In the generator source, look for files template/sql/base/<db
name>/db.props. There is one for every database, it contains the mapping
Torque type -> database type

I have tried to generate a clob field using the postgresql setting and it
looks fine to me (I could not run the classes, I do not have a postgresql
installation running here). For this, I used the schema.xml from the
tutorial, and changed the ISBN number to CLOB:


  <table name="book" description="Book Table">
      description="ISBN Number"/>

Perhaps you have another issue in your schema.xml.
Regarding the money type, it is not supported natively by Torque because it
is postgresql-specific. You can try and change the db.props file in the
genrator and insert it (no idea whether that works), or you can change the
mapping of an unused Torque datatype to money (that should work, but is
very unintuitive if one reads the schema.xml)

Everything you can do in the schema.xml, you should do in the schema.xml.
Primary keys are autoincrement in most cases (the only exception known to
me is mysql), but it does not hurt to specify it by setting
