INSERT statement results in extra network roundtrip with SELECT statement

mmagan-Oracle Member Posts: 30 Employee

Using jdbc ojdbc8_g with a Groovy script.

If I execute an insert statement with bind variables, then I see this in the jdbc log (as expected):

Aug 01, 2020 9:08:32 AM oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleStatement logSQL

CONFIG: 16AED49F SQL: INSERT INTO Author (firstname, lastname) VALUES (?, ?)

However, I noticed (using Wireshark) that two network roundtrips were being performed. One for the INSERT, and then another with a SELECT statement: SELECT firstname,lastname FROM Author

If I set the JDBC logging level to FINEST then I also see the select statement.

  • What is the purpose of this statement?
  • How can this extra network roundtrip be avoided?

    The SQL log message should include the stack trace that is executing the SQL. That should point you in the right direction. There's no way I can think of that the JDBC driver would do this so what you are seeing is caused by some layer on top of JDBC.

    Edited to ask: Are you using a scroll sensitive result set or a scrollable/updateable result set of any kind?
