ResultSetMetaData problems

I am having a problem accessing all the functions available to ResultSetMetaData. Specifically, Websphere 5.1 is telling me that "method getColumnName(int) is undefined for the type ResultSetMetaData". Clearly it is defined even in the websphere documentation. Am I missing a plugin or something? I have posted the code below...

metadata = result.getMetaData();
resultMatrix.setColumnCount( metadata.getColumnCount() );
Vector DataRow;
Vector ArrayOfDataRows = new Vector( 1, 1 );

while ( result.next() )
{
resultMatrix.incrementRowCount();

DataRow = new Vector( 1, 1 );
String dataElement;

if( resultMatrix.getColumnCount() > 0) //Did we find any rows?
{
for (int i=1; i<= resultMatrix.getColumnCount(); i++)
{
//------------------------------
// Get the column names
//------------------------------resultMatrix.getArrayOfColumnNames().addElement( new String( metadata.getColumnName(i) ) );
....
I get the error here when trying to compile getColumnName

What is or isn't implemented is down to the JDBC Driver you are using. Check the docs for that.

Thanks, what you said made me think of the solution. The Websphere project I was using this out of contained all the version 5.0 jar's including the JDBC driver. I created a new 5.1.2 web project, moved my code, and now it works.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
