Subject Re: IBatis 3 TypeHandler resolution
Date Tue, 22 Sep 2009 23:28:39 GMT
No, that's actually correct.  If you specify  the JDBC type in the type
handler, then you have to specify it in the result map.  However, if you
don't specify the JDBC type in either, that should work too, but will
override ALL string types (for example).
The reason is that iBATIS doesn't introspect the column type at runtime.
