Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3187) SimpleApp (demo) does not work in a client setting
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2007 15:22:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3187?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12540763

John H. Embretsen commented on DERBY-3187:

I'm wondering how the DERBY-2216 J2ME change was tested in a J2ME environment in the first
place. Wouldn't the statement "import java.sql.DriverManager" cause an error in a CDC environment?
At least it fails (with NoClassDefFoundError: java.sql.DriverManager) with the phoneME cvm
(CDC/FP), even if I make sure the check for J2ME (which in its current state is inadequate)
is true.

Anyway, I am planning to fix this for 10.3.2 as part of a major overhaul of the simple demo
(DERBY-3118). I'm currently considering two options:

1) Revert the J2ME changes introduced in DERBY-2216. Instead, we may create a separate simple
demo for the mobile platform.

2) Always keep the datasource's static type as javax.sql.DataSource, which is available in
all environments. When access to methods in EmbeddedSimpleDataSource is required (only in
Java ME environments), do a cast from DataSource to EmbeddedSimpleDataSource, e.g. like this:


instead of this:


Option 2 works (runtime errors in non-mobile environments are avoided), at least in the JVM's
I've tried so far, but:
  a) I'm not sure it will work in all "supported" JVMs (need to refresh and extend my Java
spec knowledge a bit I guess).
  b) The code looks less elegant, which partly defeats the purpose of a *simple* demo.

So I'm inclined to go for option 1.

Any opinions? Or does anyone have any other options we could use to solve this?
