It can be done somewhat generically, with the service either having
custom configuration methods for each DBMS, or alternately having a
generic method that returns a configuration POJO structured for the

It can also be done similar to how Apache Camel does it, with a fully
configurable URI; the required driver would be the resource type, and
whatever values are needed can be specified as URI parameters.  Of
course, Camel has an endpoint pool and a locator to connect user to

For a first-pass solution, I think I'd go with the POJO.
