Subject [jira] Commented: (DBUTILS-42) Object with Long or Decimal got initial zero value while database field is null
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2008 16:55:08 GMT


Julien Aymé commented on DBUTILS-42:

By looking through the subversion repository, I found that in DbUtils 1.0 only rs.getObject(index)
was used, which effectively returned <code>null</code> when the value is SQL NULL.

The problem is that some database, when using getObject, will return a BigInteger instead
of a Long (for example), so I assume that this was the (a) reason for which the method getLong
has been used instead of getObject.

A simple fix could be:

Object res = new Long(rs.getLong(index));
return rs.wasNull() ? null : res;

(And generalize the given code for all the different types in the method processColumn).

I will provide the corresponding patch this evening (cannot use svn:checkout at my current
place, only have a web browser).

>             Project: Commons DbUtils
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 1.1
>         Environment: JDK 5.0, MSSQL 2000
>            Reporter: Matt Jiang
> While I use dbutil1.1, I got a big different implementation betweeb 1.0 and 1.1.
> Given a Java object, it has a property with Long data type; mapping to database, its
table field datatype is bigint.
> If it has a record and its value is null.
> In 1.0 implementation, if I load entity, then we can see the property in Java object
is also null.
> But in 1.1 implementation, the Java object will got a Long object with 0 inside.
> This behavior change does big impact if I upgrade from 1.0 to 1.1. It might make application
logic fail because origional null status now become a Long(0) value to map to null value in
> I suggest to change it back. If null value in database, then mapped Java object should
be null as well, not new a Long(0) to be a initial value.
> Below is the code snapshot I used to execute query, and I use jTDS 1.2 as JDBC driver
> public List<E> executePreparedQuery(String sql, Object[] params, Class clazz) throws
SQLException {
>     Connection cnct = getConnection();
>     QueryRunner qRunner = new QueryRunner();
>     ResultSetHandler rsHandler = new BeanListHandler(clazz);
>     List<E> entities = null;
>     try {
>     	convertDateIn(params);
>     	entities = (List<E>) qRunner.query(cnct, sql, params, rsHandler);
>     }
>     catch (SQLException e) {
>     	e.printStackTrace();
>     	throw e;
>     }
>     finally {
>     	closeConnection();
>     }
>     return entities;
>   }
> Hope this helps.
