Subject [jira] [Created] (AMBARI-6099) Change restart_required from BOOLEAN to SMALLINT
Date Thu, 12 Jun 2014 15:13:01 GMT
Jonathan Hurley created AMBARI-6099:

             Summary: Change restart_required from BOOLEAN to SMALLINT
                 Key: AMBARI-6099
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Task
    Affects Versions: 1.6.0
            Reporter: Jonathan Hurley
            Priority: Minor

We avoid the use of the "boolean" data type in our databases since many vendors do not support
it and sometimes the behavior can be unpredictable in JPA.

BUG-18772 addresses and issue where the Postgres upgrade to schema 1.6.0 was failing because
Postgres can not convert a SMALLINT to a boolean.

We should aim to be consistent in our approach to databases, and that means that we should
continue to treat 0/1 fields like restart_required as a SMALLINT in Postgres, even though
newer version of that database do support BOOLEAN fields.
