I am encountering an error trying to update a BOOLEAN type through an
updatable ResultSet. My table looks like this:
CREATE TABLE file_store (
path VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
network VARCHAR(32) NOT NULL,
is_directory BOOLEAN NOT NULL DEFAULT false,
PRIMARY KEY (path, network)
My SQL looks like this:
SELECT path, network, is_directory FROM file_store
WHERE path=? AND network=? AND is_directory=true FOR UPDATE OF path, network, is_directory
My Java code looks like this:
An exception is thrown in the call to updateBoolean() as follows:
java.sql.SQLException: An attempt was made to put a data value of type 'byte' into a data value of type 'BOOLEAN'.
It's a shame, I was looking forward to using the new BOOLEAN type before I roll out the next version of our software. For now I will fallback to SMALLINT. Does/will ALTER TABLE support a change from SMALLINT to BOOLEAN?
