Hi, I want to pass a ResultSet (Query for MySQL) from my java-file to my jsp. And then loop (While rs.Next()) in my jsp-file. Is that possible? I manage to print it out in my console from java-file. Im looking for the shortest way to print it out in HTML.

Exactly what is your "java-file" A stand alone application, a servlet, a JavaBean???

Well its a stand alone i guess. I import it in the beginning of the jsp-file. like an package (<%@ page import = "gbook.*" %> . The code looks like this right now.
So instead of having a void method I would like to have a method returning an ResultSet. So i can deal with the RS in the jsp-file.
You dig?

You can pass a ResultSet to the jsp with any method i.e.
public ResultSet getResultSet() throws SQLException
However the jsp will have to close the connection. ResultSets can't be returned from EJBs either. RowSets don't have this problem.
You can also use my ResultSetConverter object that converts a ResultSet to a 2 dim array (Object[][]). This also is detached from the db connection and so you don't have to close it. See this and more at http://www.fdsapi.com. The FormattedDataSet also has methods to convert a ResultSet into HTML with very little code.
