PostgreSQL case sensitivity


Dear support, 


We are developing a plugin and using Active Objects to access database. When usiung MySQL everything works as expected, however when we tested with postgreSQL we identified an issue with names of the columns and case sensitivity. 

We always use small case and for some reason column names were created with capitals.

As you see in the example above project_id is reffered as both - small and caps which breaks our code. 


Why column names were created with capitals if we have defined them with small and what can we do here if we want to continue using small chars for the names of the columns.
