FAQ
Comments / Descriptions for Attributes
--------------------------------------

Key: CAY-659
URL: http://issues.apache.org/cayenne/browse/CAY-659
Project: Cayenne
Type: New Feature

Components: CayenneModeler GUI
Reporter: Philip Copeland


We'd really like to see a description field added to the attribute definition page. We've done several large projects now using Cayenne and love the product - however - its very frustrating not being able to document attributes in the modeler. It is the central tool that we all use to view / edit the database schema and I really think it would help a great deal to be able to have some additional information in there.

I saw that someone else had suggested this a couple of years ago - and you were concerned about the impact on memory. My suggestion would be not to load these if possible. I'd prefer to have the comments and waste a little memory rather than not have them.

Cheers

Philip
