Hi Craig,Attached please find the first draft of the TCK run rules for JDO2.0. Please comment.Why is the "sql" modifiable "to suit the JDO implementation" ?Why is the "orm" modifiable "to suit the JDO implementation" ?Surely the ORM defines the underlying schema, and so the ORM files providedwith the TCK are totally compatible with the schema provided with the TCK.That is the premise we have been using with JPOX whilst developing the TCK.Why is it different for other implementations?Can we have some examples of why it would be necessary ?Are we talking about JDO implementations that don't support Apache Derby ? Inthat case would it not be better to have any other RDBMS files generated befed back to the TCK project and then have them under central control? Wecan't have one JDO implementation hand crafting its own SQL files and ORMfiles and saying that it is "compatible" when the ORM they have generated maybe incorrect with respect to the spec and the schema it should equate to. e.gThanks--Andy
