Optimize client side LOB release mechanism by reducing the number of round-trips

                 Key: DERBY-3575
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3575
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Network Client
    Affects Versions:,
            Reporter: Kristian Waagan
            Assignee: Kristian Waagan
            Priority: Minor

The current mechanism for freeing LOB locators from the client driver, is to invoke a stored
procedure for each LOB locator every time the result set position is changed. This can potentially
result in a number of round-trips to the server.

The mechanism can easily be optimized by adding a stored procedure that takes a list of LOB
locators and frees them all. The level of optimization can be tweaked by changing the timing
of the stored procedure invocation, and this must also be balanced with regards to resource
consumption on the server. The more LOB locators we collect on the client before we send the
release request, the more memory is bound to LOB resources on the server.

Possible release points:
 * on each result set positioning
 * when a threshold value is reached
 * on result set close
 * when Blob/Clob.free is called (problematic, as the Blob/Clob is detached from the result

There are some compatibility issues to consider, and the client driver will most likely have
to implement both the naive and the optimized mechanism. For this reason, it might be good
if the release mechanism can be tightly encapsulated (for instance within LOBStateTracker).

Note that piggy-backing the locators would be the most effective solution, but it is likely
that implementing it requires more time and thus I'm reluctant to do so this close to the
release. I'm saying this because we do need a fix to go into 10.4.
