Since I've never used the Hsqldb DataSource (I always use DBCP with
Hsqldb), I can only guess here, but looking at the code, its either
that the data source does not return a connection (but does not throw
a SQL exception either as it is supposed to do), or that the
connection does not return a metadata object (and does not throw a SQL
exception either as it is supposed to do).
Either way, could you try this with DBCP instead of the Hsqldb data
source just to see whether it works then ?
