Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1547) Add svn version number to DatabaseMetaData getDatabaseProductVersion and getDriverVersion() to improve supportability
Date Wed, 16 Aug 2006 14:56:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1547?page=comments#action_12428408 ] 
            
Kathey Marsden commented on DERBY-1547:
---------------------------------------

Looking back at your original post asking about  using the sed test harness capability, if
you go that route.   I do not think adding a global pattern to Sed.java is a safe thing to
do.  One thing I always wondered was why we   need to test the same metadata calls in so many
tests.   If we just tested it in one place, you would need only one sed file for jdbc and
one for odbc.  But I am not sure of the reasons why we test the same calls so many times.
 I think I can safely say NSInSameJVM doesn't need it.

> getDatabaseProductVersion and getDriverVersion() report only the four digit Derby version
number and not the svn build number.   It would be useful to return  the full version including
the build number  as sysinfo does: e.g. "10.1.2.4 - (392472)", That way it will be clear from
application logs that collect this information exactly what revision level they are running
if they are using rolled up fixes on the maintenance branch between releases.
> There may be risk in doing this however if applications are parsing the version information,
but hopefully they will use getDatabaseMajorVersion() , getDatbaseMinorVersion, getDriverMajorVersion,
and getDriverMinorVersion for such proccessing.
