There is a way, it is called updatable result sets.  Here is Java's tutorial:

The only problem with this method is that it usually locks the database for the duration of the tranaction (The transaction lasts until the resultset is closed).  You need to look at your processes and determine the probability of two users accessing the same record at the same time.  If the probabilty is low, then don't worry about it, otherwise check out this thread:

as long as concurency is not an issue, just do the following:

  1) Select results
  2) Store ResultSet in an Object
  3) Close statement, and connection (Don't close resultset)
  4) Return object containing ResultSet
  5) Display ResultsSet do user and allow changes
  6) Propogate changes back to resultSet
  7) Excecute Update on resultSet
  8) Close ResultSet

The record being modified will be locked all through 1-8, so no other user will be able to modify that record (possibly not even select it).  When the statement is closed, the DB locks will be released.
