Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-1439) Investigate removing the antiGC thread in embedded Derby
Date Thu, 22 Jun 2006 16:41:29 GMT
Investigate removing the antiGC thread in embedded Derby
--------------------------------------------------------

         Key: DERBY-1439
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1439
     Project: Derby
        Type: Improvement

  Components: Services  
    Reporter: Daniel John Debrunner
    Priority: Minor


The antiGC thread was originally created to avoid the DriverManager class being garbage collected
when no refrences existed to it and it had loaded the embedded JDBC driver (and hence shutting
down the engine). This was an issue with JDK 1.1. Since Derby does not support jdk1.1 and
garbage collection of classes is clearly defined, it is possible the thread serves no useful
purpose.
