In the last few days a number of co workers who have
seen me using SQuirreL have installed it. What I found
to be the hardest part of the setup was getting the
drivers working and configuring the DB to work.
What would be nice were say the ability to export my
list of aliases (minus user name and passwords) and
actual drivers in 1 jar file that could then be
imported into any other SQuirreL client. This would
also east the setup of SQuirreL in enterprize settings
where the help desk could just supply a preconfigured
"settings" jar that would be easily imported. I
understand that you cant supply the JDBC drivers but in
a case where the user had licensed drivers, repackaging
them for internal distribution makes a lot of sense.
I think this would greatly enhance the usability and
"market share" of SQuirreL
