ZF-3191: Modify describeTable to return the actual data type for a column as well as the domain type?
This may impact on users of other databases that support domains, but I can only be sure about the RDBMS I'm using - PostgreSQL. In situations where a column data type has been set to a domain type, describeTable returns the name of that domain in the DATA_TYPE entry, but the actual base type of the domain is unavailable.
Perhaps an additional entry (say BASE_DATA_TYPE) for each column could be added to the $desc array returned by describeTable() denoting the actual data type? For columns that don't use domains, or databases that don't support domains, this could be equal to DATA_TYPE.
I would be happy to produce a patch myself, but I am new to ZF. If someone could provide some pointers as to the places I'd need to look other than the Database Adapters, I'll give it a go.
I have searched the issue tracker and can not find any duplicates of this. Apologies if one exists and escaped my attention.
