Just to be picky, do you actually see 'INTEGER' anywhere, or just 'integer'?

I would see SQL BIGINT, Types.BIGINT and long as all of type integer.

Because if 'integer' means only SQL INTEGER or Types.INTEGER, then the
numeric functions floor and mod should not work against BIGINT values.

I'd always assummed that these types in appendix C of JDBC 3.0 meant:

integer - any integral type
float - any imprecise type
number - any number type
