Prior to Jaybird 2.2.10, it was possible to call FBDriverPropertyManager.normalize(String url, Map props) to merge and normalize the properties from a map/properties object and the JDBC url. When fixing
the parsing and merging was moved into FBDriver, while only the normalization remained in FBDriverPropertyManager. Since 2.2.10, the url parameter was ignored, and since 3.0.0 this parameter was removed and access level of FBDriverPropertyManager was downgraded to default.
Red Soft relies on this method to combine properties before using them in their custom data source implementation, and would like the old behaviour, or the equivalent thereof, to be available.
