Right, I only half-remembered the orm part which contains some
database metadata.
For instance, it should actually be possible to derive a DdlUtils
schema from the OJB mapping definition because it contains enough
info. (I should try that some time ...)
The same (in combination with the JDO-mapped classes in order to get
the field types and thus be able to find reasonable JDBC types) could
be true for JDO2 orm data, though probably only in one direction (but
the more important one: classes -> database).
