Subject [jira] Commented: (IBATIS-586) Allow custom properties for columns
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2009 02:28:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IBATIS-586?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12680359#action_12680359

Jeff Butler commented on IBATIS-586:

Couple of questions....

1. For the use case you describe, why can't you just use a column override and rename the
property whatever you want?

2. I understand that there could be times when you might want to send a column based property
to a plugin.  I've got a simpler suggestion....how about adding something like a userProperty
or userString attribute to column override.  You could attach whatever String you wanted to
a column and a plugin could retrieve it.

>             Project: iBatis for Java
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Tools
>    Affects Versions: 2.3.3
>            Reporter: Dan Turkenkopf
>         Attachments: ibator-column-configuration.txt
> Ibator allows you to create nest custom property tags at the table level which are quite
useful in configuring plugins.
> However there's no way to provide the same capabilities on a column by column basis.
> The use case that drove me to add this feature is the need to capitalize certain columns
(first name and last name, etc) but not all the columns in the table.
> The attached patch adds an optional <column> tag underneath each <table>.
 The column tag supports the nesting of property tags underneath it for custom properties.
 It's possible that the ignoreColumn and columnOverride tags could be subsumed by the column
tag but it's not necessary.
> An alternate approach would be to create <columnProperty> tags that have the column
and the property name and value defined as a single tag.
