Alternative proposal (worked for me in the past in similar situations):

Create the instances of Connection, Statement, etc. using
java.lang.reflect.Proxy, with a suitable InvocationHandler. The instances
generated by Proxy are implementing the runtime version of the respective
interface, hence no compatibility problems. The InvocationHandler doesn't
implement anything, hence can adjust its behaviour at runtime to the proper
JDBC version.
