There is a tool called henplus which is perfect for working over a low-bandwidth connection.

You will find it at

It works in a similiar fashion to sqlplus but is much easier to use and the advantage is that you can use any jdbc driver for it. Just copy your jdbc driver under ~/.henplus/lib then use register to register your driver (if it isn't aleady) and away you go.

Hi Red1,

I've wanted to do some contributing for a while now. But now I've got DSL at home so got less excuse not to. I hope to make some more contributions as I go.

I'm busy with a project that has been a learning process to say the least, and not always in a positive sense. But we can learn sometimes more from when things go wrong.

Cheers Neil

Hi Neil,
Thats great to hear that u have broadband! Welcome to the Under...i mean cyberworld :) .

About problems, think of them as situations, for they are the only times we truly learn well. So i see them as positive :lol:
