That sounds complicated. What about if you use a 'wrapper driver' that
allows you to use use the standard way to get a connection? Like this:

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.DriverPropertyInfo;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.util.Properties;

public class Wrapper implements java.sql.Driver {

    private static final Wrapper INSTANCE = new Wrapper();
    private static final String PREFIX = "jdbc:wrapper:";

    static {
        try {
        } catch (SQLException e) {

    public boolean acceptsURL(String url) throws SQLException {
        return url != null && url.startsWith(PREFIX);

    public Connection connect(String url, Properties info) throws SQLException {
        if (!acceptsURL(url)) {
            return null;
        url = "jdbc:" + url.substring(PREFIX.length());
        // or open a connection in some other way
        Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url, info);
        // unlock ...
        return conn;

    public int getMajorVersion() {
        return 1;

    public int getMinorVersion() {
        return 0;

    public DriverPropertyInfo[] getPropertyInfo(String url, Properties
prop) throws SQLException {
        return new DriverPropertyInfo[0];

    public boolean jdbcCompliant() {
        return true;
