2.5 RlsNotes: Bug with DIFFERENCE FILE already fixed before release

Created: 29/Dec/10 02:41 PM   Updated: 29/Dec/10 02:47 PM

 Description  « Hide
From 2.5 RlsNotes :: Data Definition Language :: Evolution of CREATE DATABASE :: The DIFFERENCES FILE Argument for CREATE DATABASE:

    SQL> alter database drop difference file;
    SQL> alter database begin backup;
    Statement failed, SQLCODE = -607
    unsuccessful metadata update
    -STORE RDB$FILES failed
    -message length error (encountered 278, expected 276)

    It is not a user friendly message but it means we have no difference file. Perhaps curiously,
    the engine does not rescue the situation and create the delta using the default mechanism.

In fact, this has been fixed by Claudio himself for 2.5 RC3 and 3.0 Alpha 1 (see CORE-2750).

I've also tested it in practice and it works correctly.

Oh, and another thing: the title of this section is:

    The DIFFERENCES FILE Argument for CREATE DATABASE

It should be:
 
    The DIFFERENCE FILE Argument for CREATE DATABASE

(DIFFERENCE singular)
