Subject Re: Java stored procedure performing insert/update/delete
Date Thu, 01 Aug 2013 15:27:22 GMT
As far as I could tell, the embedded driver was always returning zero.  
That happens from both executeUpdate() and getUpdateCount().  Now its 
very possible that I did not code the stored procedure properly in 
terms of how Derby expects to "see" the update count.  I followed 
examples, but maybe I missed something.

And the options of using a function nor an (IN)OUT parameter is not an 
option unfortunately.

I am trying to spin up unit tests here, so have only used in-process 
dbs thus far for testing this.  Specifically H2 and then Derby.  
Neither returned what I expect based on JDBC.  Thomas agrees H2 does 
not do this properly.

In terms of expectation, the execute() call should of course execute 
the proc.  Since this proc does not return results, execute() should 
return false.  Then getUpdateCount() ought to return the number of rows 
"modified" by the call, or -1 if no modification was done.  0 and -1 
are distinctly different according to the spec.  I hate "magic values" 
as much as anyone, but the spec says what it says ;)
