Description:
Mark,

The description in http://www.mysql.com/articles/autoincrement-with-connectorj.html is excellent, but I tried to do this with my prepared statement and it appears that in prepared statements, the stmt.executeUpdate() never has any arguments.
First, I thought this may be only a documentation RFE, but perhaps, the PreparedStatement.java lacks this method signature, i.e.
   .executeUpdate(int autoGeneratedKeys)
 altogether?

Rgds

You need to use the correct method on Connection.prepareStatement(). The following methods allow you to specify which (if any) keys to return:

Connection.prepareStatement(String, int), see:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/sql/Connection.html#prepareStatement(java.lan..., int)

Connection.prepareStatement(String, int[]), see:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/sql/Connection.html#prepareStatement(java.lan..., int[])

Connection.prepareStatement(String, String[]), see:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/sql/Connection.html#prepareStatement(java.lan..., java.lang.String[])

Thanks, I guess this solves it - maybe a one-line amendment to your article that for prepared statements, the "int autoGeneratedKeys" is no longer in executeUpdate(), but in prepareStatement(...) may avoid future, similar questions.
