Add Ability to import external file for binary data types like BLOB; the value can be either a qualified URL or a file path name.

Fix 937732 - XlsDataSet now use UTF-16 encoding to support Asian characters. Patch submitted by Shuhei Kondo.
Fix Applied XlsTable empty table detection patch submitted by Deepak Kaimal.

Release 2.0 – January 22, 2004

Type Changes By
Update Mavenized the build and the website!
Update Now use SAX2 instead of Electric XML DOM parser. Streamed mode allows importing and exporting very large XML datasets with minimal memory consumption.
Add Flat XML dataset validation.
Add New ITableIterator interface used to iterate thru dataset tables. Allows lazy tables initialization for some dataset implementations. The IDataSet.getTables method have been deprecated and usage should be avoided.
Update Global System properties are not supported anymore. You must now use the new DatabaseConfig object to alter DbUnit behaviours.
Add Configurable data type factory to easily integrates new data types with the DbUnit core. Factory implementations available for some database vendors. Submit your own!
Add Oracle TIMESTAMP data type support via the OracleDataTypeFactory.
Fix Fix truncated Oracle DATE. Must use the OracleDataTypeFactory.
Fix Fix for Oracle CLOB greater than 4000 bytes. Must use the OracleDataTypeFactory.

Add Database views support.
Add New pluggable filter strategies for DataSetFilter. You can now exclude/include tables using wildcard patterns.
Add Ability to sort tables by their dependencies with the new DatabaseSequenceFilter strategy.
Add New ReplacementDataSet decorator, which can replace decorated dataset values on the fly. Can be used with flat XML dataset as a new way to specify null values.
Add New XlsDataSet. An MS Excel dataset implementation. Uses the Jakarta POI package.
Update Assertion.assertEquals is now performing typed comparison instead of string representation comparison.
Update INSERT, CLEAN_INSERT and REFRESH operations do not override database default values anymore with null values. Null values are now omitted from insert statements. Operations use multiple prepared statements for the same table, when null values vary from row to row.
Update Moved InsertIdentityOperation to "org.dbunit.ext.mssql" package to be consistent with other vendor extensions. Temporary keep a deprecated copy in "org.dbunit.operation.mssqlserver" to ease transition to DbUnit 2.
