hi all,

im new to jdbc and tried my first app using netbeans 5.5. my db is apache derby. i have correctly set up the driver and populated some tables. but when i write the neccessary code in my jsp to retrieve information through the DB no data is being displyed. following is my jsp code
<% InitialContext context = new InitialContext();
DataSource dataSource=(DataSource)context.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/DataSourceExample");
Connection conn = null;
Statement stmt = null;
ResultSet rset = null;
rset=stmt.excuteQuery("select * from TRAVEL.CARRENTAL");
<%= rset.getString("TRIPID")) %>

<% }
catch(SQLException e){}%>
<% finally{
if(rset !=null){rset.close();}
if(stmt !=null){stmt.close();}
if(conn !=null){conn.close();}
if(context !=null){context.close();}


can some one please point out to me as to what im doing wrong?

thank you in advance

if who i am is what i have, and what i have is lost, then who am i?<br /> <br />SCJP 5.0<br />SCWCD 1.4<br />SCBCD preparing

You don't seem to be moving though your ResultSet. I'd expect this sort of logic when using a ResultSet:
