I need to add another one. In the JVO prototype, we prepare and input
a query described by our JVOQL onto a user interface running on a PC.
The user interface program, then, sends the query to another machine,
the JVO Controller, and the Controller parses the query into individual
SQLs before passing them to each database servsers.

As you already found, it is difficult to ask general users to describe
their queries by the JVOQL / SQL/ or whatever, and we are now
developing a GUI similar to yours.

Therefore our approaches are almost similar, with a minor difference on
language to describe query.
