Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1490) Provide ALTER TABLE RENAME COLUMN functionality

Yip Ng commented on DERBY-1490:
-------------------------------

Hi Bryan, thanks for working on this feature!

I am having trouble applying the patch cleanly with the current trunk (rev# 468656) though.
 I think its 
probably due to some recent check-in with master outputs that conflicts with the current patch.
 I did 
however reviewed the diff files and they look reasonable to me.  Some comments regarding your
questions:

1)  IMHO, since Derby already have support for RENAME TABLE and RENAME INDEX statement, 
    I think RENAME COLUMN would be a natural fit for this feature than the other form.
    
2)  The patch's test coverage is good and I think adding testcases with synonym would be a
nice addition.  

3) and 4)  I am ok with the behavior you described.

Since the lang/alterTable.sql is already setup to run in SQL authorization mode, I was wondering
if it can also be run in legacy mode(non-SQL authorization) as well?  (Perhaps another jira
entry should address this issue since it applies to other lang tests in general.)

> Provide a way to rename a column in an existing table. Possible syntax could be:
>   ALTER TABLE tablename RENAME COLUMN oldcolumn TO newcolumn;
> Feature should properly handle the possibility that the column is currently used in constraints,
views, indexes, triggers, etc.
