Subject OT: Re: List rows in a table using Beans instead of Recordset
Date Wed, 04 Jun 2003 01:46:52 GMT
This is OT for a frame  work, consider posting JDBC questions on or SQL SIGs, but...

Most people that use framework like Struts, use a DAO (like iBatis ... 
or Hibreante) and do not code at ResultSet level, else we would be using 
a servlet and not a framework.
Struts provides nothing for a DAO, a very nice feature, so you can pick 
anything you like (but picking nothing is not ideal). Look at above 2 
for starters.

For offsetting I use SELECT .... LIMIT 10 OFFSET 1, using a SQL command 
at the DAO level. From Struts you just want to track which OFFSET to 
pass to DAO.
(Yes, most DAOs do caching and flushing automatically). Also OT, using 
cursors is a bad SQL practice, but any SQL list will tell you that.
