Navigation-methods for interface "DataModel"
I'm trying to get my feeds wet with the JDNC-class-library. So please be patient with me. Just one question to the JDNC-team:
Why interface "org.jdesktop.swing.data.DataModel" lacks to have navigation-methods like first, last, next, previous?
There are methods like "setRecordIndex" and "getRecordCount" but I think navigation-methods are crucial for each "DataModel". I hope I didn't miss something important. So please correct me if I'm wrong.
I also tried to get my feeds wet with JSR 227. Oracle already has an implementation of that JSR. You can read the documentation of Oracle's own ADF-Library on OTN. JSR 227 has a so-called "Iterator-Binding" or "DataControl" which is approximately the same like interface "DataModel" in JDNC.
Here is a short description of Oracle's DataModel/Iterator-Class:
execute (= refresh)
first, last, next, previous
I wonder if the existing documentation of JSR 227 or more precisely Oracle's ADF-CRUD-Library would be sufficient to
"implement" that (non-existing) JSR 227. I really think that JSR 227 is extremely important for the Java-community and especially for Java-desktop-development.
