Subject Character set in url
Author David Warnock

I have been adding Firebird support via Jaybird to
ObJectRelationalBridge (OJB) which is part of the Apache Jakarta project
(well just moving into the new Apache DB project).

My problem is that like so many other tools it simply uses
DriverManager.getConnection(url, user, password) so I cannot pass the
character set in a properties object.

I vaguely remember a discussion about supporting the lc_type in the url
to get around this problem. Did anything happen about that? I looked in
the source and could see no tests of a character set passed as part of
the url.
