I have no known bugs at present but only a limited crowd of early
adopters uses Pl/Java. Consequently it has not been thoroughly tested
and to say that it's "production ready" would probably be a bit
optimistic. I would be very interested in working together with someone
who could write demanding tests. It's a known fact that tests written by
outsiders often find more bugs than tests written by the product developers.
From a feature standpoint, I think Pl/Java is ready. It includes fully
functional support for functions, triggers, complex types (parameters
and return values), returning sets, a JDBC driver on top of SPI,
deployment/undeployment descriptors that executes SQL code, and more.
Right now I'm aligning Pl/Java with the upcoming 7.5 release and adding
gcj 3.4 as a possible choice of jvm (gcj is non proprietary and fits
right in from several other aspects as well).
I guess that "production ready" is a somewhat fuzzy measure. What would
it, in your opinion, take to claim that Pl/Java has reached it? Any
advice on how to get there?
