Here is yet another patch for DatabaseMetaData which does several things:
a) Currently an extra key is returned in both getExportedKeys() and getImportedKeys(). So a foreign key relationship, duplicate keys are returned. This has been fixed.
b) PK_NAME is now returned.
c) The whole SQL query has been optimized (no more ugly inner selects).
d) The getExportedKeys() and getImportedKeys() implementation has been put into a single getImportedExportedKeys() to save duplcating the code.
e) KEY_SEQ is now also returned.
There is however one problem to do with multiple foreign key columns. Should they be returned as a single row, separated by commas? Or returned in separate rows? By multiple foreign key columns I mean, "alter table ptable add constraint ptable_fkey foreign key (pcol1, pcol2) references ftable (fcol1, fcol2)".
I think returning separate rows is the most correct way to do it, assuming the SQL statement above is equivalent to 2 separate fkeys.
Any comments are welcome,
