If I use the same statement object and resultset object with more that one query like below
stmt = conn.prepareStatement(q1);
rs = stmt.executeQuery();
while(rs.next){
.....
.......
}
...
.....
.......//do I have to close the resultSet and the statement Objects before using them again.
stmt = conn.prepareStatement(q2)
rs=stmt.executeQuery()
.....
......
.......//close the same again in the same program?

My Question is if I want to use the same statement object and resultSet for more than one Query in the same program, do I have to close each time before using them again. If so, do I have to close the following each and every time in the program
1. ResultSet
2. Statement Object
3. Connection object

> 1. ResultSet
You dont use the same ResultSet for another query, but you have to close it after you finished working with it

ResultSet.close()
Releases this ResultSet object's database and JDBC resources immediately instead of waiting for this to happen when it is automatically closed.
Note: A ResultSet object is automatically closed by the Statement object that generated it when that Statement object is closed, re-executed, or is used to retrieve the next result from a sequence of multiple results. A ResultSet object is also automatically closed when it is garbage collected.

> 2. Statement Object
No. closing is not requied to execute another query

By default, only one ResultSet object per Statement object can be open at the same time. Therefore, if the reading of one ResultSet object is interleaved with the reading of another, each must have been generated by different Statement objects. All execution methods in the Statement interface implicitly close a statment's current ResultSet object if an open one exists.


> 3. Connection object

PreparedStatement can only execute the query it was created for (q1), so how do you want to use the same stmt for another query (q1) ?
