Hi all,
My database client is retrieving rows from some tables of a given database periodically. The database client should retrieve at each time only new inserted rows or rows modified since last retrieval.
A priori, tables don't contain any timestamp column, and I can't modify the tables since the database is developed, managed and administered by a different company.
Does anybody know about some JDBC call that allows getting some metadata about rows or any other solution that would help.
