All of the blockers that were initially mentioned on tracking bug are now fixed.
Lionel mentioned that he added a few more blockers that needs to be fixed until Firebird will be switched by default :
and added a few open bugs to the blocker bug
based on their description (and NEW instead of UNCONFIRMED status)Tamás Bunth (Wastack) agreed that 6 months time frame is more than enough to fix bugs that will appear
only, without reading the bug log in great detail.
I agree, it would be reasonable to wait a half year. Until that we canAnother issue is importing old hsqldb databases without java installed
fix the already found and the upcoming bugs, solve the backward
incompatibility. Even if those can be solved quickly we can upgrade to
the c++ API.
It requires making a read-only parser for the HSQLDB "cached" table
data format in another language than Java. Most definitely possible,
the format may even be better documented than "read the source code".
