    I am a software engineer from GE. I am using JDBC to operate
PostgreSQL8.3 in Ubuntu8.04. The develop environment is Eclipse3.2 My
problem is: 
    There is a PostgreSQL table XX containing 5 fields: AA, BB, CC, DD,
EE, AA is primary key and auto-generated type, BB, CC, DD and EE is
string type.
    I want to get the value of AA immediately after insert a row into
the table. the code is like this:
    Statement st = db.creatStatement(ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE,
    ResultSet rs=st.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM XX");
    rs.updateString(BB, "b");
    rs.updateString(CC, "c");
    rs.updateString(DD, "d");
    rs.updateString(EE, "e");
    int index = rs.getInt("AA");
   in the last sentence I always get 0 no matter how many records I
insert. I tried other ways of moving the cursor including next(), last()
and so on, and also cannot get the correct value. I tried the drivers
both postgresql-8.3-603.jdbc3.jar and postgresql-8.3-603.jdbc4.jar.
    But when I use pdadminIII to check the table XX, the AA field is
already auto-generated with the correct value.
    I found a way to solve this: close resultset and statement after
moveToCurrentRow() and re-open them, and rs.last(), then run int
index=rs.getInt("AA"), I can get the correct value. I think this method
is sort of awkward, anyone knows a better way and the correct
I am not sure it is proper to send this mail to this mail list. Sorry if
bring you any inconvenience.
Thanks a lot!
Best Regards
