Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6609) Documentation for SQL features should reflect current standard
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2014 19:54:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6609?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14037769#comment-14037769
] 

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-6609:
----------------------------------

It turns out that wrapping each table in a paragraph element creates some vertical space between
the tables. The next patch will have this fix, but I'll wait till I have some new content
to add. Thanks for the suggestion, Dag.

I think the only other topic with lots of tables one after the other is the "SQL error messages
and exceptions" topic, which is automatically generated for each release. I don't know if
it would be worthwhile to file an issue for that.

> We document Derby as an SQL-92 database. This standard is now very old, and we should
describe how Derby conforms to the most current standard (SQL:2011). Knut Anders Hatlen listed
the relevant features in a comment to DERBY-6605. 
> This will involve at a minimum replacing the "Derby support for SQL-92 features" topic
(http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.10/ref/rrefsql9241891.html) with a new one that describes
Derby's support for current features, with notes as needed indicating when the support is
partial. Only features Derby supports, fully or partially, should be listed. We should state
that features not listed are not supported.
> The information would be taken from http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/SQLvsDerbyFeatures
(which currently goes only through the 2003 standard). Listing the Feature IDs in the documentation
would also be helpful. 
> Other topics should be changed as needed. For example, is the term "SQL92Identifier"
still correct?
