jdbc cancel query

Hello :
is there a way to cancel a SQL query that takes long time to get the results
set in JDBC. Basically once a query is submitted
a prorgess bar or progress moniter should
display,which gives the user a chance to cancel.
Once cancelled the program control comes back
Any ideas, suggestion

Hi Selvan tiru,
If you had taken a look to the Statement Interface methods, you would have found that the method cancel(), answers exactly your question. This method assumes that both the driver and the database server support this operation.
Now if you are using a stored procedure to execute your query, you can still use the cancel() method since the CallableStatement and the PreparedStatement are both derived from the Statement Interface.
