Right, I understood that. I was asking about strategies for managing
this, given that the same code that would create the table, if run a
second time, will wipe out the old index without any warning.
If it isn't clear already, I have very little experience with Java. I'm
a Python fish in a sea of Java coders, however... ;-)
