Subject Re: likeIgnoreCase queries and EJBQL

Thanks Mike!

I’m not sure it this is a database plugin problem though. Doing regular case insensitive
queries works fine, it’s only queries created from EJBQL that fail. Also, the only place
in the Cayenne sources I can find a mention of “ucase" is in EJBQLTranslator’s visitUpper().
Perhaps changing that method to do upper( rather than {fn ucase. might solve the problem?
I’m going to try that out :).
