I (almost) never used JDeveloper. But, honestly, I see no reason for doing that for plain JDBC code. On the other side, when using a persistence framework, influencing the use of bind variables can be useful.

From the JDBC API point-of-view I see only one possibility. The SQL statement is executed through the class Statement instead of PreparedStatement. If you have access to the code, I would have a look to the snippet that executes one of the failing SQL statements.
