From "Laura Stewart (JIRA)" <derby-...@db.apache.org>
Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1820) In the reference manual the description of backupDir arugument for all the backup procedures is incorrect.
Date Tue, 12 Sep 2006 20:38:23 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1820?page=comments#action_12434265 ] 
            
Laura Stewart commented on DERBY-1820:
--------------------------------------

I have a question about some of the wording in the updated description:

1. The word"against" seems odd here.  Can something else be used, like " Relative paths are
resolved based on the
current user directory of the database engine, not based on the derby home directory."

2. Is "Relative path names" and "absolute path names" correct?  It seems to me that we can
drop the word "names".  I believe that "directory paths" are understood without saying that
they are "names".

3. "... current user directory of the database engine" is a phrase that might be misleading.
 Does this mean"
a) The directory that the current user is using in the database engine
b) The directory called "current user" that is in the database engine
c) The directory in the database engine that the current user is using

Do we need to qualify this phrase with "of the database engine" ???
