pgsql: Fix several DDL issues of generated columns versus inheritance
Fix several DDL issues of generated columns versus inheritance
Several combinations of generated columns and inheritance in CREATE
TABLE were not handled correctly. Specifically:
- Disallow a child column specifying a generation expression if the
parent column is a generated column. The child column definition
must be unadorned and the parent column's generation expression will
- Prohibit a child column of a generated parent column specifying
default values or identity.
- Allow a child column of a not-generated parent column specifying
itself as a generated column. This previously did not work, but it
was possible to arrive at the state via other means (involving ALTER
TABLE), so it seems sensible to support it.
Add tests for each case. Also add documentation about the rules
involving generated columns and inheritance.
