Subject Identifier Limitations - once again
Date Sun, 12 Dec 2004 20:50:13 GMT
I know this has been discussed before, but there hasn't been a consus if 
those limitations should be extended...
At the moment, I patched Derby to allow longer identifier for 
index/constraint names, because the CMP engine I'm using, uses 
getMaxColumnNameLength() as limitation for index name.
Does anyone know of any metadata attribute that would specify the 
maximum allowed length for an index/constraint name? If there is such an 
attribute, I could live with that and would just fix the CMP engine? 
Otherwise we should really think about extending it to a decent value 
(e.g. 30 or 128).

btw: cloudscape 9 didn't have this limitation, it has been added in 
cloudscape 10/derby
