How to run Oracle "Describe table" statement from R program (via RJDBC)

I could successfully connect to Oracle server via RJDBC.

But when I tried to use Oracle's "describe mychema.mytable" to list a table's column names by function "dbGetQuery", I got error message below:

JDBC ERROR: ORA-00900: invalid SQL statement
Statement: describe myschema.mytable

Anyone know how to do it correctly ?

Thanks in advance,

Any people has an idea ? Thanks !
