Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1547) Add svn version number to DatabaseMetaData getDatabaseProductVersion and getDriverVersion() to improve supportability
Date Wed, 16 Aug 2006 14:40:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1547?page=comments#action_12428405 ] 
            
Kathey Marsden commented on DERBY-1547:
---------------------------------------

I agree that the need to regenerate could cause potential issues. I think for the build number
it may be good enough to just do manual testing  and have the test check the output format
and not the number directly. For checking the other version numbers I think the property file
in the testing jar is a valid approach.

> 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.
