Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-711) The documentation should explain that Derby database files are platform-independent
Date Fri, 20 Nov 2009 23:05:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-711?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12780821#action_12780821

Bryan Pendleton commented on DERBY-711:
---------------------------------------

Seems like a reasonable place to put this would be
http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.5/getstart/cgsintro.html

I think we could just add something like:

  The on-disk database format used by Derby is portable and
  platform-independent. Derby databases can be moved from
  machine to machine without needing to modify the data; a
  Derby application can include a pre-built, populated database 
  if it needs to, and that database will work in any Derby configuration.

I think we could make this a paragraph by itself, right before the
"Before you install Derby" paragraph.

> Somehow the fact that Derby database files are platform independent slipped making it
into the documentation. Here's a relevant post:
