[DB-SIG] ANN: jyjdbc 0.0.2 now available

The pure Jython (Python in the JVM) JDBC dbapi pep-249 driver, jyjdbc 
0.0.2 is now available from:


At the moment jyjdbc passes more of 
http://stuartbishop.net/Software/DBAPI20TestSuite/ than zxJDBC.

I suspect I'm the only user of jyjdbc at the moment :-)

I'm hoping to convince enough people to give jyjdbc a try so we can 
ditch zxJDBC. zxJDBC was useful when it was first released but I no 
longer find it useful and the bugs/deficiencies with it annoy me. Rather 
than gripe about it further I have an alternative, I think jyjdbc is 
going to be easier to maintain. If you are a Python developer using a 
database driver, you probably have enough development skills to help 
update this driver if there are problems.

Right now the weakness of jyjdbc is a lack of testing with other 
drivers. I've got the start of a http://db.apache.org/derby/ test suite. 
If anyone with Derby experience is willing to help out please contact 
me. I keep getting timeout errors from the Embedded Derby Engine 
(irrespective of whether I use jyjdbc or zxjdbc).
