Subject RE: Question: Torque NULL handling on insert, update
Date Mon, 29 Oct 2007 13:55:15 GMT
Patrick is correct, primitives don't allow for NULL values
to be used.  FYI, there is also a defaultJavaType attribute
on the Database element that can be used to change all the 
getter/setter methods to objects.

FWIW, primitive is the "default" because it's generally 
more convenient for code writers to have native types 
than creating native objects all the time.  

That said, you're right in that how to deal with NULLs 
is not well documented.  In addition, one of the ToDo's
for 4.0 is to improve on how these are handled (e.g. have
an isNull() test and a way to set a null value if using
