In my database, the type of the field "GreenXY" is Text. So the following code is wrong -- Can't convert java.lang.String to bollean. Can you tell me how to correct it?

ckbGreen.setState( rs.getString("GreenXY"));

Assuming that GreenXY holds "TRUE" and "FALSE":

String s = rs.getString("GreenXY");
ckbGree.setState( s.equals("TRUE") );

the equals() method returns a boolean value.
