ASP command change to Java Command

I am translating a ASP Program to Java Program

What Java commands that I need to use to replace the following ASP commands:

isnumeric()
isDate()
formatNumber()
left()
right()
ASC()
HexChar()
Chr()

Also, How can I find out the java commands about retrieving the field name and defined size of the field from a recordset by using field index in Java Command?

In ASP, field name can be obtained from :
rstemp.fields(i).name

In ASP, defined size of the field can be obtained from :
rstemp.fields(i).definedsize

isnumeric()
isDate()
-----------
For these, you'll hafta do as suggested above...write a quick method or code block that'll try converting and return false if an exception is thrown.

formatNumber()
--------------
I'm not sure what this guy is supposed to do.

left()
right()
-------
For these two, just use substring().  Or write something similar to the following:

public static String left(String s, int spaces) {
   return s.substring(0, spaces);
}

public static String right(String s, int spaces) {
   return s.substring(s.length()-spaces, s.length());
}

ASC()
Chr()
-----

The ASCII character set still uses 0-255, so you're free to convert between chars and ints if you like.  Uhh...I forget which returns what, so maybe I'll have this backwards.

public static char Chr(int asc) {
   return (char)asc;
}

public static String sChr(int asc) {
   return String.valueOf((char)asc);
}

public static int Asc(char chr) {
   return (int)chr;
}

public static int Asc(String chr) {
   return Integer.valueOf(chr).intValue();
}

HexChar()
---------
I'm not sure what this guy does either, but Java converts between decimal and hex notation pretty easily.

The following data access examples use a JDBC ResultSet interface (the ADO equivalent of a RecordSet).  The info you're looking for comes from the ResultSetMetaData interface. (rs.getMetaData())

rstemp.fields(i).name
---------------------
rstemp.getMetaData().getColumnName();

rstemp.fields(i).definedsize
----------------------------
rstemp.getMetaData().getColumnDisplaySize();

For more info on all of this stuff, view the Java API at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/api/index.html

Your String related info will be under the 'java.lang' package.  Your JDBC info will be under 'java.sql'.

Hope this helps!

oops, my bad...it shoulda been:

rstemp.fields(i).name
---------------------
rstemp.getMetaData().getColumnName(i);

rstemp.fields(i).definedsize
----------------------------
rstemp.getMetaData().getColumnDisplaySize(i);

I forgot to supply the column index parameter.
