdbc:db2os390: or jdbc:db2os390sqlj:.
decimalSeparator
Specifies the decimal separator for input and output, for decimal, floating
point, or decimal floating-point data values. The data type of this property is
int.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
249
If the value of the sendDataAsIs property is true, decimalSeparator affects only
output values.
Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.DECIMAL_SEPARATOR_NOT_SET (0)
A period is used as the decimal separator. This is the default.
DB2BaseDataSource.DECIMAL_SEPARATOR_PERIOD (1)
A period is used as the decimal separator.
DB2BaseDataSource.DECIMAL_SEPARATOR_COMMA (2)
A comma is used as the decimal separator.
When DECIMAL_SEPARATOR_COMMA is set, the result of
ResultSet.getString on a decimal, floating point, or decimal
floating-point value has a comma as a separator. However, if the
toString method is executed on a value that is retrieved with a
ResultSet.getXXX method that returns a decimal, floating point, or
decimal floating-point value, the result has a decimal point as the
decimal separator.
decimalStringFormat
Specifies the string format for data that is retrieved from a DECIMAL or
DECFLOAT column when the SDK for Java is Version 1.5 or later. The data
type of this property is int. Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.DECIMAL_STRING_FORMAT_NOT_SET (0)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ returns decimal values
in the format that the java.math.BigDecimal.toString method returns
them. This is the default.
For example, the value 0.0000000004 is returned as 4E-10.
DB2BaseDataSource.DECIMAL_STRING_FORMAT_TO_STRING (1)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ returns decimal values
in the format that the java.math.BigDecimal.toString method returns
them.
For example, the value 0.0000000004 is returned as 4E-10.
DB2BaseDataSource.DECIMAL_STRING_FORMAT_TO_PLAIN_STRING (2)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ returns decimal values
in the format that the java.math.BigDecimal.toPlainString method
returns them.
For example, the value 0.0000000004 is returned as 0.0000000004.
This property has no effect for earlier versions of the SDK for Java. For those
versions, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ returns decimal
values in the format that the java.math.BigDecimal.toString method returns
them.
defaultIsolationLevel
Specifies the default transaction isolation level for new connections. The data
type of this property is int. When defaultIsolationLevel is set on a DataSource,
all connections that are created from that DataSource have the default isolation
level that is specified by defaultIsolationLevel.
For DB2 data sources, the default is
java.sql.Connection.TRANSACTION_READ_COMMITTED.
For IBM Informix databases, the default depends on the type of data source.
The following table shows the defaults.
250
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Table 38. Default isolation levels for IBM Informix databases
Type of data source
Default isolation level
ANSI-compliant database with logging
java.sql.Connection.TRANSACTION_SERIALIZABLE
Database without logging
java.sql.Connection.TRANSACTION_READ_UNCOMMITTED
Non-ANSI-compliant database with
logging
java.sql.Connection.TRANSACTION_READ_COMMITTED
deferPrepares
Specifies whether invocation of the Connection.prepareStatement method
results in immediate preparation of an SQL statement on the data source, or
whether statement preparation is deferred until the PreparedStatement.execute
method is executed. The data type of this property is boolean.
deferPrepares is supported for IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 2 connectivity to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, and for IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity.
Possible values are:
true
Statement preparation on the data source does not occur until the
PreparedStatement.execute method is executed. This is the default.
false
Statement preparation on the data source occurs when the
Connection.prepareStatement method is executed.
Deferring prepare operations can reduce network delays. However, if you defer
prepare operations, you need to ensure that input data types match table
column types.
description
A description of the data source. The data type of this property is String.
downgradeHoldCursorsUnderXa
Specifies whether cursors that are defined WITH HOLD can be opened under
XA connections.
downgradeHoldCursorsUnderXa applies to:
v IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity to DB2 for
z/OS servers.
v IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity or IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to DB2 for Linux,
UNIX, and Windows servers.
The default is false, which means that a cursor that is defined WITH HOLD
cannot be opened under an XA connection. An exception is thrown when an
attempt is made to open that cursor.
If downgradeHoldCursorsUnderXa is set to true, a cursor that is defined
WITH HOLD can be opened under an XA connection. However, the cursor has
the following restrictions:
v When the cursor is opened under an XA connection, the cursor does not
have WITH HOLD behavior. The cursor is closed at XA End.
v A cursor that is open before XA Start on a local transaction is closed at XA
Start.
driverType
For the DataSource interface, determines which driver to use for connections.
The data type of this property is int. Valid values are 2 or 4. 2 is the default.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
251
enableClientAffinitiesList
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ enables
client affinities for cascaded failover support. The data type of this property is
int. Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ enables client affinities
for cascaded failover support. This means that only servers that are
specified in the clientRerouteAlternateServerName and
clientRerouteAlternatePortNumber properties are retried. The driver
does not attempt to reconnect to any other servers.
For example, suppose that clientRerouteAlternateServerName contains
the following string:
host1,host2,host3
Also suppose that clientRerouteAlternatePortNumber contains the
following string:
port1,port2,port3
When client affinities are enabled, the retry order is:
1. host1:port1
2. host2:port2
3. host3:port3
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not enable client
affinities for cascaded failover support.
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not enable client
affinities for cascaded failover support. This is the default.
The effect of the maxRetriesForClientReroute and retryIntervalForClientReroute
properties differs depending on whether enableClientAffinitiesList is enabled.
This property applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type
4 connectivity.
enableNamedParameterMarkers
Specifies whether support for named parameter markers is enabled in the IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ. The data type of this property is int.
Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
Named parameter marker support is enabled in the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ.
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
Named parameter marker support is not enabled in the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ.
The driver sends an SQL statement with named parameter markers to
the target data source without modification. The success or failure of
the statement depends on a number of factors, including the following
ones:
v Whether the target data source supports named parameter markers
v Whether the deferPrepares property value is true of false
v Whether the sendDataAsIs property value is true of false
252
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Recommendation: To avoid unexpected behavior in an application
that uses named parameter markers, set
enableNamedParameterMarkers to YES.
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
The behavior is the same as the behavior for DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2).
This is the default.
enableSeamlessFailover
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses
seamless failover for client reroute. The data type of this property is int.
For connections to DB2 for z/OS, if enableSysplexWLB is set to true,
enableSeamlessFailover has no effect. The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ uses seamless failover regardless of the enableSeamlessFailover
setting.
Possible values of enableSeamlessFailover are:
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses seamless failover.
This means that the driver does not throw an SQLException with SQL
error code -4498 after a failed connection has been successfully
re-established if the following conditions are true:
v The connection was not being used for a transaction at the time the
failure occurred.
v There are no outstanding global resources, such as global temporary
tables or open, held cursors, or connection states that prevent a
seamless failover to another server.
When seamless failover occurs, after the connection to a new data
source has been established, the driver re-issues the SQL statement that
was being processed when the original connection failed.
Recommendation: Set the queryCloseImplicit property to
DB2BaseDataSource.QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_NO (2) when you set
enableSeamlessFailover to DB2BaseDataSource.YES, if the application
uses held cursors.
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not use seamless
failover.
When this setting is in effect, if a server goes down, the driver tries to
fail back or fail over to an alternate server. If failover or failback is
successful, the driver throws an SQLException with SQL error code
-4498, which indicates that a connection failed but was successfully
reestablished. An SQLException with SQL error code -4498 informs the
application that it should retry the transaction during which the
connection failure occurred. If the driver cannot reestablish a
connection, it throws an SQLException with SQL error code -4499.
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not use seamless
failover. This is the default.
enableSysplexWLB
Indicates whether the Sysplex workload balancing function of the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ is enabled. The data type of
enableSysplexWLB is boolean. The default is false.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
253
enablSysplexWLB applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity.
fetchSize
Specifies the default fetch size for ResultSet objects that are generated from
Statement objects. The data type of this property is int.
The fetchSize default can be overridden by the Statement.setFetchSize
method. The fetchSize property does not affect Statement objects that already
exist when fetchSize is set.
Possible values of fetchSize are:
0 or positive-integer
The default fetchSize value for newly created Statement objects. If the
fetchSize property value is invalid, the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ sets the default fetchSize value to 0.
DB2BaseDataSource.FETCHSIZE_NOT_SET (-1)
Indicates that the default fetchSize value for Statement objects is 0. This
is the property default.
The fetchSize property differs from the queryDataSize property. fetchSize
affects the number of rows that are returned, and queryDataSize affects the
number of bytes that are returned.
fullyMaterializeLobData
Indicates whether the driver retrieves LOB locators for FETCH operations. The
data type of this property is boolean.
The effect of fullyMaterializeLobData depends on whether the data source
supports progressive streaming, which is also known as dynamic data format:
v If the data source does not support progressive streaming:
If the value of fullyMaterializeLobData is true, LOB data is fully
materialized within the JDBC driver when a row is fetched. If the value is
false, LOB data is streamed. The driver uses locators internally to retrieve
LOB data in chunks on an as-needed basis It is highly recommended that
you set this value to false when you retrieve LOBs that contain large
amounts of data. The default is true.
v If the data source supports progressive streaming:
The JDBC driver ignores the value of fullyMaterializeLobData if the
progressiveStreaming property is set to DB2BaseDataSource.YES or
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET.
This property has no effect on stored procedure parameters or on LOBs that
are fetched using scrollable cursors. LOB stored procedure parameters are
always fully materialized. LOBs that are fetched using scrollable cursors use
LOB locators if progressive streaming is not in effect.
implicitRollbackOption
Specifies the actions that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ takes
when a transaction encounters a deadlock or a timeout. Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.IMPLICIT_ROLLBACK_OPTION_NOT_CLOSE_CONNECTION (1)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ throws an
SQLException with an SQL error code that indicates that a deadlock or
timeout occurred. The SQL error code is the SQL error code that is
generated by the data server after a deadlock or timeout. The driver
does not close the connection.
254
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
DB2BaseDataSource.IMPLICIT_ROLLBACK_OPTION_CLOSE_CONNECTION (2)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ throws a
DisconnectException with SQL error code -4499 when a deadlock or
timeout occurs. The driver closes the connection. If automatic client
reroute or Sysplex workload balancing is enabled, the driver disables
automatic failover behavior.
DB2BaseDataSource.IMPLICIT_ROLLBACK_OPTION_NOT_SET (0)
This is the default. The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
throws an SQLException with an SQL error code that indicates that a
deadlock or timeout occurred. The SQL error code is the SQL error
code that is generated by the data server after a deadlock or timeout.
The driver does not close the connection.
interruptProcessingMode
Specifies the behavior of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ when
an application executes the Statement.cancel method. Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_DISABLED (0)
Interrupt processing is disabled. When an application executes
Statement.cancel, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
does nothing.
DB2BaseDataSource.INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_STATEMENT_CANCEL (1)
When an application executes Statement.cancel, the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ cancels the currently executing statement, if
the data server supports interrupt processing. If the data server does
not support interrupt processing, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ throws an SQLException that indicates that the feature is not
supported.
INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_STATEMENT_CANCEL is the
default.
For DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows clients, when
interruptProcessingMode is set to
INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_STATEMENT_CANCEL, the DB2
Connect setting for INTERRUPT_ENABLED and the DB2 registry
variable setting for DB2CONNECT_DISCONNECT_ON_INTERRUPT
override this value.
DB2BaseDataSource.INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_CLOSE_SOCKET (2)
When an application executes Statement.cancel, the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ drops the underlying socket. The connection
is not closed and can be reused to resubmit the statement. When the
connection is reused, the driver obtains a new socket.
For connections to DB2 for z/OS data servers, the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ always uses this value, regardless of the
value that is specified.
keepAliveTimeout
The maximum time in seconds before each TCP KeepAlive signal is sent to the
data server. The data type of this property is int. The default is 15 seconds.
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity uses the
TCP/IP protocol to communicate with data servers. To prevent potential
failover issues caused by timeouts within the TCP/IP layer, it is necessary to
adjust the TCP/IP KeepAlive parameters on the client. Decreasing the
KeepAlive values on the client improves timely detection of server failures.
A value of 0 means that the timeout value is the default system timeout value.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
255
keepAliveTimeout is supported only for IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ type 4 connectivity.
loginTimeout
The maximum time in seconds to wait for a connection to a data source. After
the number of seconds that are specified by loginTimeout have elapsed, the
driver closes the connection to the data source. The data type of this property
is int. The default is 0. A value of 0 means that the timeout value is the default
system timeout value. This property is not supported for IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
If the data server environment is a DB2 for z/OS Sysplex workload balancing
environment or a DB2 pureScale environment, the wait time for a connection is
determined by a combination of loginTimeout, maxRetriesForClientReroute,
and retryIntervalForClientReroute. loginTimeout determines only the time for a
single attempt to establish a connection to a data server. There might be
multiple attempts to establish a connection, based on the
maxRetriesForClientReroute value. There might also be gaps between attempts
to establish a connection, based on the retryIntervalForClientReroute value.
During automatic client reroute processing, the memberConnectTimeout
property takes precedence over the loginTimeout property.
|
|
logWriter
The character output stream to which all logging and trace messages for the
DataSource object are printed. The data type of this property is
java.io.PrinterWriter. The default value is null, which means that no logging
or tracing for the DataSource is output.
maxRetriesForClientReroute
During automatic client reroute, limits the number of retries if the primary
connection to the data server fails.
The data type of this property is int.
The meaning of a retry and the default depend on the data server:
v For connections to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows or IBM Informix
data servers:
– Meaning of a retry: If enableClientAffinitiesList is set to
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2), an attempt to connect to the primary server
and alternate servers counts as one retry.
If enableClientAffinitiesList is set to DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1), an
attempt to connect to each server that is specified by the
clientRerouteAlternateServerName and clientRerouteAlternatePortNumber
values counts as one retry. Each server connection is retried the number
of times that is specified by maxRetriesForClientReroute.
– Default: If enableClientAffinitiesList is set to DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2),
and maxRetriesForClientReroute and retryIntervalForClientReroute are
not set, the connection is retried for 10 minutes, with a wait time between
retries that increases as the length of time from the first retry increases.
If enableClientAffinitiesList is DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1), the default is
3.
v For connections to DB2 for z/OS data servers:
– Meaning of a retry:
- For version 3.66 or 4.16, or later, one retry means one attempt to
connect to all members of the data sharing group other than the failed
member, and to the group IP address.
|
|
|
256
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
-
|
|
|
For versions of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ before
3.66 or 4.16, one retry means an attempt to connect to one member of
the data sharing group.
– Default:
- For version 3.66 or 4.16, or later, of the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ, the default is 1.
-
For versions 3.64, 4.14, 3.65, or 4.15, the default is 5.
For versions of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ before
3.64 and 4.14, the connection is retried for 10 minutes, with a wait time
between retries that increases as the length of time from the first retry
increases.
If the value of maxRetriesForClientReroute is 0, client reroute processing does
not occur.
maxStatements
Controls an internal statement cache that is associated with a Connection. The
data type of this property is int. Possible values are:
positive integer
Enables the internal statement cache for a Connection, and specifies the
number of statements that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ keeps open in the cache.
0 or negative integer
Disables internal statement caching for the Connection. 0 is the default.
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2SimpleDataSource.maxStatements controls the internal
statement cache that is associated with a Connection only when the Connection
object is created. com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2SimpleDataSource.maxStatements has no
effect on caching in an already existing Connection object.
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2SimpleDataSource.maxStatements applies only to IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity.
memberConnectTimeout
Specifies the amount of time in seconds before an attempt to open a socket to a
member of a DB2 for z/OS data sharing group, DB2 pureScale instance, or
IBM Informix high availability cluster fails. The data type of this property is
int.
|
|
|
|
memberConnectTimeout applies only to socket connection attempts to different
members during automatic client reroute processing. The
memberConnectTimeout property takes precedence over the loginTimeout
property.
For connections to DB2 for z/OS data servers, the default is one second. For
connections to other data servers, the default is 0.
If the memberConnectTimeout value is less than or equal to 0, the driver uses
the loginTimeout value to determine how long to wait before failing a
connection request.
The memberConnectTimeout value is used for every socket open operation to
each member in a member list.
For a connection to a DB2 for z/OS data sharing group, after all attempts to
open a socket to all members fail, the driver retries the socket open using a
group IP address. For that retry, the driver uses the loginTimeout value to
determine how long to wait before failing the connection request.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
257
password
The password to use for establishing connections. The data type of this
property is String. When you use the DataSource interface to establish a
connection, you can override this property value by invoking this form of the
DataSource.getConnection method:
getConnection(user, password);
portNumber
The port number where the DRDA server is listening for requests. The data
type of this property is int.
This property is applicable only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity.
progressiveStreaming
Specifies whether the JDBC driver uses progressive streaming when
progressive streaming is supported on the data source.
DB2 for z/OS Version 9.1 and later supports progressive streaming for LOBs
and XML objects. DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Version 9.5 and later,
and IBM Informix Version 11.50 and later support progressive streaming for
LOBs.
With progressive streaming, also known as dynamic data format, the data
source dynamically determines the most efficient mode in which to return LOB
or XML data, based on the size of the LOBs or XML objects. The value of the
streamBufferSize parameter determines whether the data is materialized when
it is returned.
The data type of progressiveStreaming is int. Valid values are
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1) and DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2). If the
progressiveStreaming property is not specified, the progressiveStreaming value
is DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0).
If the connection is to a data source that supports progressive streaming, and
the value of progressiveStreaming is DB2BaseDataSource.YES or
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET, the JDBC driver uses progressive streaming to
return LOBs and XML data.
If the value of progressiveStreaming is DB2BaseDataSource.NO, or the data
source does not support progressive streaming, the way in which the JDBC
driver returns LOB or XML data depends on the value of the
fullyMaterializeLobData property.
queryCloseImplicit
Specifies whether cursors are closed immediately after all rows are fetched.
queryCloseImplicit applies only to connections to IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity to DB2 for z/OS Version 8 or later, and
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity or IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivityDB2 for Linux, UNIX, and
Windows Version 9.7 or later. Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_YES (1)
Close cursors immediately after all rows are fetched.
A value of DB2BaseDataSource.QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_YES can provide
better performance because this setting results in less network traffic.
DB2BaseDataSource.QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_NO (2)
Do not close cursors immediately after all rows are fetched.
258
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
DB2BaseDataSource.QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_COMMIT (3)
Perform these actions:
v Implicitly close the cursor after all rows are fetched.
v If the application is in autocommit mode, implicitly send a commit
request to the data source for the current unit of work.
Important: When this value is set, there might be impacts on other
resources, just as an explicit commit operation might impact other
resources. For example, other non-held cursors are closed, LOB locators
go out of scope, progressive references are reset, and scrollable cursors
lose their position.
Restriction: The following restrictions apply to
QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_COMMIT behavior:
v This behavior applies only to SELECT statements that are issued by
the application. It does not apply to SELECT statements that are
generated by the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ.
v If QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_COMMIT is set, and the application is
not in autocommit mode, the driver uses the default behavior
(QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_NOT_SET behavior). If
QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_COMMIT is the default behavior, the
driver uses QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_YES behavior.
v If QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_COMMIT is set, and the data source
does not support QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_COMMIT behavior, the
driver uses QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_YES behavior.
v This behavior is not supported for batched statements.
v This behavior is supported on an XA Connection only when the
connection is in a local transaction.
DB2BaseDataSource.QUERY_CLOSE_IMPLICIT_NOT_SET (0)
This is the default. The following table describes the behavior for a
connection to each type of data source.

queryDataSize
Specifies a hint that is used to control the amount of query data, in bytes, that
is returned from the data source on each fetch operation. This value can be
used to optimize the application by controlling the number of trips to the data
source that are required to retrieve data.
Use of a larger value for queryDataSize can result in less network traffic,
which can result in better performance. For example, if the result set size is 50
KB, and the value of queryDataSize is 32767 (32KB), two trips to the database
server are required to retrieve the result set. However, if queryDataSize is set
to 65535 (64 KB), only one trip to the data source is required to retrieve the
result set.
The following table lists minimum, maximum, and default values of
queryDataSize for each data source.

Note:
1. If you specify a value between the minimum and maximum value that is not a valid value, the IBM Data Server

queryTimeoutInterruptProcessingMode
Specifies what happens when the query timeout interval for a Statement object
expires. Valid values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_STATEMENT_CANCEL (1)
Specifies that when the query timeout interval for a Statement object
expires, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ cancels the
currently executing SQL statement and throws an exception with SQL
error -952, if the data server supports interruption of SQL statements. If
the data server does not support interruption of SQL statements, the
driver throws an exception that indicates that the feature is not
supported.
For connections to data servers other than DB2 for z/OS,
INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_STATEMENT_CANCEL is the
default.
For connections to DB2 for z/OS data servers,
INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_STATEMENT_CANCEL is not a
possible value. If it is specified, the driver uses
INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_CLOSE_SOCKET instead.
DB2BaseDataSource.INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_CLOSE_SOCKET
(2)
Specifies that the underlying socket is dropped and the connection is
closed when the query timeout interval for a Statement object expires.
For connections to data servers other than DB2 for z/OS, when the
Statement object times out:
v If automatic client reroute is not enabled and enableSysplexWLB is
set to false, an exception with SQL error code -4499 is thrown. Any
subsequent operations on the Statement object, or on any other
Statement objects that were created from the same connection
receive an Exception that indicates that the connection is closed.
After a Statement object times out, the application must establish a
new connection before it can execute a new transaction.
v If automatic client reroute is enabled, and enableSysplexWLB is set
to false, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ tries to
re-establish a connection. If a new connection is successfully
re-established, the driver returns an SQL error code of -4498.
However, the driver does not execute the timed-out SQL statements
again, even if enableSeamlessFailover is set to
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1).
v If enableSysplexWLB is set to true, the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ tries to re-establish a connection. If a new
connection is successfully re-established, the driver returns an SQL
error code of -30108. However, the driver does not execute the
timed-out SQL statements again, even if enableSeamlessFailover is
set to DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1).
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
261
For connections to DB2 for z/OS, when the Statement object times out:
v If enableSysplexWLB is set to false, an exception with SQL error
code -4499 is thrown. Any subsequent operations on the Statement
object, or on any other Statement objects that were created from the
same connection receive an Exception that indicates that the
connection is closed. After a Statement object times out, the
application must establish a new connection before it can execute a

connection is successfully re-established, the driver returns an SQL
error code of -30108. However, the driver does not execute the
timed-out SQL statements again, even if enableSeamlessFailover is
set to DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1).
resultSetHoldability
Specifies whether cursors remain open after a commit operation. The data type
of this property is int. Valid values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.HOLD_CURSORS_OVER_COMMIT (1)
Leave cursors open after a commit operation.
This setting is not valid for a connection that is part of a distributed
(XA) transaction.
DB2BaseDataSource.CLOSE_CURSORS_AT_COMMIT (2)
Close cursors after a commit operation.
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
This is the default value. The behavior is:
v For connections that are part of distributed (XA) transactions,
cursors are closed after a commit operation.
v For connections that are not part of a distributed transaction:
– For connections to all versions of DB2 for z/OS, DB2 for Linux,
UNIX, and Windows, or DB2 for i servers, or to Cloudscape
Version 8.1 or later servers, cursors remain open after a commit
operation.
– For connections to all versions of IBM Informix, or to Cloudscape
versions earlier than Version 8.1, cursors are closed after a commit
operation.
retrieveMessagesFromServerOnGetMessage
Specifies whether JDBC SQLException.getMessage or SQLWarning.getMessage
calls cause the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ to invoke a DB2 for
z/OS stored procedure that retrieves the message text for the error. The data
type of this property is boolean. The default is false, which means that the full
message text is not returned to the client.
For example, if retrieveMessagesFromServerOnGetMessage is set to true, a
message similar to this one is returned by SQLException.getMessage after an
attempt to perform an SQL operation on nonexistent table
ADMF001.NO_TABLE:
ADMF001.NO_TABLE IS AN UNDEFINED NAME. SQLCODE=-204,
SQLSTATE=42704, DRIVER=3.50.54
If retrieveMessagesFromServerOnGetMessage is set to false, a message similar
to this one is returned:
DB2 SQL Error: SQLCODE=-204, SQLSTATE=42704, DRIVER=3.50.54
262
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
An alternative to setting this property to true is to use the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ-only DB2Sqlca.getMessage method in applications.
Both techniques result in a stored procedure call, which starts a unit of work.
retryIntervalForClientReroute
For automatic client reroute, specifies the amount of time in seconds between
connection retries.
The data type of this property is int.
The meaning of a retry and the default depend on the data server:
v For connections to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows or IBM Informix
data servers:
– Meaning of a retry: If enableClientAffinitiesList is set to
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2), an attempt to connect to the primary server
and alternate servers counts as one retry.
If enableClientAffinitiesList is set to DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1), an
attempt to connect to each server that is specified by the
clientRerouteAlternateServerName and clientRerouteAlternatePortNumber
values counts as one retry. Each server connection is retried the number
of times that is specified by maxRetriesForClientReroute.
– Default: If enableClientAffinitiesList is set to DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2),
and maxRetriesForClientReroute and retryIntervalForClientReroute are
not set, the connection is retried for 10 minutes, with a wait time between
retries that increases as the length of time from the first retry increases.
|
|
|
|
|
If enableClientAffinitiesList is DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1), the default is
0.
v For connections to DB2 for z/OS data servers:
– Meaning of a retry:
- For version 3.66 or 4.16, or later, one retry means one attempt to
connect to all members of the data sharing group other than the failed
member, and to the group IP address.
- For versions of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ before
3.66 or 4.16, one retry means an attempt to connect to one member of
the data sharing group.
– Default:
- For version 3.64 or 4.14, or later, of the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ, the default is 0.
- For versions of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ before
3.64 and 4.14, the connection is retried for 10 minutes, with a wait time
between retries that increases as the length of time from the first retry
increases.
securityMechanism
Specifies the DRDA security mechanism. The data type of this property is int.
Possible values are:
CLEAR_TEXT_PASSWORD_SECURITY (3)
User ID and password
USER_ONLY_SECURITY (4)
User ID only
ENCRYPTED_PASSWORD_SECURITY (7)
User ID, encrypted password
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
263
ENCRYPTED_USER_AND_PASSWORD_SECURITY (9)
Encrypted user ID and password
KERBEROS_SECURITY (11)
Kerberos. This value does not apply to connections to IBM Informix.
ENCRYPTED_USER_AND_DATA_SECURITY (12)
Encrypted user ID and encrypted security-sensitive data. This value
applies to connections to DB2 for z/OS only.
ENCRYPTED_USER_PASSWORD_AND_DATA_SECURITY (13)
Encrypted user ID and password, and encrypted security-sensitive
data. This value does not apply to connections to IBM Informix.
PLUGIN_SECURITY (15)
Plug-in security. This value applies to connections to DB2 for Linux,
UNIX, and Windows only.
ENCRYPTED_USER_ONLY_SECURITY (16)
Encrypted user ID. This value does not apply to connections to IBM
Informix.
TLS_CLIENT_CERTIFICATE_SECURITY (18)
Client certificate security, using SSL. This value applies to connections
to DB2 for z/OS Version 10 and later only.
If this property is specified, the specified security mechanism is the only
mechanism that is used. If the security mechanism is not supported by the
connection, an exception is thrown.
The default value for securityMechanism is provided by the
db2.jcc.securityMechanism configuration property. If the
db2.jcc.securityMechanism configuration property is also not specified, the
default value for securityMechanism is CLEAR_TEXT_PASSWORD_SECURITY.
If the data server does not support CLEAR_TEXT_PASSWORD_SECURITY but
supports ENCRYPTED_USER_AND_PASSWORD_SECURITY, the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ driver upgrades the security mechanism to
ENCRYPTED_USER_AND_PASSWORD_SECURITY and attempts to connect to
the server. Any other mismatch in security mechanism support between the
requester and the server results in an error.
This property does not apply to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
Security mechanisms ENCRYPTED_PASSWORD_SECURITY,
ENCRYPTED_USER_AND_PASSWORD_SECURITY,
ENCRYPTED_USER_AND_DATA_SECURITY,
ENCRYPTED_USER_PASSWORD_AND_DATA_SECURITY, and
ENCRYPTED_USER_ONLY_SECURITY use DRDA encryption. DRDA
encryption is not intended to provide confidentiality and integrity of
passwords or data over a network that is not secure, such as the Internet.
DRDA encryption uses an anonymous key exchange, Diffie-Hellman, which
does not provide authentication of the server or the client. DRDA encryption is
vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks.
sendDataAsIs
Specifies that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not convert
input parameter values to the target column data types. The data type of this
property is boolean. The default is false.

socket to connect to the data source. If sslConnection is set to true, the
connection uses an SSL socket. If sslConnection is set to false, the connection
uses a plain socket.
|
|
|
The default value for sslConnection is provided by the db2.jcc.sslConnection
configuration property. If the db2.jcc.sslConnection configuration property is
also not specified, the default value for sslConnection is false.
This property is applicable only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity.
sslTrustStoreLocation
Specifies the name of the Java truststore on the client that contains the server
certificate for an SSL connection.
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses this option only if the
sslConnection property is set to true.
If sslTrustStoreLocation is set, and sslConnection is set to true, the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses the sslTrustStoreLocation value instead
of the value in the javax.net.ssl.trustStore Java property.
|
|
|
|
The default value for sslTrustStoreLocation is provided by the
db2.jcc.sslTrustStoreLocation configuration property. If the
db2.jcc.sslTrustStoreLocation configuration property is also not specified, the
default value for sslTrustStoreLocation is null.
This property is applicable only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity.
sslTrustStorePassword
Specifies the password for the Java truststore on the client that contains the
server certificate for an SSL connection.
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses this option only if the
sslConnection property is set to true.
If sslTrustStorePassword is set, and sslConnection is set to true, the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses the sslTrustStorePassword value instead
of the value in the javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword Java property.
|
|
|
|
The default value for sslTrustStorePassword is provided by the
db2.jcc.sslTrustStorePassword configuration property. If the
db2.jcc.sslTrustStorePassword configuration property is also not specified, the
default value for sslTrustStorePassword is null.
This property is applicable only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity.
stripTrailingZerosForDecimalNumbers
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ removes
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
265
trailing zeroes when it retrieves data from a DECFLOAT, DECIMAL, or
NUMERIC column. This property is meaningful only if the SDK for Java is
Version 1.5 or later. The data type of this property is int.
Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not remove
trailing zeroes from the retrieved value. This is the default.
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ removes trailing
zeroes when it retrieves a value from a DECFLOAT, DECIMAL, or
NUMERIC column as a java.math.BigDecimal object.
For example, when the driver retrieves the value 234.04000, it returns
the value 234.04 to the application.
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not remove
trailing zeroes from the retrieved value.
timerLevelForQueryTimeOut
Specifies the level at which the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
creates a java.util.Timer object for waiting for query execution to time out.
Possible values are:

1
yyyy-mm-ddhh.mm.ss.nnnnnnnnn1
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.JDBC
5
yyyy-mm-dd
hh:mm:ss.nnnnnnnnn1
Format
Note:
1. The number of digits in the fractional part of the timestamp depends on the precision of
the TIMESTAMP(p) column in the source table. If p<9, p digits are returned. If p>=9, 9
digits are returned, and the remaining digits are truncated.
The default is com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.JDBC.
timestampFormat affects the format of output only.
266
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
timestampPrecisionReporting
Specifies whether trailing zeroes are truncated in the result of a
Resultset.getString call for a TIMESTAMP value. The data type of this
property is int. Possible values are:
TIMESTAMP_JDBC_STANDARD (1)
Trailing zeroes are truncated in the result of a Resultset.getString call
for a TIMESTAMP value. This is the default.
For example:
v A TIMESTAMP value of 2009-07-19-10.12.00.000000 is truncated to
2009-07-19-10.12.00.0 after retrieval.
v A TIMESTAMP value of 2009-12-01-11.30.00.100000 is truncated to
2009-12-01-11.30.00.1 after retrieval.
TIMESTAMP_ZERO_PADDING (2)
Trailing zeroes are not truncated in the result of a Resultset.getString
call for a TIMESTAMP value.
traceDirectory
Specifies a directory into which trace information is written. The data type of
this property is String. When traceDirectory is specified, trace information for
multiple connections on the same DataSource is written to multiple files.
When traceDirectory is specified, a connection is traced to a file named
traceFile_origin_n.
n is the nth connection for a DataSource.
origin indicates the origin of the log writer that is in use. Possible values of
origin are:
cpds
The log writer for a DB2ConnectionPoolDataSource object.
driver The log writer for a DB2Driver object.
global The log writer for a DB2TraceManager object.
sds
The log writer for a DB2SimpleDataSource object.
xads
The log writer for a DB2XADataSource object.
If the traceFile property is also specified, the traceDirectory value is not used.
traceFile
Specifies the name of a file into which the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ writes trace information. The data type of this property is String.
The traceFile property is an alternative to the logWriter property for directing
the output trace stream to a file.
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity, the
db2.jcc.override.traceFile configuration property value overrides the traceFile
property value.
Recommendation: Set the db2.jcc.override.traceFile configuration property,
rather than setting the traceFile property for individual connections.
traceFileAppend
Specifies whether to append to or overwrite the file that is specified by the
traceFile property. The data type of this property is boolean. The default is
false, which means that the file that is specified by the traceFile property is

v com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.TRACE_TRACEPOINTS (X'40000')
v com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.TRACE_ALL (X'FFFFFFFF')
To specify more than one trace, use one of these techniques:
v Use bitwise OR (|) operators with two or more trace values. For example, to
trace DRDA flows and connection calls, specify this value for traceLevel:
TRACE_DRDA_FLOWS|TRACE_CONNECTION_CALLS
v Use a bitwise complement (~) operator with a trace value to specify all
except a certain trace. For example, to trace everything except DRDA flows,
specify this value for traceLevel:
~TRACE_DRDA_FLOWS
traceFileCount
Specifies the maximum number of trace files for circular tracing. The IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses this property only when traceOption is
set to DB2BaseDataSource.TRACE_OPTION_CIRCULAR (1). The data type of this
property is int. The default value is 2.
traceFileSize
Specifies the maximum size of each trace file, for circular tracing. The IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses this property only when
traceOption is set to DB2BaseDataSource.TRACE_OPTION_CIRCULAR (1). The data
type of this property is int. The default value is 10485760 (10 MB).
useJDBC41DefinitionForGetColumns
Specifies whether the DatabaseMetaData.getColumns method returns a result set
with a column with the name SCOPE_CATALOG or SCOPE_CATLOG.
Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
Specifies that for version 4.13 or later of the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ, the result set from DatabaseMetaData.getColumns
contains a column named SCOPE_CATALOG. For version 4.12 or
earlier of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, that column
is named SCOPE_CATLOG.
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
Specifies that for version 4.13 or later of the IBM Data Server Driver
268
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
for JDBC and SQLJ, the result set from DatabaseMetaData.getColumns
contains a column named SCOPE_CATALOG. For version 4.12 or
earlier of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, that column
is named SCOPE_CATLOG.
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
Specifies that for all versions of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ, the result set from DatabaseMetaData.getColumns contains a
column named SCOPE_CATLOG.
traceOption
Specifies the way in which trace data is collected. The data type of this
property is int. Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
Specifies that a single trace file is generated, and that there is no limit
to the size of the file. This is the default.
If the value of traceOption is NOT_SET, the traceFileSize and
traceFileCount properties are ignored.
DB2BaseDataSource.TRACE_OPTION_CIRCULAR (1)
Specifies that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does
circular tracing. Circular tracing is done as follows:
1. When an application writes its first trace record, the driver creates a
file.
2. The driver writes trace data to the file.
3. When the size of the file is equal to the value of property
traceFileSize, the driver creates another file.
4. The driver repeats steps 2 and 3 until the number of files to which
data has been written is equal to the value of property
traceFileCount.
5. The driver writes data to the first trace file, overwriting the existing
data.
6. The driver repeats steps 3 through 5 until the application
completes.
The file names for the trace files are the file names that are determined
by the traceFile or traceDirectory property, appended with .1 for the
first file, .2 for the second file, and so on.
user
The user ID to use for establishing connections. The data type of this property
is String. When you use the DataSource interface to establish a connection, you
can override this property value by invoking this form of the
DataSource.getConnection method:
getConnection(user, password);
xaNetworkOptimization
Specifies whether XA network optimization is enabled for IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity. You might need to disable XA
network optimization in an environment in which an XA Start and XA End are
issued from one Java process, and an XA Prepare and an XA Commit are
issued from another Java process. With XA network optimization, the XA
Prepare can reach the data source before the XA End, which results in an
XAER_PROTO error. To prevent the XAER_PROTO error, disable XA network
optimization.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
269
The default is true, which means that XA network optimization is enabled. If
xaNetworkOptimization is false, which means that XA network optimization
is disabled, the driver closes any open cursors at XA End time.
xaNetworkOptimization can be set on a DataSource object, or in the url
parameter in a getConnection call. The value of xaNetworkOptimization
cannot be changed after a connection is obtained.

properties follow the precedence rules for the CURRENT PACKAGESET and
CURRENT PACKAGE PATH special registers.
currentPackageSet
Specifies the collection ID to search for JDBC and SQLJ packages. The data
type of this property is String. The default is NULLID for IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity. For IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity, if a value for currentPackageSet is not
specified, the property value is not set. If currentPackageSet is set, its value
overrides the value of jdbcCollection.
Multiple instances of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ can be
installed at a database server by running the DB2Binder utility multiple times.
The DB2binder utility includes a -collection option that lets the installer specify
the collection ID for each IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ instance.
To choose an instance of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ for a
connection, you specify a currentPackageSet value that matches the collection
ID for one of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ instances.
The precedence rules for the currentPackagePath and currentPackageSet
properties follow the precedence rules for the CURRENT PACKAGESET and
CURRENT PACKAGE PATH special registers.
272
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
currentRefreshAge
Specifies a timestamp duration value that is the maximum duration since a
REFRESH TABLE statement was processed on a system-maintained REFRESH
DEFERRED materialized query table such that the materialized query table can
be used to optimize the processing of a query. This property affects dynamic
statement cache matching. The data type of this property is long.
currentSchema
Specifies the default schema name that is used to qualify unqualified database
objects in dynamically prepared SQL statements. The value of this property
sets the value in the CURRENT SCHEMA special register on the database
server. The schema name is case-sensitive, and must be specified in uppercase
characters.
cursorSensitivity
Specifies whether the java.sql.ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE value for a
JDBC ResultSet maps to the SENSITIVE DYNAMIC attribute, the SENSITIVE
STATIC attribute, or the ASENSITIVE attribute for the underlying database
cursor. The data type of this property is int. Possible values are
TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE_STATIC (0), TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE_DYNAMIC (1), or
TYPE_SCROLL_ASENSITIVE (2). The default is TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE_STATIC.
If the data source does not support sensitive dynamic scrollable cursors, and
TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE_DYNAMIC is requested, the JDBC driver accumulates a
warning and maps the sensitivity to SENSITIVE STATIC. For DB2 for i
database servers, which do not support sensitive static cursors,
java.sql.ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE always maps to SENSITIVE
DYNAMIC.
dateFormat
Specifies:
v The format in which the String argument of the
PreparedStatement.setString method against a DATE column must be
specified.
v The format in which the result of the ResultSet.getString or
CallableStatement.getString method against a DATE column is returned.

Rounds the value towards 0 (truncation). The discarded digits are
ignored.
DB2BaseDataSource.ROUND_CEILING (2)
Rounds the value towards positive infinity. If all of the discarded digits
are zero or if the sign is negative the result is unchanged other than
the removal of the discarded digits. Otherwise, the result coefficient is
incremented by 1.
DB2BaseDataSource.ROUND_HALF_EVEN (3)
Rounds the value to the nearest value; if the values are equidistant,
rounds the value so that the final digit is even. If the discarded digits
represents greater than half (0.5) of the value of one in the next left
position then the result coefficient is incremented by 1. If they
represent less than half, then the result coefficient is not adjusted (that
is, the discarded digits are ignored). Otherwise the result coefficient is
unaltered if its rightmost digit is even, or is incremented by 1 if its
rightmost digit is odd (to make an even digit).
DB2BaseDataSource.ROUND_HALF_UP (4)
Rounds the value to the nearest value; if the values are equidistant,
rounds the value away from zero. If the discarded digits represent
greater than or equal to half (0.5) of the value of one in the next left
position then the result coefficient is incremented by 1. Otherwise the
discarded digits are ignored.
DB2BaseDataSource.ROUND_FLOOR (6)
Rounds the value towards negative infinity. If all of the discarded
digits are zero or if the sign is positive the result is unchanged other
than the removal of discarded digits. Otherwise, the sign is negative
and the result coefficient is incremented by 1.
DB2BaseDataSource.ROUND_UNSET (-2147483647)
No rounding mode was explicitly set. The IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ does not use the decimalRoundingMode to set the
rounding mode on the data server. The rounding mode is
ROUND_HALF_EVEN.
If you explicitly set the decimalRoundingMode value, that value updates the
CURRENT DECFLOAT ROUNDING MODE special register value on a DB2
for z/OS data server.
If you explicitly set the decimalRoundingMode value, that value does not
update the CURRENT DECFLOAT ROUNDING MODE special register value
on a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows data server. If the value to which
you set decimalRoundingMode is not the same as the value of the CURRENT
DECFLOAT ROUNDING MODE special register, an Exception is thrown. To
change the data server value, you need to set that value with the
decflt_rounding database configuration parameter.
decimalRoundingMode does not affect decimal value assignments. The IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ always rounds decimal values down.
enableAlternateGroupSeamlessACR
Specifies whether failover to an alternate group is seamless or non-seamless.
The data type of this property is boolean. Possible values are:
false
274
Failover is non-seamless. false is the default.
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
With non-seamless behavior, if an application that is currently
connected to a primary group is executing a transaction, and the entire
primary group goes down, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ fails over to alternate group. If failover is successful, the driver
throws an SQLException with SQL error code -30108.
true
Failover is seamless.
With seamless behavior, if an application that is currently connected to
a primary group is executing a transaction, and the entire primary
group goes down, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ fails
over to alternate group. If the transaction is eligible for seamless
failover, the connection is retried. If the connection is successful, no
SQLException is thrown.
For connections to DB2 for z/OS, only one value can be specified.
enableExtendedDescribe
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ requests
extended describe information from the data server when it prepares a
statement.
Extended describe information provides:
v Additional descriptive information for a cursor or a result set
v Information about whether a column:
– Can be updated
– Is a primary key or a preferred candidate key member
– Is an expression or a table column
– is a generated column or a table column
v The fully qualified view or table name
v The fully qualified column name
Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ requests extended
describe information. This is the default.
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ requests extended
describe information.
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not request
extended describe information.
Setting enableExtendedDescribe to DB2BaseDataSource.NO can result in
a performance benefit because it avoids the extra processing that the
driver must do to provide the additional information. However, if you
specify this is option, some methods throw an exception or return
unexpected results. The following table lists the behavior of methods
when enableExtendedDescribe is set to DB2BaseDataSource.NO.
Method
Result when extended describe is off
Connection.findAutoGeneratedKeysColumn
Returns an array of empty strings ("")
DB2ResultSetMetaData.getDBTemporalColumnType

(column not updatable)
ResultSetMetaData.getTableName,
ResultSetMetaData.getSchemaName,
ResultSetMetaData.getColumnName
Returns an empty string ("")
ResultSetMetaData.isAutoIncrement
Returns false
enableExtendedIndicators
Specifies whether support for extended indicators is enabled in the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ. Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
Support for extended indicators is enabled in the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ.
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
Support for extended indicators is disabled in the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ.
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
Support for extended indicators is enabled in the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ. This is the default value.
enableRowsetSupport
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses
multiple-row FETCH for forward-only cursors or scrollable cursors, if the data
server supports multiple-row FETCH. The data type of this property is int.
For connections to DB2 for z/OS, when enableRowsetSupport is set, its value
overrides the useRowsetCursor property value.
Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
Specifies that:
v For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity
to DB2 for z/OS, multiple-row FETCH is used for scrollable cursors
and forward-only cursors, if the data server supports multiple-row
FETCH.
v For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity,
or IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to
DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, multiple-row fetch is used for
scrollable cursors, if the data server supports multiple-row FETCH.
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
Specifies that multiple-row fetch is not used.
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
Specifies that if the enableRowsetSupport property is not set:
v For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity
to DB2 for z/OS, multiple-row fetch is not used.
v For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity
to DB2 for z/OS, multiple-row fetch is used if useRowsetCursor is
set to true.
276
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
v For connections to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, multiple
row fetch is used for scrollable cursors, if the data server supports
multiple-row FETCH.
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to DB2 for
z/OS, multiple-row fetch is not compatible with progressive streaming.
Therefore, if progressive streaming is used for a FETCH operation,
multiple-row FETCH is not used.
encryptionAlgorithm
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses 56-bit
DES (weak) encryption or 256-bit AES (strong) encryption. The data type of
this property is int. Possible values are:
1
The driver uses 56-bit DES encryption.
This value is the default, unless configuration property
db2.jcc.encryptionAlgorithm provides a different default.
2
The driver uses 256-bit AES encryption, if the database server supports
it. 256-bit AES encryption is available for IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity only.
For AES encryption, you need an unrestricted policy file for JCE. That
file is available at the following location:
https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/preLogin.do?source=jcesdk
encryptionAlgorithm can be specified only if the securityMechanism or
db2.jcc.securityMechanism value is ENCRYPTED_PASSWORD_SECURITY (7) or
ENCRYPTED_USER_AND_PASSWORD_SECURITY (9).
fullyMaterializeInputStreams
Indicates whether streams are fully materialized before they are sent from the
client to a data source. The data type of this property is boolean. The default is
false.
If the value of fullyMaterializeInputStreams is true, the JDBC driver fully
materialized the streams before sending them to the server.
gssCredential
For a data source that uses Kerberos security, specifies a delegated credential
that is passed from another principal. The data type of this property is
org.ietf.jgss.GSSCredential. Delegated credentials are used in multi-tier
environments, such as when a client connects to WebSphere Application Server,
which, in turn, connects to the data source. You obtain a value for this
property from the client, by invoking the GSSContext.getDelegCred method.
GSSContext is part of the IBM Java Generic Security Service (GSS) API. If you
set this property, you also need to set the Mechanism and
KerberosServerPrincipal properties.
This property is applicable only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity.
For more information on using Kerberos security with the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, see "Using Kerberos security under the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ".
kerberosServerPrincipal
For a data source that uses Kerberos security, specifies the name that is used
for the data source when it is registered with the Kerberos Key Distribution
Center (KDC). The data type of this property is String.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
277
This property is applicable only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity.
pdqProperties
Specifies properties that control the interaction between the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ and the client optimization feature of pureQuery.
The data type of this property is String.
Set the pdqProperties property only if you are using the client optimization
feature of pureQuery. See the Integrated Data Management Information Center
for information about valid values for pdqProperties.
readOnly
Specifies whether the connection is read-only. The data type of this property is
boolean. The default is false.
resultSetHoldabilityForCatalogQueries
Specifies whether cursors for queries that are executed on behalf of
DatabaseMetaData methods remain open after a commit operation. The data
type of this property is int.
When an application executes DatabaseMetaData methods, the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ executes queries against the catalog of the target
data source. By default, the holdability of those cursors is the same as the
holdability of application cursors. To use different holdability for catalog
queries, use the resultSetHoldabilityForCatalogQueries property. Possible
values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.HOLD_CURSORS_OVER_COMMIT (1)
Leave cursors for catalog queries open after a commit operation,
regardless of the resultSetHoldability setting.
DB2BaseDataSource.CLOSE_CURSORS_AT_COMMIT (2)
Close cursors for catalog queries after a commit operation, regardless
of the resultSetHoldability setting.
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
Use the resultSetHoldability setting for catalog queries. This is the
default value.
returnAlias
Specifies whether the JDBC driver returns rows for table aliases and synonyms
for DatabaseMetaData methods that return table information, such as
getTables. The data type of returnAlias is int. Possible values are:
0
Do not return rows for aliases or synonyms of tables in output from
DatabaseMetaData methods that return table information.
1
For tables that have aliases or synonyms, return rows for aliases and
synonyms of those tables, as well as rows for the tables, in output from
DatabaseMetaData methods that return table information. This is the
default.
statementConcentrator
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses the data
source's statement concentrator functionality. The statement concentrator is the
ability to bypass preparation of a statement when it is the same as a statement
in the dynamic statement cache, except for literal values. Statement
concentrator functionality applies only to SQL statements that have literals but
no parameter markers. Possible values are:
278
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
DB2BaseDataSource.STATEMENT_CONCENTRATOR_OFF (1)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not use the data
source's statement concentrator functionality.
DB2BaseDataSource.STATEMENT_CONCENTRATOR_WITH_LITERALS (2)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses the data source's
statement concentrator functionality.
DB2BaseDataSource.STATEMENT_CONCENTRATOR_NOT_SET (0)
Enables the data server's default behavior for statement concentrator
functionality. This is the default value.
For DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows data sources that support
statement concentrator functionality, the functionality is used if the
STMT_CONC configuration parameter is set to ON at the data source.
Otherwise, statement concentrator functionality is not used.
For DB2 for z/OS data sources that support statement concentrator
functionality, the functionality is not used if statementConcentrator is
not set.
streamBufferSize
Specifies the size, in bytes, of the JDBC driver buffers for chunking LOB or
XML data. The JDBC driver uses the streamBufferSize value whether or not it
uses progressive streaming. The data type of streamBufferSize is int. The
default is 1048576.
If the JDBC driver uses progressive streaming, LOB or XML data is
materialized if it fits in the buffers, and the driver does not use the
fullyMaterializeLobData property.
DB2 for z/OS Version 9.1 and later supports progressive streaming for LOBs
and XML objects. DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Version 9.5 and later,
and IBM Informix Version 11.50 and later support progressive streaming for
LOBs.
supportsAsynchronousXARollback
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports
asynchronous XA rollback operations. The data type of this property is int. The
default is DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2). If the application runs against a BEA
WebLogic Server application server, set supportsAsynchronousXARollback to
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1).
sysSchema
Specifies the schema of the shadow catalog tables or views that are searched
when an application invokes a DatabaseMetaData method. The sysSchema
property was formerly called cliSchema.
timeFormat
Specifies:
v The format in which the String argument of the
PreparedStatement.setString method against a TIME column must be
specified.
v The format in which the result of the ResultSet.getString or
CallableStatement.getString method against a TIME column is returned.
The data type of timeFormat is int.
Possible values of timeFormat are:
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
279
Constant
Integer

pm
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.EUR
3
hh.mm.ss
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.JIS
4
hh:mm:ss
The default is com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.ISO.
timestampOutputType
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ returns a
java.sql.Timestamp object or a com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp when the
standard JDBC interfaces ResultSet.getTimestamp,
CallableStatement.getTimestamp, ResultSet.getObject, or
CallableStatement.getObject are called to return timestamp information.
Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.JDBC_TIMESTAMP (1)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ returns
java.sql.Timestamp objects from ResultSet.getTimestamp,
CallableStatement.getTimestamp, ResultSet.getObject, or
CallableStatement.getObject calls.
DB2BaseDataSource.JCC_DBTIMESTAMP (2)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ returns
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DBTimestamp objects from ResultSet.getTimestamp,
CallableStatement.getTimestamp, ResultSet.getObject, or
CallableStatement.getObject calls.
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
This is the default behavior.
The behavior is the same as the behavior for
DB2BaseDataSource.JDBC_TIMESTAMP.
useCachedCursor
Specifies whether the underlying cursor for PreparedStatement objects is
cached and reused on subsequent executions of the PreparedStatement. The
data type of useCachedCursor is boolean.
If useCachedCursor is set to true, the cursor for PreparedStatement objects is
cached, which can improve performance. true is the default.
Set useCachedCursor to false if PreparedStatement objects access tables whose
column types or lengths change between executions of those
PreparedStatement objects.
useIdentityValLocalForAutoGeneratedKeys
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses only the
SQL built-in function IDENTITY_VAL_LOCAL to determine automatically
generated key values. The data type of this property is boolean. Possible values
are:
true
280
Specifies that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ always
uses the SQL built-in function IDENTITY_VAL_LOCAL to determine
automatically generated key values. The driver uses
IDENTITY_VAL_LOCAL even if it is possible to use SELECT FROM
INSERT.
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
Specify true if the target data server supports SELECT FROM INSERT,
but the target objects do not. For example, SELECT FROM INSERT is
not valid for a table on which a trigger is defined.
false
Specifies that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
determines whether to use SELECT FROM INSERT or
IDENTITY_VAL_LOCAL to determine automatically generated keys.
false is the default.
useJDBC4ColumnNameAndLabelSemantics
Specifies how the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ handles column
labels in ResultSetMetaData.getColumnName,
ResultSetMetaData.getColumnLabel, and ResultSet.findColumn method calls.
Possible values are:
DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses the following
rules, which conform to the JDBC 4.0 specification, to determine the
value that ResultSetMetaData.getColumnName,
ResultSetMetaData.getColumnLabel, and ResultSet.findColumn return:
v The column name that is returned by
ResultSetMetaData.getColumnName is its name from the database.
v The column label that is returned by
ResultSetMetaData.getColumnLabel is the label that is specified with
the SQL AS clause. If the SQL AS clause is not specified, the label is
the name of the column.
v ResultSet.findColumn takes the label for the column, as specified
with the SQL AS clause, as input. If the SQL AS clause was not
specified, the label is the column name.
v The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not use a
column label that is assigned by the SQL LABEL ON statement.
These rules apply to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
version 3.50 and later, for connections to the following database
systems:
v DB2 for z/OS Version 8 or later
v DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Version 8.1 or later
v DB2 UDB for iSeries® V5R3 or later
For earlier versions of the driver or the database systems, the rules for
a useJDBC4ColumnNameAndLabelSemantics value of
DB2BaseDataSource.NO apply, even if
useJDBC4ColumnNameAndLabelSemantics is set to
DB2BaseDataSource.YES.
DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses the following
rules to determine the values that ResultSetMetaData.getColumnName,
ResultSetMetaData.getColumnLabel, and ResultSet.findColumn return:
If the data source does not support the LABEL ON statement, or the
source column is not defined with the LABEL ON statement:
v The value that is returned by ResultSetMetaData.getColumnName is
its name from the database, if no SQL AS clause is specified. If the
SQL AS clause is specified, the value that is returned is the column
label.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
281
v The value that is returned by ResultSetMetaData.getColumnLabel is
the label that is specified with the SQL AS clause. If the SQL AS
clause is not specified, the value that is returned is the name of the
column.
v ResultSet.findColumn takes the column name as input.
If the source column is defined with the LABEL ON statement:
v The value that is returned by ResultSetMetaData.getColumnName is
the column name from the database, if no SQL AS clause is
specified. If the SQL AS clause is specified, the value that is returned
is the column label that is specified in the AS clause.
v The value that is returned by ResultSetMetaData.getColumnLabel is
the label that is specified in the LABEL ON statement.
v ResultSet.findColumn takes the column name as input.
These rules conform to the behavior of the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ before Version 3.50.
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
This is the default behavior.
For the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 3.50 and
earlier, the default behavior for
useJDBC4ColumnNameAndLabelSemantics is the same as the behavior
for DB2BaseDataSource.NO.
For the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ version 4.0 and
later:
v The default behavior for useJDBC4ColumnNameAndLabelSemantics
is the same as the behavior for DB2BaseDataSource.YES, for
connections to the following database systems:
– DB2 for z/OS Version 8 or later
– DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Version 8.1 or later
– DB2 UDB for iSeries V5R3 or later
v For connections to earlier versions of these database systems, the
default behavior for useJDBC4ColumnNameAndLabelSemantics is
DB2BaseDataSource.NO.
xmlFormat
Specifies the format that is used to retrieve XML data from the data server. The
XML format cannot be modified after a connection is established. Possible
values are:
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.XML_FORMAT_NOT_SET
(-Integer.MAX_VALUE)
Specifies that the default XML format is used. The default is textual
XML format.
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.XML_FORMAT_TEXTUAL (0)
Specifies that the XML textual format is used.
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.XML_FORMAT_BINARY (1)
Specifies that the binary XML format is used.
When binary XML is used, the XML data that is passed to the IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ cannot refer to external entities,
internal entities, or internal DTDs. External DTDs are supported only if
those DTDs were previously registered in the data source.
282
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2ConnectionPoolDataSource.maxStatements
Controls an internal statement cache that is associated with a
PooledConnection. The data type of this property is int. Possible values are:
positive integer
Enables the internal statement cache for a PooledConnection, and
specifies the number of statements that the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ keeps open in the cache.
0 or negative integer
Disables internal statement caching for the PooledConnection. 0 is the
default.
maxStatements controls the internal statement cache that is associated with a
PooledConnection only when the PooledConnection object is created.
maxStatements has no effect on caching in an already existing
PooledConnection object.
maxStatements applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS, and toIBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ type 4 connectivity.

Common IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
properties for DB2 for z/OS and IBM Informix
Some of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ properties apply to IBM
Informix and DB2 for z/OS database servers.
Properties that apply to IBM Informix and DB2 for z/OS are:
enableConnectionConcentrator
Indicates whether the connection concentrator function of the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ is enabled.
The data type of enableConnectionConcentrator is boolean. The default is
false.
enablConnectionConcentrator applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ type 4 connectivity.
The following table shows the interaction between the
enableConnectionConcentrator and enableSysplexWLB property settings:
Table 40. Result of enableConnectionConcentrator and enableSysplexWLB settings

Result
The connection of the application to the
data server is associated to one transport

283
Table 40. Result of enableConnectionConcentrator and enableSysplexWLB settings (continued)
enableConnectionConcentrator
setting
enableSysplexWLB setting
Result
false
true
The connection of the application to the
data server chooses a transport based on
the weights that are returned by the data
server. A transport is chosen at every
transaction boundary. This action
balances the load on different DB2 data
sharing members.
true
false
Several application connections can share
the same transport for executing their
transactions. The switching of the
transport between connections occurs at
each transaction boundary. Because
many connections share one transport to
the data server, fewer resources can be
used on the data server.
true
true
The connection of the application to the
data server chooses a transport based on
the weights that are returned by the data
server. A transport is chosen at every
transaction boundary. This action
balances the load on different DB2 data
sharing members. This is the same
behavior as the behavior when
enableConnectionConcentrator is false
and enableSysplexWLB is true.
keepDynamic
Specifies whether the data source keeps already prepared dynamic SQL
statements in the dynamic statement cache after commit points so that those
prepared statements can be reused. The data type of this property is int. Valid
values are DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1) and DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2).
If the keepDynamic property is not specified, the keepDynamic value is
DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0). If the connection is to a DB2 for z/OS server,
caching of dynamic statements for a connection is not done if the property is
not set. If the connection is to an IBM Informix data source, caching of
dynamic statements for a connection is done if the property is not set.
keepDynamic is used with the DB2Binder -keepdynamic option. The
keepDynamic property value that is specified must match the -keepdynamic
value that was specified when DB2Binder was run.
For a DB2 for z/OS database server, dynamic statement caching can be done
only if the EDM dynamic statement cache is enabled on the data source. The
CACHEDYN subsystem parameter must be set to DB2BaseDataSource.YES to
enable the dynamic statement cache.
maxTransportObjects
Specifies the maximum number of transport objects that can be used for all
connections with the associated DataSource object. The IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ uses transport objects and a global transport objects pool to
support the connection concentrator and Sysplex workload balancing. There is
one transport object for each physical connection to the data source.
The data type of this property is int.
284
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
The maxTransportObjects value is ignored if the enableConnectionConcentrator
or enableSysplexWLB properties are not set to enable the use of the connection
concentrator or Sysplex workload balancing.
If the maxTransportObjects value has not been reached, and a transport object
is not available in the global transport objects pool, the pool creates a new
transport object. If the maxTransportObjects value has been reached, the
application waits for the amount of time that is specified by the
db2.jcc.maxTransportObjectWaitTime configuration property. After that amount
of time has elapsed, if there is still no available transport object in the pool, the
pool throws an SQLException.
maxTransportObjects does not override the db2.jcc.maxTransportObjects
configuration property. maxTransportObjects has no effect on connections from
other DataSource objects. If the maxTransportObjects value is larger than the
db2.jcc.maxTransportObjects value, maxTransportObjects does not increase the
db2.jcc.maxTransportObjects value.
For version 3.63 or 4.13 or later of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ, the default value for maxTransportObjects is 1000. For earlier versions of
the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ, the default value for
maxTransportObjects is -1, which means that the number of transport objects
for the DataSource is limited only by the db2.jcc.maxTransportObjects value for
the driver.

5
Specifies a significant amount of optimization is performed to generate
an access plan. For complex dynamic SQL queries, heuristic rules are
used to limit the amount of time spent selecting an access plan. Where
possible, queries will use materialized query tables instead of the
underlying base tables.
7
Specifies a significant amount of optimization is performed to generate
an access plan. This value is similar to 5 but without the heuristic
rules.
9
Specifies the maximum amount of optimization is performed to
generate an access plan. This can greatly expand the number of
possible access plans that are evaluated. This class should be used to
determine if a better access plan can be generated for very complex
and very long-running queries using large tables. Explain and
performance measurements can be used to verify that a better plan has
been generated.
enableTimeoutForCursors
For DatabaseMetaData or ResultSet methods that use Statement objects in their
implementations, specifies whether the commandTimeout and
queryTimeoutInterruptProcessingMode property values control the timeout
behavior for those Statement objects.
286
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java

Examples of methods that use Statement objects in their implementations are:
v ResultSet.updateRow
v ResultSet.insertRow
v ResultSet.deleteRow
v DatabaseMetaData.getProcedures
|
|
v DatabaseMetaData.getTables
v DatabaseMetaData.getColumns
|
The data type of this property is int. Possible values are:
|
|
|
|
|
|
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1) or
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
A Statement object that is used in the implementation of a
DatabaseMetaData or ResultSet method is controlled by the
commandTimeout and queryTimeoutInterruptProcessingMode
properties. This behavior is the default behavior.
|
|
|
|
|
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
A Statement object that is used in the implementation of a
DatabaseMetaData or ResultSet method is not controlled by the
commandTimeout and queryTimeoutInterruptProcessingMode
properties.
optimizationProfile
Specifies an optimization profile that is used during SQL optimization. The
data type of this property is String. The optimizationProfile value is used to set
the OPTIMIZATION PROFILE special register. The default is null.
optimizationProfile applies to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows servers
only.
optimizationProfileToFlush
Specifies the name of an optimization profile that is to be removed from the
optimization profile cache. The data type of this property is String. The default
is null.
plugin
The name of a client-side JDBC security plug-in. This property has the Object
type and contains a new instance of the JDBC security plug-in method.
pluginName
The name of a server-side security plug-in module.
retryWithAlternativeSecurityMechanism
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ retries a
connection with an alternative security mechanism if the security mechanism
that is specified by property securityMechanism is not supported by the data
source. The data type of this property is int. Possible values are:
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
Retry the connection using an alternative security mechanism. The IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ issues warning code +4222 and
retries the connection with the most secure available security
mechanism.
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2) or
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
Do not retry the connection using an alternative security mechanism.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
287
retryWithAlternativeSecurityMechanism applies to IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity connections to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and
Windows only.
useTransactionRedirect
Specifies whether the DB2 system directs SQL statements to different database
partitions for better performance. The data type of this property is boolean.
The default is false.
This property is applicable only under the following conditions:
v The connection is to a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows server that uses
a partitioned database environment.
v The partitioning key remains constant throughout a transaction.
If useTransactionRedirect is true, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ sends connection requests to the DPF node that contains the target data
of the first directable statement in the transaction. DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and
Windows then directs the SQL statement to different partitions as needed.
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ properties for DB2
for z/OS
Some of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ properties apply only to
DB2 for z/OS servers.
Those properties are:
accountingInterval
Specifies whether DB2 accounting records are produced at commit points or on
termination of the physical connection to the data source. The data type of this
property is String.
If the value of accountingInterval is "COMMIT", and there are no open, held
cursors, DB2 writes an accounting record each time that the application
commits work. If the value of accountingInterval is "COMMIT", and the
application performs a commit operation while a held cursor is open, the
accounting interval spans that commit point and ends at the next valid
accounting interval end point. If the value of accountingInterval is not
"COMMIT", accounting records are produced on termination of the physical
connection to the data source.
The accountingInterval property sets the accounting-interval parameter for an
underlying RRSAF signon call. If the value of subsystem parameter
ACCUMACC is not NO, the ACCUMACC value overrides the
accountingInterval setting.
accountingInterval applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS. accountingInterval is not applicable to
connections under CICS or IMS, or for Java stored procedures.
The accountingInterval property overrides the db2.jcc.accountingInterval
configuration property.
charOutputSize
Specifies the maximum number of bytes to use for INOUT or OUT stored
procedure parameters that are registered as Types.CHAR charOutputSize applies
only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to DB2
for z/OS database servers.
Because DESCRIBE information for stored procedure INOUT and OUT
parameters is not available at run time, by default, the IBM Data Server Driver
288
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
for JDBC and SQLJ sets the maximum length of each character INOUT or OUT
parameter to 32767. For stored procedures with many Types.CHAR parameters,
this maximum setting can result in allocation of much more storage than is
necessary.
To use storage more efficiently, set charOutputSize to the largest expected
length for any Types.CHAR INOUT or OUT parameter.
charOutputSize has no effect on INOUT or OUT parameters that are registered
as Types.VARCHAR or Types.LONGVARCHAR. The driver uses the default length of
32767 for Types.VARCHAR and Types.LONGVARCHAR parameters.
The value that you choose for charOutputSize needs to take into account the
possibility of expansion during character conversion. Because the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ has no information about the server-side
CCSID that is used for output parameter values, the driver requests the stored
procedure output data in UTF-8 Unicode. The charOutputSize value needs to
be the maximum number of bytes that are needed after the parameter value is
converted to UTF-8 Unicode. UTF-8 Unicode characters can require up to three
bytes. (The euro symbol is an example of a three-byte UTF-8 character.) To
ensure that the value of charOutputSize is large enough, if you have no
information about the output data, set charOutputSize to three times the
defined length of the largest CHAR parameter.
clientUser
Specifies the current client user name for the connection. This information is
for client accounting purposes. Unlike the JDBC connection user name, this
value can change during a connection. For a DB2 for z/OS server, the
maximum length is 16 bytes.
This property applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type
2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
clientWorkstation
Specifies the workstation name for the current client for the connection. This
information is for client accounting purposes. This value can change during a
connection. The data type of this property is String. For a DB2 for z/OS server,
the maximum length is 18 bytes. A Java empty string ("") is valid for this
value, but a Java null value is not valid.
This property applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type
2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
currentLocaleLcCtype
Specifies the LC_CTYPE locale that is used to execute SQL statements that use
a built-in function that references a locale. The data type of this property is
String. If currentLocaleLcCtype is set, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ sets the CURRENT LOCALE LC_CTYPE special register on the data
server to the property value. currentLocaleLcCtype has no default.
currentLocaleLcCtype can be set only at the start of a connection, and cannot
be changed while the connection is active.
currentSQLID
Specifies:
v The authorization ID that is used for authorization checking on dynamically
prepared CREATE, GRANT, and REVOKE SQL statements.
v The owner of a table space, database, storage group, or synonym that is
created by a dynamically issued CREATE statement.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
289
v The implicit qualifier of all table, view, alias, and index names specified in
dynamic SQL statements.
currentSQLID sets the value in the CURRENT SQLID special register on a DB2
for z/OS server. If the currentSQLID property is not set, the default schema
name is the value in the CURRENT SQLID special register.
enableMultiRowInsertSupport
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses
multi-row INSERT for batched INSERT or MERGE operations, when the target
data server is a DB2 for z/OS server that supports multi-row INSERT. The
batch operations must be PreparedStatement calls with parameter markers. The
data type of this property is boolean. The default is true.
The enableMultiRowInsertSupport value cannot be changed for the duration of
a connection. enableMultiRowInsertSupport must be set to false if INSERT
FROM SELECT statements are executed in a batch. Otherwise, the driver
throws a BatchUpdateException.
jdbcCollection
Specifies the collection ID for the packages that are used by an instance of the
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ at run time. The data type of
jdbcCollection is String. The default is NULLID.
This property is used with the DB2Binder -collection option. The DB2Binder
utility must have previously bound IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ packages at the server using a -collection value that matches the
jdbcCollection value.
The jdbcCollection setting does not determine the collection that is used for
SQLJ applications. For SQLJ, the collection is determined by the -collection
option of the SQLJ customizer.
jdbcCollection does not apply to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
maxConnCachedParamBufferSize
Specifies the maximum size of an internal buffer that is used for caching input
parameter values for PreparedStatement objects. The buffer caches values on
the native code side that are passed from the driver's Java code side for IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
The buffer is used by all PreparedStatement objects for a Connection. The
default is 1048576 (1MB). The default should be adequate for most users. Set
maxConnCachedParamBufferSize to a larger value if many applications that
run under the driver instance have PreparedStatement objects with large
numbers of input parameters or large input parameters. The
maxConnCachedParamBufferSize value should be larger than the maximum
size of all input parameter data for a Connection. However, you also need to
take into account the total number of connections and the maximum amount of
memory that is available when you set the maxConnCachedParamBufferSize
value.
The buffer exists for the life of a Connection, unless it reaches the maximum
size. If that happens, the buffer is freed on each call to the native code. The
corresponding buffer on the Java code side is freed on
PreparedStatement.clearParameters and PreparedStatement.close calls. The
buffers are not cleared if an application calls
PreparedStatement.clearParameters, and the buffers have not reached the
maximum size.
290
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
maxRowsetSize
Specifies the maximum number of bytes that are used for rowset buffering for
each statement, when the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses
multiple-row FETCH for cursors. The data type of this property is int. The
default is 32767.
maxRowsetSize applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
pkList
Specifies a package list that is used for the underlying RRSAF CREATE
THREAD call when a JDBC or SQLJ connection to a data source is established.
pkList applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
Specify this property if you do not bind plans for your SQLJ programs or for
the JDBC driver. If you specify this property, do not specify planName.
Recommendation: Use pkList instead of planName.
The format of the package list is:
,
collection-ID.*
pkList overrides the value of the db2.jcc.pkList configuration property. If
pkList, planName, and db2.jcc.pkList are not specified, the value of pkList is
NULLID.*.
planName
Specifies a DB2 plan name that is used for the underlying RRSAF CREATE
THREAD call when a JDBC or SQLJ connection to a data source is established.
planName applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
Specify this property if you bind plans for your SQLJ programs and for the
JDBC driver packages. If you specify this property, do not specify pkList.
planName overrides the value of the db2.jcc.planName configuration property.
If pkList, planName, and db2.jcc.planName are not specified, NULLID.* is
used as the package list for the underlying CREATE THREAD call.
reportLongTypes
Specifies whether DatabaseMetaData methods report LONG VARCHAR and
LONG VARGRAPHIC column data types as long data types. The data type of
this property is short. Possible values are:
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2) or
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.NOT_SET (0)
Specifies that DatabaseMetaData methods that return information about
a LONG VARCHAR or LONG VARGRAPHIC column return
java.sql.Types.VARCHAR in the DATA_TYPE column and VARCHAR
or VARGRAPHIC in the TYPE_NAME column of the result set. This is
the default for DB2 for z/OS Version 9 or later.
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
Specifies that DatabaseMetaData methods that return information about
a LONG VARCHAR or LONG VARGRAPHIC column return
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
291
java.sql.Types.LONGVARCHAR in the DATA_TYPE column and
LONG VARCHAR or LONG VARGRAPHIC in the TYPE_NAME
column of the result set.
sendCharInputsUTF8
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ converts
character input data to the CCSID of the DB2 for z/OS database server, or
sends the data in UTF-8 encoding for conversion by the database server.
sendCharInputsUTF8 applies to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 2 connectivity to DB2 for z/OS database servers only. The data type of
this property is int. If this property is also set at the driver level
(db2.jcc.sendCharInputsUTF8), this value overrides the driver-level value.
Possible values are:
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.NO (2)
Specifies that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ converts
character input data to the target encoding before the data is sent to
the DB2 for z/OS database server.
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.NO is the default.
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.YES (1)
Specifies that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ sends
character input data to the DB2 for z/OS database server in UTF-8
encoding. The database server converts the data from UTF-8 encoding
to the target CCSID.
Specify com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.YES only if conversion to
the target CCSID by the SDK for Java causes character conversion
problems. The most common problem occurs when you use IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity to insert a
Unicode line feed character (U+000A) into a table column that has
CCSID 37, and then retrieve that data from a non-z/OS client. If the
SDK for Java does the conversion during insertion of the character into
the column, the line feed character is converted to the EBCDIC new
line character X'15'. However, during retrieval, some SDKs for Java on
operating systems other than z/OS convert the X'15' character to the
Unicode next line character (U+0085) instead of the line feed character
(U+000A). The next line character causes unexpected behavior for some
XML parsers. If you set sendCharInputsUTF8 to
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.YES, the DB2 for z/OS database
server converts the U+000A character to the EBCDIC line feed
character X'25' during insertion into the column, so the character is
always retrieved as a line feed character.
Conversion of data to the target CCSID on the database server might
cause the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ to use more
memory than conversion by the driver. The driver allocates memory
for conversion of character data from the source encoding to the
encoding of the data that it sends to the database server. The amount
of space that the driver allocates for character data that is sent to a
table column is based on the maximum possible length of the data.
UTF-8 data can require up to three bytes for each character. Therefore,
if the driver sends UTF-8 data to the database server, the driver needs
to allocate three times the maximum number of characters in the input
data. If the driver does the conversion, and the target CCSID is a
single-byte CCSID, the driver needs to allocate only the maximum
number of characters in the input data.
292
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
sessionTimeZone
Specifies the setting for the CURRENT SESSION TIME ZONE special register.
The data type of this property is String.
The sessionTimeZone value is a time zone value that is in the format of sth:tm.
s is the sign, th is the time zone hour, and tm is time zone minutes. The range
of valid values is -12:59 to +14:00.
sqljEnableClassLoaderSpecificProfiles
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ allows using
and loading of SQLJ profiles with the same Java name in multiple J2EE
application (.ear) files. The data type of this property is boolean. The default is
false. sqljEnableClassLoaderSpecificProfiles is a DataSource property. This
property is primarily intended for use with WebSphere Application Server.
ssid
Specifies the name of the local DB2 for z/OS subsystem to which a connection
is established using IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity on DB2 for z/OS. The data type of this property is String.
The ssid property overrides the db2.jcc.ssid configuration property.
ssid can be the subsystem name for a local subsystem or a group attachment
name or subgroup attachment name.
Specification of a single local subsystem name allows more than one subsystem
on a single LPAR to be accessed as a local subsystem for connections that use
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity.
Specification of a group attachment name or subgroup attachment name allows
failover processing to occur if a data sharing group member fails. If the DB2
subsystem to which an application is connected fails, the connection
terminates. However, when new connections use that group attachment name
or subgroup attachment name, DB2 for z/OS uses group or subgroup
attachment processing to find an active DB2 subsystem to which to connect.
ssid applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity to DB2 for z/OS.
useRowsetCursor
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ always uses
multiple-row FETCH for scrollable cursors if the data source supports
multiple-row FETCH. The data type of this property is boolean.
This property applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type
4 connectivity, or to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity to DB2 for z/OS. If the enableRowsetSupport property is not set,
the default for useRowsetCursor is true. If the enableRowsetSupport property
is set, the useRowsetCursor property is not used.
Applications that use the JDBC 1 technique for performing positioned update
or delete operations should set useRowSetCursor to false. Those applications
do not operate properly if the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses
multiple-row FETCH.

Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
297
in addition to summary statistics. The global transport pool is used for the
connection concentrator and Sysplex workload balancing.
The data type of dumpPool is int. dumpPoolStatisticsOnSchedule and
dumpPoolStatisticsOnScheduleFile must also be set for writing statistics before
any statistics are written.
You can specify one or more of the following types of statistics with the
db2.jcc.dumpPool property:
v DUMP_REMOVE_OBJECT (hexadecimal: X'01', decimal: 1)

v DUMP_POOL_ERROR (hexadecimal: X'80', decimal: 128)
To trace more than one type of event, add the values for the types of events
that you want to trace. For example, suppose that you want to trace
DUMP_GET_OBJECT and DUMP_CREATE_OBJECT events. The numeric
equivalents of these values are 2 and 16, so you specify 18 for the dumpPool
value.
The default is 0, which means that only summary statistics for the global
transport pool are written.
This property does not have a setXXX or a getXXX method.
dumpPoolStatisticsOnSchedule
Specifies how often, in seconds, global transport pool statistics are written to
the file that is specified by dumpPoolStatisticsOnScheduleFile. The global
transport object pool is used for the connection concentrator and Sysplex
workload balancing.
The default is -1. -1 means that global transport pool statistics are not written.
This property does not have a setXXX or a getXXX method.
dumpPoolStatisticsOnScheduleFile
Specifies the name of the file to which global transport pool statistics are
written. The global transport pool is used for the connection concentrator and
Sysplex workload balancing.
If dumpPoolStatisticsOnScheduleFile is not specified, global transport pool
statistics are not written.
This property does not have a setXXX or a getXXX method.
maxTransportObjectIdleTime
Specifies the amount of time in seconds that an unused transport object stays
in a global transport object pool before it can be deleted from the pool.
Transport objects are used for the connection concentrator and Sysplex
workload balancing.
The default value for maxTransportObjectIdleTime is 10. Setting
maxTransportObjectIdleTime to a value less than 0 causes unused transport
objects to be deleted from the pool immediately. Doing this is not
recommended because it can cause severe performance degradation.
This property does not have a setXXX or a getXXX method.
maxTransportObjectWaitTime
Specifies the maximum amount of time in seconds that an application waits for
298
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
a transport object if the maxTransportObjects value has been reached. Transport
objects are used for the connection concentrator and Sysplex workload
balancing. When an application waits for longer than the
maxTransportObjectWaitTime value, the global transport object pool throws an
SQLException.
The default value for maxTransportObjectWaitTime is 1. Any negative value
means that applications wait forever.
This property does not have a setXXX or a getXXX method.
minTransportObjects
Specifies the lower limit for the number of transport objects in a global
transport object pool for the connection concentrator and Sysplex workload
balancing. When a JVM is created, there are no transport objects in the pool.
Transport objects are added to the pool as they are needed. After the
minTransportObjects value is reached, the number of transport objects in the
global transport object pool never goes below the minTransportObjects value
for the lifetime of that JVM.
The default value for minTransportObjects is 0. Any value that is less than or
equal to 0 means that the global transport object pool can become empty.
This property does not have a setXXX or a getXXX method.

Table 41. Summary of Configuration properties and corresponding Connection and DataSource properties (continued)
Configuration property name
Connection or DataSource property
name
Introduced in
driver version
Notes
Note:
1. The Connection or DataSource property setting overrides the configuration property setting. The configuration property provides
a default value for the Connection or DataSource property.
2. The configuration property setting overrides the Connection or DataSource property.
3. The corresponding Connection or DataSource property is defined only for IBM Informix.
4. The configuration property applies to DB2 for z/OS.
5. The configuration property applies to IBM Informix.
6. The configuration property applies to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows.
The meanings of the configuration properties are:
db2.jcc.accountingInterval
Specifies whether DB2 accounting records are produced at commit points or on
termination of the physical connection to the data source. If the value of
db2.jcc.accountingInterval is COMMIT, DB2 accounting records are produced at
commit points. For example:
db2.jcc.accountingInterval=COMMIT
Otherwise, accounting records are produced on termination of the physical
connection to the data source.
db2.jcc.accountingInterval applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS. db2.jcc.accountingInterval is
not applicable to connections under CICS or IMS, or for Java stored
procedures.
You can override db2.jcc.accountingInterval by setting the accountingInterval
property for a Connection or DataSource object.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.allowSqljDuplicateStaticQueries
Specifies whether multiple open iterators on a single SELECT statement in an
SQLJ application are allowed under IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ type 2 connectivity.
To enable this support, set db2.jcc.allowSqljDuplicateStaticQueries to YES or
true.
db2.jcc.charOutputSize
Specifies the maximum number of bytes to use for INOUT or OUT stored
procedure parameters that are registered as Types.CHAR.
Because DESCRIBE information for stored procedure INOUT and OUT
parameters is not available at run time, by default, the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ sets the maximum length of each character INOUT or OUT
parameter to 32767. For stored procedures with many Types.CHAR parameters,
this maximum setting can result in allocation of much more storage than is
necessary.
To use storage more efficiently, set db2.jcc.charOutputSize to the largest
expected length for any Types.CHAR INOUT or OUT parameter.
db2.jcc.charOutputSize has no effect on INOUT or OUT parameters that are
registered as Types.VARCHAR or Types.LONGVARCHAR. The driver uses the default
length of 32767 for Types.VARCHAR and Types.LONGVARCHAR parameters.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
301
The value that you choose for db2.jcc.charOutputSize needs to take into
account the possibility of expansion during character conversion. Because the
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ has no information about the
server-side CCSID that is used for output parameter values, the driver requests
the stored procedure output data in UTF-8 Unicode. The
db2.jcc.charOutputSize value needs to be the maximum number of bytes that
are needed after the parameter value is converted to UTF-8 Unicode. UTF-8
Unicode characters can require up to three bytes. (The euro symbol is an
example of a three-byte UTF-8 character.) To ensure that the value of
db2.jcc.charOutputSize is large enough, if you have no information about the
output data, set db2.jcc.charOutputSize to three times the defined length of the
largest CHAR parameter.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.currentSchema or db2.jcc.override.currentSchema
Specifies the default schema name that is used to qualify unqualified database
objects in dynamically prepared SQL statements. This value of this property
sets the value in the CURRENT SCHEMA special register on the database
server. The schema name is case-sensitive, and must be specified in uppercase
characters.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS or DB2 for Linux,
UNIX, and Windows.
db2.jcc.currentSQLID or db2.jcc.override.currentSQLID
Specifies:
v The authorization ID that is used for authorization checking on dynamically
prepared CREATE, GRANT, and REVOKE SQL statements.
v The owner of a table space, database, storage group, or synonym that is
created by a dynamically issued CREATE statement.
v The implicit qualifier of all table, view, alias, and index names specified in
dynamic SQL statements.
currentSQLID sets the value in the CURRENT SQLID special register on a DB2
for z/OS server. If the currentSQLID property is not set, the default schema
name is the value in the CURRENT SQLID special register.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.decimalRoundingMode or db2.jcc.override.decimalRoundingMode
Specifies the rounding mode for assignment to decimal floating-point variables
or DECFLOAT columns on DB2 for z/OS or DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and
Windows data servers.
Possible values are:
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.ROUND_DOWN (1)
Rounds the value towards 0 (truncation). The discarded digits are
ignored.
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.ROUND_CEILING (2)
Rounds the value towards positive infinity. If all of the discarded digits
are zero or if the sign is negative the result is unchanged other than
the removal of the discarded digits. Otherwise, the result coefficient is
incremented by 1.
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.ROUND_HALF_EVEN (3)
Rounds the value to the nearest value; if the values are equidistant,
rounds the value so that the final digit is even. If the discarded digits
302
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
represents greater than half (0.5) of the value of one in the next left
position then the result coefficient is incremented by 1. If they
represent less than half, then the result coefficient is not adjusted (that
is, the discarded digits are ignored). Otherwise the result coefficient is
unaltered if its rightmost digit is even, or is incremented by 1 if its
rightmost digit is odd (to make an even digit).
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.ROUND_HALF_UP (4)
Rounds the value to the nearest value; if the values are equidistant,
rounds the value away from zero. If the discarded digits represent
greater than or equal to half (0.5) of the value of one in the next left
position then the result coefficient is incremented by 1. Otherwise the
discarded digits are ignored.
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.ROUND_FLOOR (6)
Rounds the value towards negative infinity. If all of the discarded
digits are zero or if the sign is positive the result is unchanged other
than the removal of discarded digits. Otherwise, the sign is negative
and the result coefficient is incremented by 1.
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2BaseDataSource.ROUND_UNSET (-2147483647)
No rounding mode was explicitly set. The IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ does not use the decimalRoundingMode to set the
rounding mode on the database server. The rounding mode is
ROUND_HALF_EVEN.
If you explicitly set the db2.jcc.decimalRoundingMode or
db2.jcc.override.decimalRoundingMode value, that value updates the
CURRENT DECFLOAT ROUNDING MODE special register value on a DB2
for z/OS data server.
If you explicitly set the db2.jcc.decimalRoundingMode or
db2.jcc.override.decimalRoundingMode value, that value does not update the
CURRENT DECFLOAT ROUNDING MODE special register value on a DB2
for Linux, UNIX, and Windows data server. If the value to which you set
db2.jcc.decimalRoundingMode or db2.jcc.override.decimalRoundingMode is
not the same as the value of the CURRENT DECFLOAT ROUNDING MODE
special register, an Exception is thrown. To change the data server value, you
need to set that value with the decflt_rounding database configuration
parameter.
decimalRoundingMode does not affect decimal value assignments. The IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ always rounds decimal values down.
db2.jcc.defaultSQLState
Specifies the SQLSTATE value that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ returns to the client for SQLException or SQLWarning objects that have null
SQLSTATE values. This configuration property can be specified in the
following ways:
db2.jcc.defaultSQLState
If db2.jcc.defaultSQLState is specified with no value, the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ returns 'FFFFF'.
db2.jcc.defaultSQLState=xxxxx
xxxxx is the value that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
returns when the SQLSTATE value is null. If xxxxx is longer than five
bytes, the driver truncates the value to five bytes. If xxxxx is shorter
than five bytes, the driver pads xxxxx on the right with blanks.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
303
If db2.jcc.defaultSQLState is not specified, the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ returns a null SQLSTATE value.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.disableSQLJProfileCaching
Specifies whether serialized profiles are cached when the JVM under which
their application is running is reset. db2.jcc.disableSQLJProfileCaching applies
only to applications that run in a resettable JVM (applications that run in the
CICS, IMS, or Java stored procedure environment), and use IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS. Possible
values are:
YES
SQLJ serialized profiles are not cached every time the JVM is reset, so
that new versions of the serialized profiles are loaded when the JVM is
reset. Use this option when an application is under development, and
new versions of the application and its serialized profiles are produced
frequently.
NO
SQLJ serialized profiles are cached when the JVM is reset. NO is the
default.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.dumpPool
Specifies the types of statistics on global transport pool events that are written,
in addition to summary statistics. The global transport pool is used for the
connection concentrator and Sysplex workload balancing.
db2.jcc.dumpPoolStatisticsOnSchedule and
db2.jcc.dumpPoolStatisticsOnScheduleFile must also be set for writing statistics
before any statistics are written.
You can specify one or more of the following types of statistics with the
db2.jcc.dumpPool property:
v DUMP_REMOVE_OBJECT (hexadecimal: X'01', decimal: 1)
v DUMP_GET_OBJECT (hexadecimal: X'02', decimal: 2)
v DUMP_WAIT_OBJECT (hexadecimal: X'04', decimal: 4)
v DUMP_SET_AVAILABLE_OBJECT (hexadecimal: X'08', decimal: 8)
v DUMP_CREATE_OBJECT (hexadecimal: X'10', decimal: 16)
v DUMP_SYSPLEX_MSG (hexadecimal: X'20', decimal: 32)
v DUMP_POOL_ERROR (hexadecimal: X'80', decimal: 128)
To trace more than one type of event, add the values for the types of events
that you want to trace. For example, suppose that you want to trace
DUMP_GET_OBJECT and DUMP_CREATE_OBJECT events. The numeric
equivalents of these values are 2 and 16, so you specify 18 for the
db2.jcc.dumpPool value.
The default is 0, which means that only summary statistics for the global
transport pool are written.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS or IBM Informix.
db2.jcc.dumpPoolStatisticsOnSchedule
Specifies how often, in seconds, global transport pool statistics are written to
the file that is specified by db2.jcc.dumpPoolStatisticsOnScheduleFile. The
global transport object pool is used for the connection concentrator and
Sysplex workload balancing.
The default is -1. -1 means that global transport pool statistics are not written.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS or IBM Informix.
304
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
db2.jcc.dumpPoolStatisticsOnScheduleFile
Specifies the name of the file to which global transport pool statistics are
written. The global transport pool is used for the connection concentrator and
Sysplex workload balancing.
If db2.jcc.dumpPoolStatisticsOnScheduleFile is not specified, global transport
pool statistics are not written.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS or IBM Informix.
db2.jcc.enableInetAddressGetHostName
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses the
InetAddress.getHostName and InetAddress.getCanonicalHostName methods to
determine the host name for an IP address.
db2.jcc.enableInetAddressGetHostName applies only to IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity. Possible values are:
true
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses the
InetAddress.getHostName and InetAddress.getCanonicalHostName
methods to determine the host name for an IP address.
When you specify true, applications might take longer to run because
of the additional time that is required for DNS lookup operations.
false
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses the
InetAddress.getHostAddress method to determine the host name for
an IP address.
For versions 3.65 and 4.15 or later of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ, the default is false. For versions 3.64 and 4.14 or earlier, the default is
true.
db2.jcc.override.enableMultiRowInsertSupport
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses
multi-row INSERT for batched INSERT or MERGE operations, when the target
data server is a DB2 for z/OS server that supports multi-row INSERT. The
batch operations must be PreparedStatement calls with parameter markers. The
default is true.
db2.jcc.override.enableMultiRowInsertSupport must be set to false if INSERT
FROM SELECT statements are executed in a batch. Otherwise, the driver
throws a BatchUpdateException.
Possible values are:
true
Specifies that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses
multi-row INSERT for batched INSERT or MERGE operations, when
the target data server is a DB2 for z/OS server that supports multi-row
INSERT. This is the default.
false
Specifies that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not
use multi-row INSERT for batched INSERT or MERGE operations,
when the target data server is a DB2 for z/OS server that supports
multi-row INSERT.
db2.jcc.encryptionAlgorithm or db2.jcc.override.encryptionAlgorithm
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses 56-bit
DES (weak) encryption or 256-bit AES (strong) encryption.
db2.jcc.encryptionAlgorithm or db2.jcc.override.encryptionAlgorithm can be
specified only if db2.jcc.securityMechanism or db2.jcc.securityMechanism is set
to 7 or 9.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
305
Possible values are:
1
The driver uses 56-bit DES encryption.
2
The driver uses 256-bit AES encryption, if the database server supports
it. 256-bit AES encryption is available for IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity only.
For AES encryption, you need an unrestricted policy file for JCE. That
file is available at the following location:
https://www.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/preLogin.do?source=jcesdk
db2.jcc.encryptionAlgorithm can be specified only if the
db2.jcc.securityMechanism, db2.jcc.override.securityMechanism, or
securityMechanisim value is set for encrypted password security or encrypted
user ID and password security.
db2.jcc.jmxEnabled
Specifies whether the Java Management Extensions (JMX) is enabled for the
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ instance. JMX must be enabled
before applications can use the remote trace controller.
Possible values are:
true or yes
Indicates that JMX is enabled.
Any other value
Indicates that JMX is disabled. This is the default.
db2.jcc.lobOutputSize
Specifies the number of bytes of storage that the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ needs to allocate for output LOB values when the driver
cannot determine the size of those LOBs. This situation occurs for LOB stored
procedure output parameters. db2.jcc.lobOutputSize applies only to IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
The default value for db2.jcc.lobOutputSize is 1048576. For systems with
storage limitations and smaller LOBs, set the db2.jcc.lobOutputSize value to a
lower number.
For example, if you know that the output LOB size is at most 64000, set
db2.jcc.lobOutputSize to 64000.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.maxConnCachedParamBufferSize
Specifies the maximum size of an internal buffer that is used for caching input
parameter values for PreparedStatement objects. The buffer caches values on
the native code side that are passed from the driver's Java code side for IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
The buffer is used by all PreparedStatement objects for a Connection. The
default is 1048576 (1MB). The default should be adequate for most users. Set
db2.jcc.maxConnCachedParamBufferSize to a larger value if many applications
that run under the driver instance have PreparedStatement objects with large
numbers of input parameters or large input parameters. The
db2.jcc.maxConnCachedParamBufferSize should be larger than the maximum
size of all input parameter data for a Connection. However, you also need to
take into account the total number of connections and the maximum amount of
memory that is available when you set the
db2.jcc.maxConnCachedParamBufferSize value.
306
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
The buffer exists for the life of a Connection, unless it reaches the maximum
specified size. If that happens, the buffer is freed on each call to the native
code. The corresponding buffer on the Java code side is freed on
PreparedStatement.clearParameters and PreparedStatement.close calls. The
buffers are not cleared if an application calls
PreparedStatement.clearParameters, and the buffers have not reached the
maximum size.
db2.jcc.maxRefreshInterval
For workload balancing, specifies the maximum amount of time in seconds
between refreshes of the client copy of the server list. The minimum valid
value is 1.
For version 3.63 or 4.13 or later of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ, the default is 10 seconds. For earlier versions of the driver, the default is
30 seconds.
db2.jcc.maxTransportObjectIdleTime
Specifies the amount of time in seconds that an unused transport object stays
in a global transport object pool before it can be deleted from the pool.
Transport objects are used for the connection concentrator and Sysplex
workload balancing.
The default value for db2.jcc.maxTransportObjectIdleTime is 10. Setting
db2.jcc.maxTransportObjectIdleTime to a value less than 0 causes unused
transport objects to be deleted from the pool immediately. Doing this is not
recommended because it can cause severe performance degradation.
db2.jcc.maxTransportObjects
Specifies the upper limit for the number of transport objects in a global
transport object pool for the connection concentrator and Sysplex workload
balancing. When the number of transport objects in the pool reaches the
db2.jcc.maxTransportObjects value, transport objects that have not been used
for longer than the db2.jcc.maxTransportObjectIdleTime value are deleted from
the pool.
For version 3.63 or 4.13 or later of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ, the default is 1000. For earlier versions of the driver, the default is -1.
Any value that is less than or equal to 0 means that there is no limit to the
number of transport objects in the global transport object pool.
db2.jcc.maxTransportObjectWaitTime
Specifies the maximum amount of time in seconds that an application waits for
a transport object if the db2.jcc.maxTransportObjects value has been reached.
Transport objects are used for the connection concentrator and Sysplex
workload balancing. When an application waits for longer than the
db2.jcc.maxTransportObjectWaitTime value, the global transport object pool
throws an SQLException.
Any negative value means that applications wait forever.
For version 3.63 or 4.13 or later of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ, the default is 1 second. For earlier versions of the driver, the default is
-1.
db2.jcc.minTransportObjects
Specifies the lower limit for the number of transport objects in a global
transport object pool for the connection concentrator and Sysplex workload
balancing. When a JVM is created, there are no transport objects in the pool.
Transport objects are added to the pool as they are needed. After the
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
307
db2.jcc.minTransportObjects value is reached, the number of transport objects
in the global transport object pool never goes below the
db2.jcc.minTransportObjects value for the lifetime of that JVM.
The default value for db2.jcc.minTransportObjects is 0. Any value that is less
than or equal to 0 means that the global transport object pool can become
empty.
db2.jcc.outputDirectory
Specifies where the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ stores
temporary log or cache files.
If this property is set, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ stores
the following files in the specified directory:
jccServerListCache.bin
Contains a copy of the primary and alternate server information for
automatic client reroute in a DB2 pureScale environment.
This file applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows.
If db2.jcc.outputDirectory is not specified, the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ searches for a directory that is specified by the
java.io.tmpdir system property. If the java.io.tmpdir system property is
also not specified, the driver uses only the in-memory cache for the
primary and alternate server information. If a directory is specified, but
jccServerListCache.bin cannot be accessed, the driver uses only the
in-memory cache for the server list.
jccdiag.log
Contains diagnostic information that is written by the IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ.
If db2.jcc.outputDirectory is not specified, the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ searches for a directory that is specified by the
java.io.tmpdir system property. If the java.io.tmpdir system property is
also not specified, the driver does not write diagnostic information to
jccdiag.log. If a directory is specified, but jccdiag.log cannot be
accessed, the driver does not write diagnostic information to
jccdiag.log.
connlicj.bin
Contains information about IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ license verification, for direct connections to DB2 for z/OS. The
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ writes this file when server
license verification is performed successfully for a data server. When a
copy of the license verification information is stored at the client,
performance of license verification on subsequent connections can be
improved.
If db2.jcc.outputDirectory is not specified, the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ searches for a directory that is specified by the
java.io.tmpdir system property. If the java.io.tmpdir system property is
also not specified, the driver does not store a copy of server license
verification information at the client. If a directory is specified, but
connlicj.bin cannot be accessed, the driver does not store a copy of
server license verification information at the client.
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not create the directory.
You must create the directory and assign the required file permissions.
308
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
db2.jcc.outputDirectory can specify an absolute path or a relative path.
However, an absolute path is recommended.
db2.jcc.pkList
Specifies a package list that is used for the underlying RRSAF CREATE
THREAD call when a JDBC or SQLJ connection to a data source is established.
Specify this property if you do not bind plans for your SQLJ programs or for
the JDBC driver. If you specify this property, do not specify db2.jcc.planName.
db2.jcc.pkList applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type
2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS. db2.jcc.pkList does not apply to applications
that run under CICS or IMS, or to Java stored procedures. The JDBC driver
ignores the db2.jcc.pkList setting in those cases.
Recommendation: Use db2.jcc.pkList instead of db2.jcc.planName.
The format of the package list is:
,
collection-ID.*
The default value of db2.jcc.pkList is NULLID.*.
If you specify the -collection parameter when you run
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Binder, the collection ID that you specify for IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ packages when you run
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Binder must also be in the package list for the
db2.jcc.pkList property.
You can override db2.jcc.pkList by setting the pkList property for a Connection
or DataSource object.
The following example specifies a package list for a IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ instance whose packages are in collection JDBCCID. SQLJ
applications that are prepared under this driver instance are bound into
collections SQLJCID1, SQLJCID2, or SQLJCID3.
db2.jcc.pkList=JDBCCID.*,SQLJCID1.*,SQLJCID2.*,SQLJCID3.*
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.planName
Specifies a DB2 for z/OS plan name that is used for the underlying RRSAF
CREATE THREAD call when a JDBC or SQLJ connection to a data source is
established. Specify this property if you bind plans for your SQLJ programs
and for the JDBC driver packages. If you specify this property, do not specify
db2.jcc.pkList.
db2.jcc.planName applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS. db2.jcc.planName does not apply to
applications that run under CICS or IMS, or to Java stored procedures. The
JDBC driver ignores the db2.jcc.planName setting in those cases.
If you do not specify this property or the db2.jcc.pkList property, the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses the db2.jcc.pkList default value of
NULLID.*.
If you specify db2.jcc.planName, you need to bind the packages that you
produce when you run com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Binder into a plan whose name is
the value of this property. You also need to bind all SQLJ packages into a plan
whose name is the value of this property.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
309
You can override db2.jcc.planName by setting the planName property for a
Connection or DataSource object.
The following example specifies a plan name of MYPLAN for the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ JDBC packages and SQLJ packages.
db2.jcc.planName=MYPLAN
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.progressiveStreaming or db2.jcc.override.progressiveStreaming
Specifies whether the JDBC driver uses progressive streaming when
progressive streaming is supported on the data source.
With progressive streaming, also known as dynamic data format, the data
source dynamically determines the most efficient mode in which to return LOB
or XML data, based on the size of the LOBs or XML objects.
Valid values are:
1
Use progressive streaming, if the data source supports it.
2
Do not use progressive streaming.
db2.jcc.rollbackOnShutdown
Specifies whether DB2 for z/OS forces a rollback operation and disables
further operations on JDBC connections that are in a unit of work during
processing of JVM shutdown hooks.
db2.jcc.rollbackOnShutdown applies to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ type 2 connectivity only.
db2.jcc.rollbackOnShutdown does not apply to the CICS, IMS, stored
procedure, or WebSphere Application Server environments.
Possible values are:
yes or true
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ directs DB2 for z/OS
to force a rollback operation and disables further operations on JDBC
connections that are in a unit of work during processing of JVM
shutdown hooks.
Any other value
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ takes no action with
respect to rollback processing during processing of JVM shutdown
hooks. This is the default.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.securityMechanism or db2.jcc.override.securityMechanism
Specifies the DRDA security mechanism. Possible values are:
310
3
User ID and password
4
User ID only
7
User ID, encrypted password
9
Encrypted user ID and password
11
Kerberos. This value does not apply to connections to IBM Informix.
12
Encrypted user ID and encrypted security-sensitive data. This value
applies to connections to DB2 for z/OS only.
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
13
Encrypted user ID and password, and encrypted security-sensitive
data. This value does not apply to connections to IBM Informix.
15
Plug-in security. This value applies to connections to DB2 for Linux,
UNIX, and Windows only.
16
Encrypted user ID. This value does not apply to connections to IBM
Informix.
18
Client certificate security, using SSL. This value applies to connections
to DB2 for z/OS Version 10 and later only.
The security mechanism that is specified by this property is the only
mechanism that is used. If the security mechanism is not supported by the
connection, an exception is thrown.
The default value for db2.jcc.securityMechanism is 3. If the server does not
support user ID and password security, but supports encrypted user ID and
password security (9), the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ driver
upgrades the security mechanism to encrypted user ID and password security
and attempts to connect to the server. Any other mismatch in security
mechanism support between the requester and the server results in an error.
This property does not apply to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.sendCharInputsUTF8
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ converts
character input data to the CCSID of the DB2 for z/OS database server, or
sends the data in UTF-8 encoding for conversion by the database server.
db2.jcc.sendCharInputsUTF8 applies to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ type 2 connectivity to DB2 for z/OS database servers only. If this
property is also set at the connection level, the connection-level setting
overrides this value.
Possible values are:
no, false, or 2
Specifies that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ converts
character input data to the target encoding before the data is sent to
the DB2 for z/OS database server. This is the default.
yes, true, or 1
Specifies that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ sends
character input data to the DB2 for z/OS database server in UTF-8
encoding. The data source converts the data from UTF-8 encoding to
the target CCSID.
Specify yes, true, or 1 only if conversion to the target CCSID by the
SDK for Java causes character conversion problems. The most common
problem occurs when you use IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ type 2 connectivity to insert a Unicode line feed character
(U+000A) into a table column that has CCSID 37, and then retrieve that
data from a non-z/OS client. If the SDK for Java does the conversion
during insertion of the character into the column, the line feed
character is converted to the EBCDIC new line character X'15'.
However, during retrieval, some SDKs for Java on operating systems
other than z/OS convert the X'15' character to the Unicode next line
character (U+0085) instead of the line feed character (U+000A). The
next line character causes unexpected behavior for some XML parsers.
If you set db2.jcc.sendCharInputsUTF8 to yes, the DB2 for z/OS
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
311
database server converts the U+000A character to the EBCDIC line feed
character X'25' during insertion into the column, so the character is
always retrieved as a line feed character.
Conversion of data to the target CCSID on the data source might cause
the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ to use more memory
than conversion by the driver. The driver allocates memory for
conversion of character data from the source encoding to the encoding
of the data that it sends to the data source. The amount of space that
the driver allocates for character data that is sent to a table column is
based on the maximum possible length of the data. UTF-8 data can
require up to three bytes for each character. Therefore, if the driver
sends UTF-8 data to the data source, the driver needs to allocate three
times the maximum number of characters in the input data. If the
driver does the conversion, and the target CCSID is a single-byte
CCSID, the driver needs to allocate only the maximum number of
characters in the input data.
For example, any of the following settings for db2.jcc.sendCharInputsUTF8
causes the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ to convert input
character strings to UTF-8, rather than the target encoding, before sending the
data to the data source:
db2.jcc.sendCharInputsUTF8=yes
db2.jcc.sendCharInputsUTF8=true
db2.jcc.sendCharInputsUTF8=1
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
|
|
|
|
|
db2.jcc.sqljStmtCacheSize
Specifies the maximum number of statements that are in the SQLJ statement
cache for each DefaultContext instance and each JVM thread. This value
applies to SQLJ stored procedures that run in a 64-bit, multi-threaded
environment. The default is 10 statements.
|
|
|
|
|
|
In a multi-threaded environment, the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and
SQLJ caches statements that are associated with each instance of a
DefaultContext object that is used by each JVM thread. When the driver
attempts to cache a statement after the db2.jcc.sqljStmtCacheSize value is
reached, the least recently used cached statement is purged and replaced by
the new statement.
|
|
This property applies only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type
2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS Version 11 or later.
db2.jcc.sqljToolsExitJVMOnCompletion
Specifies whether the Java programs that underlie SQLJ tools such as
db2sqljcustomize and db2sqljbind issue the System.exit call on return to the
calling programs.
Possible values are:
true
Specifies that the Java programs that underlie SQLJ tools issue the
System.exit call upon completion. true is the default.
false
Specifies that the Java programs that underlie SQLJ tools do not issue
the System.exit call.
db2.jcc.sqljUncustomizedWarningOrException
Specifies the action that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ takes
when an uncustomized SQLJ application runs.
db2.jcc.sqljUncustomizedWarningOrException can have the following values:
312
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
0
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does not throw a
Warning or Exception when an uncustomized SQLJ application is run.
This is the default.
1
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ throws a Warning
when an uncustomized SQLJ application is run.
2
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ throws an Exception
when an uncustomized SQLJ application is run.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS or DB2 for Linux,
UNIX, and Windows.
db2.jcc.ssid
Specifies the DB2 for z/OS subsystem to which applications make connections
with IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2
for z/OS.
The db2.jcc.ssid value can be the name of the local DB2 subsystem or a group
attachment name or subgroup attachment name.
For example:
db2.jcc.ssid=DB2A
The ssid Connection and DataSource property overrides db2.jcc.ssid.
If you specify a group attachment name or subgroup attachment name, and the
DB2 subsystem to which an application is connected fails, the connection
terminates. However, when new connections use that group attachment name
or subgroup attachment name, DB2 for z/OS uses group attachment or
subgroup attachment processing to find an active DB2 subsystem to which to
connect.
If you do not specify the db2.jcc.ssid property, the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ uses the SSID value from the application defaults load module.
When you install DB2 for z/OS, an application defaults load module is created
in the prefix.SDSNEXIT data set and the prefix.SDSNLOAD data set. Other
application defaults load modules might be created in other data sets for
selected applications.
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ must load an application
defaults load module before it can read the SSID value. z/OS searches data
sets in the following places, and in the following order, for the application
defaults load module:
1. Job pack area (JPA)
2. TASKLIB
3. STEPLIB or JOBLIB
4. LPA
5. Libraries in the link list
You need to ensure that if your system has more than one copy of the
application defaults load module, z/OS finds the data set that contains the
correct copy for the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ first.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
|
|
|
|
|
|
db2.jcc.sslConnection or db2.jcc.override.sslConnection
Specifies whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses an SSL
socket to connect to the data source. If the value is true, the connection uses
an SSL socket. If the value is false, the connection uses a plain socket.
The db2.jcc.override.sslConnection property overrides the sslConnection
property for a Connection or DataSource object.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
313
|
If no property is specified, the default value is false.
|
|
This property is applicable only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity.
|
|
|
db2.jcc.sslTrustStoreLocation or db2.jcc.override.sslTrustStoreLocation
Specifies the name of the Java truststore on the client that contains the server
certificate for an SSL connection.
|
|
|
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses this option only if the
db2.jcc.sslConnection, db2.jcc.override.sslConnection, or sslConnection property
is set to true.
|
|
|
|
|
|
If db2.jcc.sslTrustStoreLocation or db2.jcc.override.sslTrustStoreLocation, or
sslTrustStoreLocation is set, and db2.jcc.sslConnection,
db2.jcc.override.sslConnection, or sslConnection is set to true, the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses the db2.jcc.sslTrustStoreLocation,
db2.jcc.override.sslTrustStoreLocation, or sslTrustStoreLocation value instead of
the value in the javax.net.ssl.trustStore Java property.
|
|
The db2.jcc.override.sslTrustStoreLocation property overrides the
sslTrustStoreLocation property for a Connection or DataSource object.
|
If no property is specified, the default value is null.
|
|
This property is applicable only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity.
|
|
|
db2.jcc.sslTrustStorePassword or db2.jcc.override.sslTrustStorePassword
Specifies the password for the Java truststore on the client that contains the
server certificate for an SSL connection.
|
|
|
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses this option only if the
db2.jcc.sslConnection, db2.jcc.override.sslConnection, or sslConnection property
is set to true.
|
|
|
|
|
|
If db2.jcc.sslTrustStorePassword, db2.jcc.override.sslTrustStorePassword, or
sslTrustStorePassword is set, and db2.jcc.sslConnection,
db2.jcc.override.sslConnection, or sslConnection is set to true, the IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses the db2.jcc.sslTrustStorePassword,
db2.jcc.override.sslTrustStorePassword, or sslTrustStorePassword value instead
of the value in the javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword Java property.
|
|
The db2.jcc.override.sslTrustStorePassword property overrides the
sslTrustStorePassword property for a Connection or DataSource object.
|
If no property is specified, the default value is null.
|
|
This property is applicable only to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 4 connectivity.
db2.jcc.traceDirectory or db2.jcc.override.traceDirectory
Enables the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ trace for Java driver
code, and specifies a directory into which trace information is written. These
properties do not apply to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2
connectivity on DB2 for z/OS. When db2.jcc.override.traceDirectory is
specified, trace information for multiple connections on the same DataSource is
written to multiple files.
When db2.jcc.override.traceDirectory is specified, a connection is traced to a
file named file-name_origin_n.
v n is the nth connection for a DataSource.
314
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
v If neither db2.jcc.traceFileName nor db2.jcc.override.traceFileName is
specified, file-name is traceFile. If db2.jcc.traceFileName or
db2.jcc.override.traceFileName is also specified, file-name is the value of
db2.jcc.traceFileName or db2.jcc.override.traceFileName.
v origin indicates the origin of the log writer that is in use. Possible values of
origin are:
cpds
The log writer for a DB2ConnectionPoolDataSource object.
driver The log writer for a DB2Driver object.
global The log writer for a DB2TraceManager object.
sds
The log writer for a DB2SimpleDataSource object.
xads
The log writer for a DB2XADataSource object.
The db2.jcc.override.traceDirectory property overrides the traceDirectory
property for a Connection or DataSource object.
For example, specifying the following setting for db2.jcc.override.traceDirectory
enables tracing of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ Java code to
files in a directory named /SYSTEM/tmp:
db2.jcc.override.traceDirectory=/SYSTEM/tmp
You should set the trace properties under the direction of IBM Software
Support.
db2.jcc.traceLevel or db2.jcc.override.traceLevel
Specifies what to trace.
The db2.jcc.override.traceLevel property overrides the traceLevel property for
a Connection or DataSource object.
You specify one or more trace levels by specifying a decimal value. The trace
levels are the same as the trace levels that are defined for the traceLevel
property on a Connection or DataSource object.
To specify more than one trace level, do an OR (|) operation on the values,
and specify the result in decimal in the db2.jcc.traceLevel or
db2.jcc.override.traceLevel specification.
For example, suppose that you want to specify TRACE_DRDA_FLOWS and
TRACE_CONNECTIONS for db2.jcc.override.traceLevel.
TRACE_DRDA_FLOWS has a hexadecimal value of X'40'.
TRACE_CONNECTION_CALLS has a hexadecimal value of X'01'. To specify
both traces, do a bitwise OR operation on the two values, which results in
X'41'. The decimal equivalent is 65, so you specify:
db2.jcc.override.traceLevel=65
db2.jcc.traceFile or db2.jcc.override.traceFile
Enables the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ trace for Java driver
code, and specifies the name on which the trace file names are based.The
db2.jcc.traceFile property does not apply to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
Specify a fully qualified z/OS UNIX System Services file name for the
db2.jcc.override.traceFile property value.
The db2.jcc.override.traceFile property overrides the traceFile property for a
Connection or DataSource object.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
315
For example, specifying the following setting for db2.jcc.override.traceFile
enables tracing of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ Java code to
a file named /SYSTEM/tmp/jdbctrace:
db2.jcc.override.traceFile=/SYSTEM/tmp/jdbctrace
You should set the trace properties under the direction of IBM Software
Support.
db2.jcc.traceFileAppend or db2.jcc.override.traceFileAppend
Specifies whether to append to or overwrite the file that is specified by the
db2.jcc.override.traceFile property. These properties do not apply to IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS. Valid
values are true or false. The default is false, which means that the file that is
specified by the traceFile property is overwritten.
The db2.jcc.override.traceFileAppend property overrides the traceFileAppend
property for a Connection or DataSource object.
For example, specifying the following setting for
db2.jcc.override.traceFileAppend causes trace data to be added to the existing
trace file:
db2.jcc.override.traceFileAppend=true
You should set the trace properties under the direction of IBM Software
Support.
db2.jcc.traceFileCount
Specifies the maximum number of trace files for circular tracing. The IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses this property only when
db2.jcc.traceOption is set to 1. The default value is 2.
This property does not apply to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
You should set the trace properties under the direction of IBM Software
Support.
db2.jcc.traceFileSize
Specifies the maximum size of each trace file, for circular tracing. The IBM
Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ uses this property only when
db2.jcc.traceOption is set to 1. The default value is 10485760 (10 MB).
This property does not apply to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
You should set the trace properties under the direction of IBM Software
Support.
db2.jcc.traceOption
Specifies the way in which trace data is collected. The data type of this
property is int. Possible values are:
0
Specifies that a single trace file is generated, and that there is no limit
to the size of the file. This is the default.
1
Specifies that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ does
circular tracing. Circular tracing is done as follows:
1. When an application writes its first trace record, the driver creates a
file.
2. The driver writes trace data to the file.
3. When the size of the file is equal to the value of property
db2.jcc.traceFileSize, the driver creates another file.
316
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
4. The driver repeats steps 2 and 3 until the number of files to which
data has been written is equal to the value of property
db2.jcc.traceFileCount.
5. The driver writes data to the first trace file, overwriting the existing
data.
6. The driver repeats steps 3 through 5 until the application
completes.
The file names for the trace files are the file names that are determined
by the db2.jcc.traceFile, db2.jcc.override.traceFile, db2.jcc.traceDirectory,
db2.jcc.override.traceDirectory property, appended with .1 for the first
file, .2 for the second file, and so on.
This property does not apply to IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
You should set the trace properties under the direction of IBM Software
Support.
db2.jcc.tracePolling
Indicates whether the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ polls the
global configuration file for changes in trace directives and modifies the trace
behavior to match the new trace directives. Possible values are true or false.
False is the default.
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ modifies the trace behavior at
the beginning of the next polling interval after the configuration properties file
is changed. If db2.jcc.tracePolling is set to true while an application is running,
the trace is enabled, and information about all the PreparedStatement objects
that were created by the application before the trace was enabled are dumped
to the trace destination.
db2.jcc.tracePolling polls the following global configuration properties:
v db2.jcc.override.traceLevel
v db2.jcc.override.traceFile
v db2.jcc.override.traceDirectory
v db2.jcc.override.traceFileAppend
v db2.jcc.t2zosTraceFile
v db2.jcc.t2zosTraceBufferSize
v db2.jcc.t2zosTraceWrap
db2.jcc.tracePollingInterval
Specifies the interval, in seconds, for polling the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ global configuration file for changes in trace directives. The
property value is a positive integer. The default is 60. For the specified trace
polling interval to be used, the db2.jcc.tracePollingInterval property must be
set before the driver is loaded and initialized. Changes to
db2.jcc.tracePollingInterval after the driver is loaded and initialized have no
effect.
db2.jcc.t2zosTraceFile
Enables the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ trace for C/C++ native
driver code for IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity,
and specifies the name on which the trace file names are based. This property
is required for collecting trace data for C/C++ native driver code.
Specify a fully qualified z/OS UNIX System Services file name for the
db2.jcct.t2zosTraceFile property value.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
317
For example, specifying the following setting for db2.jcct.t2zosTraceFile enables
tracing of the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ C/C++ native code
to a file named /SYSTEM/tmp/jdbctraceNative:
db2.jcc.t2zosTraceFile=/SYSTEM/tmp/jdbctraceNative
You should set the trace properties under the direction of IBM Software
Support.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.t2zosTraceBufferSize
Specifies the size, in kilobytes, of a trace buffer in virtual storage that is used
for tracing the processing that is done by the C/C++ native driver code. This
value is also the maximum amount of C/C++ native driver trace information
that can be collected.
Specify an integer between 64 (64 KB) and 4096 (4096 KB). The default is 256
(256 KB).
The JDBC driver determines the trace buffer size as shown in the following
table:
Specified value (n)
Trace buffer size (KB)
<64
64
64<=n<128
64
128<=n<256
128
256<=n<512
256
512<=n<1024
512
1024<=n<2048
1024
2048<=n<4096
2048
n>=4096
4096
db2.jcc.t2zosTraceBufferSize is used only if the db2.jcc.t2zosTraceFile property
is set.
Recommendation: To avoid a performance impact, specify a value of 1024 or
less.
For example, to set a trace buffer size of 1024 KB, use this setting:
db2.jcc.t2zosTraceBufferSize=1024
You should set the trace properties under the direction of IBM Software
Support.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.t2zosTraceWrap
Enables or disables wrapping of the SQLJ trace. db2.jcc.t2zosTraceWrap can
have one of the following values:
1
Wrap the trace
0
Do not wrap the trace
The default is 1. This parameter is optional. For example:
DB2SQLJ_TRACE_WRAP=0
318
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
You should set db2.jcc.t2zosTraceWrap only under the direction of IBM
Software Support.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.
db2.jcc.useCcsid420ShapedConverter
Specifies whether Arabic character data that is in EBCDIC CCSID 420 maps to
Cp420S encoding.
db2.jcc.useCcsid420ShapedConverter applies only to connections to DB2 for
z/OS database servers.
If the value of db2.jcc.useCcsid420ShapedConverter is true, CCSID 420 maps
to Cp420S encoding. If the value of db2.jcc.useCcsid420ShapedConverter is
false, CCSID 420 maps to Cp420 encoding. false is the default.
This configuration property applies only to DB2 for z/OS.

Driver support for JDBC APIs
The JDBC drivers that are supported by DB2 and IBM Informix database systems
have different levels of support for JDBC methods.
The following tables list the JDBC interfaces and indicate which drivers supports
them. The drivers and their supported platforms are:
Table 42. JDBC drivers for DB2 and IBM Informix database systems

Associated data source
IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ
DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, DB2 for
z/OS, or IBM Informix

If a method has JDBC 2.0 and JDBC 3.0 forms, the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ supports all forms. The DB2 JDBC Type 2 Driver for Linux, UNIX
and Windows supports only the JDBC 2.0 forms.

IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ support for SQL escape
syntax
The IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ supports SQL escape syntax, as
described in the JDBC 1.0 specification.
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
345
This is the same syntax that is used in vendor escape clauses in ODBC and CLI
applications.
SQL escape syntax is supported in JDBC and SQLJ applications.
SQLJ statement reference information
SQLJ statements are used for transaction control and SQL statement execution.
SQLJ clause
The SQL statements in an SQLJ program are in SQLJ clauses.
Syntax
#sql
connection-declaration-clause
iterator-declaration-clause
executable-clause
;
Usage notes
Keywords in an SQLJ clause are case sensitive, unless those keywords are part of
an SQL statement in an executable clause.
Related reference:
“SQLJ iterator-declaration-clause” on page 351
“SQLJ executable-clause” on page 352
“SQLJ connection-declaration-clause” on page 350
SQLJ host-expression
A host expression is a Java variable or expression that is referenced by SQLJ
clauses in an SQLJ application program.
Syntax
:
IN
OUT
INOUT
simple-variable
(complex-expression)
INDICATOR
:
simple-variable
(complex-expression)
Description
:
Indicates that the variable or expression that follows is a host expression. The
colon must immediately precede the variable or expression.
IN|OUT|INOUT
For a host expression that is used as a parameter in a stored procedure call,
identifies whether the parameter provides data to the stored procedure (IN),
retrieves data from the stored procedure (OUT), or does both (INOUT). The
default is IN.
simple-variable
Specifies a Java unqualified identifier.
complex-expression
Specifies a Java expression that results in a single value.
346
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
INDICATOR :simple-variable or INDICATOR :(complex-expression)
Specifies the optional indicator variable for the corresponding Java host
variable. The data type of the indicator variable must be the Java short type.
The only valid values for :simple-variable or :(complex-expression) are:
For customized applications, and for input, only these values are valid:
Indicator value
Equivalent constant
Meaning of value
-1
sqlj.runtime.ExecutionContext.DBNull
Null
-2, -3, -4, -6

For customized or uncustomized applications, and for output, SQLJ sets one of
these values:
Indicator value
Equivalent constant
Meaning of value
-1
sqlj.runtime.ExecutionContext.DBNull
Retrieved value is SQL NULL
0
Retrieved value is not SQL NULL
Usage notes
v A complex expression must be enclosed in parentheses.
v ANSI/ISO rules govern where a host expression can appear in a static SQL
statement.
v Indicator variables are required in the following cases:
– For input, when a Java primitive type is used to assign the NULL value to a
table column.

SQLJ implements-clause
The implements clause derives one or more classes from a Java interface.
Syntax
,
implements interface-element
interface-element:
sqlj.runtime.ForUpdate
sqlj.runtime.Scrollable
user-specified-interface-class
Description
interface-element
Specifies a user-defined Java interface, the SQLJ interface
sqlj.runtime.ForUpdate or the SQLJ interface sqlj.runtime.Scrollable.
You need to implement sqlj.runtime.ForUpdate when you declare an iterator
for a positioned UPDATE or positioned DELETE operation. See "Perform
positioned UPDATE and DELETE operations in an SQLJ application" for
information on performing a positioned UPDATE or positioned DELETE
operation in SQLJ.
You need to implement sqlj.runtime.Scrollable when you declare a
scrollable iterator. See "Use scrollable iterators in an SQLJ application" for
information on scrollable iterators.

Description
holdability
For an iterator, specifies whether an iterator keeps its position in a table after a
COMMIT is executed. The value for holdability must be true or false.
sensitivity
For an iterator, specifies whether changes that are made to the underlying table
can be visible to the iterator after it is opened. The value must be
sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.INSENSITIVE,
sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.SENSITIVE, or
sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.ASENSITIVE. The default is
sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.ASENSITIVE.
For connections to IBM Informix, only
sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.INSENSITIVE is supported.
dynamic
For an iterator that is defined with
sensitivity=sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator.SENSITIVE, specifies whether the
following cases are true:
v When the application executes positioned UPDATE and DELETE statements
with the iterator, those changes are visible to the iterator.
v When the application executes INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE statements
within the application but outside the iterator, those changes are visible to
the iterator.
The value for dynamic must be true or false. The default is false.
DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows servers do not support dynamic scrollable
cursors. Specify true only if your application accesses data on DB2 for z/OS
servers, at Version 9 or later.
For connections to IBM Informix, only false is supported. IBM Informix does
not support dynamic cursors.
updateColumns
For an iterator, specifies the columns that are to be modified when the iterator
is used for a positioned UPDATE statement. The value for updateColumns
must be a literal string that contains the column names, separated by commas.
column-name
For an iterator, specifies a column of the result table that is to be updated
using the iterator.
Java-ID
For an iterator or connection context, specifies a Java variable that identifies a
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
349
user-defined attribute of the iterator or connection context. The value of
Java-constant-expression is also user-defined.
dataSource
For a connection context, specifies the logical name of a separately-created
DataSource object that represents the data source to which the application will
connect. This option is available only for the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ.
Usage notes
v The value on the left side of a with element must be unique within its with
clause.
v If you specify updateColumns in a with element of an iterator declaration
clause, the iterator declaration clause must also contain an implements clause
that specifies the sqlj.runtime.ForUpdate interface.
v If you do not customize your SQLJ program, the JDBC driver ignores the value
of holdability that is in the with clause. Instead, the driver uses the JDBC driver
setting for holdability.

SQLJ iterator-declaration-clause
An iterator declaration clause declares a positioned iterator class or a named
iterator class in an SQLJ application program.
An iterator contains the result table from a query. SQLJ generates an iterator class
for each iterator declaration clause you specify. An iterator is an object of an
iterator class.
An iterator declaration clause has a form for a positioned iterator and a form for a
named iterator. The two kinds of iterators are distinct and incompatible Java types
that are implemented with different interfaces.

implements-clause
See "SQLJ implements-clause" for a description of this clause. For an iterator
declaration clause that declares an iterator for a positioned UPDATE or
positioned DELETE operation, the implements clause must specify interface
sqlj.runtime.ForUpdate. For an iterator declaration clause that declares a
scrollable iterator, the implements clause must specify interface
sqlj.runtime.Scrollable.
with-clause
See "SQLJ with-clause" for a description of this clause.
positioned-iterator-column-declarations
Specifies a list of Java data types, which are the data types of the columns in
the positioned iterator. The data types in the list must be separated by
commas. The order of the data types in the positioned iterator declaration is
the same as the order of the columns in the result table. For online checking
during serialized profile customization to succeed, the data types of the
columns in the iterator must be compatible with the data types of the columns
in the result table. See "Java, JDBC, and SQL data types" for a list of compatible
data types.
named-iterator-column-declarations
Specifies a list of Java data types and Java identifiers, which are the data types
and names of the columns in the named iterator. Pairs of data types and names
must be separated by commas. The name of a column in the iterator must
match, except for case, the name of a column in the result table. For online
checking during serialized profile customization to succeed, the data types of
the columns in the iterator must be compatible with the data types of the
columns in the result table. See "Java, JDBC, and SQL data types" for a list of
compatible data types.
Usage notes
v An iterator declaration clause can appear anywhere in a Java program that a
Java class declaration can appear.
v When a named iterator declaration contains more than one pair of Java data
types and Java IDs, all Java IDs within the list must be unique. Two Java IDs are
not unique if they differ only in case.

sqlj.runtime.ConnectionContext interface
The sqlj.runtime.ConnectionContext interface provides a set of methods that
manage SQL operations that are performed during a session with a specific data
source.
Translation of an SQLJ connection declaration clause causes SQLJ to create a
connection context class. A connection context object maintains a JDBC Connection
object on which dynamic SQL operations can be performed. A connection context
object also maintains a default ExecutionContext object.
Variables

sqlj.runtime.ForUpdate interface
SQLJ implements the sqlj.runtime.ForUpdate interface in SQLJ programs that
contain an iterator declaration clause with implements sqlj.runtime.ForUpdate.
An SQLJ program that does positioned UPDATE or DELETE operations
(UPDATE...WHERE CURRENT OF or DELETE...WHERE CURRENT OF) must
include an iterator declaration clause with implements sqlj.runtime.ForUpdate.
Methods
getCursorName
Format:
public abstract String getCursorName() throws SQLException
This method is used by code that is generated by the SQLJ translator. It is not
intended for direct use by application programs.
sqlj.runtime.NamedIterator interface
The sqlj.runtime.NamedIterator interface is implemented when an SQLJ
application executes an iterator declaration clause for a named iterator.
A named iterator includes result table column names, and the order of the columns
in the iterator is not important.
An implementation of the sqlj.runtime.NamedIterator interface includes an
accessor method for each column in the result table. An accessor method returns
the data from its column of the result table. The name of an accessor method
matches the name of the corresponding column in the named iterator.

sqlj.runtime.PositionedIterator interface
The sqlj.runtime.PositionedIterator interface is implemented when an SQLJ
application executes an iterator declaration clause for a positioned iterator.
The order of columns in a positioned iterator must be the same as the order of
columns in the result table, and a positioned iterator does not include result table
column names.
Methods
sqlj.runtime.PositionedIterator inherits all ResultSetIterator methods, and
includes the following additional method:
endFetch
Format:
public abstract boolean endFetch() throws SQLException
Returns a value of true if the iterator is not positioned on a row. Returns a
value of false if the iterator is positioned on a row.
sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator interface
The sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator interface is implemented by SQLJ for all
iterator declaration clauses.
An untyped iterator can be generated by declaring an instance of the
sqlj.runtime.ResultSetIterator interface directly. In general, use of untyped
iterators is not recommended.

Format:
public void setMaxFieldSize(int max-bytes)
Specifies the maximum number of bytes that are returned for any string
(character, graphic, or varying-length binary) column in queries that use the
given execution context. If this limit is exceeded, SQLJ discards the remaining
bytes.
Parameters:
max-bytes
The maximum number of bytes that SQLJ should return from a BINARY,
VARBINARY, CHAR, VARCHAR, GRAPHIC, or VARGRAPHIC column. A
value of 0 means that the number of bytes is unlimited. 0 is the default.
setMaxRows
Format:

Specifies the maximum number of rows that are returned for any query that
uses the given execution context. If this limit is exceeded, SQLJ discards the
remaining rows.
When setMaxRows is invoked at run time on a statically executed SELECT
statement, setMaxRows limits the maximum number of rows in the result table
through IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ processing only. Data
server optimization that limits the number of rows in the result table does not
occur unless the FETCH FIRST n ROWS ONLY clause is also added to the
SELECT statement. If FETCH FIRST n rows ONLY is added to the SELECT
statement, and setMaxRows(m) is called, the maximum number of rows is the
smaller of n and m. The driver discards the rest of the rows.
Parameters:
max-rows
The maximum number of rows that SQLJ should return for a query that
uses the given execution context. A value of 0 means that the number of
rows is unlimited. 0 is the default.
setQueryTimeout
Format:
public synchronized void setQueryTimeout(int timeout-value)
Specifies the maximum number of seconds that SQL operations that use the
given execution context object can execute. If an SQL operation exceeds the
limit, an SQLException is thrown.
For IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for
z/OS data servers, setQueryTimeout is supported only if Connection or
DataSource property queryTimeoutInterruptProcessingMode is set to
INTERRUPT_PROCESSING_MODE_CLOSE_SOCKET.
Parameters:
380
Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
timeout-value

sqlj.runtime.UnicodeStream class
The sqlj.runtime.UnicodeStream class is for an input stream of Unicode data with
a specified length.
The sqlj.runtime.UnicodeStream class is derived from the java.io.InputStream
class, and extends the sqlj.runtime.StreamWrapper class. SQLJ interprets the bytes
in an sqlj.runtime.UnicodeStream object as Unicode characters. An InputStream
object with Unicode characters needs to be passed as a
sqlj.runtime.UnicodeStream object.
Constructors
UnicodeStream(InputStream)
Format:
public UnicodeStream(java.io.InputStream input-stream)
Creates a Unicode java.io.InputStream object with an unspecified length.
Parameters:
input-stream
The InputStream object that SQLJ interprets as an UnicodeStream object.
UnicodeStream(InputStream, int)
Format:
public UnicodeStream(java.io.InputStream input-stream, int length)
Creates a Unicode java.io.InputStream object with a specified length.
Parameters:

The second of these forms of reuseDB2Connection does not apply to IBM Data
Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 2 connectivity on DB2 for z/OS.
These forms of reuseDB2Connection are used by a trusted application server to
reuse a preexisting trusted connection on behalf of a new user. Properties that
can be reset are passed, including the new user ID. The database server resets
the associated physical connection. If reuseDB2Connection executes successfully,
the connection becomes available for immediate use, with different properties,
by the new user.
Parameter descriptions:
cookie
A unique cookie that the JDBC driver generates for the Connection
instance. The cookie is known only to the application server and the
underlying JDBC driver that established the initial trusted connection. The
application server passes the cookie that was created by the driver when
the pooled connection instance was created. The JDBC driver checks that
the supplied cookie matches the cookie of the underlying trusted physical
connection to ensure that the request originated from the application server
that established the trusted physical connection. If the cookies match, the
connection becomes available for immediate use, with different properties,
by the new user .

Application Programming Guide and Reference for Java
The second form of getDB2Connection is supported only for IBM Data Server
Driver for JDBC and SQLJ type 4 connectivity.
Parameter descriptions:
cookie
A unique cookie that the JDBC driver generates for the Connection
instance. The cookie is known only to the application server and the
underlying JDBC driver that established the initial trusted connection. The
application server passes the cookie that was created by the driver when
the pooled connection instance was created. The JDBC driver checks that
the supplied cookie matches the cookie of the underlying trusted physical
connection to ensure that the request originated from the application server
that established the trusted physical connection. If the cookies match, the
connection can become available, with different properties, for immediate
use by a new user .
user
The client identity that is used by the data source to establish the
authorization ID for the database server. If the user was not authenticated
by the application server, the application server must pass a user identity
that represents an unauthenticated user.
password
The password for user.
gssCredential
If the data source uses Kerberos security, specifies a delegated credential
that is passed from another principal.
userNameRegistry
A name that identifies a mapping service that maps a workstation user ID
to a z/OS RACF ID. An example of a mapping service is the Integrated
Security Services Enterprise Identity Mapping (EIM). The mapping service
is defined by a plugin. Valid values for userNameRegistry are defined by the
plugin providers. If userNameRegistry is null, the connection does not use a
mapping service.
userSecToken
The client's security tokens. This value is traced as part of DB2 for z/OS
accounting data. The content of userSecToken is described by the application
server and is referred to by the data source as an application server
security token.
originalUser
The client identity that sends the original request to the application server.
originalUser is included in DB2 for z/OS accounting data as the original
user ID that was used by the application server.

getPoolMonitor
Format:
public static DB2PoolMonitor getPoolMonitor(int monitorType)
Retrieves an instance of the DB2PoolMonitor class.
Parameter descriptions:
monitorType
The monitor type. This value must be
DB2PoolMonitor.TRANSPORT_OBJECT.
heavyWeightReusedObjectCount
Format:
public abstract int heavyWeightReusedObjectCount()
Retrieves the number of objects that were reused from the pool.
lightWeightReusedObjectCount
Format:
public abstract int lightWeightReusedObjectCount()
Retrieves the number of objects that were reused but were not in the pool. This
can happen if a Connection object releases a transport object at a transaction
boundary. If the Connection object needs a transport object later, and the
original transport object has not been used by any other Connection object, the
Connection object can use that transport object.
longestBlockedRequestTime
Format:
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
433
public abstract long longestBlockedRequestTime()
Retrieves the longest amount of time that a request was blocked, in
milliseconds.
numberOfConnectionReleaseRefused
Format:
public abstract int numberOfConnectionReleaseRefused()
Retrieves the number of times that the release of a connection was refused.
numberOfRequestsBlocked
Format:
public abstract int numberOfRequestsBlocked()
Retrieves the number of requests that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ made to the pool that the pool blocked because the pool reached its
maximum capacity. A blocked request might be successful if an object is
returned to the pool before the db2.jcc.maxTransportObjectWaitTime is
exceeded and an exception is thrown.
numberOfRequestsBlockedDataSourceMax
Format:
public abstract int numberOfRequestsBlockedDataSourceMax()
Retrieves the number of requests that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ made to the pool that the pool blocked because the pool reached the
maximum for the DataSource object.
numberOfRequestsBlockedPoolMax
Format:
public abstract int numberOfRequestsBlockedPoolMax()
Retrieves the number of requests that the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ made to the pool that the pool blocked because the maximum
number for the pool was reached.
removedObjectCount
Format:
public abstract int removedObjectCount()
Retrieves the number of objects that have been deleted from the pool since the
pool was created.
shortestBlockedRequestTime
Format:
public abstract long shortestBlockedRequestTime()
Retrieves the shortest amount of time that a request was blocked, in
milliseconds.
successfullRequestsFromPool
Format:
public abstract int successfullRequestsFromPool()
Retrieves the number of successful requests that the IBM Data Server Driver
for JDBC and SQLJ has made to the pool since the pool was created. A
successful request means that the pool returned an object.

totalPoolObjects
Format:
public abstract int totalPoolObjects()
Retrieves the number of objects that are currently in the pool.
totalRequestsToPool
Format:
public abstract int totalRequestsToPool()
Retrieves the total number of requests that the IBM Data Server Driver for
JDBC and SQLJ has made to the pool since the pool was created.
totalTimeBlocked
Format:
public abstract long totalTimeBlocked()
Retrieves the total time in milliseconds for requests that were blocked by the
pool. This time can be much larger than the elapsed execution time of the
application if the application uses multiple threads.
DB2PreparedStatement interface
The com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2PreparedStatement interface extends the
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Statement and java.sql.PreparedStatement interfaces.
DB2PreparedStatement fields
The following constants are defined only for the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ.
public static DBIndicatorDefault DB_PARAMETER_DEFAULT
This constant can be used with standard interfaces, such as
PreparedStatement.setObject or ResultSet.updateObject to indicate that the
default value is assigned to the associated parameter.
public static DBIndicatorUnassigned DB_PARAMETER_UNASSIGNED
This constant can be used with standard interfaces, such as
PreparedStatement.setObject or ResultSet.updateObject to indicate that the
associated parameter is unaassigned.
DB2PreparedStatement methods
The following methods are defined only for the IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC
and SQLJ.
executeDB2QueryBatch
Format:
public void executeDB2QueryBatch()
throws java.sql.SQLException
Executes a statement batch that contains queries with parameters.
This method is not supported for connections to IBM Informix data sources.
getDBGeneratedKeys
Format:
public java.sql.ResultSet[] getDBGeneratedKeys()
throws java.sql.SQLException
Chapter 7. JDBC and SQLJ reference information
435
Retrieves automatically generated keys that were created when INSERT
statements were executed in a batch. Each ResultSet object that is returned
contains the automatically generated keys for a single statement in the batch.
getDBGeneratedKeys returns an array of length 0 under the following
conditions:
v getDBGeneratedKeys is called out of sequence. For example, if
getDBGeneratedKeys is called before executeBatch, an array of length 0 is
returned.
v The PreparedStatement that is executed in a batch was not created using one
of the following methods:
Connection.prepareStatement(String sql, int[] autoGeneratedKeys)
Connection.prepareStatement(String sql, String[] autoGeneratedColumnNames)
Connection.prepareStatement(String sql, Statement.RETURN_GENERATED_KEYS)
If getDBGeneratedKeys is called against a PreparedStatement that was created
using one of the previously listed methods, and the PreparedStatement is not
in a batch, a single ResultSet is returned.
getEstimateCost
Format:
public int getEstimateCost()
throws java.sql.SQLException
Returns the estimated cost of an SQL statement from the data server after the
data server dynamically prepares the statement successfully. This value is the
same as the fourth element in the sqlerrd array of the SQLCA.
If the deferPrepares property is set to true, calling getEstimateCost causes the
data server to execute a dynamic prepare operation.
If the SQL statement cannot be prepared, or the data server does not return
estimated cost information at prepare time, getEstimateCost returns -1.
getEstimateRowCount
Format:
public int getEstimateRowCount()
throws java.sql.SQLException
Returns the estimated row count for an SQL statement from the data server
after the data server dynamically prepares the statement successfully. This
value is the same as the third element in the sqlerrd array of the SQLCA.
If the deferPrepares property is set to true, calling getEstimateRowCount causes
the data server to execute a dynamic prepare operation.
If the SQL statement cannot be prepared, or the data server does not return
estimated row count information at prepare time, getEstimateRowCount returns
-1.
