This week's book giveaway is in the Testing forum. We're giving away four copies of The Way of the Web Tester: A Beginner's Guide to Automating Tests and have Jonathan Rasmusson on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi, In most of the application we've some auditing information like created by, creation date, etc to be stored in database along with transaction information. This can be done via triggers or explicitly passing this information in SQL constructs through JDBC calls. I recently read about getClientInfo and setClientInfo methods available on connection object in JDBC 4.0 specification. Can we use this information to store user details and get these in database. Am not sure if this is possible. If not, is there any other way apart from triggers and explicitly passing setting these in SQL queries. Don't know if some drivers provide some implementations for this.
