Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-2925) Prevent export from overwriting existing files
Date Tue, 24 Jul 2007 20:05:31 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2925?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Myrna van Lunteren updated DERBY-2925:
--------------------------------------

    Derby Info: [Existing Application Impact, Release Note Needed]

I think, as we're now requiring users to delete files before attempting to export, that this
should have a release note, and it could affect existing applications.

Please see http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/ReleaseNoteProcess#head-8bfe22837d50a10f61f410c927336eabc682b62f
about writing a release note

> Export should not overwrite existing files, but rather insist that the user remove them
before writing to the file.  This will help prevent accidental or intentional corruption of
the database with export.  This may introduce a compatibility issue with export but because
export is usually an attended utility and not typically invoked as part of an application,
I think the risk is worth the additional security this will provide.
