because it's been done as people come across the need. Thus it would be 
good if you could move the code to junit package in the JDBC class.

Another issue is that at some point the base for trunk will change to 
J2ME/CDC/Foundation 1.1 (see DERBY-2210) which does have BigDecimal but 
does not have set/getBigDecimal.

This will change so that
   set/getObject() will return a BigDecimal for a DECIMAL column
   DECIMAL values can be passed into routines

So it might be worth converting the test assuming the above and just 
don't run it on J2ME for now. Add a comment to DERBY-2210 that such a 
test should be enabled once it is addressed.
