Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-382) Doc Review: Derby Reference Manual
Date Tue, 28 Jun 2005 19:05:00 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-382?page=comments#action_12314636 ] 

Kathy Saunders commented on DERBY-382:
--------------------------------------

I reviewed functions. data types and expressions.  All of my comments refer to the page numbers
on a printed version of the PDF.

Page 72: 
Keep the list of built-in fuctions in alphabetical order to match the later writeups.  So,
LENGTH should be moved.

Concatenation and CASE expressions are not functions.  The correct place is probably expressions.

Change CURRENT_DATE to CURRENT_DATE or CURRENT DATE

Add CURRENT SCHEMA to the list

Change CURRENT_TIME to CURRENT_TIME or CURRENT TIME

Change CURRENT_TIMESTAMP to CURRENT_TIMESTAMP or CURRENT TIMESTAMP

Page 73: 

The aggregates section has been mixed in with the functions section. They should be seprate.
 So, there should be a section called Built-in funtions with the list that is on page 72 and
73, followed by all of the writeups on each function.  Then, you should have a separate section
called aggregates with the overview on that, followed by the individual writeups on each aggregate.

The table on page 73 has characters in cells that should be blank.

Page 74: Move AVG writeup to aggregate section

Page 81: Move COUNT writeup to aggregate section

Page 82: Move COUNT(*) writeup to aggregate section.

Page 90: Move MAX writeup to aggregate section.

Page 91: Move MIN writeup to aggregate section.

Page 95: Move SUM writeup to aggregate section.

Page 99: Change the paragraph under Buil-In system procedures to something like the following:

Some built-in procedures are not compatible with standard SQL syntax use by other relational
databases.  These procedures can only be used with Derby.

Page 109:

Put the list in alphabetical order to match the writeups.  So, CHAR FOR BIT DATA, VARCHAR
FOR BIT DATA, LONG VARCHAR FOR BIT DATA are out of order

Add BLOB, CLOB and VARCHAR to the list of data types.

Change DOUBLE PRECISION to be DOUBLE PRECISION or DOUBLE

> This issue tracks comments for the Derby Reference Manual. The deadline for posting comments
is Tuesday, June 28, noon Pacific time.
> Some guidelines to follow when posting comments to this issue are:
> - Try to make clear and concise comments about what you want changed whenever possible.
 Provide concrete comments that say "Please change <original> to <modified>" instead
of generic comments like "This section needs to be rewritten."
> - If you're reviewing the HTML Files copy, include the URL for the page in the review
comment. Obtain the URL like this:
>     * highlight the topic in the left frame
>     * right click
>     * choose "Properties"
>     * copy and paste the address in the pop up box.
> - If you're reviewing the PDF copy, in the review comment:
>     * Include the page number for the PDF, and indicate whether the number is the PDF
sheet number or the printed page number.
>     * Include the title of the section that the problem occurs in. If it's in a subsection,
try to include the hierarchy of titles.
> - Please don't review the HTML Book copy -- it'll be time consuming to match up that
copy with the underlying DITA source.
