Java Programming with Oracle SQLJ
By Jason Price

by Jason Price

This excerpt is Chapter 8 from Java Programming with Oracle SQLJ, published in August 2001 by O'Reilly.

There are two important objects used in SQLJ that affect the execution of database operations: connection contexts and execution contexts. Connection contexts are used to connect to a database. All embedded SQL statements within a SQLJ program run in a connection context. Connection contexts make it possible to create multiple connections to a database or to connect to more than one database at a time. An execution context is used to hold the number of rows affected by a SQL operation, along with any warnings generated by the database. Execution contexts are used to control certain aspects of how a SQL statement is executed. For example, you can use an execution context to control the timeout period after which a SQL operation is abandoned.

A multithreaded program is one that is able to carry out several tasks in parallel using Java threads. As you will see in this chapter, execution contexts are very important when writing a multithreaded SQLJ program.

In this chapter:
