Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-6213) Deprecate support for Java 5 and CDC
Date Tue, 14 May 2013 14:33:16 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6213?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Knut Anders Hatlen updated DERBY-6213:
--------------------------------------

    Attachment: client.diff

The attached patch, client.diff, changes the build target for the network client so that it
is built against Java 6 instead of Java 5. Since the base level now supports JDBC 4, all functionality
that used to be in *40 classes, has been moved to the base classes and the specialized *40
classes have been removed. (One exception: ClientDriver40 is preserved for backward compatibility,
as that class was part of the public API in Derby 10.10.) Some tests also needed updates because
they checked the class names of the returned JDBC objects.

Tests ran cleanly with the patch on Java 6, 7 and 8.

> The developer community has approved the proposal to sunset support for Java 5 and CDC:
http://apache-database.10148.n7.nabble.com/VOTE-Sunsetting-support-for-Java-5-and-CDC-td129832.html#a129925
> This issue tracks a number of tasks needed to implement this proposal:
> I) Remove build support for Java 5 and CDC.
> II) Purge user doc references to Java 5, CDC, and the JDBC 4 DataSources.
> III) Remove the JDBC 4 version of the public api from the published javadoc. The recently
introduced CP2 DataSources would need to migrate to the JDBC 3 version of the published javadoc.
The JDBC 4 versions of the DataSources would still exist, but they would be vacuous extensions
of their JDBC 3 counterparts.
> IV) On the wiki, document our expectation that maintenance releases will support the
same platforms as the original feature release cut from their branch.
> V) Decide what to do with the SimpleMobileApp. Probably we want to just remove this demo
since its purpose is to show how to run Derby on the deprecated CDC platform.
