Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (DERBY-1547) Add svn version number to DatabaseMetaData getDatabaseProductVersion and getDriverVersion() to improve supportability
Date Tue, 01 Aug 2006 18:40:57 GMT
Does anyone think this is a bad idea?  Seems simple and a good idea to 
me but it is changing an exported format.

>>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.
