The code for DbImpl.enlist(TableConst table, List<KeyPart> keyParts) apparently alerts people to an incomplete implementation by writing to STDOUT:

        } else if (keyParts.size() > 1) {
            // TODO enable this code once startTransaction with multiple key parts supported
... more comments ...
            System.out.println("DbImpl.enlist(): Multiple key parts are not supported... yet.");
            NdbTransaction result = ndb.startTransaction(null, null, 0);
            handleError (result, ndb);
            return result;

I don't know whether this will also always generate an Exception or not, or how to exercise this to test, but perhaps a a java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException error would be appropriate, here?  I hate to imagine that we're actually doing something different, and just writing to STDOUT that it isn't implemented.

How to repeat:
Not sure, see above.

Suggested fix:
Don't use System.out.println() to alert users to incomplete feature implementations.

Changed System.out.println to logger.debug for multiple partition keys
