DataDirect jdbc driver for mongodb support balanced string

Then this idea stems from the fact that the customer wanted to connect to mongodb through our jdbc driver, however their mongodb team provided him with a balanced string with a replicaset parameter that allows you to replicate data on the affected hosts. So our jdbc driver driver can not only support a host and a port but the replicaset parameter must be explicit in the string. This improvement must take place as there are already other drivers on the market that support multiple hosts, multiple ports and the replicaset parameter can be specified.
