Subject Type system notes
Date Fri, 18 Feb 2005 18:00:16 GMT

Inspired by Dibyendu I thought I would add some notes about the Derby
type system, since that's where I have been working for the last few
weeks for JSR 169. Though I wasn't motivated enough to write in XML for
Forrest, I added the information as a package.html in ipai.types
directory, so it would be picked up by the engine javadoc.

As Dibyendu pointed out, there is a lot of information in the existing
javadoc, close to the code where I think design docs should be. The java
doc can be created by exexcuting the top level ant target javadoc.

cd ${derby.source}
ant javadoc

This then creates javadoc in


The complete engine javadoc can be accessed through


Hopefully at some point this javadoc can ben generated automatically and
added to the site.

Adding more package files would be a great goal for Derby, and I think
that Dibyendu's documents should be linked to from various store

Here is a direct link to the types' package.html, from svn.
