Subject Characters and bytes
Date Tue, 19 Jun 2007 10:09:34 GMT
Hi all,

In Oracle, you can specify character columns widths in bytes (the
default) or characters. The advantage of specifying column width in
characters is that you can attempt to store - say - 10 multi-byte
characters in a VARCHAR(10) column without getting an error.

Derby doesn't seem to have an equivalent clause in the CREATE TABLE
statement. What does it default to, and can the default be overridden?
