/**
   @brief A class for presenting a database result set.

   A database result set is generated by executing an SQL statement that queries
   the database.

   Select statements, catalog functions, and some procedures create result sets.
   For example, the following SQL statement creates a result set containing all
   the rows and columns of the table DUAL:

     <code>SELECT * FROM DUAL</code>

   A result set can be empty, which is different from there being no result set at all. For
   example, the following SQL statement creates an empty result set:

     <code>SELECT * FROM DUAL WHERE 1 = 2</code>

   An SQLDBC_ResultSet object maintains a cursor pointing to its current row of data.
   Initially the cursor is positioned before the first row. The next()
   method moves the cursor to the next row, and as it returns
   #SQLDBC_NO_DATA_FOUND when there are no more rows in the SQLDBC_ResultSet
   object, it can be used in a WHILE loop to iterate the result set.

   Example for creating an SQLDBC_ResultSet object:

     <code>
     SQLDBC_Statement *stmt = conn->createStatement (); <br>
     stmt->execute ("SELECT * FROM DUAL"); <br>
     SQLDBC_ResultSet *rs = stmt->getResultSet (); <br>
     rs->next(); <br>
     </code>

   To reduce the time needed for retrieving the data from the database, the
   SQLDBC_ResultSet class supports so called block cursors, which can return more
   than one row at a time. The rows returned by a block cursor are called a 'row set'.
   The result set is fixed, the rowset is not. It changes position and contents
   each time a new set of rows is retrieved from the database.

   With block cursors, the method setRowSetSize() must be used
   with a parameter greater than 1.

   Navigation within the data represented by the SQLDBC_ResultSet object is possible
   using of navigation methods like first(), next(), previous(), relative() etc.

   When block cursors are used, after applying the navigation methods, the cursor
   points to the actual row set. For example assuming a result set size of 50
   and a rowset size of 10, in the following sequence the block cursor points
   to the rows indicated:

   - first()    : Rows  1 - 10 of the result set
   - next()     : Rows 11 - 20 of the result set
   - next()     : Rows 21 - 30 of the result set
   - previous() : Rows 11 - 20 of the result set
   - last()     : Rows 41 - 50 of the result set

   In order to perform operations that operate on a single row only when multiple rows have been
   fetched, the application must indicate which row is the current row. When
   a block cursor first returns a row set, the current row is the first row of that
   row set. To change the current row, the application must call the member function setPos().

   The data of a certain column in the current row can be retrieved by calling the
   method getObject().

   Data fetched from the database is passed on to the application in variables that
   the application has allocated for this purpose. Before fetching the data from the database, the
   application bind these variables to the columns of the result
   set. Applications can bind any number of columns of the result set, including binding no columns at all.

   Binding of columns is done by calling to the member function bindColumn().
   The column binding valid for all rows.

   After positioning the cursor through navigation methods, the data
   from the database is written into the bound column variables by a call to
   the member function fetch() of the row set of this result set.
   When block cursors are used, the number
   of rows actually filled can be determined with the member function
   getResultCount().

   For unbounded columns, data can be written into application variables with
   getObject(), or - in case of block cursors - by calling
   setPos() on the rowset and then calling getObject().

/**
   @brief An SQLDBC_Statement is a class for executing SQL statements immediately.

   With this class applications can handle all DDL and DML commands
   without parameter markers. Parameter markers are the '?' or ':<name>' tags.
   Use SQLDBC_Connection::createStatement from the connection object to
   get a new SQLDBC_Statement object.

   Use the execute() member function to execute the SQL statement.

   The SQL statement may contain ASCII or UCS2 characters and must not be
   zero-terminated. The execute() member function converts it automatically
   to the correct code set according to the encoding of the database.
   In this way it is possible to write portable code for UNICODE and
   non-UNICODE databases.
   To increase performance, applications should use UCS2 statements
   only for UNICODE databases.

   @par Example:
   Execution of a SQL statement

   <pre>
   SQLDBC_Statement *stmt = conn->createStatement();
   SQLDBC_Retcode rc = stmt->execute("SELECT * FROM DUAL");
   if (rc != SQLDBC_OK) {
     // Handle error ...
   }
   </pre>

   After execution, the application must check the return code of the
   command. If an SQL error occurred the error() member function
   returns error details.

   @see SQLDBC_ErrorHndl for more informations.

   Query statements like SELECT or CALL DBPROC commands may produce a result
   set. Applications should check this with the isQuery() or getResultSet()
   member function.

   @par Example:
   Check if a result set exists.

   <pre>
   if (stmt->isQuery()) {
      SQLDBC_ResultSet *result = stmt->getResultSet();
      // Retrieving result ...
   }
   </pre>

   The getResultSet() member function returns a reference to an SQLDBC_ResultSet
   object. Applications can use SQLDBC_ResultSet for retrieving data from
   the result set of the query statement or to navigate within result sets.
   An opened result set is automatically closed by reusing the execute() member
   function or by closing the object with an SQLDBC_Connection::releaseStatement().

   @see SQLDBC_ResultSet for more informations about result sets.

   Prior to executing an SQL statement, the application can set the name of the
   result set with the setCursorName() member function, or it can set the type
   of the result set with setResultSetType() to modify the behavior of the
   result set.

   For non-query SQL statements the application can check the number of
   modified rows with the getRowsAffected() member function.

  @note:
  - Applications must call SQLDBC_Connection::createStatement() to construct an new SQLDBC_Statement object.
  - Use SQLDBC_PreparedStatement for executing the SQL statement more than once or for SQL
  commands containing parameters.
  - Use isQuery() or getResultSet() to check if the SQL statement has returned
  a result set.
  - Manipulation of the result set behavior (row limits, scrollability,
  updatability) is possible with setResultSetType() and setResultSetConcurrencyType() member functions.

/**
  @brief A class for preparing and executing SQL statements.

  A prepared SQL command can be parsed and contain input and output
  parameters. Parameters are marked with a '?' or ':<name>' tag.
  All DML commands can be parsed. DDL commands can be parsed, too.
  However, it is not recommended to do so.
  Prepared SQL commands increase the performance since they are parsed only
  once and executed several times.
  Applications only need to change the content of the bound parameters and
  execute the command again.

  All prepared SQL commands are stored in an internally managed
  \link pcache.html ParseInfo Cache \endlink.
  The ParseInfo Cache shares this information with different prepared
  SQL statements within the same connection.


  - Use SQLDBC_Connection::createPreparedStatement from the connection
  object to get a new SQLDBC_PreparedStatement object.
  - Use the prepare() member function to prepare the SQL statement.
  - Use the execute() member function to execute the previously prepared
  SQL statement.

  The SQL statement may contain ASCII or UCS2 characters and must not
  zero-terminated. The execute() member function converts it to
  the adequate code set considering the code of the database.
  Therefore it is possible to write portable code for UNICODE and non-UNICODE
  databases.
  @note To increase the performance, applications must use UCS2 statements
  for UNICODE databases only.

   @par Example:
   Preparation and execution of an SQL statement.

   <pre>
   SQLDBC_PreparedStatement *stmt = conn->createPreparedStatement();
   SQLDBC_Retcode rc = stmt->prepare("SELECT * FROM DUAL");
   if (rc != SQLDBC_OK) {
     // Handle error ...
   }
   rc = stmt->execute();
   if (rc != SQLDBC_OK) {
     // Handle error ...
   }
   </pre>

  @par Hints:
  - The application must call createPreparedStatement()
    to retrieve a prepared SQL statement
  - For parsing the SQL statement, call the prepare() member function,
  - For a single-row execution, use the execute() member function,
  - For mass execution, bind arrays of parameter values, use setBatchSize() to
    set the row array size to the number of array elements bound,
    and use the execute() method.
  - Use the isQuery() method to check whether the parsed
    statement creates a result set upon execution.
  - Use SQLDBC_Statement for a direct execution, since the prepared statement
    inherits all direct-execution functions from SQLDBC_Statement.
  - The current result set is deleted when
     - A new statement is parsed
     - The statement is re-executed
     - The statement is deleted
     .
