Subject Re: JDBC driver error codes documentation, where?

One thing to watch out for is that you need the trailing ";". One would 
think that the semi-colon would only act as a delimiter, but, you need it at 
the end of the URL as well.

You have my vote for making the verbose error messages default to on. Having 
them off by default is user/developer hostile IMHO.
