-Users do not need to change anything for this change. If more thread dump information is
required for errors that have severity level less than session error, the property derby.stream.error.extendedDiagSeverityLevel
can be set. Please refer to <a href="http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.7/devguide/cdevsetprop16827.html">Derby
system property</a> For example, if there is a deadlock issue and users would like to
see thread dump information while the deadlock is happening, users can then set derby.stream.error.extendedDiagSeverityLevel=30000.
The diagnostics and the thread dump information is found in the Derby error log. derby.stream.error.extendedDiagSeverityLevel=30000
means that extra diagnostics and thread dump will be activated for errors with severity equal
to or higher than transaction severity (30000). Please consult the Derby documentation for
explanation of error severity and for other possible settings of extenedDiagSeverityLevel.
