Subject Custom data types
Date Sun, 02 Dec 2007 22:47:31 GMT
I've got a custom (PostgreSQL) data type

*create* type couk_cleverthinking_gwappo_db_Money *as* (local_value *numeric*(11,2),mnemonic

and a corresponding Class definition.

public class Money extends PGobject implements SQLData, Serializable, Cloneable{
public BigDecimal localValue;
public String currencyMnemonic;

After a bit of effort I got this working in JDBC(the key being PGConnection.addType()).

Please could somebody give me some pointers on how to go about incorporating this custom type/mapping
into OpenJPA.
Eg. is this a Value Handler or Class Strategy problem (or am I barking up the wrong tree altogether)?

very best wishes
