List all liquibase sql types

88

I try to find documentation on the supported types that can be used in change log files. But cannot find it. Is there any document, site or something similar where I can find all types-specific issues. For example clob type is supported in databases with different types. And I have to use something like:

<property name="clob.type" value="clob" dbms="oracle,h2,hsqldb"/>
<property name="clob.type" value="longtext" dbms="mysql"/>
<column name="clob1" type="${clob.type}">
    <constraints nullable="true"/>
</column>

I hope there is a resource where all liquibase types are described.

For reference, this is the groovy script I've used to generate this output:

@Grab('org.liquibase:liquibase-core:3.5.1')

import liquibase.database.core.*
import liquibase.datatype.core.*

def datatypes = [BooleanType,TinyIntType,IntType,MediumIntType,BigIntType,FloatType,DoubleType,DecimalType,NumberType,BlobType,DatabaseFunctionType,UnknownType,DateTimeType,TimeType,TimestampType,DateType,CharType,VarcharType,NCharType,NVarcharType,ClobType,CurrencyType,UUIDType]
def databases = [MySQLDatabase, SQLiteDatabase, H2Database, PostgresDatabase, UnsupportedDatabase, DB2Database, MSSQLDatabase, OracleDatabase, HsqlDatabase, FirebirdDatabase, DerbyDatabase, InformixDatabase, SybaseDatabase, SybaseASADatabase]
datatypes.each {
    def datatype = it.newInstance()
    datatype.finishInitialization("")
    println datatype.name
    databases.each { println "$it.simpleName: ${datatype.toDatabaseDataType(it.newInstance())}"}
    println ''
}

I've found the liquibase.database.typeconversion.core.AbstractTypeConverter class. It lists all types that can be used:

protected DataType getDataType(String columnTypeString, Boolean autoIncrement, String dataTypeName, String precision, String additionalInformation) {
    // Translate type to database-specific type, if possible
    DataType returnTypeName = null;
    if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("BIGINT")) {
        returnTypeName = getBigIntType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("NUMBER") || dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("NUMERIC")) {
        returnTypeName = getNumberType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("BLOB")) {
        returnTypeName = getBlobType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("BOOLEAN")) {
        returnTypeName = getBooleanType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("CHAR")) {
        returnTypeName = getCharType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("CLOB")) {
        returnTypeName = getClobType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("CURRENCY")) {
        returnTypeName = getCurrencyType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("DATE") || dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase(getDateType().getDataTypeName())) {
        returnTypeName = getDateType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("DATETIME") || dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase(getDateTimeType().getDataTypeName())) {
        returnTypeName = getDateTimeType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("DOUBLE")) {
        returnTypeName = getDoubleType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("FLOAT")) {
        returnTypeName = getFloatType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("INT")) {
        returnTypeName = getIntType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("INTEGER")) {
        returnTypeName = getIntType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("LONGBLOB")) {
        returnTypeName = getLongBlobType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("LONGVARBINARY")) {
        returnTypeName = getBlobType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("LONGVARCHAR")) {
        returnTypeName = getClobType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("SMALLINT")) {
        returnTypeName = getSmallIntType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("TEXT")) {
        returnTypeName = getClobType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("TIME") || dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase(getTimeType().getDataTypeName())) {
        returnTypeName = getTimeType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.toUpperCase().contains("TIMESTAMP")) {
        returnTypeName = getDateTimeType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("TINYINT")) {
        returnTypeName = getTinyIntType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("UUID")) {
        returnTypeName = getUUIDType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("VARCHAR")) {
        returnTypeName = getVarcharType();
    } else if (dataTypeName.equalsIgnoreCase("NVARCHAR")) {
        returnTypeName = getNVarcharType();
    } else {
        return new CustomType(columnTypeString,0,2);
    }
