What do we do with DBCP?

a) There will be a new release in Apache Commons

b) Require "patch" tool as prerequisite
(It needs to be explicitly installed and configured on Windows)
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=54522

c) Make DBCP optional,  e.g. introduce "skip.dbcp" property like
existing "skip.installer" one.

d) Drop DBCP pool

I am currently using a variant of "c)" by setting "no.build.dbcp=true"
(thus fooling an up-to-date check), but an explicit and documented
property would be better.


Best regards,
Konstantin Kolinko
