How do you specify how to interpret the elements of the array? e.g. how 
should this be handled? :

  Object[] awkwardArray = new Object[] { new Integer(42), "42", "foo" };
  statement.setObject(1, awkwardArray);

JDBC2's PreparedStatement.setArray() is the standard way: you wrap the 
underlying array in an appropriate Array implementation of your own. 
This also solves the problem of deciding how to interpret the array 
elements: the Array interface allows you to explicitly provide a SQL 
type for the elements.

However the CVS driver does not implement setArray usefully for this 
case. I have an unapplied patch that was posted to the list some time 
ago that implements this (getting quite old now..), which is a bit of a 
nasty hack but does the job. See
