I don't think the query should give an error - as the query is at least 
syntactically correct.  Certainly, if I check for a queryResult == null, the 
condition doesn't occur for an empty table.

I just had a quick browse on some old JDBC notes and it looks like the correct 
solution is:

queryResult = dbStatement.executeQuery("select max(history_id) from history");
queryResult.next();
nextID = queryResult.getLong(1) + 1;
if (queryResult.wasNull())
	nextID = 0;

Note:  queryResult.wasNull() only works immediately after calling a getxxx 
method.

Thanks.
