DDLFinal

Specify whether a class created by a DDL statement is final.

Synopsis

[SQL]    DDLFinal=n

n is either 1 or 0. The default value is 1.

Description

When DDLFinal is enabled (n = 1), a class created by a DDL CREATE TABLE statement is final, meaning it cannot have subclasses.

Changing This Parameter

To set the desired value for DDLFinal from the Terminal, use the SetDDLFinal() method of the %SYSTEM.SQL class. See the class reference for details.

You can also change DDLFinal with the Config.SQL class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in the Editing the Active CPF section of the “Introduction to the Configuration Parameter File” chapter in this book).
