JDBC result set - best way to store results?

Hi

I was wondering what the common ways to store the results of a JDBC query were. I have recently migrated from Perl, and am used to storing the results in a hash. Is there a similar data structure that can easily handle the results of the query. I have tried HashMap, but cant figure out how to get a key to map to another HashMap internally without explicitly creating the internal HashMaps first.

E.g.
The query is something like this:
select animal, type, name from animals;

and the result set is:

Animal Type Name
dog husky Bella
dog poodle Alfie
cat manc Gus

I want the data structure to look like this:

dog => husky => Bella
poodle => Alfie
cat => manc => Gus


Alternatively, is there some better way to store the results rather than trying to duplicate Perl hashes?

Thank you
Shailan

To clarify (the formatting got messed up)

I want the data structure to have:

1) 2 top level keys - dog and cat
2) the 'dog' key pointing to another HashMap which itself has 2 keys - husky and poodle, with the value for husky being Bella and the value for poodle, Alfie
3) the cat key having a value Gus

Sorry to belabor the point, but the graphical representation i tried to give was not clear. It looked like I wanted to make poodle a top level key, which is not the case

Thanks
Shailan

Shailan, please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place. Please continue any discussion of this topic here in the JDBC forum.
