Are you trying to serve SNPs from an ensembl-format SNP
database?  There is some code to do this, based on the
RefSNP and Hit tables of an ensembl database, in the
ensembl-das jar.  It hasn't been used for a while, though,
and I think the schema has changed slightly in the mean
time.  But if this is the sort of thing you're looking for,
it should be easy to fix the existing code.
