It seems that:
- When a column which is already created, once updated in the Java code,
updatedoesn’t modify it. I can understand minimizing its
lengthmay mandate data change before the update happens, but why it is not done when increasing the
length. Even minimizing can automatically happen if there is no record more than the needed length.
- When a column/field name conflicts with the reserved words, there is an exception. I guess Hibernate can have a list of all reserved words, and gracefully handles these conditions.
I am asking if there is a possibility to consider these scenarios, so the Hibernate user is not encountered with some surprises along the way.
