Ah, that explains. I wonder why they developed it with schemas being
mandatory as it is not required in JDBC (and JDBC describes the behavior
when schemas are not present). AFAIK Netbeans simply assumes 'default
schema' (or null) if a database does not support schema's.

I'd like to give it a try, so you can send the code to me.
