Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-499) Expose BOOLEAN datatype to end users
Date Wed, 21 Dec 2005 00:58:34 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-499?page=comments#action_12361007 ] 

Daniel John Debrunner commented on DERBY-499:
---------------------------------------------

Committed revision 358163 for patch bug499_rev4.diff.

I think the BOOLEAN type should be added to some of the table driven tests like parameterMapping.java
and casting.java before this jira entry is closed. In looking that the data type conversion
routines the other day it seems
that there are some strange conversions to/from BOOLEAN allowed. E.g. BOOLEAN to VARCHAR FOR
BIT DATA.

I did *not* commit the documentaton changes.

> Veaceslav Chicu started an email thread on 8 August 2005 titled "boolean type". He was
disappointed that Derby doesn't support the ansi BOOLEAN datatype. On closer inspection, Derby
does internally support this type but does not expose this support to end users.
> Derby should let users declare table columns of type BOOLEAN. This should be an indexable
datatype.
