How to interpret the differences between these two manual pages?
I have mostly based jOOQ's CUBRID data type support to what is available here:
Unfortunately, that was not the best choice for the jOOQ source code generator, as it is reading db_attribute, which returns data types as defined here:
There is some confusion about a couple of data types. How to interpret this?
- The OBJECT, OID types aren't listed in the "Data Types" page
- What is the "_db_attribute" ELO type?
- "Data Types" mentions a "BIT VARYING" type, but "_db_attribute" returns "VARBIT". Is this a synonym?
- "Data Types" mentions various synonyms for what seems to be the SQL standard "NVARCHAR". "NVARCHAR", however, doesn't seem to exist, but "_db_attribute" returns "VARNCHAR" instead. Which synonyms work?
In the cases where there is confusion, I'm also interested in which type/name I should use when casting
