Subject Re: JDBC driver error codes documentation, where?
Date Wed, 09 Feb 2005 22:43:57 GMT
That looks like a much better error message. Thanks!

What I'm wondering now though, is, is there an equivalent property to the 
JDBC driver itself? Normally, with the other JDBC drivers that I've been 
using (MySQL, MSSQL, Sybase, PostgreSQL, Oracle), it was sufficient to just 
do an Exception.printStackTrace() to get a meaningful text message of what 
went wrong for a SQLException. I'm wondering if I'm still going to have to 
do more than that when using the Derby driver? Personally, I think it should 
print out descriptive text by default.
