Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-6353) Update syntax description in Getting Started, use in Reference Manual too
Date Tue, 01 Oct 2013 19:11:23 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6353?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Kim Haase updated DERBY-6353:
-----------------------------

    Attachment: DERBY-6353-2.zip
                DERBY-6353-2.diff

Substituting revised version of DERBY-6353-2.diff and DERBY-6353-2.zip, to add the special
meaning of the curly braces in JDBC escape syntax. This is specific to the Reference Manual,
so I'm not adding it to the version of the syntax topic in Getting Started.

> The "SQL Syntax" topic in the Getting Started guide (http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.10/getstart/rgsdocs10012.html)
does not describe the curly braces ("{ }") as they are actually used in syntax statements,
where they actually group required items, normally so choices can be separated by vertical
bars ("|"). This should be corrected.
> I also plan to adopt the suggestion made in DERBY-6121 that the topic be added to the
Reference Manual, where syntax is most used. 
> Does anything else in the topic need fixing? I am confused by the statement that the
asterisk "has a special meaning in some SQL statements." What special meaning can it have
other than marking repeatable items?
