I run stored procedure for many times:
for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
                s = conn.createStatement();

                sql = "DELETE FROM testtotals";

                begin = new Date();
                sql = "CALL calculateTotal()";
                end = new Date();
                System.out.println("Timing " + (end.getTime() -
                System.out.println("Committed the transaction");

Because it's just example. There should be any function that can not be
replased with pure-SQL. of course SQL can be used in this test, but test
purpose is "check speed of server-side data analysing with big amount of

And what tools can you use to analyse big amount of relation-data? SQL can
not be used in many cases. So people usually use stored procedures in RDBMS
- PL/SQL in Oracle. I have idea: replase Oracle with Java application. And
that Java application have RDBMS inside (like Derby in Embedded mode).

PS does derby / javaDB have it's own forum?
