I would like to discuss an issue ResultSetMetaData.getColumnTypeName().
Within current implementation of PostgreSQL JDBC getColumnTypeName()
returns only locale name of a type, even if it is a user-defined type.
The JDBC docs says:
"...returns type name used by the database. If the column type is a
user-defined type, then a fully-qualified type name is returned."
It means, that any other type that is not defined within pg_catalog
should be returned with its schema name, so e.g. type my_price in schema
blabla should be returned as "blabla.my_price". It's quite simple to fix
it and I'm ready to do it, but before that I would like to ask about
your opinion about changing this behavior. I found this problem when I
needed to translate user-defined types to Java and without schema I
cannot be sure, that a type is the one that I want to translate (cause
there can be many types with the same local name).
I would be appreciated for your comments.
Ps. Kris - if we will accept, that getColumnTypeName() should return
qualified name, then that will cause small changes within
org.postgresql.jdbc2.TypeInfoCache class and I would like to know what
about my previous changes within this class that are related to array types.
