import java.sql.*;
//import oracle.jdbc.*;

public class dbTest

conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc dbc:images",username,password);
stmt = conn.createStatement(ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE, //Create a statement object so that we can submit
ResultSet.CONCUR_UPDATABLE); //SQL statements to the driver
//ResultSet rs = null;
String query = "SELECT idx FROM images where idx = 48046"; //SQL statement
ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery(query); //Execute SQL statement


while(rs.next())
{
String photo = rs.getString(1);
int ccount = rs.getMetaData().getColumnCount();

You are trying to access columns of your result set that don't exist. That's what that error actually means.

I am not sure about your looping through the metadata part but this



Is certainly wrong. You only have one column in your result set.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
