Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-4629) Explicitly document how to get case-insensitive sorts and comparisons of string data
Date Mon, 26 Aug 2013 20:11:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4629?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13750492#comment-13750492

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-4629:

Rick, do you think that more is needed here in addition to the work on DERBY-4627 and DERBY-4628?
Or would it still be helpful to have a topic on "Performing case-insensitive sorts and comparisons"
in the "Localizing Derby" section, in addition to the one on "Creating a case-insensitive
database" further up under "Working with the database connection URL attributes"? 

As near as I can tell, you must have a case-insensitive database in order to perform case-insensitive
string sorts -- is that correct?

> The most frequently asked question about Derby's support for language-sensitive strings
is this: "How do I get Derby to perform case-insensitive sorts and comparisons?" I think that
the answer to this question could be figured out by a reasonably intrepid reader who understood
a lot about Java's locale and collation support, perhaps supplemented with a fair amount of
> If we made the answer to this question really pop out to the casual reader, then I think
we would do a great service to our users and to developers and tech writers who answer questions
on the community lists. Perhaps it would be sufficient to add a "Case-insensitive strings"
section parallel to "Character-based collation in Derby" in the Developer's Guide.
