Subject [jira] [Created] (DERBY-6340) Add support for CREATE TYPE AS <existing type> (synonym types)
Date Fri, 06 Sep 2013 11:58:51 GMT
Dyre Tjeldvoll created DERBY-6340:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: Add support for CREATE TYPE AS <existing type> (synonym types)
                 Key: DERBY-6340
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6340
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: SQL
            Reporter: Dyre Tjeldvoll
            Assignee: Dyre Tjeldvoll


The SQL standard (2003) chapter 11.41 <user-defined type definition> allows the creation
of synonyms or aliases for an existing type: CREATE TYPE AS <predefined type>. By allowing
this in Derby we would simplify migration from, and interoperation with, other databases.
