Subject DdlUtils insists on altering unchanged columns when using MySql
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2007 13:48:02 GMT


I am writing program that uses DdlUtils to create and access a database.
With Derby it works ok, but when I switched to MySql I got a problem.
When I ask for the alterTablesSql, DdlUtils insists on altering columns
that are defined as 'required' without a default value. This seems to be
caused by MySql interpreting 'no default value' differently from
DdlUtils. The default value in the model read from the database contains
an empty string, while the default value in the model read from the xml
file has a null-value.


An example column definition:


<column name="DOMAIN"






I have temporarily fixed the problem by inserting the following code in
the postprocessModelFromDatabase method on line 1957 in


if(column.isRequired() && defaultValue != null &&
defaultValue.equals("")) {

    defaultValue = null;




But maybe there is another way to go about it?
