Doing 3 queries in three methods.

Hi

I have 3 queries
   1. is to get values of some items
   2. See if one of the  value in the table is set to "true"
   3. Update the flag to "false"

Query 1 can not go through until query 2 is successful and the value in table is set to "true"

Now using Resultset and Connection how do I do this in three methods or even in the same method. I dont want to duplicate the
Connection conn==........    code.

Thank you in advance for all the help
