To be consistent with ResultSet.getColumnClassName() in the case of a FLOAT, 
should return "java.lang.Double" not "java.lang.Float"

The behavior of ResultSet.getColumnClassName() is appropriate per Table 9.3 at http://java.sun.com/

How to repeat:
Invoke ResultSetMetaData.getColumnClassName() on a FLOAT

Suggested fix:
    public String getColumnClassName(int column) throws SQLException {


        case Types.REAL:
        case Types.FLOAT:
            return "java.lang.Float";

        case Types.DOUBLE:
            return "java.lang.Double";

should become:

        case Types.REAL:
            return "java.lang.Float";

        case Types.FLOAT:
       case Types.DOUBLE:
            return "java.lang.Double";
