Return results from Oracle DB to command line using java

OK, so here's the problem:
Create a DB with transparent encryption - check.
populate it with "sensitive info" - check.
write a java program to access the db and return a query of said sensitive info - half check...

I've got the program.  I'm sure it can be done better (i'm working at my ability level as you can see).  I have hit a roadblock when it comes to printing out the results.  I've tested each sql statement (including the one that's an sqlj token) and they work in sqlplus and sqlDeveloper.  What the program is not doing however, is printing the results.  It runs up to the while loop and ends.  No printout whatsoever.  Line 86 is the last line printed than it returns to a prompt.  

Apart from developing th rest of the code to prevent sql injection and to also obscure the password entry input, I have no idea what to do as everything looks ok to me.  Would someone be so kind as to look over my work and tell me where I made a wrong turn (even if it's the whole thing)?

Thanks

You are right about the driver but it still does the same thing.  I altered the code to obscure the password input with console.readPassword.  THAT result makes me enter the password twice before it continues and then doesn't display query reslts...

>                                                            " WHERE username=' "+uname+" ' AND password=' "+pword+" ' ");

if you're using a character array for password then that also needs to change to


                                                           " WHERE username=' "+uname+" ' AND password=' "+new String(pword)+" ' ");


(And will only find a record if one exists with a blank password)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This is nuts...what you're saying makes sense once I see it, but it is simply not wanting to work.  I get the same result:  Enter the password once, twice (nothing) and on the third it prints the title line.  I am going to try a DSN to the local DB (that connection I KNOW works).
 
try{
                con.setReadOnly(readOnly);
                stmt = con.createStatement();
                readOnly = con.isReadOnly();

                        con.close();
                     }
                        else if(readOnly){

yes, make sure you are hitting the right database

and remove the where from your query as a test to see all the rows returned

I think I just saw two parts to the problem.  First the DSN connection worked, which means my oracle drivers aren't where my machine believes them to be (env vars).  No matter, i can run with the DSN connection for now.
THe second is this error I get after the db accepts the three password inputs (for each result set presumably):
java.sql.SQLException: ResultSet is closed

...after the title line with no line number to indicate.

returns all rows without the user name and password (or rather, with, but just as junk data to get past the conditions.

                           char[] pword = console.readPassword("Password? ");
                            try{
                                if ((console.readLine()) != null && (console.readPassword()) != null) {


you call readPassword() twice

This after making the changes:

http://www.screencast.com/users/gcurrier/folders/Jing/media/65fa423d-60ed-4917-af0e-b803f4ad7509
 I added a line to output the vars (to see what would be returned)  Pass word is only entered twice this time...
else if(readOnly){
                            System.out.print("Please enter your username and password.\n");
                            Console console = System.console();
