Using the Java JoinRowSet implementation with DB2 UDB

The efforts of JSR114 bring you the offering of serializable disconnected objects in Java 1.5. With these objects, you can connect to a DB2 UDB database and grab data locally. You can then release your database connection and manipulate the data offline. At a later time, you can reconnect to your database and synchronize changes made to the disconnected objects. In this article, I will show you how you can perform offline JOIN operations on your DB2 Universal Database data using the JoinRowSet interface. Sample code included.
