Subject [jira] [Created] (DERBY-6061) Upgrade language is inconsistent
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2013 16:41:12 GMT
Kim Haase created DERBY-6061:

             Summary: Upgrade language is inconsistent
                 Key: DERBY-6061
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6061
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Kim Haase
            Priority: Minor

In the Developer's Guide we describe two kinds of upgrade, "full" and "soft". I think we used
to use the terms "hard" and "soft", and "hard" was changed to "full" to provide a more accurate
description of what happens. There are still a few leftover occurrences of "hard" in the docs
here and there.

However, "soft" doesn't provide much indication of what happens in that kind of upgrade. Would
"partial" be more correct? If not, is there a good alternative?

I can go through the docs and fix the language based on whatever you all think makes sense.
