Hi John,

thx for responding  :)

I'm trying to analyze the HDBC code so that, maybe, I'm able to find the  
spot that's causing me trouble.

Do you happen to have some documentation on how you desigend this?

Also while digging through the code I learned some stuff that I found  
quite interessting. As an example I found the function "executeMany" to be  
part of a data declaration, now that's certainly something I as a newbie  
have never seen before, is there a special name for this technique?
