I have a scenario like follow (script generated with pg_dump) :
CREATE TABLE teste (
id integer NOT NULL,
ds character varying(20),
n2 character varying(10)
CREATE SEQUENCE teste_id_seq
INCREMENT BY 1
ALTER TABLE teste ALTER COLUMN id SET DEFAULT nextval('teste_id_seq'::regclass);
ALTER TABLE ONLY teste
ADD CONSTRAINT pk_teste PRIMARY KEY (id);
ALTER SEQUENCE teste_id_seq OWNED BY teste.id;
CREATE VIEW vteste AS
SELECT teste.id, teste.ds, teste.n2 FROM teste;
ALTER TABLE vteste ALTER COLUMN id SET DEFAULT nextval('teste_id_seq'::regclass);
Well this last line make a change on a view column and it works.
I do it because when inserting a row in the view vteste, I got a message error
like "teste.id does not accept NULL values"
Searching in the internet, I found a message where Tom Lane suggest to do this.
Well, I don´t found anything in Postgresql manual saying that we can do it in
views, but I don´t found anything saying that we don´t must do it too.
Since pg_dump generates the script with this definition, I think that they
must be supported by PostgreSQL
The only thing that I have a objection is because this don´t appear in pgadmin
views definition. And we don´t mind that this "ALTER COLUMN" exists in the
I want to request/suggest that views script generates a complete script in the
sqlpane like when select a table (with index,triggers creation sql scripts) or
with at least this DDL, since we can´t see it anywhere.
May we have a icon for this alter columns in the view definition tree too ?
I´m using pgAdmin 1.6.3 in a winXP pro SP2 with Postgresql 8.2.4
Thanks in Advance
