If you want to get 50000 records and want to write in txt file one by one using some specified format, what will the best approach using JDBC.

Ofcause! at your service!

Did you consider to ask this in another forum? anyways.. do you know how to
a) get 50000 records from a DB using JDBC. If not, im sure you can find the
answer in one of your Java books or in an online tutorial.

b) write to a text file? if not, again - try to consult a book or

Hi all !

This is not at all the right forum.
Anyway it should be SQL feature "Fetch Size" through JDBC's "ResultSet.setFetchSize(rows)".

Please consult "Best practices to improve performance in JDBC" at :

Optimization with ResultSet
1. Do batch retrieval using ResultSet
ResultSet interface also provides batch retrieval facility like Statement as mentioned above. It overrides the Statement behaviour.
Initially find the default size by using
ResultSet.getFetchSize(); and then set the size as per requirement
This feature significantly improves performance when you are dealing with retrieval of large number of rows like search functionality.

Best regards.

Use MultiThreading and launch multiple threads doing reading from db and writing to a file simultaneously. Make sure u index the records properly.and You can also use Batch statements in JDBC to gain higher performance.

Thanks friends.

So If I use setFetchSize(50000); then its means its fetching the DB at once and return everything into resultSet. It will redurce the network calls. or should i use 1000 instead of 50000 because transfering 50000 data at a time is also not good. I think 5000 will be better.

1. Now threading I was thinking of making synchronized instead. because when you say multithreading do u mean to say inside {} loop I have to use threading , I want to write data squentially in a file as i get in from database.
I agree. Here's the link:
