I want to find out if the WCS community out there has used ServerJDBCHelperAccessBean() calls in their code. Is it a preferred method to employ this class to make some quick data retrievals from the DB? Specifically, I am looking for answers if this is a widely used method to fetch data from the database, or if there's an alternate method used. Moreover, what is IBM's stand on the next releases of this class? Would anyone know if this class will be deprecated in the future? Does IBM recomend the use of this class to begin with?
Some questions I could use answers on are:
- Are there any special considerations around use of ServerJDBC...when it comes to making DB updates?
- What about the use of the flush() method?
- What situations or exceptions does one commonly run into?
We use it extensively in our implementation and have run into no problems. But my team wants to be aware of any downstream impact on the use of this with newer releases. Will code migration become an issue?
Thoughts and experienes of users who have used this command are greatly appreciated.
