Improved RCP Enablement
Improve the enablement in DTP for the creation of RCP-based data access tooling. One of the oldest open requests since DTP started has been for the creation of a stand-alone RCP tool for database development. We have some enhancements in this area (developed with the help of Ingres) we want to get into DTP. These enhancements will "incubate" for a while and won't be part of the regular build, but will be available for user to try out and extend.
Improved Result Set Handling in the Open Data Access Framework
Enhance the ODA API to support specifying dynamic result set operations and handle additional result set types.
Continuing Quality Improvements
Continue fixing important bugs as identified by the participating companies and the DTP community.
