I'm doing following simple SQL using JDBC. I need to retrieve the
return message "2 rows deleted". Could anyone tell me which
JDBC API I can use? Thanks.

SQL> delete from family_member where first_name='ann';

2 rows deleted.

Jane,
If you call it using executeUpdate(), the method returns an integer (in your case 2.) Your code knows that it is performing a delete and can form an appropriate message.
