Subject Re: [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-706) Remove axion from Geronimo assembly and remove default-database-plan.xml
Date Tue, 05 Jul 2005 15:50:03 GMT
When I added SystemDatabase I kept the DefaultDatabase plan around 
purely to avoid issues with installations at the time - back then Derby 
had not produced even an unofficial release from the incubator.

We have been trying to encourage people to use Derby for nearly a year 
now. I think it is time to finally kill off axion and replace it with 
just Derby.

We should keep the DefaultDatabase datasource around and separate from 
the system one - I would suggest as another database in the same 
instance. One is intended to be used by applications, the other just by 
the system itself.
