Hi Yanming Zhou,

Thank you very much for your contribution.

We can't do what you are suggesting. De-registering the Connector/J driver doesn't mean existing connections can't continue being used. If the Abandoned Connection Cleanup thread is shutdown here we stop monitoring connections still active, thus, defeating its purpose. OTOH, the driver can be re-registered, but the cleanup thread wouldn't be re-spawned.

For the above reasons, I'm sorry but we can't accept your patch.
