Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-5691) Document that Write Caching must be disabled to avoid possible database corruption

Kim Haase updated DERBY-5691:

    Attachment: DERBY-5691-2.zip

Thank you, Kathey, for the great comments!

I'm attaching a second patch, DERBY-5691-2.diff, DERBY-5691-2.stat, and DERBY-5691-2.zip,
with the following changes:

M       src/adminguide/cadminpreface23947.dita
M       src/adminguide/derbyadmin.ditamap
A       src/adminguide/cadmindbintegrity.dita
M       src/devguide/cdevdgpref11181.dita
M       src/devguide/cdevdvlp14839.dita

I added the information you suggested to two topics in the Developer's Guide: one in the "Purpose
of this guide" topic in the preface and, since people don't always read the preface, in the
"Application development overview" topic where the book starts to get into substantive areas.
The language may need some changes, though.

I hope the changes to the new Admin Guide topic are satisfactory. I am most uncertain about
the fix to the runtime compression item.

Please let me know if further tweaks are needed.

> Suggestion that we document a recommendation that Windows Write Caching be disabled on
machines using Derby.

>      http://support.microsoft.com/kb/281672
> It is possible that this could be the cause of some unexplained Derby corruptions identified
after power failure of other system interupt.

> From the Windows 2008 article:
> With some third-party programs, disk write caching has to be turned on or off. Additionally,
turning disk write caching on may increase operating system performance; however, it may also
result in the loss of information if a power failure, equipment failure, or software failure
occurs. This article describes how to turn disk write caching on or off.
