I could not find anything in JavaDoc for ResultSet.getRow() which 
indicates that getRow() should not be allowed on forward-only result 
sets. So this may be a bug in Derby.

The docs are out-of-date. I am not sure exactly which version, however 
at least since 10.1.2 scrollable resultsets will back the data to disk 
(to a temporary table) if the result set is huge.
