Still struggling with the gda_type to provider data type issue....
There is this new function:
const gchar* gda_server_provider_get_default_dbms_type
Just looked into it, but for mysql and postgresql it is useless, since it always returns NULL. For the mysql provider there is a file called "utils.c". In there is a function called gda_mysql_type_from_gda(). This is basically the translation table where I want to have access to. There is a also a utils.c for postgres, but appears to be setup differently, but assumes it works similar. How would this all come together?
I just want to be able to put in a G_TYPE_STRING as an argument in some function and get a provider dependent value back like "varchar" for mysql so I can use this in the new method of building a table.
Ah I see. Is it OK if I add in a function like this in gda-postgres-provider.c:
static const gchar *gda_postgres_provider_get_def_dbms_type (GdaServerProvider *provider,
g_return_val_if_fail (GDA_IS_SERVER_PROVIDER (provider), FALSE);
g_return_val_if_fail (GDA_IS_CONNECTION (cnc), FALSE);
return postgres_name_from_gda_type (gda_type);
(and matching declarations etc.) Tested locally and that appears to do the trick. This makes gda_server_provider_get_default_dbms_type
() work for postgresql.
