Subject [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-1033) Update supported database and driver matrix
Date Fri, 17 Apr 2009 19:50:14 GMT


Milosz Tylenda commented on OPENJPA-1033:

Donald & Jeremy, good idea to address this. My opinion:

- I would list a minimum level of support for each database with the explicit verbage that
newer versions claiming backward compatibility are also supported (or just: verbage that newer
versions are also supported). This should be clear for users and will save us some work as
databases are updated quite frequently.

- I would define a supported version/database as a statement of what OpenJPA will be more
apt to support if problems are found. I assume we are not able to run tests regularly on every
minor (or even major) database version. Also, I believe Derby being the only one which passes
every (nearly) test case.

- I would bump up the minimum PostgreSQL version to 7.4 as previous versions seem not to be
updated by PostgreSQL programmers for a long time.

- I believe the previous version of the patch was correcting the order of sections. It might
have been another good idea but probaly now needs a new patch because of the recent updates
for Firebird.
