Subject Re: [OFF-TOPIC] RE: can resultset object be re-used
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2003 14:17:11 GMT
thanks for response Yoav,

i knew message was off topic, but did not realize that such messages should
be marked such.  Thanks for informing me.

your answer to my question is what i would have guessed, but cannot find
anything to that effect in Java Docs on ResultSet interface.

to complicate the matter, i have some code as follows, which works fine
(which is why i posted question in first place, because i would have guessed
what you said):

for (i=0; i < parentTable.size(); i++) {

// note: this stmt executed repeatedly in for loop

rset4 = stmt.executeQuery ("select field1, field2, fieldN from
schema.tblsubj3 where field4 = " + parentTable.get(i) + " order by field1");

if ( {


Note that the ResultSet interface, rset4, is re-used repeatedly for changing
values in the array "parentTable", altering only the value for the WHERE
condition in each iteration of the loop.


rset4 is initialized outside the try-catch block as follows:
ResultSet rset4 = null;

the array parentTable is initialized as follows:

ArrayList parentTable = new ArrayList();

I am not asking a question this time round.   Just thought i would share
this info.  Also wondering if this use of ResultSet could generate
un-reliable results.
