Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2390) DOCS - Merge Working with Derby and Getting Started Guide
Date Tue, 12 Jun 2007 08:50:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2390?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12503782

John H. Embretsen commented on DERBY-2390:

While browsing the merged document (getstartderby.pdf) I noticed a couple of issues not directly
related to this work, but that are present in each of the manuals that are part of this merger.
I see a number of different ways to handle this, but I'm not sure which one is the best:

 a) Fix the issues as part of this JIRA-issue
 b) Create two new JIRA-issues, one for each of the current manuals ("Getting Started" and
"Working with Derby")
 c) Wait until the two manuals have been merged and then create a new JIRA-issue for fixing
the issues.

I tend to think that option c) is the cleanest way to go, but let me know if anyone has other

The issues are potentially factual errors in the manuals, but this may be subject to discussion.
I do not consider it important to fix these issues by the time a release candidate for 10.3
is generated (we may not have enough time for that anyway). Issues are:

 1) Getting Started with Derby: Installing Derby: Confusing description of the bin-distribution,
seems to say that jar files are not part it.
 2) Working With Derby: Activity 3: The WwdEmbedded program: 
        a) The "Shut down the database" shuts down the engine, not an individual database.
It should make a point about the difference between these operations.
        b) The same section says that "The XJ015 error is the only exception thrown by Derby
that indicates that an operation succeeded. All other exceptions indicate that an operation
failed." What about '08006 - Database '<databaseName>' shutdown'?

I found no issues with the merger itself that was not already commented by others - but I'll
consider reading an updated version if I have enough cycles available when it is submitted.
