Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-2255:
-------------------------------------------

+1

This patch has waited too long already. Judging by the interest till now, it doesn't seem
likely that we'll get more testing of it until it has been committed. And as you say, if there
are problems that are too difficult to fix, we can always back it out.

> Many users have been confused by the lack of response from ij when they forget to end
a statement with a semicolon, and believe that Derby is taking its sweet time answering their
query, while ij is simply waiting for more input.
> This issue tries to address this by adding a short "> " prompt to the next line after
a newline has been entered by the user without ending the statement with a semicolon.
