Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-4428) Add proper delete mechanism for in-memory databases
Date Mon, 23 Nov 2009 15:01:40 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4428?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Kristian Waagan updated DERBY-4428:

    Attachment: derby-4428-3a-canonical_name_handling.diff

Attaching patch 3a, which changes how StorageFactoryService handles canonical names.
I have to admit the name handling puzzles me somewhat, but I hope I got it right now. It seems
that this code never expected to get canonical names from other storage factories than the
default. The value passed in will have the storage factory type name, whereas the storage
factory itself doesn't append it's type. With the old code, every attempt to delete a service
would fail, except for when the default storage factory is used (the on-disk directory based
back end).

This patch caused me some trouble already, and I want to test it on Windows before I commit
it. An extra pair of eyes would be good as well!
So far the only errors observed have been assert errors, but I haven't verified that everything
works in insane mode despite the triggered asserts.

Patch ready for review.

> The current mechanism for deleting in-memory databases isn't good enough, and a proper
one must be added.
> It is also important to be able to delete in-memory databases, since they occupy valuable
main memory that should be discarded when the database is no longer needed.
> I intend to implement the mechanism by using the JDBC connection URL:
> "jdbc:derby:memory:myDatabase;delete=true[;user=X;password=Y]
> The connection attempt will throw an exception in any case, either because the request
failed or because it succeeded.
> Reasons for a failure can be invalid user and/or password, lacking encryption attributes,
or conflicting attributes.
> For the time being, only the database owner will be allowed to delete databases (*note*:
do we have a way to control/limit in-memory database creation?)
