Request a query in oracle on how to convert rows into columns?

Reason being consider below example:

Table A:

Colunms: name, id
Values: john,1

table B:
Columns:id,roll no

Now the result displayed should be as below;
name name name rollno rollno rollno
John Shan Jimmy 23 24 25

Request your help.

While there may be some clever ways to do it in SQL, I don't think it should be done this way. You should save the records to local objects and transpose the columns and rows locally. This is a presentation issue and has nothing to do with JDBC.
