ResultSet Concatenation?

Posted on 2002-03-28

The $epoch_starttime and $epoch_endtime in the following query are variables.  I need to generate a ResultSet object from each of the following tables and add the results together into one ResultSet object.  

The reason for this is I am working with a third party software and they can only accept one recordset object for processing(charting software).  Is it possible to concatenate results from one ResultSet object onto another?  If not, how could I go about addressing this problem?

Tables
m2002_01, m2002_02, m2003_03

Query Example
Select Server as Server_name, Browser as Browser_name where starttime > $epoch_starttime and endtime < $epoch_endtime.

Select Server as Server_name, Browser as Browser_name
from m2002_01
where starttime > $epoch_starttime and endtime < $epoch_endtime

union

Select Server as Server_name, Browser as Browser_name
from m2002_02

I wish this solution would work but mySQL doesn't support the union command.

If you can upgrade to mySQL 4.0.0, then it has been implemented.

http://www.mysql.com/doc/U/N/UNION.html

If not, then I recommend a temporary table...

Use:

create temporary table temp_m2002
 ( server_name varchar(20), browser_name varchar(20));

insert into temp_m2002 ( server_name, browser_name)
select server as server_name , browser as browser_name
from m2002_01 where starttime > $epoch_starttime and endtime
< $epoch_endtime;

insert into temp_m2002 ( server_name, browser_name)
select server as server_name , browser as browser_name
from m2002_02 where starttime > $epoch_starttime and endtime
< $epoch_endtime;

insert into temp_m2002 ( server_name, browser_name)
select server as server_name , browser as browser_name
from m2002_03 where starttime > $epoch_starttime and endtime
< $epoch_endtime;

select * from temp_m2002 ;

The select will return the one big result set, containing all selected rows.  When the session is closed, the temporary table will drop automatically.

One approach is to have a disconnected result set(your own implementation of IResultSet)which has a method to merge the 2 resultsets. For a implementation of ResultSet check  - http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/javaserverpages/cachedrowset/
