Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-378) support for import/export of tables with clob/blob and the other binary data types will be good addition to derby,
Date Mon, 26 Feb 2007 21:36:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-378?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12476009

A B commented on DERBY-378:

I haven't actually reviewed the code at all, but I was just wondering about the names for
the new procedures.  When I first looked at them use of the "IN_EXTFILE" sounded a tad awkward
to me (esp. for export).  I instinctively thought "...TO_EXTFILE" would be better for export
and "FROM_EXTFILE" would be better for import.  But then I realized that such names could
potentially cause confusion (ex. If I'm importing lobs from EXTFILE does that mean there is
other, non-lob data in EXTFILE that I'm not importing?)  So those probably aren't much better.

The only other thing that comes to mind is "USING_EXTFILE", but again, I don't know if that's
really any better.  Perhaps "IN_EXTFILE" is in fact best because it's generic and it's short,
in which case please feel free to leave the procedure names as they are.  I just thought I'd
mention that on first reading the names seemed slightly odd, in case you or anyone else can
come up with other suggestions.

NOTE: I do *not* think this little comment should block commit of the patch.  This is a pretty
minor thing and could easily be changed as part of a follow-up patch when (and if) a different
set of names is chosen.
