InstantDB: Re: SQLException Error


Patty

As you say, Key is a SQL reserved word. I think the [Key] style of escaping
keywords may be a proprietary extension (Access?), but I don't think it's
allowed by the SQL standard.

If you happen to be using InstantDB then you *might* still be able to get
this to work if you add the property

ignoreKeywords=key

to your .prp file then KEY will be removed from the list of recognised
keywords. However, the effect of this on the SQL parsing is pretty hit and
miss.

Regards

Pete

Subject: JDBC: SQLException Error


> Hi. I keep getting an error when executing this query on a data base:
> "SELECT Key, Value FROM My_Database_Name"
> "SELECT [Key], [Value] FROM My_Database_Name"
> "SELECT * FROM My_Database_Name"
>
> ... none of these work. The error message is always the same:
> "java.sql.SQLException: java.sql.SQLException: Incorrect syntax near the
> keyword 'Key'.".
> This means that the attribute (key) in my table is a reserved word. The
>  and ] are supposed to eliminate any ambiguity between parameters and
> reserved words. This SQL query can run from an SQL query analyser, but not
> thru the enhydra server.
>
> Please tell me if you smart fellows have ever seen this before... and
well,
> you guys know the drill.
> Thanks for your time,
