I know that I can use method next()to browse forward the resultSet.  However, I want to know how can I browse backward in the resultSet. I use Java 1.1, so I can't use the new method suggested in Java 1.2. Can anyone tell me how to implement the backward browsing and give me the implemention?

you can "browse" the result set only forward.
quote
" A ResultSet provides access to a table of data generated by executing a Statement. The table rows are retrieved in sequence. Within a row its column values can be accessed in any order. "

if you need to access some rows more then once, you'll have to make a copy (cache them)

Vector rows = new Vector();
Vector curRow;
Object elem;

while (resultSet.next())
{
  curRow = new Vector();
  elem = resulSet.getObject(1);
  curRow.addElement(elem);
  elem = resulSet.getObject(2);
  curRow.addElement(elem);
  elem = resulSet.getObject(3);
  curRow.addElement(elem);
// ....
// now curRow has a copy of all objects from the current row of the result set
  rows.addElement(CurRow);
}


now you have all the information from the resultSet cached in the rows vector
if you need field 2 of the third row, you use

Object o - (Vector)(rows.elementAt(3)).elementAt(2);

hope this helps
