It's not a bug, AFAIK. isLast() returns true if the resultset is
positioned *on* the last row of the resultset. This means that if you
have a 5-row resultset, isLast() is true when the 5th row is the
currently active row (and you can retrieve data from that row at that

For a 0-row resultset, we can never be on the last row as there are no
rows at all.

You could try something like this for your hasNext() condition:

  rs.isBeforeFirst() || (rs.getRow() != 0 && !rs.isLast())

(note that isBeforeFirst() returns false on an empty resultset, per javadoc)
