Subject Server defaults - what are they?
Author bmckenna6
It seems that in order to understand various
application/component/sql requirements and
behaviors, I need to understand something
about "server defaults."

However, my references and my searches only
turn up inferences, rather than explanations.

I can begin to deduce that they refer to
specific SQL statements when tables and
fields are created, but I believe I need more.

I also guess that the term "server defaults"
or "server-side defaults" might mean different
things in different contexts. Perhaps not.

My context is Firebird.

If anyone can direct me to some explanatory
material or provide a brief explanation, I'd
be grateful.

I would have thought the IB6 docs had something
on this, but I couldn't find anything.
