Hi all...
I am new to WSAD and iam doing a project. I have to retrieve the total no of records from a particular table.Do i have to use the find methods or select methods? I think i have to use find methods,b'se if i use select methods,i cannot access them from my client - JSPs.Am i correct?
Iam using Collection as the return type for my find problem is that iam getting records,but they are being displayed as various symbols,numbers - as objects even though i typecast or use toString method to display them in string format.
And another question is, once i retreive a record, how to display the various fields? For this do i have to change my return type as the EJBObject so that i can use the get or set methods? Please help me as soon as possible as i have to submit my project soon.
Thank You.

Hello Radha,
The result is returned as a collection of entity beans for you. You have to type cast it as a type of your Remote object.
And then, using this remote object you can get the details about this entity bean.
To find the number of records returned, you can just use the size method of the collection.
Beauty is in the eye of the tiny ad.
