Updateable ResultSet

By using the methods to update an "updateable ResultSet", are you modifying the backend database or just the ResultSet itself? IOW, does the "Updateable" ResultSet modify the database itself or do I still need to do that using an SQL update stmt?

Thanks for anyone's answer to this (basic) question. <s>

Thanks again very much.

Both. The result set objects are updated first, then you can commit the changes to the database with updateRow().

Thanks. I guess I was just used to using SQL to to updates. <s>

Sounds great.
