On performance of JDBC drivers.

Back when the first version of the MariaDB Java Client was released, someone asked in the comments about the performance characteristics of the driver compared to ConnectorJ. I answered with hand-waving, saying that nobody does anything stupid, the performance of the drivers would be roughly the same, but I promised to measure it and tell the world one day.

  • Implement tcpAbortiveClose option, for “hard” socket close (CONJ-27)
