Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-1049) DatabaseFileSystem: mysql.ddl works for mysql5 but not mysql 4.1.20
Date Thu, 16 Aug 2007 09:51:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-1049?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12520187

Stefan Guggisberg commented on JCR-1049:

> mysql4.dll and mysql.ddl should have:

that's not a good idea since the max key limit is storage engine & mysql version dependant.

<quote src="http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/4.1/en/create-index.html">
Prefix lengths are storage engine-dependent (for example, a prefix can be up to 1000 bytes
long for MyISAM tables, 767 bytes for InnoDB tables). (Before MySQL 4.1.2, the limit is 255
bytes for all tables.) Note that prefix limits are measured in bytes, whereas the prefix length
in CREATE INDEX statements is interpreted as number of characters for non-binary data types
(CHAR, VARCHAR, TEXT). Take this into account when specifying a prefix length for a column
that uses a multi-byte character set.

the current 'create unique index' stmt in mysql.ddl is IMO a good compromise that will work
with most  mysql servers out there.

> Perhaps a new column ( primary key ) could get added to the table called uid, which is
actually an md5checksum of FSENTRY_PATH and FSENTRY_NAME.
