Hi again,

Is it possible to specify a separator for the ddl file generation? (for
both output files: drop.sql and create.sql)

EclipseLink generates files like:

Personally i expected that it should be like:

I hoped that the ddl generator would add such separators depending on
the chosen targetDatabase. Is there a way to convince eclipseLink to add
; at the end of every sql statement?

You can extend the database class that is being used, and adapt its behavior to your needs.

There should be a property for this but there is not, please file an

You can cause the ddl to be generated in the same manner as EclipseLink
using the native SchemaManager.

DatabaseSession session = entityManagerFactory.getServerSession();
SchemaManager mgr = new SchemaManager(session)
mgr.outputCreateDDLToFile(createDDLFilePath); // set create ddl file name
mgr.outputDropDDLToFile(dropDDLFilePath);// sets drop ddl file name
mgr.setCreateSQLFiles(true); // writes statement terminator
mgr.replaceDefaultTables(true, true); // generates both drop and create ddl

There is already an enhancement request for this feature:

If you use apache-ant, you might consider adding these lines to your build
<fixcrlf srcdir="${basedir}/build/sql" />
<replace dir="${basedir}/build/sql" token="${line.separator}"
value=";${line.separator}" summary="true" />
