During Server Start, the initial connections for a JDBC connection pool are created. If there is a problem with the
database that causes the connections to hang, the server start can take a very long time. In order to limit the time
spent on waiting for new connections during server start, a new property for the JDBC drivers should be implemented,
that sets a timeout value for how long one connection creation can take before it is stopped.

This value is currently set to 0, which means WLS waits until the socket connection times out. This may be very long
and customer cannot configure the TCP kernel parameter specially for this problem because of other systems running on
this machine.
