This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Please post the exception. If the bridge/driver doesn't support it, there's not much you can do. You either have to update/replace the drive or write code that doesn't use database specific functionality (by writing better tailored queries perhaps). I opt for the second since it makes your code more robust.
