3279954 - Column's default value is not adapted when the target DBMS is changed - SAP PD


  • Default value of table columns can be a reserved value defined in the DBMS resource file (see Script\Sql\Keywords\ReservedDefault).
  • Whereas it expresses the same meaning, the default value may differ depending on the targeted DBMS.
  • The value is preserved as is when the target DBMS is changed.
  • As an example, getdate() defined in a MSS Physical Data Model (PDM) should be replaced automatically by SYSDATE in an Oracle PDM.
