Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-396) Support for ALTER STATEMENT to DROP , MODIFY, RENAME a COLUMN
Date Tue, 08 Nov 2005 21:50:26 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-396?page=comments#action_12357085 ] 

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-396:
-------------------------------------

I think that the Oracle/Postgres RENAME syntax is straightforward and good enough. Its similarity
to Derby's RENAME TABLE syntax is also inviting. MySQL's syntax is, frankly, odd. ANSI and
DB2 are silent on the issue. So I say, go with the inviting, straightforward syntax already
embraced by two big players.
