There may be other ways of defining a DDL, but to most people it means "create", "drop" 
and "alter", which are ANSI SQL.

It seems disingenuous of iBatis to claim it -- as David points out -- "provides the full 
power of SQL", when it doesn't support three of the most common commands. And, I suppose 
this has probably been discussed before, but why not? Isn't iBatis ultimately just 
wrapping the SQL in prepared statements and running it for me? What's so special about 
create, drop and alter?
