I'm back on my project involving Scott Klement's JDBCR4. And I ran into a problem.

I have a table, in a MySQL database, with a column of type "MEDIUMTEXT" (which I understand to be some sort of CLOB). Squirrel (which is using the exact same JDBC driver that JDBCR4 is using) sees it as a MEDIUMTEXT, SequelPro (which is MySQL-centric) sees it as a MEDIUMTEXT.

But my JDBCR4 application sees it (calling the ResultSetMetaData.getColumnTypeName method; I don't remember whether Scott front-ended that method in the standard JDBCR4, or whether I had to front-end it myself) as a VARCHAR, albeit with an impossibly huge maximum size.

Can anybody offer me any insights?
