Description Radek Bíba 2009-09-18 14:53:58 UTC
Description of problem:
The hsqldb init script has the following issues:

* commands 'force-reload' and 'try-restart' aren't implemented.

* when hsqldb is unconfigured - typically its config file doesn't set a required variable such as JAVA_EXECUTABLE - attempt to start the service exits with code 2. This should be 6.

* attempt to start an already running service should exit with code 0, not 1.

* when the service is stopped and command 'status' is run, exit code should be 3, not 0.

* attempt to stop an already stopped service should exit with code 0, not 1.

* when the service isn't running but its lock file exists (the service died), command 'status' should explain the situation and exit with code 2.

* when the init script is executed with an unknown or invalid command, it should exit with code 2.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2010-11-04 09:56:16 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '12'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 10 Radek Bíba 2010-11-04 14:26:24 UTC
Still not fixed in F14.

Comment 11 Andrea V. 2012-05-14 19:35:42 UTC
