Agreed that it the setting won't be effective if they don't use prepared statements. Therefore,
the setting name should reflect this restriction.

I'm not sure what Chris is referring to. You are right, Java has no support for named parameters,
even in Java 8. Chris might be thinking of Hibernate or Spring's JdbcTemplate, which permit
using named parameters. Ultimately, these get converted to indexed parameters before the query
is actually executed.
