This is a ten minute piece of code, it's over powerfull, you ought to
check it :-)

It's an extension to SSI, that will allow you to create templates that
access a database. A sample example will explain it better:

<html>
<head>
<title>Database SSI</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Database SSI</h1>
<p>This Server Side Include extension allows you to query a database
   (which I am doing right now) 
<!-- First step, make a query to the database -->
<!--#jdbc select="SELECT * FROM users" name="result" driver="imaginary.sql.iMsqlDriver" url="jdbc:msql://www43.inria.fr:4333/demo" -->

<!-- Second Step, skip to first row -->
<!--#jdbc name="result" next="true" -->

<!-- Third step: have fun with the results -->
	<p>The query has run, here is the first result:
	<p>First  row: <!--#jdbc name="result" column="1" -->
	<p>Second row: <!--#jdbc name="result" column="2" -->
</body>
</html>

I am all over excited, you have to understand that as SSIResources can
be nested, you can get the template from a database, and have it
filled through the database, not to mention things like per-client
page customization...

For those of you who want to share fun, here is *all* the code needed !
BTW It needs improvement, of course; don't forget to register the new
command in some command registry, ie add in
DefaultCommandRegistry.java :

    private static Command[] cmds =
    {
	new ConfigCommand(),
	new IncludeCommand(),
	new EchoCommand(),
	new FSizeCommand(),
	new FLastModCommand(),
	new ExecCommand(),
	new SampleCommand(),
	new CountCommand(),
	new CookieCommand(),
	new w3c.jigsaw.ssi.jdbc.jdbcCommand()
    };
