Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4525) Document the in-memory storage back end
Date Tue, 09 Mar 2010 15:29:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4525?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12843174#action_12843174

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-4525:
-------------------------------------------

Hi Kim,

DERBY-4428 contains more information about the new 'drop' attribute.

+1 to remove the sections that only apply to JVMs that we no longer support, but that's probably
better to address in a separate issue. (We may want to keep the first two paragraphs in some
form to make sure that it's documented that you cannot boot two instances of the same database
simultaneously.)

> The in-memory back end isn't considered experimental anymore, we have to 
> write user documentation for the feature(s).
> I'm not  sure how it should be structured, and where the content should be added.
> Just as a rough cut, here are a few possible topics (I'm not sure if all should be included
or not):
> - documenting the new protocol name ('memory')
> - documenting the new 'drop' JDBC connection URL attribute
> - describing the limitations of the feature (all your data will be lost if..., how to
use it with the client driver and the data sources)
> - "advanced use" (pull dbs on disk into memory, backup in-memory dbs to disk)
> - tuning tips (there are some issues with extreme page cache sizes, maybe the existing
content on page size is valid)
> - known problems (nothing concrete here yet, but we have one inquiry about disappearing
databases - the current theory is that different class loaders are used)
> Some more information is available at http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/InMemoryBackEndPrimer
