Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1223) Update Getting Started to include instructions on setting JAVA_HOME variable.
Date Thu, 07 Sep 2006 19:10:25 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1223?page=comments#action_12433200 ] 
Laura Stewart commented on DERBY-1223:

I have some additional questions for you:

General - 
Should the environment variables have the "$" in front of them? For example $DERBY_HOME.

File = cgsinstallingderby
Here we use the term "distribution", "package", and "distribution package". It seems to me
that they refer to the same thing.  It would be best if we stuck to just one term. What is
most accurate?

File = tgssetupjavaenvir
Do we really need to issue both java -version and sysinfo?  The way that the text is currently
written, it seems that sysinfo provides the version of the JVM.

File = cgsusingtoolsutils
The title refers to tools AND startup utilites.  Are there really 2 sets of things we are
describing here? If not we should change the title.

In some places we use different words to describe the same thing "tools" "utilities" "scripts".
We should stick with one word if all of these are really referring to the same thing.   What
is the most appropriate word?

In the note a the bottom of this topic, it mentions "if the variable is empty". Shouldn't
it say "if the variable is empty or not set" ?

In Kim's comments she mentions that when she downloaded Derby, the execute bit was already
set in all of the files.  If that is the setting when Derby is installed, then perhaps the
section on setting the bit is unnecessary?

> As of the fix for DERBY-1082, the scripts were made consistent to require setting DERBY_HOME
(or DERBY_INSTALL) and JAVA_HOME. The documentation on setting up your environment in the
Getting Started guide should be updated to reflect that these variables should be set.
