If you want to fetch for each page then you need to use ORDER BY and ROWNUM. Let's say I join 3 tables emp, dept, loc and I need n rows at a time.
The query would be
You need to bind the values for ROWNUM predicate.
- ROWNUM does not ensure that records are fetched in any particular record. If you fire a query like SELECT * FROM emp WHERE rownum < 10 Oracle does not guarantee you will get same set of 10 row very time. The ORDER BY clause will help to overcome this unpredictable behavior.
