Hey JDBC !

I made a code something of this sort


For getting updatable result sets

Came to know ! that every other result set like con.createConnection();


My requirement is :

I have to read all the columns in a row one by one and update a column in that row named ROW_STATUS !

Code Snippet

Am not sure of what happens exactly ! behind the scene !

Is JDBC generating queries for updating rows.

AnyHow, to my knowledge a copy of the resultset will be maintained in the JVM.

I think when i say


this local copy is updated !

Only when i say updateRow(); this gets updated to DB!

How come resultset.getString("ROW_STATUS");

immediately would say Y

  • Is that from the DB or from the Local copy maintained in the JVM.
  • If not, is the JDBC, writes queries to retrive the column ROW_STATUS
  • when i say resultset.getString("ROW_STATUS")

  • What Happens Exactly !

    Could someone describe in detail the working of this code !

    Please correct me if am not in the right direction !
