Package javax.sql.rowset

Standard interfaces and base classes for JDBC RowSet implementations.


Interface Summary
CachedRowSet The interface that all standard implementations of CachedRowSet must implement.
FilteredRowSet The standard interface that all standard implementations of FilteredRowSet must implement.
JdbcRowSet The standard interface that all standard implementations of JdbcRowSet must implement.
Joinable 1.0 Background
JoinRowSet The JoinRowSet interface provides a mechanism for combining related data from different RowSet objects into one JoinRowSet object, which represents an SQL JOIN.
Predicate The standard interface that provides the framework for all FilteredRowSet objects to describe their filters.
WebRowSet The standard interface that all implementations of a WebRowSet must implement.

Class Summary
BaseRowSet An abstract class providing a RowSet object with its basic functionality.
RowSetMetaDataImpl Provides implementations for the methods that set and get metadata information about a RowSet object's columns.

Exception Summary
RowSetWarning An extension of SQLException that provides information about database warnings set on RowSet objects.

Package javax.sql.rowset Description

Standard interfaces and base classes for JDBC RowSet implementations. This package contains interfaces and classes that a standard RowSet implementation either implements or extends.

Table of Contents

1.0 Package Specification

This package specifies five standard JDBC RowSet interfaces. All five extend the RowSet interface described in the JDBC 3.0 specification. It is anticipated that additional definitions of more specialized JDBC RowSet types will emerge as this technology matures. Future definitions should be specified as subinterfaces using inheritance similar to the way it is used in this specification.

Note: The interface definitions provided in this package form the basis for all compliant JDBC RowSet implementations. Vendors and more advanced developers who intend to provide their own compliant RowSet implementations should pay particular attention to the assertions detailed in specification interfaces.

2.0 Standard RowSet Definitions

3.0 Implementer's Guide

Compliant implementations of JDBC RowSet Implementations must follow the assertions described in this specification. In accordance with the terms of the Java Community Process, a Test Compatibility Kit (TCK) can be licensed to ensure compatibility with the specification. The following paragraphs outline a number of starting points for implementers of the standard JDBC RowSet definitions. Implementers should also consult the Implementer's Guide in the javax.sql.rowset.spi package for guidelines on SyncProvider implementations.
