Jira issue originally created by user dnt:
I've created a custom type that stores its data in a VARCHAR field. As requiresSQLCommentHint() returns true the value returned by getName() is used as type hint. If I change the length of the field in the entity mapping the scheme won't be updated because getName() still returns the same string. Now I would like to add the length to the returned string. Because this requires access to the fieldDeclaration I suggest to pass this array as paramater to getName().
I don't get what the problem is here. Unfortunately I don't know who to poke here. Seems the user from JIRA is not the same as on GitHub. Closing this for now.
