[platform-swt-dev] getElement from database

hi guys, i'm writing a plugin for udig(based on eclipse). I have to show a
table which rows are the result of a DB selection. I'm able to get the rows
from the database, but I think I'm doing something wrong in getting them
back to the table.
Following a skeleton of my code.
CollectionItem defines the type of data.
getElement is a Content Provider method.
I don't really know how move on.
I have problems with LabelProvider which doesn't allow me to show the column
name because of a casting problem from CollectionItem, but i have a method
like this: String[] colName= coll_It.getColumnName(); this method returns a
string array. Trying instead to print a string array {from 1 to 10} the
label are printed all in the first column filling 10 rows.
i hope you could help.

public class CollectionItem {
	private ArrayList<Object[]> items= new ArrayList<Object[]>();
	private String collection;
	Object dbRow[]=null;
	public CollectionItem(String collection){
	public ArrayList<Object[]> getItem(){
		return items;
	public void extractData(){
		String query = "SELECT I.* FROM  Items as I  Inner Join CollectionItems AS
CI  ON I.ItemID = CI.ItemID where CI.CollectionID like \""+collection+"\"";
		try {
			DbAction db= new DbAction("Collezione");
		    Statement s = db.openConnection();
			ResultSet rs = s.executeQuery(query);
			ResultSetMetaData rsmd = rs.getMetaData();
			dbRow= new Object[rsmd.getColumnCount()];
			columnName= new Object[rsmd.getColumnCount()];
			boolean done=false;
			while( rs.next() )
				for(int i =1; i <= rsmd.getColumnCount(); i++){
				items.add(dbRow);//fill vector with array containing rows
		 catch (SQLException e) {
			// TODO Auto-generated catch block


Inside TableContentProvider:

public Object[] getElements(Object inputElement) {
		CollectionItem ci = new CollectionItem(inputElement.toString());
		return ci.getItem().toArray().length;
