Hi Everyone,
I have query regarding how jdbc fetches the rows from the database. For exmaple i have a table say item in the database that contains the 1000 records and i want to retrieve these records through JDBC so code is

/*************** Dummy Code *****************************/
Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url,login,pass);
Statement stmt = conn.getStatement();
stmt.setFetchSize(100);
ResultSet rtst = stmt.executeQuery("Select * from item ");
/*********************************************************/

Now the question is that i have 1000 records in the item table and fetch value is 100(which means that 100 rows to be fetched at a time from the datbase ). So how the remaining rows cames in the memory ?

I am unable to understand how JDBC concept works as we have only call executeQuery() in the code

Thanks in advanced for your prompt answer

Maneesh,
When you call rs.next() the driver takes care of this. If there are rows cached in memory, it gives you the next row from there. When it runs out of rows in memory it gets the next X rows, stores them in memory and returns you the first one.
