The Proxyserver is used to make SSL-Secured SQL-request to any database, that has a JDBC-Driver.
The goal was to develop a server, that works as a proxy server, to
forward SQL-Queries using SSL. The server was supposed to be mostly
platform independent, and after some considerations, Java was the
language of choice. The proxy-server accepts SSL-secured connections
over TCP/IP, and reads the request using a specified protocol.
Then the proxy-server uses a JDBC-Driver to connect to the database
and forward the query, getting the result and transfer the result
back to the client via SSL.
The JDBC-Driver has to be choosen in a configuration file, so it should not matter, wether you use MySQL, Oracle, DB2, PostgreSQL, Informix, Microsoft SQL-Server or any other database, that has a JDBC-Driver, except the certain database-specific differences in the support for certain features of the SQL-language.
Right now the server can be used, but not with comfort. One thing that has to be done, is to implement a jdbc-interface for this proxyserver. But right now I do not know anybody who has use for such a server and also for a jdbc-interface to it, and so I will not work on it anymore. Nevertheless, if you think, you need it, then drop me a mail, and if I find the time, I will implement the JDBC-Interface. I would also appreciate a mail, if you find these pieces of code useful at all.
To use the SSL-SQL-Proxy Server, you will need the following:
