I am working with an as400 database as far as I can tell the only jdbc driver in existence for that database is the IBM Toolbox for Java driver ( There is one other driver ( but it's only for stuff that runs directly on the database os.
This driver works fine, except when we started using hibernate with c3p0 for connection pooling/management, we get an error that says:

Thankfully the error is not fatal, but still I was wondering if anoyone knows of an alternative driver that would support this function and not cause this error.
