I am using the DTP Framework with Eclipse 3.5.2
I can connect to various databases including MySql , Oracle,
Sql Server etc. However some of the columns do not show proper datatypes.
E.g for Oracle the NCLOB datatype column shows blank as shown in attached screenshot.

Similarly if I access the table from Java code and try to get the datatype using ColumnImpl.getDatatype() function, then the datatype is returned as null for some specific datatypes(NCLOB in Oracle,NVARCHAR2() in Oracle,etc )

Is this DTP limitation or am I missing something ?

Problem Solved :

I was able to fix the issue by changing the typecode for the concerned data types
in the .xmi files from the plugins below

org.eclipse.datatools.enablement.msft.sqlserver.dbdefinition_1.0.0.v200906161800
org.eclipse.datatools.enablement.oracle.dbdefinition_1.0.100.v200906161800
org.eclipse.datatools.enablement.sqlite.dbdefinition_1.0.1.v201002041110

I would like to contribute the changes to the open source plugins. Please suggest the right way to do so.

Hi Swati,

Please open bug on DTP in Eclipse Bugzilla and attach your changes as
patch files.
