You seem to be a bit confused about the difference between a relational 
database and an XML database. A relational database has tables, rows, is 
searched using SQL and sometimes has a JDBC driver. XIndice has none of 
these things and so will not work with JDBC. It stores XML documents 
(grouped into collections), you search it with XPath and the things 
returned are XML fragments.

Do not try to use XIndice as a relational database.
