Fix Version/s: 1.1.0
Opening a JIRA report on Tim's behalf.
I turned the schema tool loose on a MySQL production database this
afternoon and it failed. The essence of the problem appears that DDL was
being generated with a type declaration of this form:
In MySQL, the proper form is:
ALTER TABLE fubar MODIFY col1 int(10) unsigned;
Checking other options indicates that similar constructs such as CREATE
TABLE are likewise defective.
I looked at the svn trunk head source code in
org.apache.openjpa.jdbc.sql.MySQLDictionary.java and the parent class
DBDictionary.java. The offending method appears to be:
1508: public String getTypeName(Column col)
This method has no override in MySQLDictionary, but apparently needs
one. I think it's a minor mod, but I'm not currently set up to build and
test in the environment where the offending database exists.
This is a SEVERE error. It causes generation of defective SQL for
SQL-generating options and causes live updates to schemas to fail.
I don't have a Jira login at present, so if someone could log this, it
would be appreciated.
