Subject DB2JCC, was: [jira] Updated: (DERBY-689) Various improvements to compatibility test.
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2005 16:18:55 GMT
Hi David,

Thanks for this improvement.

Right now, the DB2 JCC libraries are required for running the full set 
of combinations. I don't understand Derby's long term relationship with 
this code. As we add new JDBC support (e.g., JDBC 4.0), we have no 
control over the behavior of this client. Do we expect customers to 
migrate onto Derby's client as of 10.1? I'm not aware of any discussions 
about either continuing or sunsetting support for DB2 JCC.

Regards,
-Rick
