 The getSQLState method is perfectly fine with me, I was mislead when I
old posts on the web that said  that error codes were not supported at the
server level.
I had first tried using the getErrorCode because all other drivers I have
use this method. I guess making the getSQLState documentation easy available

would be the first thing to do.
