Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3703) Make it possible to build the JSR169 support with the jdk1.4 libraries
Date Wed, 04 Jun 2008 15:41:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3703?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12602323#action_12602323

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-3703:
--------------------------------------

Concerning the first patch: I can't prove that there won't be linkage errors on some small
platform vm. For modern vms which resolve references lazily, I think there would not be a
problem. However, a problem could occur on an old vm which resolves references eagerly. See
paragraph 2 in this section of the VM spec: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jvms/second_edition/html/Concepts.doc.html#22574
So Dan's objection stands.

I would like to clarify the proposals around creating dummy jar files for the small platform
api:

1) I think that if we go to the trouble of creating dummy sources to compile against, then
we should check those sources into Derby's codeline and build them as part of the normal Derby
build. I would propose putting them in the following directories unless someone has a better
idea:

  java/build/jsr169/java/sql
  java/build/jsr169/javax/sql

2) I just want to clarify that we are only talking about dummy sources for the jsr169 api
(java.sql and javax.sql) and not dummy sources for the entire CDC api.

> It would be good to simplify the Derby build so that the whole product could be built
out-of-the-box just from what's checked into the Derby repository. As a step toward this goal,
it would be good to be able to build the jsr169 support without having to download proprietary
libraries.
