what you mean in your java application ?
you can create a connection ,
create an statement,
execute the statement ,
get the result set ,
and first column in first row is your record count.

is it what you are looking for ?

You have two choices:

int count = rs.getInt(1);

int count = rs.getInt("maxCount");
