To all who have implemented an Open Data Access (ODA) data source extension,
please read on...

A number of enhancements have been identified in the ODA framework to
support additional features requested by the community.
Please see the following link that describes these enhancements and proposed
API changes in the org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.oda bundle version
3.2, for release in DTP 1.7 (Galileo).
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Galileo_DTP_ODA_API_Changes_Spec

New methods will be added to the ODA Java interfaces. This means that
compiling your existing ODA runtime driver implementation with these latest
ODA interfaces would require an upgrade to implement the additional methods.
The ODA framework will provide binary backward compatibility support of an
ODA data source extension, whose source were compiled with a version earlier
than these ODA 3.2 API interfaces. If an ODA extension has not implemented a
new interface method, the ODA Consumer Helper framework will throw an
UnsupportedOperationException on its behalf.

For any comments and feedback, please add them to the project wiki page or
corresponding Bugzilla entry. These API changes are targeted to commit in
CVS later this week for the Galileo M6 milestone.

As far as I can see, BIRT 2.5M6 doesn't yet support the Java Object data
type added with these changes. Will this be implemented in the final
release of BIRT 2.5?

Yes, I'm hopeful that at least some support will get added in BIRT 2.5.
How do you intend to use the Java object data type support in BIRT? For
reporting purpose, an object data item would still be converted to a String
for the report output.
