Pooling uses dynamic proxies which were introduced in 1.3. Also, JCA
part of the driver depends on J2EE classes from JBoss, which in turn
depend, at least, on JNDI classes that are not part of JDK 1.2.2.

Also, driver depends on JAAS, and on Sun site I found compiled version
only for JDK 1.3.x.

Conclusion: things are not so easy as you described. It is possible to
create a stripped version of the driver that will work on 1.1.8, but
not in few days and I don't see any chance of fixing current driver to
compile with 1.1.x and 1.2.x.
