This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I would like to extend java.sql.* package by adding more features that will fetch/add/delete/modify dbase values in XML format directly.
I mean to say instead of using/involving DOM/SAX/JAXP etc kind of stuff along with java.sql package. Add classes/interfaces/methods to the present SQL pacakage which will provide these functionality directly , if not all atleast the basics procedures.
This will also eliminate, say, a seperate tool needed to do mapping database tables to XML format.
These days Iam working on the project which involves all these things and I find it too expensive to put to use all these tools in terms of money as well as in terms of precious time.
