I was wondering what the common ways to store the results of a JDBC query were. I have recently migrated from Perl, and am used to storing the results in a hash. Is there a similar data structure that can easily handle the results of the query. I have tried HashMap, but cant figure out how to get a key to map to another HashMap internally without explicitly creating the internal HashMaps first.
E.g. The query is something like this: select animal, type, name from animals;
and the result set is:
Animal Type Name dog husky Bella dog poodle Alfie cat manc Gus
Alternatively, is there some better way to store the results rather than trying to duplicate Perl hashes?
Thank you Shailan

To clarify (the formatting got messed up)
I want the data structure to have:
1) 2 top level keys - dog and cat 2) the 'dog' key pointing to another HashMap which itself has 2 keys - husky and poodle, with the value for husky being Bella and the value for poodle, Alfie 3) the cat key having a value Gus
Sorry to belabor the point, but the graphical representation i tried to give was not clear. It looked like I wanted to make poodle a top level key, which is not the case
Shailan, please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place. Please continue any discussion of this topic here in the JDBC forum.
