Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-499) Expose BOOLEAN datatype to end users
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2005 22:48:08 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-499?page=all ]

Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-499:

    Attachment: bug499_doc.zip

I am attaching bug499_doc.zip, which contains changes to the Tuning and Reference guides.
This zip file contains:

o bug499_doc.diff - the svn diffs for these doc changes
o ref - a directory containing the html for the Reference guide, including these changes

I successfully built the html and pdf versions of these two documents. However, I had to increase
the vm's memory in order to build the pdf version of the Reference guide. I didn't explore
how much to increase the memory. I simply set the ant options as follows before invoking the

  export ANT_OPTS="-Xmx512m"

Here's a summary of the doc changes I made:


I added boolean to the table of getXXX() and setXXX() methods described in the section titled
"Use the appropriate getXXX and setXXX methods for the type"


I added a section on boolean to the "Data type" roundup.

I also added a row and column for boolean to the "CAST" page under "Built-in functions". I
also added to that page a paragraph describing the legal conversions to and from boolean.

> 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
