Just create a List of JButton. Add to it as you retrieve results

Yes, you can. If you do that after retrieval, you can determine the rows and columns too

Actually to avoid two iterations, you can call setColumns on the GridLayout, having retrieved the number of columns from DatabaseMetaData

>>how do i add the data to the JButton

You need to tell me more about what's required. You probably need to do

JButton b = new JButton(rs.getString("SomeColumn"));
buttons.add(b); // add to List
