Subject Re: Is it possible to extend SchemaTool with MS SQL Server collation setting?
Date Wed, 31 Jan 2007 08:06:32 GMT

I don't know how you specify collation, but if it is expressible via  
the column type name, you could always set the "type-name" of the  
column in the schema file (e.g., setting the type-name to be "VARCHAR  

If it needs to be specific in the "CREATE TABLE" part, then the  
schematool doesn't have any built-in way to alter that. However, you  
can always make a custom subclass of the SQLServerDictionary and  
override the "public String[] getCreateTableSQL(Table table)" method,  
and make it do whatever you want.

Lastly, you could always use the default SQL generated by the  
schematool, and then just follow up with some custom SQL that issues  
"ALTER TABLE" statements that change whatever attributes of the  
tables you want.
