your objects, or your own preferences).

I thought  that when using JAVA_OBJECT as a data type, Java Objects are automatically serialized and deserialized in the JDBC layer. Is this false?


I think the JAVA_OBJECT type in Derby has been disabled, but could it
have been available in earlier Cloudscape releases?
I see comments in the code suggesting the support for JAVA_OBJECT is
"half-baked", so it would be nice if someone with knowledge of earlier
times could enlighten the rest of us :)

Would be nice to know if the feature is disabled.
