Currently i'am using jython for database administration (because didn't find
an native driver)

I like the java jdbc driver because you don't need to install anything
especialy interesting when sharing code)

But the downside is that you have the java tiresome api. the obvious reason
way i have choicen python/jython.

Well, prefer a native one but if it's easy to install the odbc driver
that would be fine too.

Thanks,
Philip
