JDBC Connector : Invalid handling of UNSIGNED integers

Description

In short, the JDBC connector fails to handle the extended range of UNSIGNED integers. Tested in LibreOffice, previously reported bug to them, they say it is NOTOURBUG. See report:

https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=88601

Short description: UNSIGNED Tinyint has value 0 to 255 but JDBC connector does not handle/report values 128 to 255 correctly. They are communicated erroneously or as negative numbers. Reporting here because LibreOffice says not their bug.

Same behavior identified in MySQL JDBC connector.

Environment
