Kevin Sutter commented on OPENJPA-5:

Oops...  We have so many of these JDBC 4 type Issues that I screwed up with my 
earlier comment.  :-)  I should have been referencing this Issue (OPENJPA-5) as 
the "make it buildable" Issue.  And, the OPENJPA-6 should be the "exploitable" 
Issue.  But, maybe Marc is right.  OPENJPA-6 could be used to make the 
Connection objects returned by OpenJPA more JDBC like.  And, then create a 
totally separate Issue for exploiting new JDBC 4 features.  I'll do that.

> OpenJPA doesn't compile with JDBC 4

>                 Key: OPENJPA-5
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OPENJPA-5
>             Project: OpenJPA
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Craig Russell
> Patrick opines:
> OpenJPA implements Statement, ResultSet, Connection, and maybe a
> couple other JDBC interfaces. See
> org.apache.openjpa.lib.jdbc.Delegating*. We do this for a number of
> reasons: to resolve database-specific bugs in a transparent fashion, to
> provide logging, to handle reference counting, etc.
> The pressing issue is that we must provide implementations of all of the
> methods in the various java.sql interfaces. The fact that we do not
> implement the new JDBC4 methods is why OpenJPA won't currently compile
> against JDK6. This is pretty easy to fix; take a look at
> org.apache.openjpa.lib.jdbc.DelegatingStatement to see how we handled
> this for JDBC3. Since we know that we never invoke the new methods, we
> can happily throw unsupported operation exceptions for the new methods.
> However, these unsupported methods do provide a challenge. While Kodo
> doesn't use any of these methods, our mechanism for implementing them is
> limiting, in that users who obtain Connections from Kodo will not be
> able to use the new JDBC3/JDBC4 methods in their own code. Ideally, we
> should provide some means for people to designate to OpenJPA that it
> should use a dynamic proxy to implement the unimplemented methods. This
> shouldn't be the default behavior, as the dynamic proxy will add
> overhead, but certainly could be desirable for some. I'll file an issue.
