You can set the processname, but it is not possible to pass this in the
connection string itself. To get Jaybird to pass a process name, you need
to set the *system* property org.firebirdsql.jdbc.processName, eg by
passing -Dorg.firebirdsql.jdbc.processName="<processid>" on the commandline
used to start your application (or somewhere in the startup scripts of your
applicationserver). This is documented in the Jaybird 2.1.6 releasenotes
(section What's new in Jaybird 2.1.6). A similar option is available for
the pid.

BTW: There is a separate mailinglist for questions on Jaybird:
