This is a bug Derby-123 and is fixed in the development trunk.


Though as Jeff said, using doubles and DECIMAL may lead to unexpected
results due to mixing of imprecise and precise values.

You can also use setString() on most types in Derby, thus the above line
could have been

pstmt.setString(1, "32.78");

That will insert the correct value in Derby's current release
