Re: [dtp-dev] Firebird enablement in DTP

Hi Roman,

Thanks for the bug report and patches -- I'll talk with our project leads
about these today, and they'll be updating the bugs with status as
necessary.

> However in other places DTP uses table.getSchema().getName() code to get
the schema name.

Yes, these cases should be considered bugs. We'll see if we can scan the
DTP code base, identify these cases, and put in the correct checks.

> And one more question: are there any plans to release a bugfix DTP
release or the next release will be DTP 1.5?

We weren't planning a maintenance release before 1.5, though feedback from
the community is very useful in these decisions. In general we try to fix
bugs in support of community efforts in the current build stream, and only
point release when the next scheduled release is far away, or there is a
need for a release build by the community. Assuming that we can work with
your bugs/suggestions in the 1.5 stream, would you need a point release
before then?

Larry,

Thanks for your reply.

that this is a defect.  These features should be aware of the whether or
not schema are supported.  Please open two defects for this,  one
against Sample Contents and one against the Data Editor.

I have opened following bug reports:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=175454
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=175455
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=175456
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=175457
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=175458

They also include suggested fix, which I have tested locally. It works,
though I used the released sources, not the CVS snapshot. I have
included all plugin jars in classpath when compiling the fixes, so it
might not respect some plugin dependencies, etc.

One more issue - different places of DTP check whether to use fully
qualified name differently. Some (TableHelper in bug 175454) check
whether Table.getSchema() returns null. However in other places DTP uses
table.getSchema().getName() code to get the schema name. Obviously, it
would generate NPE if Table.getSchema() returns null.

And one more question: are there any plans to release a bugfix DTP
release or the next release will be DTP 1.5?

Roman
