Subject Re: need to *set* REMARKS field of DatabaseMetaData
Date Fri, 07 Sep 2007 22:33:36 GMT
Hi Geoff,

Several DatabaseMetaData methods return ResultSets which have a column 
named REMARKS. For instance, getColumns(), getTables(), and 
getProcedures() return ResultSets which contain a REMARKS column. The 
contents of these columns are determined by queries stored in the 
following Derby source file: 
java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/jdbc/metadata.properties. In order to 
change the contents of these columns, you would have to edit those 
queries and build your own Derby engine.

Hope this helps,
