As a JavaBeans component, a JdbcRoSet object can be used, Ior example, in a GUI tool to select a JDBC
driver. A JdbcRoSet object can be used this way because it is eIIectively a wrapper Ior the driver that
obtained its connection to the database.
Disconnected RoSet Objects
The other Iour implementations are disconnected RoSet implementations. Disconnected RoSet objects have
all the capabilities oI connected RoSet objects plus they have the additional capabilities available only to
disconnected RoSet objects. For example, not having to maintain a connection to a data source makes
disconnected RoSet objects Iar more lightweight than a JdbcRoSet object or a ResultSet object.
Disconnected RoSet objects are also serializable, and the combination oI being both serializable and
lightweight makes them ideal Ior sending data over a network. They can even be used Ior sending data to thin
clients such as PDAs and mobile phones.
The CachedRoSet interIace deIines the basic capabilities available to all disconnected RoSet objects. The
other three are extensions oI the CachedRoSet interIace, which provide more specialized capabilities. The
Iollowing inIormation shows how they are related:
A CachedRoSet object has all the capabilities oI a JdbcRoSet object plus it can also do the Iollowing:
Obtain a connection to a data source and execute a query
Read the data Irom the resulting ResultSet object and populate itselI with that data
Manipulate data and make changes to data while it is disconnected
Reconnect to the data source to write changes back to it
Check Ior conIlicts with the data source and resolve those conIlicts
A WebRoSet object has all the capabilities oI a CachedRoSet object plus it can also do the Iollowing:
Write itselI as an XML document
Read an XML document that describes a WebRoSet object
A JoinRoSet object has all the capabilities oI a WebRoSet object (and thereIore also those oI a
CachedRoSet object) plus it can also do the Iollowing:
Form the equivalent oI a SQL JOIN without having to connect to a data source
A FilteredRoSet object likewise has all the capabilities oI a WebRoSet object (and thereIore also a
CachedRoSet object) plus it can also do the Iollowing:
Apply Iiltering criteria so that only selected data is visible. This is equivalent to executing a query on a
RoSet object without having to use a query language or connect to a data source.
