Hi

Is there any updated db for running test suites.
Any help in it will be really helpful.

Thanks

Hi Vipul,

I assume you are referring to DERBY-584. I have replied on that issue. That is probably a better place to discuss the specifics of the fix and its tests.

Thanks,

Hi

The org.apache.derby.client.am.ColumnMetaData  has no DB2_SQLTYPE_NUMERIC case for getColumnMetaDataType() function.
Similarly in org.apache.derby.client.am.Types I updated the case for NUmeric type and also in drda's SqlType.java.
The above changes gave the correct metadata.
But as this looks like a protocol change would like to know which test case will check derbyclient and drda layer.
And also is there any specific reason for using decimal for both numeric and decimal types.

Thanks
Vipul

           Hi

           I am new to derby and would like to work on client server
           layer of derby db.
           Can anyone suggest a initial starting point so that , it
           can get started with derby development.

           Thanks

       Hi Vipul,

       One place to start would be to start fixing some of the
       discrepancies between the client and embedded drivers. Look
       for open JIRA issues which have the "Embedded/Client
       difference" box checked. DERBY-584 might be an easy one to
       start with

   DERBY-4901 might be an easy one too and if you like protocol,
   build up to DERBY-4805 .

   In general when working with Derby I think it is good to do the
   tutorial first.
   http://db.apache.org/derby/papers/DerbyTut/index.html

   Then get your build and test environment set  up. See:
   http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/ForNewDevelopers
   (also the relevant specifications are at the bottom of this page)

   and if you want to use eclipse, Tiago made a nice screen cast for
   this at:
   http://www.vimeo.com/5376690

   I would suggest you make sure suites.All and derbyall run before
   you start making code changes, so you can work out any kinks
   separate from your code changes.

   Welcome and please do not hesitate to ask questions.

   Kathey
