Options  (3)

"Mode"  (2)

Specify one of "ForwardOnly", "ScrollInsensitive", or "ScrollSensitive", depending on whether the desired result set is scrollable and sensitive to changes in the underlying data:

The mode "MySQLStreaming" is supported by some MySQL drivers. This unscrollable mode is suitable for streaming large result sets with low memory use:

Compute memory in use, including both kernel and Java layers:

Read a conventional forward-only result set 100 rows at a time:

Memory use is relatively high, as the driver is keeping a copy of the result set in memory:


Read the result set in streaming mode:

Memory use in the streaming case is relatively low:

"FetchDirection"  (1)

Specify "Forward", "Reverse", or "Unknown" to direct the JDBC driver to employ different fetching and caching strategies:
