Pagination using java

Hi All,

I have to present a demo of doing pagination of a list and i do not want to use any frame work like display tag. I want to use core java for this, since this will be a very simple demo on pagination.

If any one had done similar thing before, please share the approach/steps to do that.

Any tutorial on net would also be fine.

I'm not providing any code for your 'very simple demo'. I used filterable ListModel implementations in the past. They had two collections of elements:
1) All elements (unfiltered)
2) Filtered elements (subset)
The model then works only with the filtered subset and provides a method applyFilter(...).

To use a similar approach for paging, you could remember the page index (and page size) and create your subset in a method like setPage(...). I see no big obstacles here.

Have a look at the Value List Handler design pattern
