Guys! May I come up with some more propositions?

Well, (in the order of importance)

1) as long as we have <esql:get-string column=".." encoding="windows-1251"/>, it would
be hingly reasonable
(and highly usefull!) to have  <esql:parameter encoding="windows-1251"/>. I've tested
it myself (there's my
patch somewhere there in the mailist that does it via setBytes()) and it works!

2) (semantics, not schema) is it reasonable not to have <esql:results> when <esql:no-results>
is instantiated?
e.g. is it reasonable to have <esql:results> and <esql:no-results> be mutually
exclusive? (this would simplify xslt processing
of the result)

3) guys! do you really think that having a way to catch exception somewhere around
    } finally {         /*line 278, v1.41 */
      try {
        if(!_esql_connection.connection.getAutoCommit()) {
is a bad idea? What I'm speaking about is having some 
            <error>Can't connect to database: <esql:get-message/></error>
at <esql:connection> level? 

Of cource, I could catch this in /*<xsp:logic>try{}cathc</xsp:logic>*/ 
but would not this make the error-handling more straightforward?

4) we're running an unreliable database and are quite limited on the licenses. 
And caching quite suits our needs.
So we have reasons to open and close jdbc connections every time the
xsp is executed.
Is it possible to 
have some tag like <esql:pool> (<esql:nopool>?) that would have the following
it would accept the same values as <esql:pool> but would extract
dburl user and pass from where they are stored and open connection?
So we wouldn't have to give dburl, user and pass everywhere, just the "name" of
database configuration but still we would have NO connection pooling?
