Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-6609) Documentation for SQL features should reflect current standard
Date Thu, 26 Jun 2014 19:37:27 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6609?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Kim Haase updated DERBY-6609:
-----------------------------

    Attachment: DERBY-6609-4.zip
                DERBY-6609-4.stat
                DERBY-6609-4.diff

Attaching DERBY-6609-4.diff, DERBY-6609-4.stat, and DERBY-6609-4.zip, with guesses at the
answers to the questions asked in previous comments. I made a few formatting fixes, especially
to a topic in the Dev Guide where a long paragraph needed to be broken up.

The changes affect 45 Reference Manual topics and the map file, as well as 4 Developer's Guide
topics.

In most cases the changes are straightforward, but I'm not sure that "Derby supports the complete
SQL-92 VALUES clause" means exactly the same thing with the "-92" removed.

Thanks in advance.

> 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?
