Trying to migrate from Progress 9.1D05 to Mysql 5.0.10a-beta-nt, using generic jdbc.

If a table in Progress contains indexes spanning multiple columns, MT generates wrong sql. Sounds to me like bug http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=11002 which you weren't able to reproduce. Hope I can provide you with enough information to do so.

Please read my thread on forum: http://forums.mysql.com/read.php?104,37224 where I describe some changes I had to make to MT xml to make it this far in the migration process.

This is the sql generated by MT for a single table. As you can see the sql for multi-column index bestilling_egenskab is wrong, and mysql complains:

Initializing JDBC driver ... 
Driver class MySQL JDBC Driver 3.1
Opening connection ... 
Connection jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/?user=<user>&password=<password>&useServerPrepStmts=false
Deactivate foreign key constraints.

CREATE TABLE `pub`.`bestilling_egenskab` (

  `egenskabsnr` BIGINT(10) NOT NULL,
  `book_sekvensnr` BIGINT(10) NOT NULL,
  INDEX `bestilling_egenskab` (`book_refnr`),
  INDEX `bestilling_egenskab` (`book_sekvensnr`),
  INDEX `bestilling_egenskab` (`egenskabsnr`),
  INDEX `book_refnr` (`book_refnr`),
  INDEX `egenskabsnr` (`egenskabsnr`)
An error occured while executing the SQL statement.
Duplicate key name 'bestilling_egenskab'

Reactivate foreign key constraints.

How to repeat:
Create this table in Progress 9.1D05 and try to migrate it with MTm using generic jdbc. This sql was extracted from progress using the mpro tool.

DROP TABLE bestilling_egenskab.
CREATE TABLE bestilling_egenskab (
  book_refnr integer FORMAT '->,>>>,>>9' DEFAULT 0 NOT NULL,
  book_sekvensnr integer FORMAT '>>>>>>9' DEFAULT 1 NOT NULL,
  egenskabsnr integer FORMAT '->,>>>,>>9' NOT NULL

CREATE INDEX bestilling_egenskab ON bestilling_egenskab (book_refnr, book_sekvensnr, egenskabsnr).
CREATE INDEX book_refnr ON bestilling_egenskab (book_refnr).
CREATE INDEX egenskabsnr ON bestilling_egenskab (egenskabsnr).

Suggested fix:
Generate correct sql for multicolumn indexes.
