Subject [jira] Updated: (TORQUE-27) Need ability to pass global user-configurable platform-specific hints to templates
Date Tue, 10 Oct 2006 22:45:20 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TORQUE-27?page=all ]

CG Monroe updated TORQUE-27:

    Attachment: XMLOptionsTagSupport.zip

Support for zero or more XML <option key=".." value=".."> tags to be nested in the database,
column, index, unique, and forgeign-key tags.  Intended to be a way that platform or custom
information can be passed to templates.

E.g., statements like:

#if ( {table.getOption("mysql-table-type")})

Can be added into templates.  Then the value for "mysql-table-type" can be defined in the
schema XML like:

<table ....>
   <option key="mysql-table-type" value="INNOB" />

> It would be useful to provide a generic mechanism to enable the user to pass global platform-specific
hints to templates. For example, for MySQL it is desirable to explicitly specify the type
of table to be created, e.g., CREATE TABLE foo (...) Type = InnoDB. Such global hints could
then be specified by the user through platform specific properties or property files, as in:

> platform.properties:
> mysql.table.hint=Type = InnoDB. 
> A matching table.vm template might look something like:
> # -----------------------------------------------------------------------
> # $table.Name
> # -----------------------------------------------------------------------
> $generator.parse("$basepath/drop.vm", "", "table", $tbl)
> CREATE TABLE $table.Name
> (
> etc...
> ) $platform.getProperty('mysql.table.hint');
> Without such a capability it is necessary to hard-code the required customizations into
the templates, which is a rather inflexible and inconvenient way of doing it.
