If you use PreparedStatement.setString, any required quoting/escaping
should be done for you. If you are building a SQL string yourself than
you are responsible for escaping it correctly. You haven't said what
you're doing, but I find it hard to believe that it's postgresql's fault
or that DB2 has some magic to interpret bad data. Perhaps you could be
more specific in what your code is doing?
