I'd like to use the same property names to configure my own
DataSourceFactory, which is basically identical to
PropertyDataSourceFactory, but uses the tomcat-jdbc connection pooling.
 The use of properties to configure the data source is somewhat orthogonal
to the choice connection pool implementation.

Since DelegatingDataSourceFactory is only meant to switch between the
Property or XML factory then it should only do that, so I'd like to add

    protected boolean shouldConfigureDataSourceFromProperties(
            DataNodeDescriptor nodeDescriptor) {

 .class.getName().equals(nodeDescriptor.getDataSourceFactoryType()))) {
return false;
