This is an incorrect assumption.  Just because PGConnection implements 
Connection, it doesn't mean what DBCP is giving you is an instance of 

Evidently ds.getConnection() is handing you back an instance of 
which implements Connection, but *is not* an instance of PGConnection, 
hence the ClassCastException.  I don't use DBCP, but from the name 
"PoolGuardConnectionWrapper", it would seem there's an instance of 
PGConnection inside this object, to which the wrapper object delegates.
