Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1923) XML operators - Xalan requirement
Date Fri, 29 May 2009 19:04:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1923?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12714552#action_12714552

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-1923:

There is a note in the Dev Guide topic "XML data types and operators" (http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/dev/devguide/cdevstandardsxml.html)
stating that Xalan comes with most JVMs now (with details). I think the last sentence of this
topic can be removed now, since Derby doesn't support JDKs earlier than 1.4.

The sentence "To see a list of the versions of the JAXP implementation and of Apache Xalan
that have been tested with Derby XML support, see to the Derby release notes" should also
be removed. This information is no longer in the release notes, presumably because just about
all JAXP/Xalan versions just work now.

>From the XML operator and other topics in the Reference Manual that talk about Xalan,
it would probably be appropriate to state briefly that Xalan support is in most JVMs and to
point to the Dev Guide topic for details.

Does this make sense? I welcome other suggestions.

> From Daniel Debrunner:
> The XML operators and data type include text about requiring Xalan etc. When trying out
XML I felt lost at this point because there was no information on what I was meant to do.
It was the feeling I was being told "You need to do something with Xalan to get this to work,
but you are going to have to figure that out yourself". It stopped me from evaluating Mustang
with XML. Can there be information in the developers' guide about this, and a link to that
information from these Usage notes?
