It might do, but as the documentation for DatabaseMetaData.getTables 
doesn't define what happens for a null tableNamePattern argument, it 
would be better not to rely on this. Odd though given that null is 
explicitly mentioned for all the other parameters. I seem to remember 
that some JDBC drivers throw an exception if you use a null 
tableNamePattern parameter.
