Subject JayBird and JBoss

Reading last message digest i found that some people have a problems
using firebird-ds.xml in JBoss 3.2, that I had some time ago. So this
message I'll address to developers, who have access to JBoss CVS and can
change buggy firebird-ds.xml.

1. Add to all commented elements (Encoding, etc.) attribute
type="java.lang.String". Without them service crashes with exception:
java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: 0

2. jboss-ql allows defining additional functions in
standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml. It would be great to add there some firebird
functions definitions (ucase as upper, etc). Some type mappings (Oracle,
for example) has it, so why firebird has not?
