Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-499) Expose BOOLEAN datatype to end users
Date Wed, 16 Sep 2009 22:59:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-499?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12756274#action_12756274

Rami Ojares commented on DERBY-499:
-----------------------------------

Isn't it about time this issue is picked up?
I mean boolean type is the simplest and most elementary of all datatypes.
It seems quite amazing that this type would be too hard to implement whereas Derby has such
obscure and useless types like XML?

I mean it almost seems the world has gone mad! ;-)

But seriously, why did you abandon the implementation Rick?

I would be happy to help when time permits.

> 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.
