Java – How to get position of an error in Oracle SQL query

java, jdbc, oracle, plsql

How can I get position of an error in the query?

I need to get position in a query string which causes an error, like sqlplus does it:

SQL> insert into tbl (data) values('12345')  2  /insert into tbl (data) values('12345')                 *ERROR at line 1:ORA-12899: value too large for column "schmnm"."tbl"."data" (actual: 5,maximum: 3)

How can I do that?

After some ramblings when I almost lost hope, I found (thanks to correct search string in Google) following link: https://forums.oracle.com/thread/1000551
