Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1465) NetworkServerControl.start() should throw an exception and not just print exceptions if the server fails to start
Date Thu, 22 Oct 2009 20:12:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1465?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12768855#action_12768855

Kathey Marsden commented on DERBY-1465:

I have been thinking about this issue which I filed back in Jan, 2006.  At the time it seemed
to make sense, but now the compatibility risks seem significant, now that Derby has been out
for years. I think by now folks have figured out that they need to ping the server to determine
if it is up. If it now starts throwing an exception it might cause problems.

I think Myrna's work on this issue has been valuable as it helped expose the issues mentioned
in the previous comment, but I am beginning to think we should close this won't fix.  There
had been talk about a new API for network server to replace the one that we have, if we do
that then the exception on start issue can be taken under consideration.

> NetworkServerControl.start()  will not throw an exception  if another server is already
running on the same port.    I am not sure but think perhaps this was changed at  one point
to accomodate the derby.drda.startNetworkServer property  so that the embedded server could
continue to boot even if the network server failed to start, but  I think this is wrong for
normal usage.
