Subject SQL/DDL Limitations (and DB2)
Date Sat, 18 Sep 2004 19:47:19 GMT
There are a few artificial constraints (1) imposed on Derby, possibly  
in the interest of making the DDL/SQL/etc exactly compatible with DB2  
compared to prior versions of Cloudscape. In at least some cases (2)  
these constraints are different from the SQL spec, and older versions  
of Cloudscape (3)

While I understand that the IBM developers may not be in a position to  
undo these changes, is there any *technical* reason to limit Derby in  
this way? If not, will patches submitted to undo these limitations be  
accepted?
