Native Type Properties

Native Type Properties

Depending on the semantic category, you must set one or more of the following native type properties:
  • Maximum precision
  • Minimum precision
  • Default precision
  • Support for changes to precision
  • Maximum scale
  • Minimum scale
  • Default scale
  • Support for changes to scale
  • Unit of length, such as characters, bytes, and bits
  • For Gregorian date semantics, support for hour, minute, second, year, month, day, or time zone
  • For float semantics, radix of the precision and exponent
Set the maximum and minimum values for precision and scale to validate the following:
  • Imported database metadata
  • Data type of a column that an end user adds to a table in a mapping
The default precision, default scale, and the specification of whether the precision and scale can be modified apply to metadata that is manually defined by the user. If the precision or scale cannot be modified, then the default value and the maximum value must be set to the same value.
