Subject Returning boolean from <select> statement and Oracle database
Date Fri, 29 Feb 2008 17:38:14 GMT


Because Oracle doesn't allow Boolean types for table columns, I'm using
varchar2 with permitted values Yes/No.


If I want to return these as part of a resultMap, I just use a
TypeHandlerCallback and everything works fine.


If, however, I want to just return a Boolean value from a <select>
statement, I think iBATIS cannot automatically map from text to Boolean.


If I'm wrong, please let me know!


At the moment, I'm using a class called  TextBoolean which has a method
setBooleanValue(...) that I just call booleanValue() on once it has been


  <select id="isFinalized" parameterClass="String" resultClass="
TextBoolean" >

     SELECT finalized booleanValue

       FROM things_to_finalize

      WHERE thing_id = #id#



This works, but it's a bit messy. It also needs to be plugged together
with my implementation of TypeCallbackHandler in order to keep this
logic in the same place.


Is there a neater way to do this?

Preferably one that doesn't require a bit of sneaky wiring outside of
the framework.
