Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-503) Documentation should recommend using .newInstance() to instantiate JDBC driver
Date Tue, 26 Aug 2008 13:21:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-503?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12625725#action_12625725
] 

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-503:
------------------------------------------

Thanks for working on this issue, Kim! I'm sorry that I didn't review
it earlier. The patch looks very good. I only found one small issue:

radminembeddedserverex (Embedded server example):

  - I agree that it's confusing that the comment says EmbeddedDriver
    and the code uses ClientDriver. However, I think the example
    should still use ClientDriver, since the last line before the
    example says "The remote client can then connect through the Derby
    client driver:" and the db URL points to a network server.

> Using Class.forName("<driver name>").newInstance() is the recommended way to load
and instantiate the JDBC driver, but the documentation does not contain the .newInstance()
part.
> Pointers:
> http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.1/devguide/cdevdvlp40653.html
> http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.1/ref/rrefjdbc32052.html
> The EmbeddedDriver javadoc mentions it:
> "The JDBC specification recommends the Class.ForName method without the .newInstance()
method call, but adding the newInstance() guarantees that Derby will be booted on any Java
Virtual Machine."
