Subject User Defined Types
Date Wed, 10 Nov 2004 14:36:42 GMT

Sorry to nag, but recently I posed a question fairly recently as to 
whether Cloudscapes user defined types would be re-implemented in Derby, 
as IBM seems to have pulled support for this feature out, presumably to 
bring it more in line with DB2. I haven't heard anything so far - can 
anyone advise as to whether there is any work being done on this?

To recap, I've written a system to support clinical research that makes 
fairly extensive use of user defined types using an older version of 
Cloudscape, and I'm hoping to be able to stay with the evolution of the 
product without a major DB rewrite. Storing/querying Java types directly 
was a very useful feature and I do hope it will be preserved!
