Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-6157) text for message XSLA4 might encouraging people to delete part of the transaction log
Date Tue, 16 Apr 2013 22:11:15 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6157?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Myrna van Lunteren updated DERBY-6157:

    Attachment: DERBY-6157.diff

Attaching a patch which replaces the message. 
The full text was only reflected in lang/ErrorCodeTest.java, so I only ran that test.

I removed the message from most languages.properties files, so that the English will show
up instead of the unhelpful translated one.

Except I amused myself with devising a translation for German, French, Spanish and Italian.

I don't have the skill of a licensed translator, but with some limited knowledge, help from
various free translators, some dictionaries, and the text of other translated messages, I
think this is pretty close, better than what it was, and presumably if we get another all-out
translation contribution these will get overwritten anyway.

> This is not new, but while reviewing some of the 'disk full' messages resulting from
one of the long-running system tests, I realized that the text of ERROR XSLA4 could be read,
by people unfamiliar with derby and brave or in a panic, as suggesting one to delete parts
of the log directory:
> "ERROR XSLA4: Cannot write to the log, most likely the log is full.  Please delete unnecessary
files.  It is also possible that the file system is read only, or the disk has failed, or
some other problems with the media."
> We've been fighting people deleting files from the log directory, and even if this message
text may not be the culprit, it certainly is open for misinterpretation.
> I think we need to change this message. 
> English language experts and native as well as non-native speakers are particularly invited
to chime in.
> One suggestion is:
> Error encountered when attempting to write the transaction recovery log.  Most likely
the disk holding the recovery log is full.  If the disk is full, the only way to proceed is
to free up space on the disk by either expanding it or deleting files not related to Derby.
 It is also possible that the file system and/or disk where the Derby transaction log resides
is read only.  The error can also be encountered if the disk or filesystem has failed.
