Martin,
 
No this should work. I had a look at the spec and you should be able to
create multiple statements on the same connection and close the inner
one as many times as you want without affecting the outer statement.
Can you send me enough code to recreate the problem?
 
Dave

I just tried that also and I get the same NullPointerException.
Besides checking to make sure that the Statement is not closed or
executed with a new query before I call result.next(), is there
anything else that could be causing this?
 
Thanks for your help.

Yeah, I downloaded jdbc7.1-1.2.jar from there already and tried it.
The code breaks with that driver but works fine with the previous
driver. I scoured my code for anything that broke the contract for
the JDBC API but couldn't find anything. Would there be any problems
with using the previous driver with the latest release of Postgres as
long as it fixes my problem?

Martin,
 
You should probably try to use the latest driver from
jdbc.postgresql.org
 
This is the latest code,

I can solve this problem by replacing the current JDBC driver with
the 7.0 driver. What changed between the two versions and is anything
affected by using the outdated driver?

A NullPointerException is being thrown from a call to next() in this
(simplified) code snippet:
 
            String sql = "SELECT * FROM my_table";
            stmt = pConn.createStatement();
            
            result = stmt.executeQuery(sql);
            
            while (result.next())
            {
                myObject = populateFromResult(result, true, pConn);
                
                myArrayList.add(myObject);
            }
 
The exception is thrown in the second iteration of the while loop
from result.next(). The method populateFromResult only calls getXXX()
methods on the ResultSet and creates another Statement on the
Connection and uses it to populate other fields in the object. The
Connection and the ResultSet are not closed. The new Statement on the
Connection IS CLOSED (could this be the problem???).
 
After decompiling the jdbc drivers, the offending line of code inside
ResultSet is:
 
if (++current_row >= rows.size())
 
I am using the JDBC drivers compiled from the 7.1.3 release of
Postgres running on Tomcat in Linux. The same code works fine on the
drivers from the 7.1RC2 release running on Resin in Windows.
 
The only previous posts I have found describing this problem
concluded that the problem was caused by closing the Statement or
executing a new query on it before the subsequent call to next(). I
have examined my code closely and am not using the ResultSet or
Statement for anything other than what you see in the code above.
 
Has anyone run across this problem? Does anyone have any suggestions?
