Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-5910) Most CQL3 functions should handle null gracefully
Date Wed, 21 Aug 2013 13:21:52 GMT
Sylvain Lebresne created CASSANDRA-5910:

             Summary: Most CQL3 functions should handle null gracefully
                 Key: CASSANDRA-5910
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Sylvain Lebresne
            Assignee: Sylvain Lebresne
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 1.2.9

Currently, we don't allow null parameters for functions. So
UPDATE test SET d=dateOf(null) WHERE k=0
is basically an invalid query. Unfortunately, there's at least one case where we don't validate
correctly, namely if we do:
SELECT k, dateOf(t) FROM test
In that case, if for any of the row {{t}} is null, we end up with a server side NPE. But more
importantly, throwing an InvalidException in that case would be pretty inconvenient and actually
somewhat wrong since the query is not invalid in itself. So, at least in that latter case,
we want {{dateOf(t) == null}} when {{t == null}}. And if we do that, I suggest making it always
the case (i.e. make the first query valid but assigning {{null}} to {{d}}).
