Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1039) Database creation should fail if specified log device path already exists
Date Tue, 28 Feb 2006 18:54:23 GMT
I am ok with checking for any empty log directory. But I am curious 
why would log dir be empty if it was used before unless user is 
explicitly deleting the files, in which cases he/she can delete the 
"log" dir too.  My understanding is Derby creates "log" directory 
under the user specified path. logDevice can be specified only on 
creation, What is the backward compatability scenario we are trying to 
solve, am I missing something.

If the logDevice path already exists but is empty then there is no 

I know I've set up scripts like this in the past. Should the checks be 
limited to situations that cause problems,
namely as described in the description,
the directory alredy contains old log files?
