1. Hibernate postgresql/hsqldb TEXT column incompatibility problem stackoverflow.com
I have a problem using Hibernate and PostgreSQL for production and HSQLDB for testing.
2. Hibernate column as TEXT forums.oracle.com
There is a JDBC forum which is probably more appropriate for this. Hibernate doesn't have 'types'. It maps between java types and database types. And far as I know in a database a 'text' type, specified exactly like that, has a size of one character. To be bigger it must have a size qualifier such as 'text(128)'
