Is it possible ( and safe ) to pass a reference to the current row of a result set to a method
ie are the following snippets equivalent?

Snippet A
   while (rs.next())

Snippet B.
   while (rs.next())

   private void methodA(ResultSet rs)

Thanks in advance

They basically work the same. You are just passing the reference to the ResultSet to another method, and inside that method you invoked the getString() method. There is really no difference. The state of the rs object is not changed as a result of using methodA.
