Sun Implementation of JdbcRowSet API

This section provides a tutotial example on how to access the reference implementatoin of JdbcRowSet API provided by Sun Microsystems.

The reference implementation of JdbcRowSet API was provided by Sun Microsystems. If you are using JDK 1.6, you need to download and install the Sun implementation JAR file. But since JDK 1.7, the Sun implementation is included in the JDK package now as the default implementation.

To access the Sun implementation, you can use methods from the RowSetProvider class and the RowSetFactory class:

// Creating an instance of the default RowSetFactory implementation
   RowSetFactory f = RowSetProvider.newFactory();

// Creating an instance of JdbcRowSet from the factory
   JdbcRowSet s = f.createJdbcRowSet();

Here is a tutorial program that shows how to create a JdbcRowSet object with the Sun default implementation:

import java.sql.*;;
import javax.sql.rowset.RowSetProvider;
import javax.sql.rowset.RowSetFactory;
import javax.sql.rowset.JdbcRowSet;
public class MySqlRowSetFactory {
  public static void main(String [] args) {
    try {
      RowSetFactory f = RowSetProvider.newFactory();
      JdbcRowSet s = f.createJdbcRowSet();
      System.out.println("RowSetFactory: "+f.getClass().getName());
      System.out.println("JdbcRowSet: "+s.getClass().getName());
    } catch (Exception e) {
      System.err.println("Exception: "+e.getMessage());

Compile and run it with JDK 1.8, you will get the following output:


C:\herong>\Progra~1\java\jdk1.8.0_45\bin\java MySqlRowSetFactory
RowSetFactory: com.sun.rowset.RowSetFactoryImpl
JdbcRowSet: com.sun.rowset.JdbcRowSetImpl

The output confirms that Sun implementation of JdbcRowSet API is the default implementation.
