B.1. Oracle SQLJ Translator

The Oracle SQLJ translator, sqlj, translates a SQLJ file to a Java source file (with an extension of .java) and then compiles that Java source file into a Java class file (with an extension of .class). You invoke sqlj from the command line using the following syntax:

sqlj [option_list] file_list

The syntax elements are as follows:

option_list

A list of options separated by space characters. See Table B-1 for a list of valid options.

file_list

The list of files that you wish to translate and compile. You must separate the filenames in the list using spaces.

Table B-1 lists the sqlj command-line options, along with their descriptions and default values. The flags are case-insensitive; for example, to use the -cache flag you can specify the following: -cache=false. After the table, I show some examples of sqlj invocations.

Table B-1. sqlj options
Option Description Default value
-cache Enables caching of the results of online semantics checking. This is a TRUE/FALSE flag. False
-checkfilename Indicates whether a warning is to be displayed when a source file name does not correspond to the name of the public class defined within that source file. This is a TRUE/FALSE flag. True
-checksource Enables SQLJ type resolution, which causes SQLJ to examine source files in addition to class files. This is a TRUE/FALSE flag. True
-classpath Specifies the Java CLASSPATH that is to be passed to the JVM and Java compiler. None
-compile Indicates ...
