Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-6010) Reference Manual should clarify what ALTER TABLE ADD COLUMN does
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2012 23:05:20 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6010?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Kim Haase updated DERBY-6010:

    Attachment: rrefsqlj81859.html

Attaching DERBY-6010.diff and rrefsqlj81859.html, adding a paragraph to the ALTER TABLE topic.
I hope this is sufficient.

M       src/ref/rrefsqlj81859.dita

I should mention that this doc issue results from the same discussion on the derby-user list
that led to the creation of DERBY-6006, although the relationship of this issue to that one
may not be obvious.

Thanks in advance for any comments.

> The documentation should state explicitly that ALTER TABLE ADD COLUMN adds the new column
at the end of the table row. If you need to change a column (for example, to change its data
type), the only way to do so is to drop the column and add a new one, and this changes the
ordering of the columns.
