Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-499) Expose BOOLEAN datatype to end users
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2006 18:14:25 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-499?page=comments#action_12362231 ] 

Kathey Marsden commented on DERBY-499:
--------------------------------------

For metadata.java, you may want to avoid  additional canons because it would mean that you
would also have to update the bumpversion target.  (The output of this test changes with every
new version).  It would best I think  if the difference can be handled programatically in
the test.

In terms of when this should be addressed,  my personal opinion is that it is  never good
to have test failures for any significant length of time.   When do you expect to submit your
next patch?

> 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.
