Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4172) You can open a read-write connection to a database which was originally opened by another thread using the classpath subprotocol
Date Wed, 22 Apr 2009 09:05:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4172?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12701444#action_12701444

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-4172:
-------------------------------------------

In the first case mentioned by Dag, the second db is probably opened in read-only mode because
of DERBY-4171. (That is, when not specifying a subsubprotocol, a connection to a currently
booted db with the same name is opened, even if the booted database does not use the default
subsubprotocol.)

>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: JDBC
>    Affects Versions: 10.6.0.0

> The original connection, using the classpath subprotocol, was supposed to open the DATABASE
(not the connection) as read-only, according to the Developer's Guide section titled "Database
connection examples". However, I am able to write to this database in another connection which
opens the database using the default, file-based protocol.
> At a minimum, the documentation is wrong. But the documentation may be trying to impose
a consistent, easily described model on the behavior of our subprotocols. It may be that the
behavior of our subprotocols cannot be described by a simple set of rules that users can grasp
easily.
> To show this problem, I created a database and then moved it into a directory on my classpath
(in this case, trunk/classes). Here is a script which shows this behavior:
> connect 'jdbc:derby:classpath:derby10.6' as conn1;
> -- fails because a database which is opened on the classpath is supposed to be marked
as read-only
> insert into t( a ) values 1;
> connect 'jdbc:derby:trunk/classes/derby10.6' as conn2;
> -- this succeeds even though the database is supposed to be read-only
> -- according to the Developer's Guide section "Database connection examples"
> insert into t( a ) values 2;
> select * from t;
> delete from t;
