DB2/LINUXPPC64 not supported by the Activiti workflow engine

Description

At a customer we are running Activiti on a IBM PowerPC (DB2/LINUXPPC64). Activiti does not support this database type. When starting up the Activiti REST API I get the exception: couldn't deduct database type from database product name: "DB2/LINUXPPC64".

There is nothing special about this database type although it is not that common. I checked out the Activiti sources (5.17) and fixed this just by adding the line to the ProcessEngineConfigurationImpl class:

databaseTypeMappings.setProperty("DB2/LINUXPPC64",DATABASE_TYPE_DB2);

Compiled it and deployed it and worked like a charm ! Porblem now is that I need to add this line each time I update Activiti.

Could this line be added to the sources, version 5.18 ?

Thanks,

Tom.
