How do I check if a cursor is in the last row?

On the previous example, we check for the beginning of the result-set. Now using the isAfterLast() method we can check the opposite whether the pointer is at the end of the result set.

package org.kodejava.jdbc;

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.sql.Statement;

public class ScrollableAfterLastExample {
    private static final String URL = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/kodejava";
    private static final String USERNAME = "kodejava";
    private static final String PASSWORD = "s3cr*t";

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try (Connection connection =
                     DriverManager.getConnection(URL, USERNAME, PASSWORD)) {

            Statement statement = connection.createStatement(

            String sql = "SELECT id, code, name, price FROM product";
            ResultSet resultSet = statement.executeQuery(sql);

            // Let's jump to the last records. The afterLast() method will
            // position the cursor after the last record.

            while (resultSet.previous()) {
                long id = resultSet.getLong("id");
                String code = resultSet.getString("code");
                String name = resultSet.getString("name");
                double price = resultSet.getDouble("price");

                System.out.println(id + "\t" + code + "\t" + name + "\t" + price);
        } catch (SQLException e) {
