The jdbc-postgres gem (jruby-extras) includes:
But 8.3-604 is the current recommended/stable version
If you look at the changelog you will see quite a few bug fixes
intervening these versions.
Also, for Java 1.6 they recommend a jdbc4 driver instead of the jdbc3
version currently bundled.
Based on this I’d like to suggest (and can volunteer the changes for):
Include both jdbc3 and jdbc4 jars in the jdbc-postgres gem and
selectively require based on running JVM version. Since the jars are
reasonably small (~400k) this doesn’t seem too problematic.
Include build number as third patch version number in the gem, i,e:
Which would enable staying current with the upstream driver’s patch
Thoughts? Is there a git repo for jdbc-postgres I could fork?
