Hi Andrew,<br>
I am just about ready to post the Synonym patch. I will also need to
enhance <b>dblook </b>to emit synonym info, but I will take that up
in a different patch.<br>
The issue I am grappling with right now is how best to store synonym
info in system catalog. I have couple of different options implemented,
both have good and not-so-good issues with them. An example of synonym
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; CREATE SYNONYM mySchema.myTable FOR targetSchema.targetTable<br>
So, I am trying to store mySchema, myTable, targetSchema and
targetTable in SYSALIASES table. First two are OK. I see three options
in trying to store them:<br>
  <li>Add SynonymAliasInfo, much like the current RoutineAliasInfo.
This would store both targetSchema and targetTable in a serialized Java
object. Works good, but we are adding a new java object to system
catalogs. Since Derby has no way to access individual fields of java
objects, reading them in SQL is, in general, is a hassle. But this case
may be OK, since we only have two fields.</li>
  <li>Add extra columns to SYSALIASES.</li>
  <li>Use existing catalog column to encode this info. I see
javaClassName column that can hold encoded targetSchema and targetTable
info, but it is ugly to store two different identifiers in one column.
I would then rename javaClassName to more generic name that is suitable
for both routines and synonyms.</li>
Anyone has any suggestions? If I don't hear anything soon, I will post
a patch using option 1.<br>
