Review request for 7192302 Remove JDBCRowSetImpl dependency on java.beans

As the comment noted, the connect method was made protected for Rave 
requirement but it's not defined in JdbcRowSet and BaseRowSet.  It's a 
method specific to the RI and changing it to private is okay if they get 
an JdbcRowSet instance by calling the rowset factory.  Alan's question 
prompts me to look if anyone references JdbcRowSetImpl directly - I find 
that the javax.sql.rowset.JdbcRowSet spec has the example to instantiate 
JdbcRowSetImpl.  Is it still a supported or recommended way?  If so, 
there is a potential compatibility risk; otherwise, it'd be good to 
update the spec to remove reference to JdbcRowSetImpl.
