First release of DB Copy Plugin for SQuirreL

This plugin provides

- Copy and Paste tables from one session to another (Can be different database
types (MySQL -> Oracle, SyBase->MySQL, etc...)

- Uses Hibernate 3.0 internally to perform database object type mappings.

The "Copy Table" and "Paste Table" functions are accessible through
the context-sensitive (right-click) menu of the Object Tree. See
readme.html for example usage.

INSTALLATION HINTS:

1. The plugin requires JDK 1.4.x and Squirrel SQL Client 2.0 RC1 or higher

2. Extract the contents of dbcopy-0.10.zip to the plugins directory of Squirrel SQL Client.

3. Squirrel SQL Client needs to be restarted in order to load the plugin.

4. When running SQuirrel check the plugins dialog (Menu Plugins --> Summary)
to see if there is an entry named "DBCopy Plugin". If not check that you have
