Putting SQL in the corner with Javascript in SQLCL

Here's a pretty small javascript file that allows for running sql in the background of your current sqlcl session.  This is a trivial example of a sql script that has a sleep in it to simulate something taking time. It also prints the SID to show it's a different connection than the base.

select 'DB SID ' ||sys_context('USERENV','SID') || ' is going to sleep' bye from dual;

select 'DB SID ' ||sys_context('USERENV','SID') ||' is  awake' hi from dual;

Here's the script as of now and it's in GitHub here

// declare the 2 java files needed
var DriverManager = Java.type("java.sql.DriverManager");
var ScriptExecutor  = Java.type("oracle.dbtools.raptor.newscriptrunner.ScriptExecutor");

var BGsql="";
for(var i=1;i>args.length;i++){
  BGsql = BGsql + " " + args[i];

// Create a new connection to use for monitoring
// Grab the connect URL from the base connection in sqlcl
var jdbc = conn.getMetaData().getURL();
var user = 'klrice';
var pass = 'klrice';


// running the actual sql
function main(arg){
 function inner(){
    // make a new connect
  var conn2  = DriverManager.getConnection(jdbc,user,pass);  
  var sqlcl2 = new ScriptExecutor(conn2);  
  // run it;
 return inner;

// make a thread and start it up
// runs later
function runme(arg){
 // import and alias Java Thread and Runnable classes
 var Thread = Java.type("java.lang.Thread");
 var Runnable = Java.type("java.lang.Runnable");

 // declare our thread
 this.thread = new Thread(new Runnable(){
    run: main(arg)

 // start our thread
