Error description

  • NullPointerException appears when IN parameter has not been set.
    
    
    Problem:
    
    When an "In" parameter are missing in a java code (e.g in a
    "SELECT"- clause)  the Informix JDBC driver version 3.50.JC7 and
    JDBC 3.70.JC1 throw an exception:
    "java.sql.SQLException: System or internal error
    java.lang.NullPointerException"
    
    
    
    The older JDBC driver 3.50.JC1 does not display the
    NullPoniterException but displays this more useful exception:
    " java.sql.SQLException: IN parameter has not been set."
