Jython's zxJDBC package provides functionality similar to the DESCRIBE
requested on this list for ij.

|| cursor.tables(qualifier,owner,table,type)

|| Same as DatabaseMetaData.getTables

And there a number of commands that map to DatabaseMetaData methods.


Possibly if Jython has existed when Cloudscape started, it would have
been picked at the SQL scripting tool. It would be interesting to see if
someone could add a jython test type to the Derby harness (or does it
exist in Junit?) and write Derby tests in Jython. Of course I don't know
if the Jython licence is compatible with the Apache licence.
