Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-499) Expose BOOLEAN datatype to end users
Date Fri, 13 Jan 2006 01:31:20 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-499?page=comments#action_12362582 ] 

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-499:
-------------------------------------

It's, admittedly, an odd set of casts and I wonder if anyone really needs them. The casts
between BOOLEAN and CLOB are inherited from the old Cloudscape days. It appears to me that
these are required casts according to section 6.12 of volume 2 of the 2003 ANSI spec.

> 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.
