Subject Re: Can we change SQL State? (was Re: [jira] Updated: (DERBY-1172) incorrect error message in updateRow() after a commit on a held scroll insensitive resultset)
Date Mon, 03 Apr 2006 18:10:59 GMT
I reviewed such a document that was contributed by Jeff Levitt as part 
of 10.1, see http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.1/ref/rrefexcept71493.html

In my latest ref of the interface table, I have marked those SQL States 
that are based on the SQL Standard as Standard, and those SQL States 
that are specific to Derby as Unstable.
