Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-499) Expose BOOLEAN datatype to end users
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2005 00:15:03 GMT
Just a heads up: I'm the person who is requesting new datatype ids from 
the Open Group. Given the long lead time that this has entailed, I think 
it is best to roll all of our requests together. I am requesting a 
datatype id for XML as well as for BOOLEAN. I intend to ask for the ids 
specified in this patch. I will keep the community posted if these ids 
have to change.
