Subject JDBC setCatalog(..)
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2001 15:49:38 GMT
Oracle has "Schemas", DB2 has "Collections".

JDBC supports setCatalog(String) with the following javadocs :

     * Sets a catalog name in order to select
     * a subspace of this Connection's database in which to work.
     * If the driver does not support catalogs, it will
     * silently ignore this request.

Is that the correct way to indicate "sub database" namespace? I.e. 
equivalent to the two proprietary terms above.  Should AvalonDB support 
setCatalog() and call it's Schema equivalent "Catalog" or not?

Opinions from those with varied SQL & DB experience sought....
