Subject Re: DB2JCC, was: [jira] Updated: (DERBY-689) Various improvements to compatibility test.
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2005 17:54:23 GMT
Hi David,

By "full set of combinations" I mean all values of ( Client, ClientVM, 
Server, ServerVM ) where

Client - ranges over all clients we have supported: DB2JCC, DerbyClient, DerbyClient, DerbyClient mainline (10.2)

ClientVM - ranges over all client VMs we have supported: jdk1.3, jdk1.4, 

Server - ranges over all servers we have supported: DerbyServer 10.0, 
DerbyServer, DerbyServer, DerbyServer mainline (10.2)

ServerVM - ranges over all server VMs we have supported: jdk1.3, jdk1.4, 

DB2JCC is included because some Derby customers use it and I thought the 
community would be interested in tracking its compatibility issues. For 
instance, we might want to understand issues which customers will face 
if they migrate off DB2JCC onto DerbyClient 10.2. Based on previous 
email threads, I could see these compatibility issues gating the 
acceptance of proposals or releases by some of our committers.

It's just a tool. Right now, a very limited too: I've only logged one 
minor incompatibility bug based on this test. As we add more test cases, 
we will discover more incompatibilities. Some of these incompatibilities 
will be minor and some will be showstoppers.

Do you not want to track incompatibility issues with DB2JCC as part of 
running this test suite nightly/weekly/per-release?
