Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (DERBY-334) Add initial SQL support for XML datatype/functions in Derby, based on SQL/XML specs.
Date Thu, 09 Jun 2005 18:41:50 GMT
On the similar lines, I also think the XML support should turn itself
OFF gracefully in environments that don't support XML. I think the patch
requires JDK 1.4 or higher, so unless Derby has plans to end_of_line JDK
1.3 (not sure if there is a plan), it may be a good idea to turn off XML
internally. (Raise error when attempted to use)

I plan to test this part and provide comments along with a few other items.
