Resultset getter method problem

hi all,
while displaying results using resultset, we generally write the following lines of code:

My question is, suppose there is a big table with 20 columns and I want to show all of them. So instead of showing them using the gettermethod(index1) +gettermethod(index2)+gettermethod(index3)......and so on till 20th column...., can we show the whole row in one shot? Is there any alternative way for this?

Thanking in advance.

Not directly. If you know the number of columns, you could write a form loop so you don't have to type out the logic.

Thanks for replying.
I know I can use getColumnCount() method of ResultsetMetdata interface to know the column number. But then?
I have tried something like this:

But then again, I have to display each column separately within the while loop using the getter methods and the index value of the columns which I don't want. I mean if there are 20/30 columns in a table and if there is a need to print them all then I have to type each of them for 20/30 times using the getter methods.
Is there a way so that I can put the data of a Row inside some Class and print the column values separately?
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
