Ok, version 4.3.6 is running now with MonetDB/SQL.  It's a very cool
tool (can even draw dependency graphs based on the schema and foreign
keys!  Monica should try that with her DBtapestry schema!).  I also
found out that JDBC was not n00b-proof yet, so I did some commits
related to that.

In order to use the tool follow the next steps.

1. get the software
   go to http://www.minq.se/products/dbvis/install-436/install.jsp
   and download version 4.3.6 for your platform.  I didn't test 5.0
2. set it up for monetdb
   after starting DbVisualizer for the first time, it will load its
   default welcome screen.
   Before doing anything, open the Driver Manager, using the menu
   Tools->Driver Manager...
   In the Driver Manager add a new Driver using Driver->Create Driver...
   Type the name of the driver in the Name field, e.g. MonetDB.
   Type the URL format for the driver: jdbc:monetdb://hostname/database
   In the Driver File Paths box, follow the directions to load a JAR
   file that contains the JDBC driver.  Use the MonetDB JDBC driver
   that came with your distribution, typically installed in
   After adding, the window should list the driver class
   nl.cwi.monetdb.jdbc.MonetDriver and automatically fill it in in the
   Driver Class field.  Close the Driver Manager window.
   Back in the main window, in the Getting Started box, click the
   Tools->Connection Wizard link.
   A connection Wizard will pop up, and you will think you are working
   on a Microsoft Powered computer, no matter which operating system you
   Type the name for the database, e.g. MonetDB and click "Next".
   Select the just added monetdb Database Driver from the drop down
   list and again press "Next".
   Go grab a cup of coffee, when you found out the Wizard not only looks
   like a Microsoft Product(tm), but also acts like one.  Try to hide
   your frustration and cancel the Wizard and continue the manual way.
   From the menu select Database->Create Database Connection.  A popup
   dialog will try to persue you to use the wizard.  You know better so,
   click "No".
   Fill in the name for the connection in the Alias field, e.g. MonetDB.
   Select the monetdb driver from the list.
   Copy the default URL by clicking on the "URL Format: ..." text field
   and change it to reflect the right hostname (usually localhost will
   Fill in the userid and password (monetdb).
   Press the "Connect" button.  It will report the database being used
   and the JDBC driver in use.  In the left pane the monetdb database
   now becomes available from browsing.
3. use it!
   Explore the application and have fun!
