Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: xql files and db version

Posted by Don Baccus on
Also please fix them without breaking the 7.2 version if you know how ... if not, rather than a patch file you may want to post the change in the bug report body (so we don't accidently apply the patch and break 7.2 support) with a comment pointing  out what changed so we can try to figure out a patch that works for both.

We could break out query files by version - that's why we implemented that level of granularity in the query dispatcher.

But in practice thus far we've been able to do our version migrations without doing so.  With PG we've tried to support the current and current-less-one major version - at the moment PG 7.2.x and 7.3.x.  OpenACS 5.0 will support Oracle 9i and 8i, and PG 7.2/7.3 (PG 7.4 is still in beta).
