Subject Re: Should COLLATION attribute related code go in BasicDatabase?
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2007 19:25:22 GMT
Ok, so I spent some time trying to move COLLATION attribute code from
DataDictionaryImpl.boot to DataValueFactoryImpl.boot. I thought I could
simply put following piece of code in DataValueFactoryImpl.boot method and
the Property.COLLATION will get saved in the properties conglomerate. That
is not happening
       if (create) {
           String userDefinedCollation = properties.getProperty(
           if (userDefinedCollation == null)
            userDefinedCollation = Property.UCS_BASIC_COLLATION;
           else {//Invalid value handling
            if (!userDefinedCollation.equalsIgnoreCase(
              && !userDefinedCollation.equalsIgnoreCase(
             throw StandardException.newException(SQLState.INVALID_COLLATION,

I verified that property is not getting  put in properties conglomerate by
trying following after database creation
The above sql returns null rather than returning UCS_BASIC or
TERRITORY_BASED_COLLATION. The other properties in Derby get saved by going
through TransactionControllerInstance.setProperty method but I can't use
that because Store module has not been booted yet and hence I get a

One way to get around this is to let BasicDatabase do the COLLATION
attribute reading and putting the property in PropertyConglomerate through
TransactionControllerInstance.setProperty. And then BaseDatabase can call a
method on DataValueFactory to set the collator which should be used for
collation if user has requested territory based collation, ie going back to
what I had proposed in my first mail in this thread.

Any feedback? May be there is another way to read COLLATION attibute and
save it in DataValueFactory.boot which I am not aware of.
