Subject RE: how to create custom TypeHandlerCallback to trim stringwhitespace
Date Fri, 18 Jan 2008 22:40:22 GMT
I had posted a way to insert a string array into oracle table. I am not
sure if that is gonna help you, but somehow feel you could use the

public void setParameter(ParameterSetter setter, Object parameter)
throws SQLException {

if (parameter instanceof ArrayList) {
ArrayList arr = (ArrayList)parameter;
Statement stmt = setter.getPreparedStatement();
Connection conn = stmt.getConnection();
ArrayDescriptor desc = ArrayDescriptor.createDescriptor("STRARRAY",
conn); // The STRARRAY is the name of the oracle type created as the
instance of table.
parameter = new ARRAY(desc, conn,arr.toArray());


The full class is available in the user list for subject  "Call stored
procedure with reference to a table as the input param.".  I feel that
your current type handler is not able to distinguish between char array
and string and you might wanna use char[](jdbctype=ARRAY) as a type in
your type handler and remove the last char of the array that comes out
as an output in the typehandler code. Not sure if it might work, but
feel that it could be well be tried out.

Well the database designer chose to use CHAR(6), so I wouldn't have this
problem if it were VARCHAR but since it's CHAR, I believe the informix
driver pads it with extra spacing hence the need for some kind of custom
handler which I can't get to work...

Thanks, Jason
