Subject [jira] [Created] (SIS-492) Remove support for JavaDB
Date Mon, 09 Mar 2020 22:33:00 GMT
Martin Desruisseaux created SIS-492:
---------------------------------------

             Summary: Remove support for JavaDB
                 Key: SIS-492
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SIS-492
             Project: Spatial Information Systems
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Metadata, Referencing
    Affects Versions: 1.0
            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux
            Assignee: Martin Desruisseaux
             Fix For: 1.1


Apache SIS was used to try to open the {{SpatialMetadata}} database (which contains the EPSG
dataset) using the Derby driver on the classpath, or if no such driver is found using the
JavaDB driver embedded in the JDK from Java 6 to Java 8. But JavaDB has been removed from
the JDK in Java 9. We nevertheless kept the code looking for JavaDB because SIS was still
compatible with Java 8. But even JDK 8 removed JavaDB since update 181 (JDK 8u181). That update
expired one year and half ago, in October 16, 2018 (was released in July 17, 2018). Consequently
there is no longer any reason to keep the code looking for JavaDB.

* Reference: [Update 181 release note|https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/8u181-relnotes-4479407.html]
