Hi, Noel,

first of all, thanks for your reply.

Quoting one Noel J. Bergman: ;-)

Btw, using Axion is not an option, as long as Axion doesn't support composed
primary keys.

Some part of JaxMe is able to generate code by querying for JDBC metadata.
The test suite uses hsqldb to verify that part. And building the
distribution includes building the test suite. We can discuss whether
this needs to be like it is, but I definitely like it for reasons of
quality. A better solution would be to resolve the license issue.

No. Made of individuals.

There have been discussions and votes, but so far no true disagreements.

That second part is the interesting thing: How do we add our keys to the
"web of trust"? (Not that I know what it is. :-)
