I reviewed the patch and I have some questions/concerns before I commit the changes.
- The patch updates the database version levels for several databases. Some versions, DB2 8.1 for example, may work fine with OpenJPA. Should that version be removed for the sake of currency? Would it be better to list a minimum level of support each database with the assumption (or explicit verbage) that newer versions claiming backward compatibility are also supported?
- Has OpenJPA been fully tested with each of the versions specified? Does anyone know (or have an opinion of) what it means to be a supported version? Does it carry test implications or is it more a statement of what OpenJPA will be more apt to support if problems are found?
I'm all for staying current, I just wanted to get these things out in the open and give time for others to comment before committing the patch.
Regardless of the version updates, I think the other updates are good and the links to the support db sections is a nice feature.
