Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-695) Re-enable the TINYINT datatype
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2005 23:58:59 GMT
My apologies for the colorful language. I do recall a general discussion 
about how there was no standard for optimizer hints. But I don't recall 
ANSI's silence on the matter being put forward as an objection.

Cheers,
-Rick
