While executing the Pure SQL option with a DB Adapter, a dynamic parameter is attempted to be passed as an input, however, the parameter is not getting assigned to the input as expected but rather the '?' character is being assigned. The following error is generated during runtime.

Pure SQL Exception.
Pure SQL Execute of SELECT
... // truncated SQL statement
Caused by java.sql.SQLException: Invalid column index.
The Pure SQL option is for border use cases only and provides simple yet minimal functionality. Possibly try the "Perform an operation on a table" option instead. This exception is considered not retriable, likely due to a modeling mistake. To classify it as retriable instead add property nonRetriableErrorCodes with value "-17003" to your deployment descriptor (i.e. weblogic-ra.xml). To auto retry a retriable fault set these composite.xml properties for this invoke: jca.retry.interval, jca.retry.count, and jca.retry.backoff. All properties are integers.
