Subject [DBCP] Confusing versioning numbering
Date Wed, 27 Apr 2011 13:05:39 GMT
All Commons components other than DBCP have at most one current
version per major release (e.g. NET has 1.4.1 and 2.2).

DBCP uses a different versioning scheme from all other components:

DBCP 1.4 for JDBC 4 (JDK 1.6)
DBCP 1.3 for JDBC 3 (JDK 1.4-1.5)

This is rather confusing.

Seems to me it would be better to move to a naming scheme that did not
rely on the minor version number to distinguish JDBC versions.

Instead of

commons-dbcp-1.3-bin.zip
commons-dbcp-1.4-bin.zip

perhaps we should have

commons-dbcp-2.0-jdbc3-bin.zip
commons-dbcp-2.0-jdbc4-bin.zip

or

commons-dbcp-jdbc3-2.0-bin.zip
commons-dbcp-jdbc4-2.0-bin.zip

[It does not help that the README.html file only describes the 1.4
release; I'll fix that]
