Subject Paging Lance: Closing result sets on exception
Date Wed, 08 Feb 2006 20:10:29 GMT
Hi, all (and especially Lance).  I just ran this test:

- Create a statement that is scrollabe and read-only
- Execute a select on the statement
- Attempt to update the row, catch the exception
- Call rs.beforeFirst().  Looking at the embedded code, if the result 
set is closed, this should cause an exception saying the result set is 

My test indicates that the result set is not closed, independent of 
whether it is holdable or not.  But this makes sense.  What database 
would want to close a result set just because someone tries to update it?

That said, I am trying to answer the question to the new metadata call


where the javadoc states

"Retrieves whether a SQLException while autoCommit is true inidcates 
that all open ResultSets are closed, even ones that are holdable. When a 
SQLException occurs while autocommit is true, it is vendor specific 
whether the JDBC driver responds with a commit operation, a rollback 
operation, or by doing neither a commit nor a rollback. A potential 
result of this difference is in whether or not holdable ResultSets are 

Based on this javadoc, it looks like our answer should be "false."  But 
is this the correct interpretation?  Is there a better way to test this? 
  I feel like I'm not quite understanding the intention of this metadata
