Subject Re: [jira] Resolved: (DERBY-1489) Provide ALTER TABLE DROP COLUMN functionality
Date Sat, 07 Oct 2006 07:41:50 GMT
I'm wanting to apply this patch (_v8_) to the sources (the 
latest released version). But applying the patch to these sources fails.
What are my options?
Its important that I have a version that allows databases to be upgraded 
with future versions, so I was hoping to stick as closely to the 
released version as possible, and avoid the "this database can't be 
upgraded because it was created by a beta version of derby" problem.

issues: DERBY-1909 to fix the sqlAuthorization problem, and DERBY-1926 to provide documentation.
