Subject Re: LABEL ON functionality in Derby?
Date Thu, 20 Jan 2005 17:25:23 GMT
Hi Rajesh,

I was afraid Derby wouldn't have a way to set these
values on the table itself.  Your code snippet gives
me an idea of how I might fake the functionality to a
caller of a wrapper class though.  Thanks again for
the reply!
