    When looking at the results of a JEE/SQL analysis with regard to the Quality Rule "Avoid using SQL queries inside a loop" (7424).Violations are expected for the class simpleJDBCTemplate, but none are reported (false negative). This is due to:

- The Spring Framework 3.0 does not have the parametrized method update for org.springframework.jdbc.core.simple.SimpleJdbcTemplate.update. So, the Inference Engine is not able to identify the SQL queries.
- The query is defined in a static field and so, the method write is not considered as a SQL Artifact which is the scope of this Quality rule.
