Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2605) You can create BOOLEAN columns in 10.3
Date Tue, 15 May 2007 03:41:16 GMT

James F. Adams commented on DERBY-2605:

A B,

I think I prefer your approach.  I am updating my patch.

I have however found a couple of interesting things with the precision/scale/maximum width

1) Given table foo (x double precision), the check fails for:  create table bar(y) as select
2.0 * x from foo with no data
     because dtd.getScale() returns 1 and typeId.getMaximumScale() returns 0.  The datat ype
of column y is double precision.

2) The check fails for:   create table bar as select javaclassname from sys.sysaliases with
no data
    because dtd.getMaximumWidth() returns 2147483647 and typeId.getMaximumMaximumWidth() returns
    The data type of javaclassname is LONG VARCHAR.  I would expect the maximum length to
be 32700.  Integer.MAX_VALUE is specified
    as the maximum length of this column in SYSALIASESRowFactory.java.  I do not know if this
is a bug or was intentional but the resulting
    maximum length certainly exceeds the documented value for a LONG VARCHAR.

I am doing some more investigation.  I should be able to upload an updated patch in a couple
of days.

> The work on DERBY-64 seems to have opened up a wormhole by which you can create user
tables with BOOLEAN columns. The following script shows how to do this:
> drop table foo;
> create table foo
> as select systemalias from sys.sysaliases with no data;
> rename column foo.systemalias to boolcol;
> alter table foo
>   alter column boolcol null;
> select c.columndatatype
> from sys.syscolumns c, sys.systables t
> where t.tableid=c.referenceid
> and t.tablename='FOO';
> insert into foo( boolcol )
> values
> ( 0 ),
> ( 1 ),
> ( cast (null as int) )
> ;
> select * from foo;
