> It would be useful to be able to query DBF content through SQL.
> But there are no free drivers available for the old _Dbase 3_ format.
> The first step is to create short implementations of _Connection_, _Statement_, _ResultSet_,
_ResultSetMetadata_ interfaces for a JDBC using our _Database_ class as core binary loader
at the begining.
> The main difficulty is to respond to a SQL request, and first : being able to analyze
it to understand what is expected.
> The SQL request analysis is a very strong job, but I suggest to ease it a lot by relying
on _AntLR_ API for grammar analysis, associated with a BNF grammar file, maybe taken from
^1^ or from elsewhere (grammars are of public domain).
> The goal of this current JIRA is only to be able to perform a 
> _SELECT * FROM <shapefile layer name>_
> The WHERE clause or the selection of fields, will come later in other JIRA.
> No transactions, classic _Statement_ only.
> _PreparedStatement_ would be also implemented later (another JIRA).
> Of course, this improvment can be discarded if an open source or free driver is discovered,
that would allow us to execute SQL requests on DBase 3 easily.
> ^1^ For example, [http://www.savage.net.au/SQL/] has some BNF, but maybe elsewhere they
will more compliant with AntLR.
