Since DataSource is the only connection mechanism for JSR169 it seems 
wise that as much testing as possible is performed for J2ME of data sources.

I think you are on the correct path, a data source test that runs as 
much as possible against J2ME and then additional testing in J2SE/J2EE.

For Junit tests having one test extend the other doesn't make much 
sense, instead I think three test classes could exist.

SimpleDataSourceTest - tests for functionality that 
EmbeddedSimpleDataSource and EmbeddedDataSource have in common.

DataSourceTest - tests specific to ClientDataSource and 

J2EEDataSourceTest - Testing of XA and connection pooling

It's possible the DataSourceTest and J2EEDataSourceTest  could be combined.

J2ME would run SimpleDataSourecTest only
J2SE/J2EE platforms would run all three classes.
