Oracle Upgrade for Wildfire Server 2.4.0

We are running Jive Messenger 2.3 backended by an Oracle 10g database ( on a separate machine. We are using the Oracle “thin” JDBC driver. When upgrading to Wildfire Server 2.4.0, we receive this message:

2005.12.19 15:18:27 org.jivesoftware.database.DbConnectionManager.setConnectionProvider(DbConnection Manager.java:342) Database upgrade failed.

Please manually upgrade your database.

Investigating a bit, it appears the following string is being sent to the server:

UPDATE jiveVersion SET majorVersion=2, minorVersion=4;

The semicolon is tripping up Oracle; the statement works without the semicolon.

The other statement in the upgrade script is (without semicolon):

ALTER TABLE jiveGroupUser MODIFY username VARCHAR2(100) NOT NULL

This causes this error in Oracle 10g:

ORA-01442: column to be modified to NOT NULL is already NOT NULL

If the statement is modified as follows:

ALTER TABLE jiveGroupUser MODIFY username VARCHAR2(100)

it works OK and the non-null constraint is preserved.
