Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6061) Upgrade language is inconsistent
Date Wed, 06 Feb 2013 02:53:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6061?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13572102#comment-13572102

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

Thanks, Kim. Looks good. The sentence reintroduced for roles should probably say "fully upgraded"
now: Since we retain the term soft upgrade, the term "upgrade" is not precise. Maybe we should
state in the section "upgrading a database" that any usage of the unqualified term "upgrade"
will (normally, unless with the soft qualifier) mean a full upgrade? Or did you do through
other uses to check that they are properly qualified?

> 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.
