Hi, I need to perform some checking for my data I key in either it's in the database or not.

I used ResultSet, the wasNull() to do the task. But seems it's not the proper way.

Below is my code, any recommandation?

******************** action2.jsp **********************

<%@ page language="java" import ="java.sql.*, java.io.*, java.util.*, com.wrox.cars.*"  %>

<jsp:useBean id="bank" class="com.wrox.cars.japf12" />

<html>
  <head>
      <title>Control </title>
  </head>
<body>

<table border ="2">
  <tr>
     <td> Customer Code </td>
     <td> Security Type </td>
  </tr>

 <%
  String cust = request.getParameter("Customer");
   bank.connect();
   ResultSet rs = bank.data(cust);
   while (rs.next()) {
 %>

  <tr>
     <td align="center"><%= rs.getString("TA1001") %>  </td>
     <td align="center"><%= rs.getString("TA1022") %>  </td>
  </tr>

<!-- I need to perform the checking either the "Customer" which user is in my databse or not. If it's return nothing, I want to print something.. like the code below...... But it's give me false or true only.....   -->

 <tr>
       <td align="center"> <%= rs.wasNull() %>

 <%
     if (rs.wasNull()) {
        out.println("No Data");
     }
    } %>
  </td>

</table>
<% bank.disconnect(); %>
<% rs.close(); %>
</form>
</body>
</html>

a few ways of doing this:

1.  If your JDBC driver is JDBC 2.0 compliant you can do the following:
  int numOfRecords = 0;
  if (rs != null) {
     rs.last(); // move cursor to last record
     numOfRecords = rs.getRow(); // get the total num of records thru current row which is the last row now.
  }
  // now numOfRecords should have number of records returned

  Now if you need to go through the data reset the cursor using row.first();


2.  use a counter:
  int numOfRecords = 0;
  while (rs.next()) {
     numOfRecords++;
  }
  // now numOfRecords should have number of records returned

3.  Modify your query to do a count like 'count(*) as recordcount from yourtable where x = y'
  int numOfRecords = 0;
  while (rs.next()) {
     numOfRecords = rs.getInt("recordcount");
  }
  // now numOfRecords should have number of records returned

One of these should do the job for you.

HTH,
CJ

boolean exists = false;  // true if a customer exists.
ResultSet rs = bank.data(cust);
while (rs.next()) {
   exists = true;
%>

Thank you. I thought the "rs" can not work like (! rs).

TQ.

I think I am still lack of experience in JSP programming. Any suggestion in the internet where I can download some sample application.

for JSP info check out:
http://www.jspin.com/
But remember JSPs are coded in Java so learning Java is the key here:
http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/infodocs/#tutorials

should get you started on the right foot.

Glad I could help and Thanx for the "A"
