Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-4805) Increase the length of the RDBNAM field in the DRDA implementation

Increase the length of the RDBNAM field in the DRDA implementation
------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-4805
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4805
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Network Client, Network Server
    Affects Versions: 10.7.0.0
            Reporter: Tiago R. Espinha


Currently, whenever the client driver is used, there is a limit of 255 bytes for the database
name. This is defined by the DRDA spec and there has been a discussion on the list [1] as
to whether this limit should be raised due to the introduction of the new ACR that allows
for UTF-8 characters.

UTF-8 characters can take up to four bytes and this reduces the limit in characters dramatically.

This should be an easy change as there is a codepoint that defines this limit.
