Yes, it's possible to add columns which are only available in-memory. It's also possible disable write-back feature for single columns..

You have different options:

Add the column to the databook, e.g.

Code: Select all
book.getRowDefinition().addColumnDefinition(new ColumnDefinition("MYCOL",
                                            new ObjectDataType()));

Use the right datatype, e.g. StringDataType, BigDecimalDataType, ...

Fill the values with a custom row calculator:

Code: Select all

The other option is that you define a column on server-side. The advantage is that such column will be sent automatically back to the server/storage. This doesn't mean that the column will be used for database operations.

The server-code:

Code: Select all
storage.getMetaData().addColumnMetaData(new ColumnMetaData("MYCOL",
