This is a Java project that focuses on JDBC testing.
There exists a need to test database oriented code without necessarily
involving a database.

Many database oriented software systems are hard to test because the state of 
the database is often hard to reproduce in a testing environment. Usually, a 
lot of time is spent writing scripts to put the database into a desired state 
for testing.

One solution would be to have a Mock JDBC compliant database server which uses 
Mock objects. Setup data for the application that is being tested could then be 
scripted in a non-database oriented manner.

The project would be to build a Mock database server that would allow use of 
Mock objects (see, and allow the user of the Mock 
database server to control data that is returned to the application that is 
being tested via a scripting mechanism. The Mock database server would also 
need to process SQL in a meaningful manner.

I basically view this project as being complimentary to the Mock objects 
project, but separate in the sense that it "closes the loop" on JDBC testing.
