   <h3>(0) Rationale</h3>
   
  -<p>There's a lot of Java code out there that talks to databases, nearly always through
JDBC[tm]. With the way these things work, this means there's a lot of utility components out
there which can be aggregated into one, useful library. This seeks to be that library.
  +<p>
  +Correct JDBC coding is time consuming and error prone.  Many
  +JDBC coding tasks can be simplified with a small helper library
  +that factors out the mundane resource cleanup steps.  DbUtils
  +is focused on providing such a library without any heavyweight 
  +framework surrounding it.
   </p>
   
   
   <h3>(1) Scope of the Package</h3>

  -various types of java to database related activity.</p>

  +This proposal is to create a package of Java utility classes for
  +various types of JDBC related activity.  DbUtils will
  +not be an OO representation of database objects nor will
  +it be an Object/Relational framework.  It will be
  +a lightweight JDBC library that helps developers write
  +correct database code.
