Subject [jira] Commented: (TORQUE-106) Use "boolean" sql type not "bit" sql type with MySQL
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2007 21:33:50 GMT

Will Glass-Husain commented on TORQUE-106:

Thanks for the detailed response.  

I'm not sure it makes sense though.  Torque already has hardcoded MySQL compatibility features.
 MySQL 5.0.3 was released March 23, 2005 -- over 2.5 years ago.  Gradually, all the MYSQL
users will hit this problem.    (And I'm guessing a large percentage of Torque users are MySQL

There may be other MySQL 5 optimizations that would be useful as well. (Subqueries were finally
supported in MYSQL 4.1, for example).   

Incidentally, Hibernate solved this issue with a MySQL and a MYSQL5 mode.

I guess in the meantime I'll make a custom adapter.    I see now that it's not too difficult.

> In MySQL 5.0.3 the meaning of the BIT data type changed.  It used to be equivalent to
tinyint(1) but now it is a new bitwise datatype.  This means that when Torque generates SQL
files with a "bit" data type (mapped to the Java boolean) it is incorrect.
> I suggest that Torque map the Torque "bit" type to the MySQL "Boolean" type instead when
generating SQL.  See the reference from the MySQL manual below.

> * BIT[(M)]
>       A bit-field type. M indicates the number of bits per value, from 1 to 64. The default
is 1 if M is omitted.
>       This data type was added in MySQL 5.0.3 for MyISAM, and extended in 5.0.5 to MEMORY,
InnoDB, and BDB. Before 5.0.3, BIT is a synonym for TINYINT(1).
>       A very small integer. The signed range is -128 to 127. The unsigned range is 0
to 255.
>       These types are synonyms for TINYINT(1). A value of zero is considered false. Non-zero
values are considered true:
