Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2582) EmbeddedConnectionPoolDataSource does not implement java.sql.Wrapper but reports JDBC 4 compliance when run with JDK 6
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2007 03:43:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2582?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12491122

Stan Bradbury commented on DERBY-2582:

Being new to issues of API specs and all I don't know.  The words used are those of the development
lead I spoke to about the topic.  They are using the metadata call as described.  I do not
recall if the word compliance was used, however, I don't want that to detract from the problem
presented here.  The situation for this developer is as described.  The metadata call is used
to determine what is supported in code using the datasource.  His comment upon finding that
the datasource did not implement this JDBC 4 interfaces was: 

 "For non JDBC4.0 providers we expect JDBC3.0 to be returned (or JDBC2.0 depending on the
spec version), otherwise, we would break."

Upon looking at the JSR221 sections cited above this seemed like a reasonable use of the call
so I raised this issue so others in the community familiar with implementing datasources in
complex environments could give there assessment of whether this might be a problem in other
development efforts as well.

>             Project: Derby

>            Reporter: Stan Bradbury
> Software that checks the value returned by the dataseMetadata method getJDBCMajorVersion
for JDBC compliance level and, based on the value, takes different paths in the code will
fail unexpectedly accessing java.sql.Wrapper when loading EmbeddedConnectionPoolDataSource
in a JDK 6 environment.  EmbeddedConnectionPoolDataSource reports a compliance level of 4
when loaded in a JDK 6 environment.  It returns JDBC 4 objects but the Datasource itself does
NOT satify  the JDBC 4.0 interface Wrapper and so, not being fully compliant, should not report
JDBC 4 compliance.  
> JSR 221 does not detail the behavior of the dataseMetadata method getJDBCMajorVersion
but the description in Section 6.3, JDBC 4.0 API Compliance, states: "A driver that is compliant
with the JDBC 4.0 specification must .. Fully implement .. java.sql.Wrapper".  As Dan stated
in his comment on DERBY-2488,  (http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2488#action_12485033)
EmbeddedConnectionPoolDataSource does not implement Wrapper.
