As you are all aware, we are in the final end game for releasing Java SE 6 in December 2006. As part of this process we
are actively testing all areas of Java SE.

The JDBC 4.0 PFD contains many clarifications to the JDBC spec including the JDBC API docs. The majority of the changes are reflected in b91 of Java SE 6, Mustang.

Java DB and Apache Derby have been following the progress of the JDBC 4.0 specification very closely and have implemented many of the JDBC 4.0 features in the 10.2 alpha release.

The following enhancements were made in JDBC 4.0 in order to provide a better developer's experience when dealing with SQLExceptions:

  • Support for causal relationships
  • ...
