Can't create table called User in PostgreSQL

Reported by cejka | February 14th, 2011 @ 12:12 PM

Framework version:
1.1.1

Reproduction steps:
1) Use PostgreSQL as a database in application.conf
2) Create model named User in your application
3) Run the application
4) In a browser call localhost:9000 to create application tables in database.
5) You get an error like this on a application console:

12:47:52,668 ERROR ~ Unsuccessful: create table User (id int8 not null, email varchar(255), password varchar(255), username varchar(255), primary key (id))
12:47:52,668 ERROR ~ ERROR: syntax error at or near "User"

Details:

@Entity public class User extends Model {}

...framework automatic table name generation within PostgreSQL is a problem and can be solved by using explicit table name like this:

@Entity(name="Users") public class User extends Model {

...but solution of the problem can be found here: http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-bugs/2000-08/msg00102.php
