> The "CAST function" section of the Derby Reference manual says that Derby supports the
casts which were legal in SQL 92. There are a number of casts which are legal in SQL 2003
which Derby does not support. These include the casting of exact numerics to varchar and the
casting of inexact numerics to char and varchar. The SQL 2003 rules are defined in part 2
section 6.12 (<cast specification>). Derby should support the liberal 2003 casting behavior.
