Yes, once we get to disconnected objects, like RowSets, it all gets

It could be a flat file, or a spreadsheet, or created dynamically like a
collection. But most often it would be a DBMS. 

My real question was where you were going to add these to the framework.
As a toplevel package, like "org.apache.stuts.pager"?

I think in the pre-1.0 era, we might have put this into the util
package, but now that we're moving all that off the commons, I wasn't
sure where this would fit in. 

The RowSet taglib also has since nice formatting features for basic
column retrieval. I just keep wondering if there's a way to put all this
together into something that could standalone, either in contrib or the

After all, the first thing I'm going to want to do is page through a
RowSet ... and those dbTag guys would probably like to page through a
result set as well. So the pager package would seem to have at least
sequential cohesion with the dbTags.
