The difference between the 7.4 driver and the 8.0.3 driver is the 8.0.3 driver is using server side prepared statements and binding the parameter to the type in setXXX(n,val).

The 7.4 driver just replaces the ? with the value and doesn't use server side prepared statements.

I have an interesting problem with the JDBC drivers. When I use a select like this:

"SELECT t0.aktiv,, t0.ist_teilnehmer, t0.nachname, t0.plz, t0.vorname FROM public.dga_dienstleister t0 WHERE t0.plz like ?::varchar(256) ESCAPE '|'" withBindings: 1:"53111"(plz)>

the existing index on the plz column is not used.

When I the same select with a concrete value, the index IS used.

I use PostgreSQL 8.0.3 on Mac OS X and the JDBC driver 8.0-312 JDBC 3.

After a lot of other things, I tried using a 7.4 driver and with this, the index is used in both cases.

Why can this happen? Is there a setting I might have not seen? Something I do wrong?
