Instead of copying code from PrepareStatementTest, I'm wondering if we
could rather reuse the code directly by tweaking PrepareStatementTest's
suite() method to run the test cases with a decorator that makes them
use pooled connections. Something along the lines of: 

    TestConfiguration.connectionCPDecorator(new CleanDatabaseTestSetup(
        new TestSuite(PrepareStatementTest.class)))));

There's a helper method JDBC.vmSupportsJDBC4() that can be used to check
if JDBC 4 is supported on the JVM. You could either check it in the
suite() method and only add the test case if it's expected to succeed,
or you could check it at the start of the test case and return early if
it needs to be skipped.

Sometimes, though, the JDBC 4 test cases must be moved to a separate
class, since the test class may not even load on older JVMs if the test
uses classes/methods that don't exist on the older JVM.

If they could be created with some of the existing decorators, I think
that would be preferable. The advantage of using the decorators is that
the new tests won't be limited to running on LogicalStatements and could
test all our classes that implement java.sql.Statement, which gives us
some additional testing. Also, if we use the same test code for all
kinds of statements, we can detect if the different statement
implementations behave differently, which we try to avoid.
