Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (DERBY-3330) provide support for unique constraint over nullable columns
Date Fri, 22 Feb 2008 18:25:44 GMT
Existing unique constraint will have only non nullable columns but it is 
to make columns null able (using statement "alter table <table name> alter
column <column name> null") .
Making columns null able isn't allowed on a column participating in 
unique constraint
but as a part of this patch I have made that checking optional (only in 
case of soft
upgrade it will throw an exception). Existing backing index will use the 
new code
 once the columns are made null able.
