Subject RE: Handling of database NULL - default value column to modeler?
Date Wed, 27 Aug 2008 15:38:09 GMT
After switching over to using the DbGenerator and DbMerger from flat SQL
files, I see this to be of fairly major importance. Since the database
doesn't know what default values should be, I'm finding myself reworking
a fair amount of code to add these where it wouldn't otherwise be

For something as cool and impressive as the DbGenerator is, I think it
deserves a priority higher than "someday" :)

Interesting. I just added a note to 
  in case we want to include this idea as part of that task. It really  
isn't that hard to implement: just a question of creating the GUI that  
works for different types of data (eg. compare long documentation data  
to short properties).
