JDBC 4.0 is addressing this with the sub-classing of SQLException.
So with the product as is, (before JDBC 4.0) what is the recommended way
to check if an exception makes a connection invalid.  Currently I know
there are users that are using the error codes (Exception Severity)?

The errorcode is documented as severity for embedded.
