./databases/db6, Berkeley DB version 6 from Oracle

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 6.2.32, Package name: db6-6.2.32, Maintainer: ryoon

Berkeley DB is an embeddable database system that supports keyed access to
data. The software is distributed in source code form, and developers can
compile and link the source code into a single library for inclusion
directly in their applications.

Developers may choose to store data in any of several different storage
structures to satisfy the requirements of a particular application. In
database terminology, these storage structures and the code that operates on
them are called access methods. The library includes support for the
following access methods:

* B+tree: Stores keys in sorted order, using either a programmer-supplied
ordering function or a default function that does lexicographical
ordering of keys. Applications may perform equality or range searches.
* Hashing: Stores records in a hash table for fast searches based on
strict equality. Extended Linear Hashing modifies the hash function
used by the table as new records are inserted, in order to keep buckets
underfull in the steady state.
* Fixed and Variable-Length Records: Stores fixed- or variable-length
records in sequential order. Record numbers may be immutable or
mutable, i.e., permitting new records to be inserted between existing
records or requiring that new records be added only at the end of the

This package privides Berkeley DB 6 released under GNU AGPL3.

Changes between version and version

    Modified the ex_rep_base example to accept IPv6 addresses.

    Fixed a bug where SQL authentication APIs might raise assertion
    failures. [#24598]

    The SQLite user authentication extension now always requires
    encryption. To build with the authentication extension, encryption
    must be enabled. Otherwise, it results in a compiler error. To
    convert a database to require authentication, the database must
    be encrypted. sqlite3_user_authenticate() now always returns
    SQLITE_AUTH if called on a database that does not require
    authentication. [#24598]

    Fixed a bug where an application might hang because it could
    not obtain a TAS lock when running Linux on Sparc architecture.

    Added tests memp009 and mut004. [#24974]

    When the number of free mutexes is low, removed databases and
    closed unnamed in-memory databases are purged from the memory
    pool to free mutexes. [#24974]

    Fixed a bug where built-in atomic functions are used only when
    --enable-cxx is specified. [#24974]

    Fixed a possible crash when using the Java API and slices.

    Added cross-compile support for detecting built-in atomic
    functions. [#25055]

    Fixed undefined symbol errors for configurations including
    --enable-dtrace and -enable-perfmon_statistics when replication
    is also enabled. [#25061]

    Added the db_convert utility program which converts the byte
    order of all databases in database files. [#25086]

    Increased the number of instances in which failchk can successfully
    clean the environment without requiring full recovery after a
    thread crashes while using Berkeley DB. [#25087]

    Added DPL APIs to BDB Java client driver. [#25089]

    Attempting to open an environment while it is being recovered
    now returns a new error message, which includes the time.

    Improved db_verify's handling of corrupted database files.

    Adjusted configure scripts to handle FreeBSD 10 or greater.

    Fixed a bug where setting the absolute path of a file on Windows
    could result in the file being created on the wrong disk.

    Syncing a database with external files will now also sync the
    meta database associated with the external files. [#25284]

    Add support for -with-mutex=BSD/OSSpinLockTry, to avoid using
    the undocumented spin_lock_try function, which is not permitted
    on iOS. [#25342]

    Fixed a bug preventing some changes to external files performed
    through the DB_STREAM API from replicating to the clients.

    Fixed a bug where automatic log removal did not work on Windows
    Mobile 6.5. [#25449]

    Fixed bugs where printed statistics might contain "unknown"
    flags. [#25461]

    Fixed a bug where hot backup of queue extent files did not
    follow the original directory structure. [#25545]

    Fixed a bug where ADO .Net package had debug pre-processors
    for release configurations. [#25549]

    Added PRAGMA statistics, which prints out statistics about the
    database and its environment. [#25550]

    Added PRAGMA statistics_files, which redirects output from the
    statistics PRAGMA to a file. [#25550]

    Internal Berkeley DB messages are now redirected to the same
    file where internal Berkeley DB error messages are redirected.

    Fixed a bug that could cause a client undergoing internal
    initialization to fail to request all the necessary logs for
    a correct recovery. The major symptom of this bug was that some
    client database files were left with empty pages that would
    later cause log sequence errors or other failures. [#25624]

    Added a new field in the per-thread statistics output: the
    number of locked mutexes. [#25690]

    The -c option of db_hotbackup can now work with replication
    manager applications. The -c option cannot be used with base
    replication applications. [#25702]

    Fixed a bug where the configure script may fail to find the
    JNI include directories on Mac OS X. [#25713]

    Fixed a bug where mutexes could not be acquired on arm64-v8a
    Android systems. [#25752]

    Fixed a bug where the JAVACFLAGS environment variable was not
    passed to the JDBC driver. [#25752]

    Fixed a bug where clients in the replication group might panic
    during synchronization with the master. [#25800]

    Fixed possible segfaults when running db_verify with external
    files. [#25920]

    Added Visual Studio 2015 solution files to the SQL ADO.NET
    package. [#25946]

    Fixed a bug where setting initial number of lockers might cause
    segfault. [#26085]

    Fixed a bug where client specific log records resulted in
    incorrect calculation of subsequent log offset. This would
    later result in a DB panic on master. [#26090]

Changes 6.2.23:

New Features/Improvements
Added support for global message prefixes.

Added Replication Manager write forwarding, which enables a client to perform \ 
simple put and delete operations by forwarding them to the master.

Improved the way we mark a password as consumed.

Added support for IPv6.

Added support for Java 8.

Added support for ARMv7 and above, and for ARM64. ARMv6 and below are no longer \ 

Add a new SMP-optimized data model that is especially valuable for highly \ 
multithreaded applications. A sliced Berkeley DB instance contains a collection \ 
of related Berkeley DB environments, known as slices, each containing a disjoint \ 
subset of records. Transactional consistency is individually maintained within \ 
each slice, rather than across multiple slices.

DB now supports the client-server architecture by providing a stand-alone server \ 
program and Java client driver APIs. The server program offers remote access to \ 
DB features. The client driver APIs provide building blocks for applications \ 
that communicate with a database server. Multiple client applications can \ 
communicate with a single server simultaneously.

Enabled support of the SQLite user authentication extension.

Added Visual Studio 2012 projects.

Encryption and checksum can now be enabled with external files (formerly known \ 
as BLOBs). Note that only the data stored in the database will be encrypted and \ 
checksum protected. The data in the external files will not be encrypted or \ 
checksum protected.

The BLOB files feature has been renamed external files to reduce confusion with \ 
the SQL BLOB datatype. The BLOB related functions have been deprecated, and \ 
replaced with new function names; for example, ext_file_threshold has replaced \ 
blob_threshold, and blob_threshold is deprecated. See the Upgrading section of \ 
the documentation for more details.

Log message:
redo patch update for __aarch64__ as the real problem is that only __arm64__
was being checked and not the gcc toolchain's use of __aarch64__.
db6 does support the 64-bit ARM platform.
