Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-254) SQLStates for SQLExceptions thrown from the client should not be null and should match embedded where possible

Comment moved from wiki 

Hi, Tomohito. I am dealing with the null SQL states in the client driver as part of my work
on internationalizing the messages. I think it makes a lot of sense for the SQL states to
match between network client and embedded client. I noticed, for instance, test code that
did something like: 

if ( client driver is embedded )
  look for SQL State NNNN
  look for SQL State YYYY
end if
This seems silly. 

What I am doing (we'll see if people have comments on this) is defining a new severity for
exceptions thrown by the network client. Since the exception severity is mapped to the SQLException
error code, the application programmer can check the error code to determine if it's a network
client exception. 

The other way they can distinguish is to see what the instance of the class is. It will be
an instance of org.apache.derby.impl.jdbc.EmbedSQLException if it came from the embedded driver,
and an instance of org.apache.derby.client.am.SqlException if it comes from the network client.

I think we should keep the SQL states (and the error messages) identical where the error is
identical between the network client and the engine. 

Also, I would like to recommend that this discussion be moved to or linked to from the JIRA
issue around SQL states --  DERBY-254

> SQLExceptions generated from the client tend to have a null SQLState.  An evaluation
of the SQLExceptions thrown by the client needs to be performed and match embedded where possible.
> If this does not happen before the 10.1 release, it would be good to document that SQLStates
 in the client will change for future releases
