To turn on streaming at the statement level you need to use a set of common JDBC settings that, when used together, inform the driver to stream. When you create or prepare a statement you must define how the result will be used and what is the fetch size. For example,
Statement statement = connection.createStatement( ResultSet.TYPE_FORWARD_ONLY, ResultSet.CONCUR_READ_ONLY); statement.setFetchSize(Integer.MIN_VALUE);and
PreparedStatement statement = connection.prepareStatement( "select ... from ... where ...", ResultSet.TYPE_FORWARD_ONLY, ResultSet.CONCUR_UPDATABLE); statement.setFetchSize(Integer.MIN_VALUE);For more information see section Result Set in JDBC API Implementation Notes. DataSource Level
To turn on streaming at the statement level you need to add a property to the JDBC uri. For example, Integer. MIN_VALUE is -2^31 and so use
jdbc:mysql://localhost/?defaultFetchSize=-2147483648For more information see Driver/Datasource Class Names, URL Syntax and Configuration Properties for Connector/J.  I could not use the MySql tools for dumping and loading the table data because I used an auto_increment column in one of the related tables, the target database was active with data, and so could not reset the target's auto_increment column to an appropriate value.
