Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-3026) Remove deprecated frameworks directory and scripts
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2007 19:45:31 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3026?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

John H. Embretsen updated DERBY-3026:

      Priority: Major  (was: Trivial)
    Derby Info: [Existing Application Impact, Release Note Needed]  (was: [Release Note Needed,
Existing Application Impact])
       Urgency: Normal

Good point, Kim. I'm upgrading the priority to Major to indicate that this has major impact
(will remove an entire top-level directory), although an easy work-around exists (using the
bin directory). I noticed that the docs were not updated in the 10.2 branch, which is unfortunate
if/when more releases are created from that branch.

Not sure if we should leave the 'frameworks.DEPRECATED.txt' file or a similar warning in the
file tree or not, but I guess we still have some time to think about that. If anyone has opinions,
please comment.

>                 Key: DERBY-3026
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3026
>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: Demos/Scripts
>    Affects Versions:
>         Environment: N/A
>            Reporter: John H. Embretsen
>             Fix For:
> The release notes said:
> "New scripts have been added in the bin directory which follow Apache conventions. The
scripts in the frameworks directory are deprecated and may be removed in future releases."
> DERBY-1709 added a warning message in the scripts in the frameworks/ directory, as well
as a textual file (frameworks.DEPRECATED.txt) in the root of the installation tree warning
that the frameworks/ directory has been deprecated and that scripts in the bin/ directory
should be used instead. This was committed after the release, to both the trunk and
the 10.2 branch (before the 10.3 branch was created).
> The presence of both a frameworks/ directory and a bin/ directory is annoying to some
users, and confusing to others. There is obviously a balance to keep between pleasing such
users and other users who want backwards compatibility.
> Perhaps the next feature release (10.4?) is the right time to remove the frameworks/
directory once and for all, since deprecation warnings have been issued for the past two feature
releases (10.2 and 10.3, though stronger in 10.3 than 10.2), giving users time to adjust.
> Marking "Release Note Needed" since it is important to make such changes visible to users.
> This change may affect existing applications that are still using the deprecated scripts
in the frameworks/ directory.
