It's been mentioned before, but a set of error numbers for database errors
would make trapping exceptions and dealing with them gracefully a LOT
simpler. I have java code that runs against Oracle, Informix, PostgreSQL,
MS SQL Server and Cloudscape. All(?) the others have an error code as well
as an error message and it's a lot easier to get the error code.

Of course, they all have *different* error codes for the same error (ie
primary key violation). Nothing is ever simple.
