Hi Tony,

    excellent and thanks for the good info. I am not sure what Java 
libraries I may need to port
but I will give it a shot to see how it behaves. All I need is pretty 
much an elementary table
to be accessed through a servlet I already wrote running under Java CDC 
on the N800. Is
there a J connector available for this port I can use? You said you have 
been using this only
for Perl-based apps so I am not sure if you ever tried any Java apps 
with it.

Thanks very much once again

I've been using it successfully with Perl-based applications for quite a while now. You may need to port whatever Java libraries are needed (I only did the Perl DBI/DBD modules), but the DBMS is available.

As soon as I get time I'll get them into Extras; meanwhile if anybody's in desperate need, get in touch and I'll let you have pre-release debs.
