I have a 3rd party application that exposes in-memory data structures via a JDBC api over RMI.

How can I get data out of that database api without having to run squirrel or similar GUI application?

Perl solution preferred, but java solution acceptable.

where does the rmi:// part come in? is it really transparent to me? – ericslaw Apr 14 '10 at 12:00
Does it have to be over RMI? I was guessing you could access it directly over JDBC. – moshen Apr 14 '10 at 16:26
It actually must be over RMI because it's a java application I'm talking to, not a real database. – ericslaw May 19 '10 at 12:27
