Derby 10.2 Beta - Regression Search and Destroy

Posted by davidvc on August 11, 2006 at 5:31 PM PDT

Just a quick note to let you know that Derby 10.2 is now in beta,
available for download at
http://people.apache.org/~rhillegas/10.2.1.0-beta/


Derby 10.2 contains a lot of great new features, including



  • JDBC4 support


  • XML Support for XPATH and XQUERY


  • Online backup


  • GRANT/REVOKE


  • Scrollable Updatable Result Sets


  • Optimizer Overrides



A lot of features also means potential for destabilization. If
you have applications written to Derby, I highly recommend you pull
down this beta and run it through its paces to make sure there are no
regressions for you. If there are, please let us know through the
derby-user
mailing list
. We even have a Regression
Search and Destroy Challenge
going on, and the winner gets a box
of chocolate.
