Is there a method in the JDBC ResultSet interface that can get the number of columns returned from a query?
Apologies if this question has been asked before...

Oops -> found the answer to my question. ResultSetMetaData interface provides a getColumnCount() method.
Ironically enough I found the solution by googling and looking at how .NET data access works. Very similar to Java.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
