MySql is a stupid database in any case. But anyway...
I think we can safely change the tests to use lowercase table and
column names anyways. It won't matter semantically for the other
databases: in delimited mode they are supposed to use the name as-is,
and in undelimited mode they have to convert them to uppercase anyway.
So in both cases we should not run into any problems.
And after all its not about testing the databases but rather testing
DdlUtils handling. E.g. I changed the datatypes tests to not hit any
boundaries in PostgreSql which are somewhat different from the Java
type ones.

The problem is the stupid mapping to filenames that MySql does for
table names. Shouldn't be too hard for them to add a map table name ->
filename, shouldn't it ? But I digress ...

That's what the third argument in the addNativeTypeMapping is for.
E.g. for PostgreSql:

info.addNativeTypeMapping(Types.ARRAY, "BYTEA", Types.BINARY);

means that Types.ARRAY will be mapped to PostgreSql's type BYTEA which
when read back via the JdbcModelReader, will result in a Types.BINARY
This is for the ALTER TABLE stuff which otherwise would always try to
change the column type.
