"trust" has nothing to do with "ident" authentication, trust does not do
any authentication at all and just lets you in.  Using ident
authentication can be a little tricky with JDBC simply because it uses
tcp/ip to connect as opposed to unix sockets.  On the server side these
use different code paths for ident authentication with unix sockets
requiring kernel support for passing user information and tcp/ip sockets
requiring an ident server.

In any case the JDBC driver works fine with both trust and ident 
authentication, as far as I know the only authentication method that are 
unsupported by the JDBC driver is kerberos.
