Thanks a lot for your advice. I found the difference: My Java program sends one huge SQL string containing 1000 INSERT statements separated by ';' (without using prepared statements at all!), whereas my C++ program sends one INSERT statement with parameters to be prepared and after that 1000 times parameters. Now I refactured my C++ program to send also 1000 INSERT statements in one call to PQexec and reached the same performance as my Java program.

I just wonder why anyone should use prepared statements at all?
