The project is making inserts (or any sort of SQL update) into an application database, but not all of the inserts are going through properly, yet there are no errors reported.

After enabling JDBC tracing on the Oracle driver (see below how this was done), in the Oracle Trace logs we see the following:

26791174|12/14/2010 10:01:15 AM|0|0|UNKNOWN|insert into "CITRECOVERY"."CIT_TRACKING"("ACCOUNT_ID","TO_IA","RECEIVED","SEND_COUNT","CU_RETURN_CODE","CU_ERROR_MESSAGE","END_DATE","STATUS") values ('14-12-2010 10:01:14','4',TO_DATE('14-DEC-10', 'DD-MON-RR'),'0',NULL,NULL,NULL,'TEST');
26791187|12/14/2010 10:01:15 AM|0|0|UNKNOWN|commit;
26791188|12/14/2010 10:01:15 AM|0|0|UNKNOWN|
26791188|12/14/2010 10:01:15 AM|0|0|UNKNOWN|delete from "CITRECOVERY"."CIT_TRACKING" where ROWID = 'AAASsOAANAAAACFAAC';
26791189|12/14/2010 10:01:15 AM|0|0|UNKNOWN|rollback;
26791190|12/14/2010 10:01:15 AM|0|0|UNKNOWN|set transaction read write;

As you can see the application performed an insert, but it did not specifically perform a delete by rowid.  So it seems the driver is deleting the row right after it has been inserted.

Here is how to enable the tracing:

Here is the documentation on how to do it:

I've tested this before by using the tracing jars, the ones with the _g in the filename, downloadable from the oracle website:

you would have to replace the current jar with a trace jar.

Then create a file called

java.util.logging.FileHandler.pattern = jdbc.log
java.util.logging.FileHandler.count = 1
java.util.logging.FileHandler.formatter = java.util.logging.SimpleFormatter

add the following properties to the JVM:


and then restart the jvm and search for the file jdbc.log that it should create which should log all of the insertsl.
