I've got to use many other similar tools, but I really enjoy how this Eclipse SQL Explorer works so fast, almost instantly. When yesterday I found it on SF.net, I immediately rushed to try it. When everything worked seamlessly, I created a tutorial with many screenshots which illustrate almost every step. I used the CUBRID Database as an example which has its own JDBC driver.
Take a look at this tutorial http://www.cubrid.org/eclipse_sql_explorer and maybe you want to add it to your site among other tutorials (actually, I could not find any). This would help other users to quickly start using SQL Explorer.
Another thing I would suggest you to add the CUBRID JDBC Driver as well among the rest JARs. You can download the JDBC driver separately from http://www.cubrid.org/cubrid_java_programming, or download the CUBRID Database http://www.cubrid.org/downloads and play around yourself.
The CUBRID JDBC Driver is also available through Clojars.org if it helps somehow.
Once you add the CUBRID JDBC driver to SQL Explorer, I plan to announce it to all CUBRID users. Hope it will help your project grow. I really liked its performance!
nice tutorial. I have added a Resources page to the SQL Explorer web site with links to your tutorial and the JDBC driver download page. I added the CUBRID driver configuartion sample to the defaults driver xml too. So it will be available with the next release.
I have made a little correction on the web site. SE requires now Eclipse 3.3 at minimum. Could pleas chaneg this in your tutorial too.
Currently there is no version of SE packaged with JDBC drivers. The problem are the different licences under which JBBC drivers will be released and the compatibility to the LGPL under which SE is released. I'm not en expert in that area. Perhaps you can help to find out which drivers are allowed to redistribute with SE.
Nevertheless I have added a list of download links of public available JDBC druvers to the SE web site.
Many thanks for your tutorial.
