Subject Derby and portability
Date Wed, 16 Nov 2005 16:04:51 GMT
The Derby Project Charter (on the web site) states that it should be 
"Pure Java", but it does not say anything about portability for anything 
but the _code_.

Can one, for example, safely assume that the on-disk database format is 
platform-independent? I have read it somewhere, but I don't see it in 
the charter, so do I have a guarantee that this is an invariant?
