Out of curiosity, what kind of trouble is it causing? If the method
signatures cause trouble when the class is loaded, why isn't that the
case for TestUtil?

The methods don't add significant value, so I think it's OK to remove
them from BaseJDBCTestCase and let the JUnit tests use the
corresponding methods in TestUtil instead. If it is possible, we
should try to keep getDefaultDataSourceProperties().
