Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6059) Document Derby usage running on Java 8 JEP 161 Compact Profiles
Date Mon, 11 Feb 2013 10:49:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6059?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13575724#comment-13575724

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-6059:

Dag is correct. DERBY-5880 made the suffix-less data sources more capable, and the javadoc
comments were updated to reflect the new reality. The suffix-less data sources can (still)
be used on JDBC 3.0 platforms, but now they also support the full JDBC 4.0 API. The data sources
with the "40" suffix require at least JDBC 4.0 support in the JVM, otherwise the classes will
fail to load. They support the full JDBC 4.1 API.

I guess we should add a sentence to the javadoc of the 40-suffixed classes to say that they
will also work on Java SE 6/JDBC 4.0. They will have to continue supporting that platform
for backward compatibility reasons, and we could just as well say that explicitly in the javadoc.
That might make the naming less confusing too.

> Document that Derby can run even under constrained Java runtime as planned for Java 8
Compact Profiles 2 and 3 (not 1, the smallest runtime, since it has no JDBC). Cf work in DERBY-5955
which made Derby run gracefully even when some normal Java runtime packages are missing, notably
> That work introduced six new data sources which have reduced functionality compared with
the corresponding ones for full Java SE, in that there is no JNDI support. The six new data
sources are for the client driver:
> Client/server data sources for use with Java 8 Compact Profile 2 and above:
>     BasicClientDataSource40 - Data source
>     BasicClientConnectionPoolDataSource40 - Connection pooling data source
>     BasicClientXADataSource40 - XA data source 
> Embedded data sources for use with Java 8 Compact Profile 2 and above:
>     BasicEmbeddedDataSource40 - Data source
>     BasicEmbeddedConnectionPoolSource40 - Connection pooling data source
>     BasicEmbeddedXASource40 - XA data source
