Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-982) sysinfo api does not provide genus name for client

Andrew McIntyre commented on DERBY-982:

Hi Kristian,

Thanks for the review!

I think that the changes to sysinfo are correct, but the test needs to be revised. The approach
I plan to take with the next version of this patch will compare the results for the version
from the sysinfo API with the results for the version info as returned from DatabaseMetadata.
I don't want to introduce another dependency on a version-specific master file, and I also
do not want to introduce a test that exercises a tautology. That is, I don't want to directly
compare the information used by sysinfo to generate its version information (the properties
files in o.a.d.info) with itself.

So, my plan for the next version of this test will be to compare the version information obtained
through JDBC's DatabaseMetadata with the information obtained via the sysinfo API. I believe
this is a proper test of the sysinfo API: that the version information for a specific version
of Derby obtained through the sysinfo API is equivalent to the version obtained through other
means. This will improve coverage for our testing of the sysinfo API (currently at 0%) as
well as verify that the values obtained via the DatabaseMetadata interface are correct.

to retrieve information from sysinfo about the client information.

> Note: Currently ProductGenusNames has a genus name for network server but network server
is closely tied to  the engine so should always have the same version.
