Subject [jira] [Created] (DERBY-5955) Prepare Derby to run with Compact Profiles (JEP 161)
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2012 15:58:03 GMT
Dag H. Wanvik created DERBY-5955:

             Summary: Prepare Derby to run with Compact Profiles (JEP 161)
                 Key: DERBY-5955
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5955
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Documentation, JDBC, Services, SQL
            Reporter: Dag H. Wanvik

While waiting for a Java module system (aka project Jigsaw), it has been decided to define
a few subsets of the Java SE Platform Specification, cf JEP 161 ( http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/161).

A quote from the JEP: "More broadly, this feature is intended to enable the migration of applications
currently built on top of the Java ME Connected Device Configuration (CDC) to appropriate
Profiles of the Java SE Platform, part of the long-term effort to converge CDC with Java SE."

It would be good if we make Derby to run on such limited profiles. The current proposal places
JDBC in Compact Profile 2 (cf. link above), while other libraries used by Derby, e.g. javax.naming
(JNDI) are in Profile 3 (larger).

It would be good if Derby could run on the smallest posible platform, i.e. Profile 2, but
that will probably involve some changes to make Derby gracefully limit functionality when
some libraries are missing.
