Minor improvement so that ID.isJDBC() method also checks the URL protocol field to determine if ID refers to a database

@nprigour Can you describe a scenario if the id wouldnt start with jdbc while protocol could be jdbc? I'm not sure but if the first is true the second statement isn't required. If the first is false the second should either, shouldn't it?

ID provides various constructors which do not necessary guarantee that id value is always derived from the URL. Moreover the GeoResource implementation provided for different databases do not directly use the jdbc URL passed during creation of java JDBC connection. To give an example with such IDs produced fot Postgres and Mysql when using the default implementations provided by UDIG:

  • Postgres --> example id value jdbc.postgis://postgres@localhost:5432/db_name#testbed
  • Mysql --> example id value mysql.jdbc://user:psswd@localhost:3306/db_name#test_1 (see also attached screenshot)
    In the mysql case it is evident that id does not start with jdbc
