I use jdbc to connect to Oracle 8.1.5 database. In my program,
I have a sentence:
CallableStatement cstmta=conna.prepareCall("begin selectall(?); end;");
It use a callablestatement to call a stored procedure-selectall.
The procedure selectall is:
create or replace procedure
selectall (allrow OUT employee_types%ROWTYPE)
begin select * into allrow from employee_types;
employee_types is a table in database.
My question are:
1)how could I associate datatype with the OUT parameter of the stored procedure? What will be xxxx in
2)how could I retrieve a Resultset from the CallableStatement?

You can try
ResultSet rs = (ResultSet)cstmta.getObject(1);
Hope this helps.

Dear Madhira.
I've just crawled through a page that answers your (and also my) problem with Procedures that returns//accept rowTypes.
I attach you the part that worths:
(taken from Akadia)

Stored Function with Record Set
The PL/SQL package java_demo defines the procedure list_emp(), using the IN parameter p_job and the result parameter as ResultSet, analogous to the attributes of the table EMP (schema scott/tiger). The ResultSet contains all the employees matching the defined job.

This example shows the easy and smart way how to open and to use a cursor defined in
the PL/SQL package. Important in this case is the definition of the public cursor type:
FUNCTION list_emp(p_job VARCHAR2) RETURN myreftype;

But why wouldn't the example work where Types.other and casting it as a resultset using (ResultSet) getObject(1) work??? Do you HAVE to use OracleTypes.CURSOR? Thanks

is there a possibility to return only first three rows in the cursor. Looks like in the above example the entire cursor is returned.
I agree. Here's the link:
