Most of these tests are, deliberately, canon-less assertion-based tests, 
which, as you note, would be natural fits for JUnit. You're right about 
why these weren't coded under JUnit: the framework wasn't in place yet. 
It would be good to migrate these to JUnit, but that wasn't my itch 
here. I just wanted to fix the framework problem so that people could 
add new tests that follow our usual conventions.

You're right, this will be a problem when these tests are converted to

Dunno. It just works for me. If you've got a moment, could you 
test-drive these changes in your environment to verify I haven't broken 
the jdbc4 tests for you? For the record, I'm running with jdk1.6 build 76.
