... which isnt where it belongs. java is (barely) an applications-level
language, not a systems-level language. let your app treat the data it
gets from a rdbms as an object/entity, not vice versa. i think javablend
from Sun does something like this ( creating objects from rdbms data ) and
im positive NeXT/Apple's Enterprise Objects Framework does this. GNUstep's
'DBkit' ( or whatever its called ) does the same thing, but is based on
EOF1.0. its a much, much nicer approach to the whole issue, not to
mention quite a bit more flexible and portable.

would be rather trivial to write an export app that dumps the data into
html format. in fact, psql does this already.
