Subject Derby vs Cloudscape Features
Date Tue, 19 Oct 2004 17:21:39 GMT
I've been using Cloudscape since 1997 and have found it very useful. I 
was happy to see that it would become an Apache project, but I noticed 
that an IBM announcement mentioned that features not compatible with DB2 
would be pulled so as to make a hypothetical transition from Derby to 
DB2 smoother.

One of Cloudscape's unusual features was the ability to store/retrieve 
an instance of a Java object directly, and the ability to query the 
object's getters in place in the DB without having to drag the whole 
thing back into the program for inspection. Very handy! Does this 
feature disappear in Derby?
