Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1547) Add svn version number to DatabaseMetaData getDatabaseProductVersion and getDriverVersion() to improve supportability
Date Tue, 22 Aug 2006 11:37:17 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1547?page=comments#action_12429677 ] 
V.Narayanan commented on DERBY-1547:

Thank you for the comments on the patch. Going by your comments of using existing property
files would it be possible to take a clue from the way this is done in the EmbeddedServer
and client currently and get the product version the following way

The class ProductVersionHolder is used to get derby product information in Embedded Server,Client
and tools as a result of which it is a part of derby.jar,derbyclient.jar and derbytools.jar.
The property files using which the information is constructed for each Genus or each product
category are 

Embedded - DBMS.properties
Client           - dnc.properties
tools             - tools.properties

1) In the tests I would need the driver versions in the embedded and the network client case.

   I can get the product version in both the cases using the ProductVersionHolder class. For
   I would need to have ProductVersionHolder class and files DBMS.properties and tools.properties
   in derbyTesting.jar. 

2) When I need to get the version string for the EmbeddedServer I would do the following

    InputStream versionStream = getClass().getResourceAsStream(ProductGenusNames.DBMS_INFO);
    engineVersion = ProductVersionHolder.getProductVersionHolderFromMyEnv(versionStream);

> 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. " - (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.
