I cannot give you an answer on your question, but it makes me curious as to why you mention it is not stable. Can you explain what is not stable in jconnector.
Furhter if you cannot find another one you can always override / rewrite it, since the code is included in the jar.

have a nice one

What version of Connector/J are you using? I've used it in applications that do moderate traffic and haven't run into any real problems. The 3.0.11 version, available here seem to be very stable.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
