Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4381) Connection to Derby doesn't work if the path has round braket in it
Date Wed, 14 Oct 2009 22:30:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4381?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12765792#action_12765792

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-4381:

We could introduce '\' (backslash) as an escape character in this syntax, but I guess that
could make some
Windows users unhappy, since I think Derby (Java) accepts '\' as directory delimiter along
with '/' (forward slash).
One would then have to write C:\\Program Files\\ ... Using forward slashes would avoid this,
but changing this
syntax would likely break existing apps.  One possible way out would be to interpret backslash
as a meta-character only in front of punctuation and whitespace characters, otherwise it would
be taken verbatim. E.g. \\ means a single backslash, \w means a backslash followed by a lower
case w.

>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions:
>         Environment: Windows Vista
>            Reporter: Shivaraju Gowda
>   Original Estimate: 5h
>  Remaining Estimate: 5h
> In 64 bit windows vista OS, if an executable is 32 bit than it is generally installed
> "C:\Program Files (x86)" folder. The brackets in the path cause problems while connecting
> to any database stored in that folder(in jar format) through derby JDBC.
> The effective connection string is :
> jdbc:derby:jar:(C:/Program Files(86)/ClassicModels.jar)ClassicModels 
> This fails because the closing brackets is not escaped. 
> I looked into the documentation and didn't find references to escaping the brackets in
the path. 
> I think this problem should be reproducible on all platforms.
> you cannot connect to it,
