Subject re: Copy and Insert DBRecord (Urgent for me)
Date Fri, 15 Jan 2010 19:42:13 GMT

I know it is tempting to use initRecord() but it has not been designed for doing what you
want to do.
Rather it should be used for modifying existing records.

IMO the right approach is to create a new record and copy all but pk and timestamp columns.
In fact this is similar to what initRecord() does internally.

So basically the layout could be as follows:, conn);
    DBIndex pk = table.getPrimaryKey();
    DBColumn ts = table.getTimestampColumn();
    DBRecord rec = new DBRecord();
    while (reader.moveNext())
        for (DBColumn c : table.getColumns())
        {   // ignore PK and timestamp columns
            if (pk.contains(c) || c==ts)
            // copy other fields
            rec.setValue(c, reader.getValue(c));
