Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4591) Documentation needed for global case-insensitive setting (DERBY-1748)
Date Fri, 23 Apr 2010 08:43:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4591?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12860183#action_12860183

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-4591:

Hi Kim. I don't see this error if I add 'à' and save the file with UTF-8 encoding. I do see
the same error if I save the file with ISO-8859-1 encoding. My text editor (Emacs) automatically
picks the correct file encoding based on the header in the XML file, which says:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

If you cannot get your editor to save as UTF-8, you may change the header to say ISO-8859-1
instead, and it should work.

As to using escape sequences, the character showed up just fine in the PDF version when I
tried. What's the locale you're using? According to http://db.apache.org/derby/manuals/dita.html#Setting+up+your+environment,
you need to set the LANG variable to en_US.UTF-8.

>    Affects Versions:
>            Reporter: Kim Haase

DERBY-4591.zip, DERBY-4591.zip, rrefattribcollation.html
> The new feature implemented by DERBY-1748 needs to be documented. It appears that the
following topics will need to be changed, at least:
> Reference Manual: collation=collation attribute
> Developer's Guide: "Creating a database with territory-based collation", "Character-based
collation in Derby". 
> It's pretty hard to tell from all the discussion under DERBY-1748 exactly what has changed
and what the new feature does, so a functional spec for that issue that describes the new
feature clearly would be very helpful.
