Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4591) Documentation needed for global case-insensitive setting (DERBY-1748)
Date Fri, 23 Apr 2010 13:50:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4591?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12860248#action_12860248

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-4591:

Thanks, Knut, for the reminder about the environment.

I think this may be hopeless -- the same thing happens both with the simple text editor I
usually use (the one in CDE --- very old) and NetBeans. There seems to be no way to control
what format the editor saves in. I don't think it looks at the header at all.

In both editors I used Compose-a-backtick to create what in the  editor looked like an a with
a grave accent, but in my terminal with the LANG variable set to en_US.UTF-8, it turned into
an A with a tilde in a Solaris terminal window and a Greek lowercase alpha in a Windows command
prompt window (when I did a grep for another word in the line that contained it). And of course
I still get the "Invalid byte 2 of 3-byte UTF-8 sequence" error.

>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: Documentation
>    Affects Versions:
>            Reporter: Kim Haase
>            Assignee: Kim Haase
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For:
>         Attachments: DERBY-4591-2.diff, DERBY-4591.diff, DERBY-4591.diff, DERBY-4591.stat,
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.
