hi:
Where does the returned ResultSet reside? After a SQL statement executed and a ResultSet is returned, is it still in the dbms, or it is brought to the application server memory?
If it resides in the memory, why it is gone after the statemet created it is closed?
If it reside on the dbms, how can I bring it to the memory?
thanks

Hannah,
A regular result set resides in memory on the application server. I think there are some settings where you can get it to only load the first X rows and go back to the database to get more. But by default, it's all in memory.

Thanks for your replay. If the ResultSet lives in the application memory, why it is gone when the connection, or the statement created are closed? and how can I bring to the memory a part of the result set?
thanks

Hannah,
You can loop through the result set and put the rows in your own data structure. An ArrayList is common for this sort of thing.

hi:
I know I can user transfer objects to store my data from the ResultSet, but when the ResultSet is huge, it will takes up a lot of memory. I know there is another solution, is to user RowSet, but I am using SQL2k, and it doesn't support RowSet.
any other suggestions.

Hanna,
What are you doing with the data after you have it? Is it something you can do while the resultset is open? For example if you are writing to a file, you can do that as you loop through the result set.
