Installation of JdbcRowSet Reference Implementation

This section describes how to download and install JdbcRowSet Reference Implementation.

The reference implementation of JdbcRowSet API was provided by Sun Microsystems. Since JDK 1.7, the Sun implementation is included in the JDK package now as the default implementation.

To access the Sun implementation, you can use methods from the RowSetProvider class and the RowSetFactory class:

// Creating an instance of the default RowSetFactory implementation
   RowSetFactory f = RowSetProvider.newFactory();

// Creating an instance of JdbcRowSet from the factory
   JdbcRowSet s = f.createJdbcRowSet();

Here is a tutorial program that shows how to create a JdbcRowSet object with the Sun default implementation:

 * Copyright (c) All Rights Reserved.
import java.sql.*;;
import javax.sql.rowset.RowSetProvider;
import javax.sql.rowset.RowSetFactory;
import javax.sql.rowset.JdbcRowSet;
public class OracleRowSetFactory {
  public static void main(String [] args) {
    try {
      RowSetFactory f = RowSetProvider.newFactory();
      JdbcRowSet s = f.createJdbcRowSet();
      System.out.println("RowSetFactory: "+f.getClass().getName());
      System.out.println("JdbcRowSet: "+s.getClass().getName());
    } catch (Exception e) {

Compile and run it with JDK 1.8, you will get the following output:

herong> java OracleRowSetFactory

RowSetFactory: com.sun.rowset.RowSetFactoryImpl
JdbcRowSet: com.sun.rowset.JdbcRowSetImpl

The output confirms that Sun implementation of JdbcRowSet API is the default implementation.

If you are using JDK 1.6, you need to download and install the Sun implementation JAR file. I followed these steps to download and install Sun's reference implementation package:

The installation is done. But don't forget to read the API documentation at \local\jdbc_rowset\doc\index.html.
