I have a web application implemented im J2EE.On the screen I have a table wherein I display 5 records at a time.At the bottom of the table there is a "Next" button to fetch more records.So how is this "Next" button functionality implemented?Do I get all the records from the database put it in a cache and then keep iterating and keep showing 5 records on screen or everytime "Next" button is hit I go to the database and fetch the next 5 records?

"Katerina" is not a valid display name according to our naming policy. Please change it (hint: you need a last name).
Thank you.
