Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (DERBY-1519) 'setAsciiStream' uses different encodings for embedded and client
Date Thu, 31 May 2007 18:03:37 GMT
 From the description in the bug this seems like the right change, but
it does seem like it may also be another incompatibility.  Should it
be added to the wiki?  What difference will an app that somehow depended 
on the old (wrong) behavior see now?

In the embedded driver, "ISO-8859-1" is used, in the client driver "US-ASCII" is used. The
former is 8-bit, the latter is 7-bit. According to JDBC, the 8-bit encoding should be used
for ASCII (see http://db.apache.org/derby/papers/JDBCImplementation.html#GetAsciiStream%28%29
>> The method 'getAsciiStream' should also be made to match in the two drivers.
