Hi Friends

Is is possible to get the number of rows from oracle table with out using ResultSet rst .next() method .

No. But that is because you can't do anything with any ResultSet without first moving the cursor to a row. However, you can use a query to find out how many rows a query will return without having to iterate through the whole query ResultSet by using the count SQL function.

You can use select count(*) as my_count from table_name to get the number of row count from a table.

rs.getInt("my_count") will return you number of rows..
