Using SQL Adapters in Productions
Using Result Sets
class represents a special-purpose result set for use in InterSystems IRIS™. An initialized instance of this class has a live data connection to a data source. The class provides methods to examine the contents of the result set as well as a method to return a static snapshot.
Note that you can also get a snapshot that contains rows from the result set; see Using Snapshots
To create and initialize an SQL result set:
Use the ExecuteQuery()
or the ExecuteQueryParmArray()
method of the adapter. You will receive, by reference, an instance of EnsLib.SQL.GatewayResultSet
If you just use the %New() class method, you can create a result set, but it will not be initialized and cannot contain any data. To initialize the result set, use the procedure described here.
A result set consists of rows of data. You can use the following methods to navigate through the rows:
method Next(ByRef pSC As %Status) returns %Integer
Advances the cursor to the next row and caches the row data. Returns 0 if the cursor is at the end of the result set.
method SkipNext(ByRef pSC As %Status) returns %Integer
Advances the cursor to the next row. Returns 0 if the cursor is at the end of the result set.
Use the following methods to examine the current row of the result set:
method Get(pName As %String) returns %String
Returns the value of the column that has the name pName, in the current row.
method GetData(pColumn As %Integer) returns %String
Returns the value of the column whose position is specified by pColumn in the current row.
method GetColumnName(pColumn As %Integer = 0)
Returns the name of the column whose position is specified by pColumn.
If the source data contains any unnamed columns, the result set automatically provides names for these columns in the following form: xCol_n
