Hi Devs,

We've been struggling with a problem for a while now: how do you determine the
output of a SQL query without actually running it?

Turns out that the JDBC spec of PreparedStatement has a getMetaData() method
that allows you to do just that.

I can't for the life of me think of a reason why this has managed to escape my
attention, but it's simply stupid. It even seems to handle parameters etc

Do me a big favor folks, and give the latest trunk a try in which I made a
patch for PDI-481 in revision 5827.
