Reading a ResultStatement(Oracle Database) into an array and then returning it to method.

I have a program that uses the JDBC-ODBC bridge to read the firstName and lastName from and Oracle database, it saves the first and last names into a string and then saves each full_name into an array.  However, when I return my array it saves the 1st two names as null in the array and only gets the last full_name correctly.  The connection works fine, and it will even do a System.out.println of all the names fine, and while in the while(rs.next()) loop when I check to make sure the names got put in the array...they have.  But, once I'm out of the loop to return my array...the 1st two names are gone.  I also get 3 warnings...but..I don't think they are the cause of the problems,

The method with the problem is (the username and password have been ommitted),
public static String[] loadConnectionandNames()
 {
    try
            { System.out.println("Right before trying to load the driver class...");
                  //String url = "jdbc:odbc:Oracle";
                  Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
                 System.out.println("Loaded the driver class!");
            }
            catch (ClassNotFoundException e)
            {
                  System.out.println("Unable to load Driver Class");
                return null;
            }
            
          try {
System.out.println("Right before trying to make connection");                  
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:Oracle", " ", " ");
System.out.println("Created the connection...");
Statement stmt = con.createStatement();
        ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT lastName, firstName FROM CUSTOMER");
            while(rs.next()) {

                last_name = rs.getString("lastName");
                System.out.println("Got last Name");
                first_name = rs.getString("firstName");
                System.out.println("Got first Name");
                String cust_full_name = first_name + " " + last_name;
                System.out.println("Customers names = " + cust_full_name);
             
                full_name = new String[max_length];

                full_name[t] = cust_full_name;              
                System.out.println("Customers names = " + full_name[t] + "??? " + t);

                System.out.println("Fullname value " + full_name[t]);
                ++t;
                System.out.println("After t is added one = " + t); //return full_name;
                              }


 for (int z=0; z<t; ++z)
                {//This is where the 1st names are no longer in my array
System.out.println("final loop" + full_name[z] +"???"+t); } return full_name;
                 }
              catch (SQLException se) {
              System.out.println("A SQL Exception occurred." + se.getMessage());
              se.printStackTrace(System.out);

System.out.println("Returning null values for customers"); return null;         }

Sorry for all the System.out.println's, I've been trying to fix this for awhile,  If anyone could help
me it would be very much appreciated...Thanks! :)

> full_name = new String[max_length];

You recreate your array for every row, should only do this one before the loop.

full_name = new String[max_length];
while(rs.next()) {

Well....I'm not using the prefs package either...I decided to import java.util to see if that would help ..and it didn't.  It doesn't come up with the errors until my entire program is finished.  I must just have something set up incorrectly in my java folders.
