  • The driver sometimes returns fewer rows than expected if the JVM is running low on memory, even though no errors are reported.

  • ORDER BY queries that contain subqueries are translated incorrectly.

  • In certain situations, the driver returns a different ResultSet column name depending on whether UseNativeQuery is enabled or disabled.

  • If allowHostNameMismatch is set to 0, the driver does not compare the host name and the common name of the SSL server

  • If allowSelfSignedCert is set to 1, the driver does not verify the SSL certificate.
