Hi Ranchers,

I am inserting the csv data through java in oracle.I want to check the whether the data I am inserting already exists in
table or not in insert query itself. Can I do that.

Because checking through select query before inserting the data is making the application heavy.

thanks in advance.

Vijay,
There are two approaches:
1) Do a select first
2) Insert it anyway and fail on duplicate constraint

Which one you choose depends on the likelyhood of a duplicate occurring.

Insert any way does not work here because when exception occurs while inserting records one by one the code goes out of loop afterwards in java. And select first I think making the application heavy as for every insert it needs to be fire a query. How to handle that.
