Iterate through columns in tables.

Hi guys,

I'm a bit stuck here, I'm not that comfortable with SQL and would like to get a push into the right direction.

What I'm trying to do is, compare Java fields via reflection to those in an Oracle DB.

The reflection part isn't the problem though..

How will I go about it to get a table with a given name and loop through all the columns/fields inside the specified table?

Thanks in advance.
