    Unanswered: Squirrel JDBC - cannot run "desc <tablename>"

    Hi Guys,
    I'm new to Squirrel - hope some of you use it. I'm connecting to an Oracle DB, with JDBC (tried a lot of versions). But every time I trow a "desc <table>", I get a ORA-00900: invalid SQL statement.
    Does anybody know if this relates to how JDBC works? What should I do to solve it?
    Thanks in advance,

    DESC[RIBE] is a SQL*Plus command.

    Use SQL*Plus
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
