[JDEV] Re: jabberd 1.4.3 release candidate

Dear Sir,

The segfault in Oracle: are you 100% sure that you have checked the SQL
schema for foreign keys?

The thing is that  xdb_sql data model is 100% correct with the right
foreign keys and constraints, however when the SQL fires off an error,
xdb_sql does not know how to handle the error or so it seems and thus it
crashes the jabberd since it is dynamically linked to this process...

I had this problem using PostgreSQL and undoing the foreignkeys => no more
constraints, solved the problem. However then I have to be more MySQL'ish
in my data validation.

That means less lazyness => less time for coffee :-(

best regards, nino
(please "reply all")
