When I try it like above (using conn.prepaleCall), i get this:

2007-02-26 16:58:19.004 CET [9592] <jura> SELECTERROR:  function
f1(record) does not exist
2007-02-26 16:58:19.004 CET [9592] <jura> SELECTHINT:  No function
matches the given name and argument types. You may need to add explicit
type casts.

I know I can't but I still tried creating function with record-type
parametar, postgres won't let me do so.

I tried SELECT f1(ROW(1, 'one'));, that works. If I try it like this:
SELECT f1(ROW(1, 'one', 'two)), postgres tells me I have to many
columns, and it can't cast to t1 type.

If, in Java code, i do my call like this:

conn.prepareCall("{call f1(ROW(?, ?, ?)}"

and set all three parametars, I still get 'function f1(record) does not
exist', no complaints about missing or to many columns.

I'm using pg7.4 JDBC driver with pg8.1.2, and I tought that might be the
problem. But I switched to postgresql-8.1-407.jdbc3.jar, and I still get
the same error.
