Access Greenhopper Taskboard's column limits

I need to access Greenhopper Taskboard's column limits of particular columns for a plugin I am developing.

I looked into the database and I have found where Greenhopper stores the limits, the column-steps mapping, project-column mappings but I cannot find how the column limits are associated with the column names.

Can any one please tell me how to get this data??

I solved my problem in the following way, if there is a better way please let me know.

private static String columnValuesTableName = "OSPropertyDecimal";
   private static String columnNamesTableName = "OSPropertyEntry";
   private static String columnMappingTableName = "OSPropertyText";
   private static String COLUMN_MAX= "CAPACITY";
   private static String id ="id";
   private static String entityId = "entityId";
   private static String propertyKey = "propertyKey";
   private static String entityName = "entityName";
   private static String value = "value";
   private static String greenHopper = "GreenHopper";
   private static String configuration = "CONFIGURATION";
   private static String prioritisedColumnName="TaskBoard_type_0";
   private static String scopedColumnName="TaskBoard_type_1";
   //table names
   public static String PRIORITISED = "Prioritised";
   public static String SCOPED = "Scoped";
   private static int getConstraintFromDB(long projectId, String tableColumnName, String constraintType){
      Long tableId = null;
      Double limitdb = null;
      //getting the project <-> column mappings
      List<GenericValue> columnNameList = delegator.findByAnd(columnNamesTableName,,projectId));
      //from all the mappings we need to get the required
      //checking column <->  column constraints' id mappings
      for(GenericValue columnName: columnNameList){
         if(columnName.containsKey(propertyKey) && columnName.containsKey(entityName)){

            //checking for the correct constraint as there is a max and min for each column
            if(columnName.get(propertyKey).toString().compareTo(tableColumnName)==0 &&

               //reading the constraints' table id
               tableId = Double.valueOf(columnName.get(id).toString()).longValue();

               //safety check
                  //making a db query for column limit
                  List<GenericValue> dataList = delegator.findByAnd(columnValuesTableName,,tableId));
                     limitdb = dataList.get(0).getDouble(value);

               //we got what we needed so no need to check

      //safety check
      if(tableId == null || limitdb==null){
         return defaultLimit;

      return limitdb.intValue();
