You need use SAVEPOINT in transaction:

do {
String savepointName = "any string"+class.hasCode();
Savepoint savePoint = conn.setSavepoint(savepointName);
try {
success = true;
} catch (SQLException sqle) {
} while (!success);

Presence of duplicate rows will not be treated as an error condition in this context and system must function normally without aborting the whole transaction (This is what PostgreSQL is doing currently after first failure I get 25P02 and all other inserts are ignored completely). I get following error:

This is the case with Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL and I think this is a fair expectation. I am sure this is fairly common scenario with people who do frequent backend coding.
