Georg Kallidis updated TORQUE-358:
----------------------------------
    Summary: HTML and XDOC generation -schema table fields inherits attribute value if not set  (was: HTML and XDOC generation -schema tabl fields inherits attribute value if not set)

>                 Key: TORQUE-358
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TORQUE-358
>             Project: Torque
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Templates
>    Affects Versions: 4.1
>            Reporter: Georg Kallidis
>            Priority: Major
>             Fix For: 4.1

> Changing the example schema (src/test/schema.xml) adding a field e.g
>  
> {code:java}
> <column
> name="contactdata"
> required="true"
> type="VARCHAR"
> size="500"
> />
> {code}
> in table "a" _after_ field "name" having a default value ("a_name") the HTML and XDOC outputs for field "contactdata" the default value from the preceding field. This happens only if it is a column with another column of the same type is set before. As a consequence the tests in JUNit - Test TestProcessing fail (test*docTemplate) - SQL and OM classes generation is not affected.
>  
> Another example of a schema.xml change. Result is that CURRENT_TIMESTAMP is in HTML/XDOC output for *both* fields (created_at, updated_at), while SQL and Java generation is done correctly.
>  
> {code:java}
> <column
> name="created_at"
> required="true"
> type="TIMESTAMP"
> default="CURRENT_TIMESTAMP"
> scale="6"
> />
> <column
> name="updated_at"
> required="true"
> type="TIMESTAMP"
> scale="6"
> />
> {code}
>  
>  
> Fixing seems to me not easy as far as I can see - some complex velocity inheritance mechanism (velocity 1.7) is used, the fields seems to inherit from  other fields in the same table.
> Workaround may be done by overriding explicitely the attribute resetting it in schema.xml.
> But I think this feature is neither at the core of Torque nor it is documented (I did not know about it before).
> [https://db.apache.org/torque/torque-4.0/index.html] states quite lakonikely:
> _torque-templatesThe Torque Templates contain the building blocks used by the generator to create the O/R classes, SQL scripts *and the like*. You can extend or change the templates if you want to customize the output of the generator, or even write templates of your own._
> Generation of SQL and OM classes is not concerned (apparently uses different code). What about, just skipping this (almost unknown) feature (HTML and XDOC generation), until it is fixed/reimplemented in an upcoming release?
