Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6462) Provide more information about database name and path syntax
Date Sat, 10 May 2014 21:59:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6462?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13993955#comment-13993955

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-6462:

Sure, the unquoted semicolon is a command separator in most UNIX/Linux shells, including bash
and sh. Usually,
the user is expected to know those things, but we should make sure our examples are correct.
And it is, of course,
appreciated by most users if we give them warnings about such pit-falls, although it's not
strictly a Derby issue...

> Except for initial Windows drive letters (e.g. K:/derby), colons break Derby.
> Windows can't have colons in directory of file names, so this is a Unix issue.
