Hi,

I am having problems getting info on tables with getTables. I get null
returned all of the time. 

I looked at this url, which I don't know if it is very recent or not.


http://www.postgresql.org/docs/pgsql/src/interfaces/jdbc/org/postgresql/jdbc
2/DatabaseMetaData.java



public java.sql.ResultSet getTables(String catalog, String schemaPattern,
String tableNamePattern, String types[]) throws SQLException
  {
    // Handle default value for types
    if(types==null)
      types = defaultTableTypes;

    if(tableNamePattern==null)
      tableNamePattern="%";

    // the field descriptors for the new ResultSet
    Field f[] = new Field[5];
    java.sql.ResultSet r;       // ResultSet for the SQL query that we need
to do
    Vector v = new Vector();            // The new ResultSet tuple stuff

    f[0] = new Field(connection, "TABLE_CAT", iVarcharOid, 32);
    f[1] = new Field(connection, "TABLE_SCHEM", iVarcharOid, 32);
    f[2] = new Field(connection, "TABLE_NAME", iVarcharOid, 32);
    f[3] = new Field(connection, "TABLE_TYPE", iVarcharOid, 32);
    f[4] = new Field(connection, "REMARKS", iVarcharOid, 32);

I was using this code 



snip:


//String [] onlytables = new String[3];
            //onlytables[0] = "TABLE";
            //onlytables[1] = "INDEX"; 
            ResultSet tableRS =
m_inputCon.getMetaData().getTables(null,null,"%",null);

/* I had used the String [] onlytables in place of null, but I got

        java.sql.SQLException: ERROR:  parser: parse error at or near ")"

            while (tableRS.next())
                
            {
            
                
                String tableType = tableRS.getString(4);  // make sure that
this is a table and not an index.
                                                                              .
                System.out.println("TABLE TYPE IS: "+tableType);
                if ( tableType.compareTo( "TABLE") !=0 ) {
                    
                    tableRS.next();
                }
               
                
                
                String onetable = tableRS.getString(3); // table name int is
faster that "TABLE_NAME"
                
                
snip:

Now when  I read the JDBC API It says that the TABLE_NAME is column 3 and
TABLE_TYPE should be column 4 in the getTables ResultSet.
It looks to me like that is messed up with. 

 f[2] = new Field(connection, "TABLE_NAME", iVarcharOid, 32);
 f[3] = new Field(connection, "TABLE_TYPE", iVarcharOid, 32);


I may be way off here, in my guessing, but I can't get getTables table type
to return a type. 

I am using the 7.0 driver with the jar named 7.0-1.2.jar and Postgress 7.0.3
on the server end.


I hope I didn't get my versions messed up, but that is the other thing I am
not certain about, what is the latest version of the driver and is it
nessicarly in  the current "latest" postgress download?


Thanks,

Eric
