Subject Re: silly question regarding cast from char to int
Date Thu, 15 Feb 2007 22:25:14 GMT
The easiest resolution is to store numbers in number fields in the
database!  But I understand if you can't change the database.

It's really best to change the DAOs.  As an alternative, you could change
the SQL with some database specific code.  For example, in DB2 you could do

select *
from some_table
where integer(database_id) = #java_id#

However be warned that this is a very poor performer and will cause table
scans.  So it's best to change it in the DAO.
