Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5357) SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR shouldn't use identifier as file name
Date Tue, 13 Mar 2012 12:13:37 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5357?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13228349#comment-13228349

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-5357:

Thanks, Knut!

> Could this cause problems if the database crashes during upgrade (after removal of old
jar dir and before committing the upgrade transaction)

Yes, it could. I thought of leaving the old jar dirs in place, but that may be no desirable
either. I see SQLJ.REMOVE_JAR holds off the physical removal till transaction commit time,
maybe I can do something similar during upgrade boot.

> Could this cause memory problems during upgrade if SYSFILES is huge

In theory, sure. There is precedent code using this idiom in DataDictionaryImpl, but you're
right, I could easily merge the two methods to avoid the issue altogether.

I also found that the upgrade test code which tests the upgraded jars with "CALL EMC.ADDCONTACT"
won't run under CDC/JSR169 (nested connection requires DriverManager), so I'll just skipping
that part of the test on that platform.

I'll spin a new rev.

> When installing a jar file with the SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR procedure, it will copy the jar
file to a subdirectory of the database directory. The name of the stored jar file is based
on the qualified name specified by the second parameter in the procedure, and becomes something
like: <DBDIR>/jar/<SCHEMA>/<JAR_NAME>.jar.<VERSION>
> This naming scheme is problematic because the qualified name of the jar file is an SQL
identifier and may contain any characters, also characters with special meaning to the underlying
file system.
> One example is this call:
> ij> call sqlj.install_jar('/path/to/toursdb.jar', 'APP."../../../x/jar"', 0);
> 0 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> On Unix-like systems, this will install the jar in a subdirectory of the database directory's
parent directory, which is clearly unfortunate as the database directory should be self-contained
(an assumption used when taking backup of a database using operating system commands, or when
moving the database to another location).
> There's probably also a possibility that INSTALL_JAR fails if the identifier contains
a character that's not allowed in file names on the platform.
> It would be better if the jars were stored in a file whose name is independent of the
identifier used, so that any valid SQL identifier could be used to name a jar file in the
database without causing problems.
