I used this SQL for creating my test table, and I still cannot reproduce the 
error. I have tried both the client driver and the embedded driver of

This probably fails because of missing single quotes around the "chipRelease" 
value (simulationResult.getChipRelease(), which is a String/VARCHAR). I was able 
to reproduce it, replacing the method calls with variable names containing 
String ("Sputnik001") and longs (11L and 22L, respectively). Adding the single 
quotes made the problem go away.

It's good to hear that using PreparedStatement solved the problem. 
PreparedStatements have many advantages over Statements that many JDBC users are 
not aware of - performance, security, memory usage, etc. But I guess you are 
right, it is not necessarily the best choice in _all_ situations.
