Subject extraDBMSclasses.properties vs otherDerbyClasses.properties?
Date Wed, 19 Jul 2006 18:00:10 GMT
For some changes that I've made as part of DERBY-688 I had to add another class 
entry to the tools/jar/extraDBMSclass.properties file, as instructed in the 
following thread:


When modifying that file I noticed the XMLTypeCompiler class, which was added in 
response to the thread mentioned above.  I have confirmed that without the 
XMLTypeCompiler entry the XML tests will fail, so it's definitely necessary.

Given this, I had to wonder: why aren't the other TypeCompiler classes required 
in this file, as well?  For example, CharTypeCompiler?

I searched around and found that all of the other TypeCompiler classes are 
actually declared in two files:


So is that where XMLTypeCompiler should be declared, as well?  Or is 
extraDBMSclasses a better location because it works with both SANE and INSANE 
jars?  What about new classes like impl.sql.execute.SqlXmlExecutor, which is 
proposed as part of the first patch for DERBY-688?

Is there a preferred location for adding entries for new classes that are not 
explicitly referenced by the codeline?  If this is documented somewhere, please 
do feel free to point me in the right direction...
