Subject Re: JDBC Development

In fact, I am not cloning the remote layer and writing it in
Java, I am coding all of this stuff from scratch. Don't be
afraid Jim, I am not writing a XDR port in Java. :-)

Sorry, but I'm not very good explaining what I am doing and
how I am doing it. And, of course, my poor english doesn't help
very much.

Thanks Jim.
