Subject lunch recap
Date Thu, 23 Sep 2010 16:03:45 GMT
  Hello All,

Just wanted to give a quick recap of today's lunch.  Attending were 
Rick, Bryan, Lily, Myrna and myself.
It was great to see everyone and chat and we did touch on some Derby 
topics that I wanted to recap.
         - We talked a little bit about what might be the minimum 
required for a lightweight Derby maintenance release, for example on 
10.5 to provide a fix for DERBY-4677 there.  Hopefully it would be 
something much more lightweight to produce, without docs,  release 
note's, mirroring etc, maybe even without source if that is ok by 
apache.  I will file a Jira issue for this.
     - We talked about 10.7 and Rick mentioned that it was his hope to 
branch mid November and try to include a fix to make Derby less 
sensitive to interrupts.

JDK 1.7 and JDBC 4.1
     - Rick mentioned JDK 17 withJDBC 4.1 was in the works and that 
javadoc for JDBC 4.1 is in the Open JDK repository, so available to the 
     - I suggested that JDK 1.7 have some option to disable JDBC driver 
autoloading to provide a quick solution in the event of accidental 
Driver interaction, resource issues and potential upgrade issues related 
to loading all drivers on the classpath.  He asked me to send him an 
email on the issue and I will do so and cc this list.

Harmony  and Derby
   - I mentioned that I had recently tried the Derby tests with the 
Harmony JDK and they had fallen over completely due to security manager 
issues.  I will research a little more and send an email to the Harmony 
group.  It seems at one time they had the old harness tests running 
http://wiki.apache.org/harmony/Apache_Derby, so hopefully it wouldn't be 
a major effort to get them going.

In conclusion, Rick suggested for the next get together, we meet in the 
east bay for beverages.   I didn't mention it then, but think it would 
be great to invite the user community if we do that.
