We use the Eclipse reverse engineer to generate the *.hbm.xml-Files from the database. If the colum is defined as varchar the following mapping is generated.

Code:
<property name="my_column" type="java.lang.String">
    <column name="MY_COLUMN" length="50" />
</property>


If the column type changes to nvarchar the length attribute is missing.

Code:
<property name="my_column" type="java.lang.String">
    <column name="MY_COLUMN" />
</property>


Why doesn't it work with nvarchar?

What I do not understand is why the N-Types have no length in the JDBCToHibernateTypeHelper class.

Code:
org.hibernate.cfg.reveng.JDBCToHibernateTypeHelper
...

    // length is for string column
    public static boolean typeHasLength(int sqlType) {
       return (sqlType == Types.CHAR || sqlType == Types.DATE
             || sqlType == Types.LONGVARCHAR || sqlType == Types.TIME || sqlType == Types.TIMESTAMP
             || sqlType == Types.VARCHAR );
    }


I think that the following line is missing.
Code:
|| sqlType == Types.NCHAR || sqlType == Types.NVARCHAR || sqlType == Types.NCLOB

Does anyone have a work around for this issue - I am attempting to generate from a SQL Server schema with a lot of nvarchar fields and don't won't to code the length's by hand...

Thanks
