JDBC: calling a stored procedure with multiple return values.

P: n/a
Using JDBC, is there a way to call a stored procedure with multiple
return values? Thanks.

Absolutely. What do you mean by 'multiple return values'? Multiple output
parameters? Multiple result sets and/or update counts? Multiple mixes of
result sets and update counts?
If you will show the procedure signature and maybe even the text? Tell
us what the body of the procedure returns.

Thanks for the reply. I meant "multiple output parameters".

Here is how I execute the stored procedure:

declare @ErrorID int
declare @ErrorStr varchar(255)
exec procName
@customerId = '1234567890',
@customerName = 'some name',
@error_code = @ErrorID,
@error_state = @ErrorStr
Here is the procedure:

create procedure uxt1.procName
@customerId char(15) output,
@customerName char(64) output,
@error_code int output,
@error_state varchar(255) output
.... ...
/* all the business logic */
.... ...
return (@error_state)
GO
Here's what SQL server gives me if I do a "Script object as Execute":
DECLARE @RC int
DECLARE @customerId char(15)
DECLARE @customerName char(64)
DECLARE @error_code int
DECLARE @error_state varchar(255)
EXEC @RC = [uxt1].[procName] @customerId, @customerName, @error_code
OUTPUT , @error_state OUTPUT
The following is what I've tried in a Java program:
....
CallableStatement cs = conn.prepareCall(" {? = call
uxt1.procName(?,?,?,?)}" );
cs.registerOutParameter(1,java.sql.Types.INTEGER);
cs.setString(2,"some ID");
cs.setString(3,"some Name");
cs.registerOutParameter(4,java.sql.Types.INTEGER);
cs.registerOutParameter(5,java.sql.Types.VARCHAR);
ResultSet rs = cs.executeQuery();
....

My code doesn't throw any exception; but the procedure was not executed
correctly (i.e. it's not doing what it's supposed to do, which is to
simply insert some values into a table).
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Is the procedure executing at all? You shouldn't be calling executeQuery()
unless the first thing the procedure does is a select. Use execute() and
then loop:

cs.execute();
while (true)
{
int update_count = ps.getUpdateCount();
ResultSet rs = ps.getResultSet();
if ((rs == null && (update_count == -1)) break; // done

if (rs != null) process rs;
ps.getMoreResults();
}
// after processing inline results, call ps.getXXX() to get output parameters.

Whatever jdbc driver you're suing is pretty flakey if it
returns a result set from executeQuery() and the
procedure didn't do a select for data to go to the caller...

I have closely the same problem, excepting that my stored procs returns a "TABLE".

In fact, I have a SQL function that must return a TABLE and get 2 parameters. Its signature is as follow:

FUNCTION myFunction (@codett varchar(40), @codet varchar(40) )
RETURNS @Tab TABLE([cp] [varchar] (40), [pourcentage] [int])

I'd like to call it from my DAO (using JDBC). having that 'cs' is a CallableStatement, I tried:

cs = jdbcConnection.prepareCall("{? = call myFunction(?, ?)}");
cs.registerOutParameter( 1, Types.OTHER );
cs.setString(2, codett);//codett contains a String
cs.setString(3, codet);//codet contains a String
ResultSet rset = cs.executeQuery();

However, when a get to the "executeQuery()" method, I get an SQLException saying that "myFunction" is a function Object.

have you met such a problem ?
