I've moved this message to the user list as somebody else may have
ecperience with the simple text driver.

In 1.2beta4 you can specify driver properties in the alias definition.
This only works for JDBC drivers that can be interrogated for their
properties, I don't know if this will work with the Simple Text driver.
If it doesn't you can probably pass the property in the URL string,
you'll need to check the driver documentation to see the syntax. In
MySQL for example you can pass properties using ? and &
Something similar may work for the Simple text driver.

I'm pretty sure that Sun make a test suite for JDBC drivers. Try a
search on the javaSoft site.
