Is there any reason you can't use the functionality in the
java.sql.DatabaseMetadata interface? If you use that, you shouldn't have
to know _anything_ about the internal structure of any JDBC-compliant
database to get the information you need to create a database diagram,
as it's all done through _standard_ method calls.
