Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-4629) Explicitly document how to get case-insensitive sorts and comparisons of string data
Date Tue, 27 Aug 2013 14:11:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4629?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13751282#comment-13751282

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-4629:
--------------------------------------

Hi Kim,

Where were you thinking of putting the "Examples of case-sensitive and case-insensitive string
sorting" section? From the point of view of reference material, it's good to have this material
where it is today: under the documentation on URL attributes. But the "Localizing Derby" section
is a better home for this material for someone who is trying to grasp what Derby's capabilities
are. Thanks.

> 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
googling.
> 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.
