[jboss-user] [EJB 3.0] - ScrollableResults possible in JBoss ?

Hi there,

I am retrieving information from a Postgres database via the EntityManager, createQuery and its function getResultList(). It is easy to use especially with the EJB entity annotations. A disadvantage is that it stores all the results in memory. I know about the pagination possibilities with setFirstResult() and setMaxResults().

I want to access data like a cursor and only having one record at a time in memory (not totaly true, since the dbms will store some additional records in memory, but ok). It is meant for a server side process triggered by a timer, so pagination using the getResultList() makes no sence.

Has anybody some experience with ScrollableResults and the scroll() and evict() functions in JBoss ? And if possible share some code how to do this in JBoss.

I have spent several days now on this topic, but I have no idea how to proceed.

Thanks in advance,
