    Why MIN/MAX functions work only on numbers?

      Hi all!

      I use PostgreSQL and JBoss 3.2.3.

      I'd like to perform a JBoss ql select that search the maximum value of a timestamp typed column.

      This fails because I get a find exception reporting me that the current timestamp value is a "Bad double".
      Do the newly introduced aggregate functions work only on number parameters?

      Another solution would be if I could create to each timestamp cmp field a pair containing the same value in long type.

      I don't want that these long fields become persistent fields, but I'd like that these fields can be used in a jboss ql select.

      Can I create these kind of fields?

      I saw that XDoclet has a @jboss.not-persisted-field tag, but there's no documentation concerning the purpose of this tag.

      Could anyone know the solution?
