AIUI DRDAServerStarter implements ModuleControl which allows it to be 
loaded and started based on info in modules.properties. The lifecyle is 
something like:
* construct service using no-arg constructor
* invoke boot()
* service initializes itself

The classname is defined in modules.properties but there is nothing that 
sets up a classpath so I would assume the class named needs to be 
available via the engine's classloader or the TCCL.

The implementation of DRDAServerStarter loads the serverClassName 
(hardcoded to NetworkServerControlImpl) using Class.forName() and then 
instantiates it and invokes it via reflection.

I think we get the equivalent behaviour by having the Monitor load the 
NetworkServerControlImpl directly; alternatively we could have JDBCBoot 
start it up explicitly.
