> I have found some discrepancies between Derby code and the description of the stored
page format found on our web site (http://db.apache.org/derby/papers/pageformats.html):
> 1) The website correctly says that the page header is 56 bytes long. However, you get
58 bytes if you add up the values in the left column of http://db.apache.org/derby/papers/pageformats.html#storedpage.
The extra 2 bytes come from the inclusion of an unsigned short representing "% of the page
to keep free for updates". That field does not appear in StoredPage.readPageHeader(). The
field should be removed from the web site page.
> 2) That table has an additional problem: the "spare for future use (encryption uses to
write random bytes here)" field is correctly listed as being 4 bytes long (in the left column)
but the middle column says that it is a long. That middle column should say that the value
is an integer.
> 3) Although the first 4 bytes of the AllocPage header are devoted to a Formatable ID,
the actual Formatable ID only occupies the leading 2 bytes of the page. The next 2 bytes are
unused. The first line of the "Format of Alloc Page" table should note this fact.
> 4) There is no RECORD_INITIAL bit in the record header status field.
