An SQL92Identifier is a dictionary object identifier that conforms to the rules of SQL-92. SQL-92 states that identifiers for dictionary objects are limited to 128 characters and are case-insensitive (unless delimited by double quotes), because they are automatically translated into uppercase by the system. You cannot use reserved words as identifiers for dictionary objects unless they are delimited. If you attempt to use a name longer than 128 characters, SQLException X0X11 is raised.
Derby defines keywords beyond those specified by the SQL-92 standard (see SQL reserved words).
