Resultsetmetadata Interface in JDBC

The metadata means data about data, in case of database we get metadata of a table like total number of column, column name, column type etc.

While executing a select operation on a database if the table structure is already known for the programmer, then a programmer of JDBC can read the data from ResutlSet object directly. If the table structure is unknown then a JDBC programmer has to take the help of ResultSetMetadata.

A ResultSetMetaData reference stores the metadata of the data selected into a ResutlSet object.

How to get the object of ResultSetMetaData ?

To obtain a object of ResultSetMetaData, we need to call getMetaData() method of ResutlSet object..


ResultSetMetaData rsmd=rs.getMetaData();

Methods of ResultSetMetaData

The following are the methods called on ResultSetMetaData reference.

1getColumnCount()To find the number of columns in a ResultSet
2getColumnName()To find the column name of a column index.
3getColumnTypeName()To find data type of a column.
4getColumnDisplaySize()To find size of a column.

Example of ResultSetMetaData

import java.sql.*;
class ResmataDataTest
public static void main(String[] args)throws Exception 
Connection con =DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:oracle:thin:@John-pc:1521:xe","system","system");
System.out.println("driver is loaded");
Statement stmt=con.createStatement();
ResultSet rs=stmt.executeQuery("select * from student");
ResultSetMetaData rsmd=rs.getMetaData();
//find the no of columns
int count=rsmd.getColumnCount();
for(int i=1;i <=count;i++)
System.out.println("column no :"+i);
System.out.println("column name :"+rsmd.getColumnName(i));
System.out.println("column type :"+rsmd.getColumnTypeName(i));
System.out.println("column size :"+rsmd.getColumnDisplaySize(i));
