Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6061) Upgrade language is inconsistent
Date Sat, 02 Feb 2013 05:54:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6061?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13569439#comment-13569439

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-6061:
--------------------------------------

> Another approach to the problem might be to eliminate all mention of soft upgrade

This may be good for most users' perspectives. Devs need two terms to cover the "soft" behavior
as well, and dev terms easily slip into end user docs.
Bu also users need sometimes be aware that a new version of the database jar *could* cause
issues even without upgrade=true, and also sometimes new features/fixes *are* available without
hard upgrade, so it would be good to have an easy way to characterize that situation.

What about code (or jar) upgrade vs. database upgrade ?

> 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.
