Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1491) Provide ALTER TABLE functionality to change a column's default value
Date Mon, 31 Jul 2006 21:06:16 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1491?page=comments#action_12424658 ] 
Bryan Pendleton commented on DERBY-1491:

Note to reviewers: I believe that the only changes needed for this new feature are parser
changes and tests. I believe that the existing execution code in AlterTableConstantAction.java
is fine as is. When I apply the patch in my environment, the feature seems to be working fine.

The two patches attached to this issue provide two alternate syntax possibilities. My current
feeling is that the ALTER TABLE ALTER COLUMN syntax is preferable.

Lastly, note that this patch is identical in its changes to sqlgrammar.jj as is the patch
attached to DERBY-119. The only difference in the two patches is in the test code. This patch
contains tests of changing a column's default value. The DERBY-119 patch contains tests of
changing a column's NULL constraint.

The syntax should probably some variant of the ALTER TABLE statement.
