From "A B (JIRA)" <derby-...@db.apache.org>
Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-675) Build-time processing of "metadata.properties" file handles slashes incorrectly.
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2005 17:49:45 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-675?page=all ]

A B updated DERBY-675:

    Attachment: d675_v2.patch

Attaching a second patch that provides for a safer fix than the first patch, per Dan's suggestion


I ran derbyall on Windows 2000 with Sun jdk142 and saw two unrelated failures ("junit /framework/TestCase"
not found for the CompatibilityTest.java against DerbyNet and DerbyNetClient). 

So if anyone could review/commit, that'd be great.

> During the ant build process, Derby's metadata.properties file is modified by the ODBCMetadataGenerator
class and that class treats backslashes that occur in the metadata.properties file incorrectly.
 More specifically, it treats every backslash as the end of a line and thus will translate
things like
> into
> \
> n \
> (in other words, escaped characters like "\n" are handled incorrectly)..
