Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1149) 'jdbc40/StatementTest.junit' fails under DerbyNetClient
Date Mon, 27 Mar 2006 17:57:44 GMT
Thanks for catching this, Kristian.  As I go through messages on the 
client, I try to find a matching message that already exists for the 
embedded code.  I have not tried to actually look at the "same" code on 
the embedded side, as it's really hard to tell what the "same" code is, 
and where it is.

I think the message "Invalid transaction state" is very vague, and in 
this way is very general and reusable.  I have heard Dan state that 
general and reusable is better than specific and not reusable.  I am 
personally having trouble knowing how to best balance a comprehensible 
message with one that is too specific.

In this case, however, I think "Invalid transaction state" is so vague 
as to be pretty much unhelpful.  I would vote that we migrate 
CANNOT_CLOSE_ACTIVE_XA_CONNECTION from a client-specific message in 
client/.../loc/clientmessages_en.properties to a reusable message in 

I also think that the standard SQL State of 25000 is incorrectly used, 
here.  This isn't an invalid transaction state.  It's an attempt to 
close a connection with an open transaction.  If anything it *might* be 
a connection exception (08000), but I actually think it doesn't apply to 
either of these, and probably the SQL State, once you migrate it, should 
start with "XJ" - JDBC exceptions.

I am also realizing that we as a community need to decide if we want to 
ensure that the network client and the engine should always have the 
same SQL States for the same exceptions.  It's laudable, and if we catch 
differences I think we should fix them, but I am not sure if it should 
be *required*, especially for existing code.  It is *very* hard to 
reliably backport this consistency into existing code, as the code paths 
on the two drivers are quite different.  If anyone has any ideas about 
this, it would be much appreciated.


P.S. I'll start running the jdbc40 test suite as well as derbyall prior 
to checkin of i18n changes.
