Calling isBeforeFirst() multiple times on a RefCursor ResultSet always returns true (Doc ID 1497502.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 03, 2016

Applies to:

JDBC - Version 11.2.0.2.0 to 11.2.0.3.0 [Release 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

With JDBC 11.2.0.2 and 11.2.0.3 resultSet.isBeforeFirst() always returns true when calling a PL SQL stored procedure that has a ref cursor as an OUT parameter.
If you fetch from a ref cursor in a loop while rs.next(), calling isBeforeFirst(),  then it loops indefinitely returning the first row.

 

The issue does not occur with JDBC 10.2.0.5 or 11.2.0.1.
