Just use two queries and join them 'manually'

if i use this


// go off to postgresql
conn = Connection.getConnection();
PreparedStatement ps = conn.prepareStatement(sql, rsPS.TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE, rsPS.CONCUR_READ_ONLY);
rsPS = ps.executeQuery();

// go off to mysql
conn = ConnectionMySQL.getConnection();
PreparedStatement ps = conn.prepareStatement(sql, rsMS.TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE, rsMS.CONCUR_READ_ONLY);
rsMS = ps.executeQuery();


How do 'join' the 2 recordset?

Get the key field from the first and use it to lookup in the 2nd recordset

loop thru the first result set, and for each record make a select on the other database by the the foreign key

conn = Connection.getConnection();
PreparedStatement ps = conn.prepareStatement(sql, rsPS.TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE, rsPS.CONCUR_READ_ONLY);
rsPS = ps.executeQuery();
while (rsPS.next()) {

   Object key = rsPS.getObject(...);
   String sql = ...

   // go off to mysql
   conn = ConnectionMySQL.getConnection();
   PreparedStatement ps = conn.prepareStatement(sql, rsMS.TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE, rsMS.CONCUR_READ_ONLY);
   rsMS = ps.executeQuery();

   // loop thru rsMS
}

no the query is too complex it's full of left outer, inner and union joins. with a massive where clause using an old version of mysql so i can do any sub queries

i also need the results as a recordset and send as xml using jdom

i'll have to copy the data in a sql job from one server to the other and do it that way

   Hi!

You should use this method as CEHJ says : http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/javax/sql/rowset/JoinRowSet.html
Example (taken from the above link) :

    JoinRowSet jrs = new JoinRowSetImpl();
 
     ResultSet rs1 = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM EMPLOYEES");
     CachedRowSet empl = new CachedRowSetImpl();
     empl.populate(rs1);
     empl.setMatchColumn(1);
     jrs.addRowSet(empl);
 
     ResultSet rs2 = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM ESSP_BONUS_PLAN");
     CachedRowSet bonus = new CachedRowSetImpl();
     bonus.populate(rs2);
     bonus.setMatchColumn(1); // EMP_ID is the first column
     jrs.addRowSet(bonus);

Regards,
  Tomas Helgi
