Well, I could add something that uses the failOnError attribute to
this purpose (or a similar new one defined): if no connection was
found and failOnError=true, then an error is reported and the task
stops. If failOnError=false, then an empty database would be assumed
(which is the same effect as alterDatabase=false). Could you add an
issue to JIRA for this ?
