Hi all,

Is the semicolon legal in SQL statements passed to the JDBC API ?
I'm asking this because I've had problems with semicolons with other
drivers too (e.g. Oracle).
OTOH, for the given problem, my opinion is that the driver should use
some meta data passed back from the server after the server executes the
query to find out what tables/fields were used (makes no sense to write
a JDBC-side parser, too high risk of getting out of sync against the
server's parser). I guess this is not supported by the current
communication protocol, but my point is to push this as a real solution.
