> Change restart_required from BOOLEAN to SMALLINT
> ------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: AMBARI-6099
>                 URL:
>             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.
