Description John Baker 2008-12-15 00:55:03 UTC
These files use hardcoded fixed length types, better if kept in one place.


public static MetaData.getFixedTypes();

However when a size is specified for a field, a size is preset for most types.
Comment 1 John Baker 2008-12-19 18:41:14 UTC
enum org.netbeans.modules.db.metadata.model.api.SQLType defines "Fixed length types" but contains some variable types,
such as VARCHAR or does Fixed length types have a different meaning here?

I'll take a closer look at this during bugfix phase, unless, do you need this now, John?  Sorry, trying to stay focused
on my feature work...
Comment 3 David Vancouvering 2008-12-19 19:03:04 UTC
Well, I took a quick look at that.  It's a bogus comment, I had something in there but I removed it, and left the
comment by accident.  This covers *all* types, with no distinction between fixed and variable.  That's probably a good
place to put this new method.
