Well, it will be a development environment for database apps, that what I was
talking about in my previous mail (app server stuff).

Yes, and as much as there are, the most people will use gnome-db.

Rodrigo, not Ricardo. You're not wrong at all, you did understand it very well.
The only thing you forgot is the development framework, which will sit on top of
all these:

|-> gda application interface (CORBA server)
|->gda builder libs (CORBA client)
|------> gda builder apps

I havent't started too much on this, so if lots of people blame me because they
don't want any development stuff (apart from the basic structure Olivier has
very well described), I'll stop what I've done so far. But my idea is to make
gnome-db a complete framework for execution of database-oriented apps, some sort
of application server.
