DdlUtils uses the JDBC type that is returned by the driver (via
DatabaseMetaData), and only in a few cases modifies this type (e.g.
for Oracle which only has the NUMBER numeric type, but we want to have
e.g. BIGINT etc.).
In the case of MySql, I'd suggest that you try a newer driver to see
whether you get better results (not unlikely considering the
changelists of the last few drivers).
For DdlUtils 1.1 there are also some enhancements to the native type
mapping planned which will give a more finegrained control over the
mapping (e.g. http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DDLUTILS-86).
