Subject Re: Sybase issue... TEXT column when null insert/updates fail, but when defined as VARCHAR nulls work?
Date Mon, 19 Jan 2009 18:27:52 GMT
Sorry, I overlooked the fact that I didn't provide it. 

As far as I know, there are no plans to change the implementation in 
JConnect. On occasion, I can sometimes get them to correct a bug when I 
scout it out, but issues like this are up to the powers that be that 
decide the priority of the issues. If enough people make noise about a 
particular problem they will get resolved though, and this might be one of 
those issues as I have seen quite a few people run into this.

I personally stayed away from the jTDS driver due to the lack of XA 
support and the fact that I like my job here at Sybase.

I hope this helps....

Care to also share your StreamTypeHandlerCallback class? (I don't
believe that's a base class in ibatis, only the interface of
I could probably figure out how to write it, but hey, you know...
stand on the shoulders of giants... ok at least that's my excuse for
being lazy and copy and pasting:)
