Stream from SQL RS to a file

Hi,

I am currently making a program, which is getting data from SQL Server DB (using jTDS) into a resultset. This resultset is then looped for every row and then written to a random access file. Now my question is, how I could do this so the program could just dump all the data to a file without any looping? I was thinking of using a direct stream from input to output, this is possible, right?

See below the code (it's working, but it's extremely slow in bigger amount of SPs and not all characters are written to the file as they should be)...

 
<--- begin of code --->

import net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver;
import java.io.*;
import java.sql.*;
public class CreateFiles {
      public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
            try
            {
                  String url="jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://mssql-server:1433";
                  String usr = "sql";
                  String passwd = "sql";
                  Class.forName("net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver");
                  Connection conn=DriverManager.getConnection(url, usr, passwd);
                  conn.setCatalog("TestDB");
                  ResultSet rs = null;
                  CallableStatement proc = null;
                  String fileName = "";
                  String theData = "";
                  fileName = "FirstFile";

                  proc = conn.prepareCall("{ call sp_Java_GetTest  }");
                  rs = proc.executeQuery();
                  while(rs.next())
                  {
                        theData = theData + rs.getString(1) + rs.getString(2)
                        + rs.getString(3) + rs.getString(4);
                  }
                  rs.close();
                  rs = null;

                  proc = conn.prepareCall("{ call sp_Java_GetTest2  }");
                  rs = proc.executeQuery();
                  while(rs.next())
                  {
                        theData = theData + rs.getString(1) + rs.getString(2)
                        + rs.getString(3) + rs.getString(4) + rs.getString(5);
                  }
                  rs.close();
                  rs = null;


                  writeFile(fileName, theData);
                  theData = "";



    public static void writeFile(String f, String s) throws IOException
    {
            try
            {
                  RandomAccessFile rf = new RandomAccessFile(f, "rw");
                  rf.writeBytes(s);
                  rf.close();
            }
            catch (IOException e)
            {
                  System.err.println (e);
            }
      }

}

<--- end of code --->

So as you can see, the idea is to write to one file data from different SPs.

Hope you can help me out with this one!

You could loop thru the result set and write to say a FileOutputStream .
You can't avoid looping thru the result set thought, that is how results are read.

If the RS is very huge, you could read it initally into a CachedRowSet and then disconnect from the database. Scrolling through the CachedRowSet would be faster, but well - you have to scroll ;-)
