Subject [jira] [Created] (DERBY-6236) Remove references to old JVMs (pre-Java 6) from the user guides
Date Wed, 29 May 2013 13:47:23 GMT
Rick Hillegas created DERBY-6236:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Remove references to old JVMs (pre-Java 6) from the user guides
                 Key: DERBY-6236
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6236
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 10.11.0.0
            Reporter: Rick Hillegas


DERBY-6213 removed support for Java 5 and CDC. We need to scour references to these platforms
from our user documentation. This includes scouring references to JDBC 3.0 and JSR 169. Changes
include the following:


-------- Admin Guide -------------

o "Differences in JDBC 3.0 methods": The section should be renamed to "Differences in JDBC
methods" and references to JDBC 3.0 should be removed from its text.


-------- Developer's Guide -------------

o "Derby and Java Virtual Machines (JVMs)": the lowest supported JVM level should be changed
from 5 to 6.


-------- Getting Started Guide -------------

o "System requirements": the lowest supported JVM level should be changed from 5 to 6.

o"Verifying the Derby system configuration": bullet 1, references to Java version 5 should
be changed to 6.

o "Self-study tutorial for users new to Derby": references to JDK version 5 should be changed
to 6.



-------- Reference Guide -------------

o "JDBC reference": Change "JDBC 3.0 and 4.0 APIs" -> "JDBC API"

o "java.sql.Driver interface": This section gives instructions on how to load the JDBC driver
if you are running on an old (pre-Java 6) JVM. The section is almost vacuous now. It can be
collapsed to the following summary:

"The class that loads Derby's local JDBC driver is the class org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver.
The class that loads Derby's network client driver is the class org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver."

o "JDBC Package for Connected Device Configuration/Foundation Profile (JSR 169)": Remove this
section.

o "Features supported on all JDBC 4 releases": This section should be removed and its material
should be merged into the preceding sections.

o "DataSource classes": The following changes should be made.

"Embedded environment, for applications running on JDK 5 or higher and using JDBC 3 and JDBC
4.0 methods:" -> "Embedded environment, for applications running on Java 6 or higher:"

Remove the following paragraph and the list of *40 DataSources which it introduces:

"Embedded environment, for applications running on JDK 6 or higher and using methods specific
to JDBC 4.1 or JDBC 4.2:"


"Client-server environment, for applications running on JDK 5 or higher and using JDBC 3 and
JDBC 4.0 methods:" -> "Client-server environment, for applications running on Java 6 or
higher:"


Remove the following paragraph and the list of *40 DataSources which it introduces:

"Client-server environment, for applications running on JDK 6 or higher and using methods
specific to JDBC 4.1 or JDBC 4.2:"



-------- Tools Guide -------------

o "Environment setup and the Derby tools": The minimum Java level is 6, not 5.
