Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-289) Enable code sharing between Derby client and engine
Date Fri, 15 Jul 2005 16:40:36 GMT


Isn't the "right" way to handle different versions of the same code in
one VM to use classloaders? I know in one product we have internally,
we cater for upgrades in this way. Don't app servers do this as well,
to insulate apps' use of libraries? Two different versions of the
client driver inside one VM would need to be handled in this way, so
when embedded (v2) and client (v1) works without any such measure
p.t., it doesn't really solve all use cases anyway..?

RH(> I confess I'm still puzzled. It seems to me there may be two separate issues here:
1) the interoperability of different derby versions across a network and 2) the coherence
of derby code running in a single VM. I'm all in favor of interoperability. But mixing and
matching derby versions in the same VM puzzles  me. I wonder whether we are talking about
an edge case here. Is that edge case worth not sharing utility libraries across derby?

code and is used by both the client and the engine.
