This is embarrassing. I just realised when, I was loading up my gleaming new white MacBook, that Maven wouldn't run on any Mac other the one I had developed it on.
I screwed up the path settings for the database connectivity frameworks that I embed into Maven, so the application couldn't find them when it's loaded on another Mac. That's why Maven wouldn't run. But I've fixed it now in version 0.3.1 beta.
In this version, I've fixed some more bugs, and you can enter, modify, add or delete database records on any of the three currently supported databases - SQLite3, PostgreSQL 8.1 and MySQL5. I've made sure to test all three databases by now.
I'm now working on the ability to alter any of the table structures on any of these databases, e.g., to add or delete fields, indices, and constraints. To make all three databases work like they're the same to a Mac user, even though they're all quite different from each other in myriad ways - that's going to be the challenge.
