comment How to open a desktop application through browser without a Java applet?
+1 It works. I have done it. In my case from the web me had to pass some data to a remote desktop app. We creates a file with the data, gave it a particular extension, then client-side associated that extension with our remote desktop app, so every time such a file is downloaded, the client machine opens the file with our app. Out app then reads the connection info from the file and stablishes the connection.

comment Low coupling when using sealed classes?
You mean decoupling the "sealed" classes among them or decoupling your code form the "sealed" classes?

comment How to make variables inherent to an object or system
Your brain checks every time whether your arm is attached and functional, you simply don't think about it because this checking is several stack layers deep. When you move your arm you are simply calling an API perfected by millions of years of evolution. You are just abstracted from the details.

comment is there a cleaner / simpler way to code this?
+1 Great! I always had to write logic to either concatenate the WHERE keyword or not, depending on the values but it's easier and cleaner this way.

I wrote an update to my question about successfully storing the string "TOO MUCH" into a numeric colum. Automatic conversion would insert zero. Also this is the first relational database implementation that I know that would allow that. I've worked with MSSQLServer, Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MS Acces, DBase, Foxbase, COBOL and Sybase SQL Anywhere.
