SQL Question ... how to SETGT, READPE in SQL

Is there a simple way to select the last record in a series? Say the most

recent record of a set using a timestamp.

For example, a data base record with
data fields

In RPG one could create a logical file, or OPNQRYF with keys

To get the last record for each id one could

set id to *LOVAL
repeat until end of file

Can you do this with SQL (hence with Java) ... or should you drop back to
relative record access with JT400?

Thanks all
