Why another DB frontend?

I was tired of searching for an free, easy to use, command line tool for copying data accross various databases. I didn't wanted to provided everytime all the "necessary" information bevor i could start, like mapping, data conversion, running as batch, handling of not assignable data and so on, when I simply wanted to copy some tables with data from on to another database. So I wrote a small Java program to be able to do exactly just this.

The scope of this project now is, to provide an even more simple interface to this tool with using the plugin technology of the Eclipse Development Platform.
