How to interface with ROWID column in DB2?

I'm using DB2 version 7.1.
I have a column in a table called ROWID, and the Data Type is ROWID. However, I don't know how to interface with it in Java. For example, for CHAR and VARCHAR, I use the String class. For SMALLINT, I use int, etc. But what do I use for ROWID? It's not in the java.sql.Types list. The DB2 manual says it is stored as a VARCHAR(17), but I didn't just want to assume I could use String.
Any thoughts?

try getObject() and see what kind of object you get:
ResultSet rs = statement.executeQuery("...");
while( {
  Object o = rs.getObject(1); // the rowid column
  System.out.println(o + " class: " + o.getClass().getName());

  • TrueTime Card and how to interface with dll file!?

    I am trying to interface with a PCI-SG 2U (IRIG) timing card (Used to made by TrueTime, now Symmetricom).  Does anyone have a solution for this card in LV 2009?  
    If not, can anyone give advice on writing code to interface with .dll file?  I am not sure how to pass through the "GENERIC_READ | GENERIC_WRITE" into the function to open the device. The function says to open it is: 
    TT_OpenDevice(boardID, GENERIC_READ | GENERIC_WRITE, &hDevice)
    No clue on how to pass this in.  Can anyone help?
    Thanks - 

    Thanks Mike.  I do have the .h file and the sdk information.  I went through and used the Import>Shared Library Tool and was able to find all the header information that way.  I guess that my problem/question is, the documentation says that it is a DWORD to pass as an input, but LabVIEW says it is a uint32.  I guess the real question is, what the heck do I pass in to the dll function?  Should it be the string "GENERIC_READ | GENERIC_WRITE" or something else?
    Thanks - 

  • LabVIEW 3.1 SE: how to interface with Centronics

    I would to interface my serial ADC (ADS7822) via
    Centronics so I was wondering how I can do it
    by usinf LabVIEW 3.1 Student Version.
    Thanks in advance.

    The printer port (Centronics) is parallel communication and you'll need a converter. The ones in my Black Box catalog ( are not cheap - ~U$100. Cheaper to buy another serial port card for the computer. You'd then have the problem of how to communicate with the parallel port. Version 3.1 is extremely old. With a newer LabVIEW version you'd have more options.

  • How LV interfaces with a microcontroller (serial communication).

    I am starting to design a system that uses an RFIC, a microcontroller and a VI to act as a user interface.  The microcontroller outputs in RS232 to a Lantronix device which packages up the information and sends it over a network. I plan on using LV's VISA to locate the device.  I have not worked with a system like this before and I would like to know how LV sees the data that is being sent over the network and how I can unpackage the data and make sense of it in LV, then output data to be sent to the uC.  I would appreciate any suggestions anyone may have.

    The Lantronix device will install a device driver to the PC that creates a virtual com port.  LabVIEW will communicate with that com port (Let's say Com8) through VISA.  The device driver will handle the communication with the Lantronix device over the network.
    The Lantronix device I used is pretty sophisticated, and was not that easy to set up.  It may also have other methods of communication such as talking to it TCP/IP.  If I remember correctly, it also had a local terminal mode and a remote terminal mode.
    In the end, once I figured out the trick to getting the device driver to work (the instructions were just not that obvious on how you had to set up the ports and open up the firewall to make it work), I was able to use it just like I said at the beginning as a Virtual com port.  I've used other remote serial devices that were truly much more plug and play.

  • How to interface with NI PCI-7344

    First off,i have to say im a newbie with labview so if tis is some stupid qns,my apologies.I nid to work out a program using LabView 8.0 to control a stepper motor thru NI PXI-7344 and the NI UMI-7764. The program is ready with the output as a 32-bit integer, However i am clueless to wad should i connect it to. can some1 kindly plz help me thanks

    Since you have a PXI-7344, it should have come with the NI-Motion
    driver. Is that something that you have installed currently? If not,
    you can find the latest version here.
    To learn how to programmatically control a stepper motor, you might
    want to start off by taking a look at some of the examples that come
    with LabVIEW. To access them, open up LabVIEW, then go to Help >>
    Find Examples...
    Using the Browse by Task option, expand the Hardware Input and Output
    folder, and then the Motion Control folder. Here you will find many
    examples that you can examine to learn her to program your motion
    control application.

  • How to interface with Chameleon camera

    Hi everyone,
    I am trying to use Labview to control Chameleon camera, which is from Point Grey Research. I am using the ActiveX control interface and I have encounter a problem of using "Call Library Function" node. I am using that node to get the image array from a pointer and trying to display. However, the "Call Library Function" node doen't work.
    I am wondering how can I get the  image array from a pointer that is used by the FlyCapture?
    Was there anyone experience the same thing?

    Please check to see if your camera is supported by the Industrial Camera Advisor. Also, when you say that the Call Library Function node does not work, does it return a specific error message or just not return any data?
    Lastly, is the FlyCapture application an ActiveX enabled application? If so you should be able to register for events and also pull the information from the application by running through this help document.

  • Database design to support parameterised interface with MS Excel

    Hi, I am a novice user of SQL Server and would like some advice on how to solve a problem I have. (I hope I have chosen the correct forum to post this question)
    I have created a SQL Server 2012 database that comprises approx 10 base tables, with a further 40+ views that either summarise the base table data in various ways, or build upon other views to create more complex data sets (upto 4 levels of view).
    I then use EXCEL to create a dashboard that has multiple pivot table data connections to the various views.
    The users can then use standard excel features - slicers etc to interrogate the various metrics.
    The underlying database holds a single days worth of information, but I would like to extend this to cover multiple days worth of data, with the excel spreadsheet having a cell that defines the date for which information is to
    be retrieved.(The underlying data tables would need to be extended to have a date field)
    I can see how the excel connection string can be modified to filter the results such that a column value matches the date field,
    but how can this date value be passed down through all the views to ensure that information from base tables is restricted for the specied date, rather than the final results set being passed back to excel - I would rather not have the server resolve the views
    for the complete data set.
    I considered parameterisation of views, but I dont believe views support parameters, I also considered stored procedures, but I dont believe that stored procedures allow result sets to be used as pseudo tables.
    What other options do I have, or have I failed to grasp the way SQL server creates its execution plans and simply having the filter at the top level will ensure the result set is minimised at the lower level? (I dont really want the time taken for the dashboard
    refresh to increase - it currently takes approx 45 seconds following SQL Server Engine Tuning Advisor recommendations)
    As an example of 3 of the views, 
    Table A has a row per system event (30,000+ per day), each event having an identity, a TYPE eg Arrival or Departure, with a time of event, and a planned time for the event (a specified identity will have a sequence of Arrival and Departure events)
    View A compares seperate rows to determine how long between the Arrival and Departure events for an identity
    View B compares seperate rows to determine how long between planned Arrival and Departure events for an identity
    View C uses View A and view B to provide the variance between actual and planned
    Excel dashboard has graphs showing information retrieved from Views A, B and C. The dashboard is only likely to need to query a single days worth of information.
    Thanks for your time.

    You are posting in the database design forum but it seems to me that you have 2 separate but highly dependent issues - neither of which is really database design related at this point.  Rather you have an user interface issue and an database programmability
    issue.  Those I cannot really address since much of that discussion requires knowledge of your users, how they interface with the database, what they use the data for, etc.  In addition, it seems that Excel is the primary interface for your users
    - so it may be that you should post your question to an excel forum.
    However, I do have some comments.  First, views based on views is generally a bad approach.  Absent the intention of indexing (i.e., materializing) the views, the db engine does nothing different for a view than it does for any ad-hoc query. 
    Unfortunately, the additional layering of logic can impede the effectiveness of the optimizer.  The more complex your views become and the deeper the layering, the greater the chance that you befuddle the optimizer. 
    I would rather not have the server resolve the views for the complete data set
    I don't understand the above statement but it scares me.  IMO, you DO want the server to do as much work as possible since it is closest to the data and has (or should have) the resources to access and manipulate the data and generate the desired
    results.  You DON'T want to move all the raw data involved in a query over the network and into the client machine's storage (memory or disk) and then attempt to compute the desired values. 
    I considered parameterisation of views, but I dont believe views support parameters, I also considered stored procedures, but I dont believe that stored procedures allow result sets to be used as pseudo tables.
    Correct on the first point, though there is such a thing as a TVF which is similar in effect.  Before you go down that path, let's address the second statement.  I don't understand that last bit about "used as pseudo tables" but that sounds more
    like an Excel issue (or maybe an assumption).  You can execute a stored procedure and use/access the resultset of this procedure in Excel, so I'm not certain what your concern is.  User simplicity perhaps? Maybe just a terminology issue?  Stored
    procedures are something I would highly encourage for a number of reasons.  Since you refer to pivoting specifically, I'll point out that sql server natively supports that function (though perhaps not in the same way/degree Excel does).   It
    is rather complex tsql - and this is one reason to advocate for stored procedures.  Separate the structure of the raw data from the user.
    (I dont really want the time taken for the dashboard refresh to increase - it currently takes approx 45 seconds following SQL Server Engine Tuning Advisor recommendations)
    DTA has its limitations.  What it doesn't do is evaluate the "model" - which is where you might have more significant issues.  Tuning your queries and indexing your tables will only go so far to compensate for a poorly designed schema (not that
    yours is - just a generalization).  I did want to point out that your refresh process involves many factors - the time to generate a resultset in the server (including plan compilation, loading the data from disk, etc.), transmitting that data over the
    network, receiving and storing the resultset in the client application, manipulating the resultset into the desired form/format), and then updating the display.  Given that, you need to know how much time is spent in each part of that process - no sense
    wasting time optimizing the smallest time consumer. 
    So now to your sample table - Table A.  First, I'll give you my opinion of a flawed approach.  Your table records separate facts about an entity as multiple rows.  Such an approach is generally a schema issue for a number of reasons. 
    It requires that you outer join in some fashion to get all the information about one thing into a single row - that is why you have a view to compare rows and generate a time interval between arrival and departure.  I'll take this a step further and assume
    that your schema/code likely has an assumption built into it - specifically that a "thing" will have no more than 2 rows and that there will only be one row with type "arrival" and one row with type "departure". Violate that assumption and things begin to
    fall apart.  If you have control over this schema, then I suggest you consider changing it.  Store all the facts about a single entity in a single row.  Given the frequency that I see this pattern, I'll guess that you
    cannot.  So let's move on.
    30 thousand rows is tiny, so your current volume is negligible.  You still need to optimize your tables based on usage, so you need to address that first.  How is the data populated currently?  Is it done once as a batch?  Is it
    done throughout the day - and in what fashion (inserts vs updates vs deletes)?  You only store one day of data - so how do you accomplish that specifically?  Do you purge all data overnight and re-populate?   What indexes
    have you defined?  Do all tables have a clustered index or are some (most?) of them heaps?   OTOH, I'm going to guess that the database is at most a minimal issue now and that most of your concerns are better addressed at the user interface
    and how it accesses your database.  Perhaps now is a good time to step back and reconsider your approach to providing information to the users.  Perhaps there is a better solution - but that requires an understanding of your users, the skillset of
    everyone involved, what you have to work with, etc.  Maybe just some advanced excel training? I can't really say and it might be a better question for a different forum.   
    One last comment - "identity" has a special meaning in sql server (and most database engines I'm guessing).  So when you refer to identity, do you refer to an identity column or the logical identity (i.e., natural key) for the "thing" that Table A is
    attempting to model? 

  • Interface with Yahoo Games?

    I would like to try to write an my own applet to interface with the game server at Yahoo. Is that possible? Can someone points me to the documentation of how to interface with Yahoo game servers, please?

    Of course it's possible. However, they must first define an API or some interface for using their games. You need to get in touch with the people at Yahoo and find out what their interface is. You may use EJB, RMI, or who knows. You may have to use JNI, but it all depends on how Yahoo has their games setup. Without more information, I can't give you a specific answer.
