it was a typo
everything works now, problem was my actual query/update code
lacked a space after table name and the where, i.e.
"SELECT a FROM " + table_name +
"WHERE ... etc."
because of the way I had laid out my code the missing space
didn't jump out at me and the sql exception message wasn't clear
When I jumped over to MS SQL Server and Sprinta and the
problem didn't go away I knew it was in my court and dug out the typo.
Another (my bug) problem came in when I jumped from Statement to
PreparedStatement but didn't drop the query from the executeUpdate(query)
and SQL reported a parse error on "". Once I pulled the query
from the method call with PreparedStatement everything worked
like a champ.
All is well now.
