I would like to export the output from SchemaUpdate to a file. This is implemented for SchemaExport but it is not implemented for SchemaUpdate.
The reason is that I don't want to execute the output from SchemaUpdate directly. Because I want to change it. For example
I want to add drop statements for some tables.
I want to change the generate alter table add column statements to alter table change column in some cases, because the name is changed and I don't want to drop the data of my column.
Could you add this improvement to Hibernate.
Can you also change the ant HibernateTool hbm2ddl
You can set an outputfilename for the case update=false and it runs SchemaExport.
But if it runs SchemaUpdate ( update=true ), then outputfilename is not used.
I would like to use this property for the improvement.
