Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1094) Make DatabaseMetaData.getProcedureColumns() JDBC4 compliant

I hope I'm not discouraging you from pursuing this work--that's certainly not my intent. 
You're asking good questions and I'm just trying to provide some answers--or at least, some
indication as to why things are working the way they are.  I appreciate your persistence here
and hope I haven't deterred you.

Umm....I don't know.  I don't really know if it's valid to say "JDBC assumes ODBC version..."
since, so far as I know, the only "link" between the two is that, in the past, JDBC has often
picked up behavior from ODBC.  But I don' t think that's a guaranteed thing and I have no
idea if/how the one is dependent on the other.  My guess is that they're technically independent--two
different APIs to a backend server that just happen to have similar functionality--but I'll
gladly stand corrected if anyone out there knows more.

Again, I'm going to plead "don't know" on this one.  I'm far from an ODBC expert--I just happened
to do some ODBC metadata work a while back and that work ties in with some of your questions.
 I tried to make the ODBC queries compliant with the ODBC 3 API as I read it, and the current
queries seem to satisfy the need.  But there could me more to be done in this area and there
are almost certainly other people out there who know more about this than I do...

So pardon my incomplete answers/knowledge, I'm just providing what I know...hopefully that's
more helpful than confusing...
