8.64. hsqldb

Updated hsqldb packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The hsqldb packages provide a relational database management system written in Java. The Hyper Structured Query Language Database (HSQLDB) contains a JDBC driver to support a subset of ANSI-92 SQL.

Bug Fixes

Previously, the /etc/sysconfig/hsqldb file was not marked as "config(noreplace)". Consequently, reinstallation or update of the packages could overwrite changes to the configuration made by the user. With this update, the configuration file has been marked correctly, and modifications to the file are preserved during reinstallation or update.
Prior to this update, the hsqldb database depended on java packages of version 1:1.6.0 or later, which are unavailable on some Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 platforms. As a consequence, installing the hsqldb packages failed with an error message. With this update, java packages of version 0:1.5.0 or later are required, and the installation of hsqldb now proceeds correctly as expected.
Users of hsqldb are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
