What way should I write the java code to do sql when the out come should only be a bunch of fields to be displayed in a JSF type  JSP? As opposed to a List maybe or as opposed to an ArrayList. Can I get some type example?

Am not entirely clear; could you elaborate?

Can I get an example of a java class that does sql and places the result into some setters?
Thank you
Will the result be for just a single column, or for multiple?
Can you also expand a little on the "setters"; a particular data type?

single column ... string fields and a text field.
thank you
Perform the query, the result will be returned as a ResultSet instance; call this instance's getArray() method, and specify the required column as a parameter (either as an index—int, or column name—String).

// shove this stuff inside a try{} scope.

Class.forName( "sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver" ) ;
Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection( "jdbc:odbc:MyDataBase", "", "" ) ; // db, username, password

Statement st = conn.createStatement() ;

ResultSet rec = st.executeQuery( "SELECT column_name FROM table WHERE something_is_true" ) ;

String [] rows = (String [] ) rec.getArray( 1 ) ;  // 1 = the first column

st.close() ;

You now have the results in a String array, caleld 'rows'.
