Amaral:

JDBC depends on external implementations and vendor-specific products,
although the JDBC API presents a unified view of these SQL-type
databases.  Since VisAD is coded in Java, it should be possible for you
to use the JDBC APIs to read or write your DBMS files from within your
application...whether or not you are using VisAD's libraries as well.

Sun's main page is:

http://java.sun.com/products/jdbc/index.html

and they have a tutorial on this package as well:

<http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/onlineTraining/Database/JDBC20Intro/JDBC20.html>

There is also a Python interface, xzJDBC that ships with Jython which
you could use.  As far as I know, there are no File Adapters in
VisAD that deal specifically & directly with SQL files.

Hope that helps.
