Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1547) Add svn version number to DatabaseMetaData getDatabaseProductVersion and getDriverVersion() to improve supportability

---------------------------------------

Hello Narayan,

I am back from vacation and see the testing conversation on this issue is holding it up. I
think the latest suggestion actually creates a cyclical testing scenario where we would be
using ProductVersionHolder to test the call to ProductVersion holder.

I think this issue has become time critical as it really needs to go into a a feature release,
so I think we may need to try to look at the most expedient route to get it into 10.2 and
then focus on ideal testing strategies later when we have leisure to do so.  To me, your original
proposal to add  a _sed.properties for  each of the tests would be that route?  Would you
agree?

> 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.
