Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-3888) ALTER TABLE ... ADD COLUMN cannot add identity columns
Date Tue, 20 May 2014 16:32:38 GMT

Mike Matrigali commented on DERBY-3888:
---------------------------------------

Does the SQL standard speak at all to this issue one way or another?

If not, does anyone know the behavior in other databases with respect to this issue?

> ALTER TABLE .. ADD COLUMN cannot be used to add an identity column. There is code to
handle identity columns, but it is disabled in the parser. See this thread on derby-user:
> http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/db-derby-user/200708.mbox/%3C46C5DAA9.8080507@sbcglobal.net%3E
> The code was disabled for DB2 compatibility. Since DB2 compatibility is not a goal for
Derby, we should see if we could re-enable it.
