[jira] [Created] (DDLUTILS-289) Support for rowid column type in Oracle

JIRA jira@apache.org
Antonio Robirosa created DDLUTILS-289:
-----------------------------------------

             Summary: Support for rowid column type in Oracle
                 Key: DDLUTILS-289
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DDLUTILS-289
             Project: DdlUtils
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core - Oracle
    Affects Versions: 1.0
         Environment: Ubuntu
Oracle Database 11g Release 11.2.0.4.0 - 64bit Production
dbDriverVersion: Oracle JDBC driver : 12.1.0.2.0
            Reporter: Antonio Robirosa
            Assignee: Thomas Dudziak


h2. Description
Allow DDL Utils to read tables which contain columns with the rowid data type.

h2. Benefits
DDL Utils can be used in Oracle databases which contains materialized views with fast refresh -which required rowids-.

h2. Proposed change
To add a custom one-way mapping to the row id column type in the class Oracle8Platform to allow reading the information of thecolumns.

h2. Current Situation
I am currently working on eCommerce Project with a eCommerce Suite which uses DDL Utils and we receive the following error when tables with rowid columns in the database exist:

{code}

{code}

h2. Example for the tests
The materialized view proposed on this article [The Trouble with Triggers|http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/testcontent/o58asktom-101055.html] must work with DDL utils:
{code}
SQL> create table primary_currency
   ( country varchar2(2) primary key,
   currency varchar2(3)
    )
    /
Table created.

SQL> create table other_currencies
   ( country varchar2(2),
  currency varchar2(3),
   constraint other_currencies_pk
   primary key(country,currency)
   )
   /
Table created.
SQL> alter table other_currencies add
  constraint
must_have_at_least_one_primary
  foreign key(country)
  references
primary_currency(country)
   /
Table altered.
SQL> create materialized view log
   on primary_currency with rowid
   /
Materialized view log created.

SQL> create materialized view log
  on other_currencies with rowid
  /
Mat  erialized view log created.

SQL> create materialized view primary_is_not_other
  refresh fast
  on commit
  as
  select a.rowid arid, b.rowid brid
   from primary_currency a, other_currencies b
   where a.country = b.country
  and a.currency = b.currency
 /
Materialized view created.

SQL> alter table primary_is_not_other add constraint primary_curr_cannot_be_other  check (arid is null and brid is null)
 /
Table altered.
{code}
The view is created by Oracle with the type Table.
