Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3983) User Guide documentation on the limitations of small-device support is stale
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2008 16:24:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3983?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12655264#action_12655264
] 

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-3983:
-------------------------------------------

> 1) Lack of XML datatype (can be remedied if the small device platform can be supplemented
with some extra, freely available jar files) 

I think we already document that a newer version of Xalan is needed for the XML support to
work (regardless of small platforms). We should check that Xalan actually works on the small
platforms before we claim that it's possible to make it work with the extra jars.

> 2) Non-blocking io

This is not visible to the users (same functionality on the small platforms, but possibly
performance differences), so I don't think we need to document it.

> 6) SSL/TLS encryption

Only used by the client and the server, I think. It's probably sufficient to document that
the client and the server don't run on the small platforms.

> The limitations of Derby's feature set on small devices is sketched in the Reference
Guide in a section titled "JDBC Package for Connected Device Configuration/Foundation Profile
(JSR169)". This section should be expanded to include other unsupported features identified
in DERBY-3966:
> 1) Lack of XML datatype (can be remedied if the small device platform can be supplemented
with some extra, freely available jar files)
> 2) Non-blocking io
> 3) Java EE resource manager support, including distributed transactions
> 4) Principal-based security
> 5) LDAP-based authentication
> 6) SSL/TLS encryption
> 7) Replication
