Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4381) Connection to Derby doesn't work if the path has round braket in it
Date Wed, 14 Oct 2009 20:46:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4381?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12765745#action_12765745

Shivaraju Gowda commented on DERBY-4381:

> Is it standard to escape special characters?Perhaps this should be changed to a documentation

I don't know, even if it is I couldn't figure out what escape character to use from the documentation.
tried the backslash, "\", as in the connection string below, and it didn't work.

jdbc:derby:jar:(C:/Program Files\(86\)/ClassicModels.jar)ClassicModels 

> Since this involves a Windows standard folder I will add a TIP to the WIKI so the information
is searchable.

The only workaround I can think of is to place the db jar file in a path which doesn't
have the round brackets. Do you have any other suggestion?
