Description
"urgent data" not being supported in NIO is actually a major concern for the JDBC drivers as the Oracle network protocol uses it to cancel a long running RPC (sql execution, AQ dequeue call, XA transaction commit, etc.). Basically it prevents us from using NIO in the JDBC thin driver because the driver has to support cancel.
