Pg supports real server-side prepared statements, as does the JDBC driver.
IIRC (and I can't say this with 100% certainty without checking the
sources or a good look at TFM) the PostgreSQL JDBC driver initially does
only a client-side prepare. However, if the PreparedStatement is re-used
more than a certain number of times (five by default?) it switches to
server-side prepared statements.
This has actually caused a bunch of performance complaints on the jdbc
list, because the query plan may change at that switch-over point, since
with a server-side prepared statement Pg no longer has a specific value
for each parameter and may pick a more generic plan.
Again only IIRC there's a configurable threshold for prepared statement
switch-over. I thought all this was in the PgJDBC documentation and/or
javadoc - if it's not, it needs to be.
