Hi, I have following SQL statement.
SELECT E.ID, E.NAME,
CURSOR(SELECT F.MEMBER, F.AGE FROM CLIENT F WHERE F.ID = E.ID)
FROM EMPLOYER E

If I run something like this in Java:
ResultSet rs = statement.executeQuery(sql);

I can read E.ID and E.NAME using rs.getString(1), but how do I read the values in the cursor?

Thanks in advance

I'm not a Java guy and I've never even tried this using .Net.  Are you declaring data types for the returned values?

set up an alias for the cursor:
SELECT E.ID, E.NAME,
CURSOR(SELECT F.MEMBER, F.AGE FROM CLIENT F WHERE F.ID = E.ID) myCur
FROM EMPLOYER E

You should be able to use getObject (or similar) for e.myCur.
