HI Swati, 


From the Salesforce docs:


Certain records cannot be updated via the API. To update a record via the update() call, its object must be configured as

updateable (updateable is true). To determine whether an object can be updated, your client application can invoke the

describeSObjects() call on the object and inspect its updateable property.
Link:

You can try checking if this object can be updateable.

Also See the update call,

For java see https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Introduction_to_the_Force.com_Web_Services_Connector . The examples are clear and the [process is simple.

For Python see SQLForcee at http://www.capstorm.com/main/index.php?option=com_content&view=section&layout=blog&id=7&Itemid=62
It's free, works with Python 2.7 and 3.*, and will do the work in 3 lines of code.
