I have decided to discontinue development (what little there was) of this project.
I don't believe there is any point in competing with the eclipse project (www.eclipse.org) as it has a far better framework than I could copy. It is fast, supported and a great IDE.
In other news, watch out for PhotoAlbum (I'm sure a catchier name would be better!) a servlet based web photoalbum.
Of course the beauty of open source is that if someone so desired, they could continue development. My recommendation is to better spend your time working on plugins for eclipse.
I've taken it all apart to try and clean up the handling of configuration. I think I have a clean way of doing it and the prototype works. The end result will be that you no longer have to hack configuration files to make things work.
The interface layer between the JDBC and the application is well underway. Support for Oracle 8 and Sybase 12 is working.
The SQL editor thus supports schema completion for these databases.
After much pain and anguish, it is now possible to connect to a database through the interface. Most of the pain has been due to making the connections between different parts of the interface extremely flexible.
