Subject Extracting dependencies from SQL statements
Date Mon, 08 Mar 2010 22:31:29 GMT

is it possible to use Derby's SQL parser to "extract" dependencies from a 
given SQL statement?
(or access the parser once the statement has been parsed).

Whether it's a simple SELECT or a JOIN, UNION or a more complex statement, 
I would like to get a list of tables that this statement would depend on.
Looking for FROM clauses and attempting to do the parsing myself seems 
like a difficult, error prone and impractical way to approach this.

Any suggestions, please?
