Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1547) Add svn version number to DatabaseMetaData getDatabaseProductVersion and getDriverVersion() to improve supportability
Date Wed, 13 Sep 2006 13:04:23 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1547?page=comments#action_12434435 ] 
            
John H. Embretsen commented on DERBY-1547:
------------------------------------------

No problem... since this is a "time critical" fix, and the sed patterns work (I have not tried
the patch yet, though), removing the unnecessary brackets should be optional at this point
(I just think it looks clearer without the brackets). So don't let my comment slow down the
process to get this fix committed!

I have not had time to "interpret" the other patterns fully yet, since I do not know exactly
which strings they are supposed to match, and I have other things on my to-do list. But when/if
I do, I'll let the community know if I find anything worth mentioning. Thanks for making the
patch!

> 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.
