+1, I'll have a look at it once I got the time.

IMO the current solution is simpler (jdbc properties for the specific
databases). In my experience, it is a lot more difficult to administer
user and rights for databases than to edit jdbc properties files. With
a properties file, a user that wishes to execute the unit tests
against a particular database simply edits the corresponding
properties file (driver classname, url, username, password etc.) and
then runs the Ant task. And we need a properties file for each
database anyway, because the urls and drivers are always different.
