TimerTask with a while loop

I want to query my database every minute to view the latest information. I am using a TimerTask with a while loop embedded in it. Everything seems to work fine, the task executes at the proper intervals, the DB connection is fine, but my while loop will only go through one iteration. It never goes to the next record in the recordset even though there are multiple records.
Does anybody know what I am doing wrong?

Here is a code snippet with the unimportant info taken out.

class RemindTask extends TimerTask {
      public void run() {
            try{
                  // Set up DB stuff
                                                .
                                               // End of DB setup

                  while(rs.next()){      
                        aucID=rs.getInt("aucID");      
                        System.out.println("ID is: "+aucID);
                  }
                  rs.close();
                  stmt.close();
                  con.close();      
            }

there's only one record.

1) those two lines don't exit the while.

2) rs.next() returns true if the new current row is valid; false if there are no more rows.

there's no reason for it to exit until it has finished all the records.

check your SQL

please post the...
// Set up DB stuff
// End of DB setup

print out your sql, and run it externally to confirm how many records are returned.

Thanks for the help guys. It turned out to be some really sloppy SQL on my part that would end up returning one record even though I knew there was more. I gave all of you points for your help.

Cheers,
