Subject Terminology question - are dblook, ij, and sysinfo Tools or Utilties?
Date Fri, 08 Jun 2007 20:29:16 GMT
I'm trying to be accurate in the Derby documentation when discussing
dblook, ij, and sysinfo.

Are these "tools" or "utilities"?  Is there a difference between a
"tool" and a "utility"?

Should one term apply to all of these or should we use different terms
depending on what it does?  For example, one of these simply dumps
info to the screen (sysinfo). Is that different than opening up a mini
application (ij)?

I'd appreciate your options on the correct term to use to describe
each of these.
