Hi McKinley,


I have already changed that.

Thanks for reporting.

Betreff: Re: Why auto UPPER CASE for the column name


Oh, no trouble at all. I just merge whenever I update. I haven't submitted a patch because
I didn't want to push a design change for something that is not too common (camel case table
and column names).

The patch is a just a few lines of code. I'll take a look at see if it is fit for general

For what it is worth, in Empire-db I maintain a personal patch during all updates that turns
upper case off. I use the straight table and column names in codegen too and I apply quoted
identifiers for the string name on each.

Is there any reason?,db.album.title,db.album.index,db.album.serieId,"title"));
SELECT t1.alb_id, t1.alb_title, t1.alb_index, t1.alb_ser_id, t1.alb_title AS TITLE

This is not consistent in case of using lower case for defining columns name and this is too
intrusive... I think this is the responsability of the developper and not empire-db to decide.

Please advise.
