Hi Tuhin, welcome to the Ranch!

Your PreparedStatement has 7 parameters, but your code fails to set parameter number 5 and then tries to set parameter number 8. At which point it fails. You said

But you would have been able to locate it if you had put



in your catch block. That would print a stack trace which tells you not only the actual error thrown but also the line of code which threw it. I'm sure you'll agree that is much more useful information than just the word "error".
