How to construct an insert query in JPA

I am trying to insert data into a table having columns (NAME, VALUE) with

Query query = em.createQuery("INSERT INTO TestDataEntity (NAME, VALUE) VALUES (:name, :value)");
query.setParameter("name", name);
query.setParameter("value", value);
query.executeUpdate();


and getting the following exception:

ERROR org.hibernate.hql.internal.ast.ErrorCounter - line 1:42: unexpected token: VALUES


Also, I cannot insert a record using a native query either:

Query query = em.createNativeQuery("INSERT INTO TEST_DATA (NAME, VALUE) VALUES (:name, :value);");
query.setParameter("name", name);
query.setParameter("value", value);
query.executeUpdate();


Another exception is being thrown:

javax.persistence.PersistenceException: org.hibernate.exception.SQLGrammarException: could not execute statement


The question is:


  • What is wrong with the query string?



Many thanks.

I solved the issue.

According to this,

There is no INSERT statement in JPA.

But I could solve the issue with native query: I have mistakenly put a redundant ; at the end of the query, so the issue solved by removing it.
