Subject [jira] [Created] (DERBY-6478) Fix language about supported DataSources for Compact Profiles
Date Thu, 13 Feb 2014 18:04:20 GMT
Kim Haase created DERBY-6478:
--------------------------------

             Summary: Fix language about supported DataSources for Compact Profiles
                 Key: DERBY-6478
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6478
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 10.11.0.0
            Reporter: Kim Haase
            Assignee: Kim Haase
            Priority: Minor


Knut Anders Hatlen pointed out the following in his review of a patch for DERBY-6236:

"One little inaccuracy in the changed text (existing problem, not introduced by the patch):
It seems to imply that only the basic data sources work on Compact Profile 3. That is not
the case. The ordinary data sources are supported on CP3. Only CP2 lacks the necessary classes
(javax.naming.*) and need the basic data sources. (The basic data sources do work on CP3,
though, so it's not a problem if applications choose to use them if they don't need the extra
functionality of the ordinary data sources.)"

This means that numerous topics in the Admin Guide, Reference Manual, and Developer's Guide
probably need some fixes. For example, the topic "JDBC support for Java SE 8 Compact Profiles"
in the Reference Manual should probably add something like the following at the end of the
topic:

"Users of Compact Profile 3 on the Java SE 8 platform can use either these DataSource classes
or the Datasource classes for the full Java SE platform." 

As another example, the topic "Network client security" in the Admin Guide should probably
be changed to something like this:

"Derby provides two ClientDataSource implementations. Use the org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDataSource
class on all supported Java SE versions except Java SE 8 Compact Profiles 1 and 2. On Java
SE 8 Compact Profile 2, use the org.apache.derby.jdbc.BasicClientDataSource40 class."

Please let me know if these tweaks need further tweaking -- in the meantime I will start work
on implementing them. Thanks.
