10.9. Finding the Number of Rows Returned by a Query

10.9.3. Discussion

The number of rows in a result set is a property of that result set, so that numRows( ) is called on the statement handle and not the database handle. The number of rows affected by a data manipulation query, however, can't be a property of a result set, because those queries don't return result sets. As a result, affectedRows( ) is a method of the database handle.
