Thanks for putting me on the right track with this. I am using this from Kotlin and came up with a Streaming version that works fine if you use it in a transaction. Also, you have a bug in your exit condition and you are skipping the last row. I fixed this by making hasNext do most of the work here (a good idea when implementing iterators) and by streaming the converted rows and not the rows themselves. This also gets rid of the problem you have with the first row.

fun <T> queryStream(sql: String, converter: (SqlRowSet) -> T, args: Array<Any>): Stream<T> {
    val rowSet = jdbcTemplate.queryForRowSet(sql, *args);

    class RowSetIter : Iterator<T> {
        var current: T? = null
        override fun hasNext(): Boolean {
            if (current != null) {
                return true
            } else {
                if ( {
                    current = converter.invoke(rowSet)
                    return true
            return false

        override fun next(): T {
            if (hasNext()) {
                val retVal = current
                current = null
                return retVal!!
            } else {
                throw NoSuchElementException()

    val spliterator = Spliterators.spliteratorUnknownSize(RowSetIter(), Spliterator.IMMUTABLE)
    return, false)

This is Kotlin but you should be able to convert this back to Java easily. I use JdbcTemplate together with a TransactionTemplate to make sure the connection stays open while I stream the results.
