Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-4757) (Client) Implement UTF8 support on DRDA

Tiago R. Espinha updated DERBY-4757:

    Attachment: DERBY-4757_p3.diff

I'm uploading what would be the final patch for this issue. Here's a quick overview of what
it does:

- Adds methods to NetAgent that allow for a switch between the current CCSID manager being

- Defines the codepoint for UNICODEMGR as per the ACR.

- Defines a target level for the UnicodeMgr. This is the target that ideally we want to achieve
(1208) but might have to fall back to 0 in case the server does not support it (old servers).

- Adds a method to NetConnection that returns true or false depending on whether the server
supports the UnicodeMgr at level 1208.

- Writes the UNICODEMGR codepoint and reads it back from the server for the MGRLVLS negotiation.

This patch also enables the InternationalConnectTest to run on client/server mode as opposed
to before, where it ran only on embedded mode and expected an exception in case it was running
on client/server.

It needs to be mentioned that at this point, if the client falls back to level 0 on the UNICODEMGR
(this happens if the server does not support UTF-8, i.e. any Derby versions lower than 10.7)
then we will not send the RDBNAM at the ACCSEC. This will cause the server to throw a SYNTAXRM
since it expected the RDBNAM and the client will, by consequence, also throw a SYNTAXRM. This
crash is supposed to happen as the older servers just don't support UTF-8 characters. What
is left for improvement is the exception thrown by the client, which can be a little more
explicit and explain what is happening. After discussing this issue with Kathey on IRC however,
we agreed that we could go ahead as it is to ensure this makes it to the 10.7 release and
then at a later stage we can improve the exception.

I'll be running regressions tonight. Please review my patch and if there are no objections
I'd like to go ahead and commit this soon.
