It needs to be documented that this is an optional method, and the
documentation must include a @throws SQLFeatureNotSupportedException to
that effect. The default implementation should throw
Addition of this to ConnectionBuilder, also warrants the question if a
similar method should be added to javax.sql.CommonDataSource (although
maybe lifetime of credentials are a factor here)
Also, looking at ConnectionBuilder, shouldn't it extend java.sql.Wrapper
(eg to 'unwrap' to implementation specifics)?
BTW: In what form will these changes land, is there a JDBC 4.4 in the
works, or will these just be an update to the API without a formal JDBC
