Thanks David and Youval.
You're right, I used 1.3.59 version (downloaded from eclipse software update) and dumped logs since (and deleted mysqltest project). I'll try with 1.44 and report any problem (if any).
I noticed that eclipse with 1.44 also comes with it's own Tersus server, clever!
Speaking about mysql (the reason I was testing external server):
I read that mysql connector was slow regarding HSQL(DB) but I wonder if you can model database deeply in HSQL like in MySQL below??
