hello,
i am using preparestatement to insert muliple rows into database.

String query = "insert into table_temp(col1,col2) values(?,?)";   
pstmt = con.prepareStatement(query);   
pstmt.setString(1,"a");   
pstmt.setInt(2,100);   
pstmt.addBatch();   
pstmt.setString(1,"b");   
pstmt.setInt(2,null);   
pstmt.addBatch();   
int[] cnt = pstmt.executeBatch();

My problem is that in the 2nd addBatch block i dont want to insert any value into the col2, which is a numeric field.
And i dont want to do it in a different query.
How to do that.
Please help

Check the API for the PrepareStatement class. There is something called: setNull(int, int) . The first argument is the index of the '?' and the other the type of the column.

Assuming that col2 is type of NUMBER at your database table then you can do this:

pstmt.setNull(2, java.sql.Types.NUMERIC)

instead of this:

//pstmt.setInt(2,null);

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/sql/PreparedStatement.html#setNull%28int,%20int%29

Thanks a lot for your precious instructions
