Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-4259) Provide public database property for determining database format version
Date Fri, 28 Dec 2012 08:04:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4259?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13540382#comment-13540382
] 

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-4259:
-------------------------------------------

In DERBY-5818 it was suggested that simply documenting DataDictionaryVersion would be a fine
start. Documenting a property that follows a non-standard naming convention probably doesn't
add a lot more entropy than adding a new property with the same function would.

> It would be useful  to have a public interface for determining the database format when
running in soft upgrade mode.  In the derby-user thread:
> http://www.nabble.com/Hard-upgrade-failing--td23826558.html#a23835534
> Evan pointed out he was using an undocumented property 'DataDictionaryVersion' for this
purpose, but this is not ideal because it does not conform to the normal derby.* naming convention
 and is not documented.
> Discussion in DERBY-4255 determined that there are not currently DatabaseMetaData methods
that achieve the same result.
