  <title>Proposal for Commons DBUtils Package</title>
  <section name="Proposal for DBUtils Package">
  <subsection name="(0) Rationale">
  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.
  <subsection name="(1) Scope of the Package">
  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.
  <subsection name="(1.5) Interaction With Other Packages">
  <p><em>DBUtils</em> relies only on standard Java 1.2 (or later) APIs for
  production deployment.  It utilizes the JUnit testing framework for
  developing and executing unit tests, but this is of interest only to
  developers of the component. Being dependent on Java 1.2 means that 
  this code is expected to be of JDBC 2.0 level. 
  No external configuration files are utilized.
  <subsection name="(2) Initial Source of the Package">
  Potential source code for this package will come from the initial 
  committers' personal libraries.
  The proposed package name for the new component is
  <subsection name="(3)  Required Jakarta-Commons Resources">
  <li>CVS Repository - New directory <code>dbutils</code> in the
      <code>jakarta-commons</code> CVS repository.</li>
  <li>Mailing List - Discussions will take place on the general
      <em></em> mailing list.  To help
      list subscribers identify messages of interest, it is suggested that
      the message subject of messages about this component be prefixed with
  <li>Bugzilla - New component "DBUtils" under the "Commons" product
      category, with appropriate version identifiers as needed.</li>
  <subsection name="(4) Initial Committers">
  <p>The initial committers on the DBUtils component shall be:</p>
    <li>Henri Yandell</li>
    <li>Steven Caswell</li>
    <li>Juozas Baliuka</li>
    <li>David Graham</li>
