Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1228) Key range error apparently ignores view collation
Date Mon, 08 Aug 2011 00:44:27 GMT


Jason Smith commented on COUCHDB-1228:

Thanks, Paul. I will submit another patch set.

I was not totally confident about the {reduce, _N, _Lang, View} stuff. It comes from code
like this:

Would you mind briefly explaining what that code is doing? The `ReduceView` is that {reduce,
N, Lang, View} tuple, but that is not a record from couch_db.hrl; it is simply built on the

> I have created a view (no reduce function) with "options":{"collation":"raw"} and emit
documents with keys "A", "C" and "b". Running a request on that view with no parameters, I
get as expected all three documents in order "A", "C" and "b" as required by the raw collation
(instead of "A", "b", "C" for the default ICU collation).
> However, when I run a request with start key "B" and end key "a", I expect the "C" document
to be returned alone (as "B" < "C" < "a") but couchDB responds:
> { "error": "query_parse_error", "reason": "No rows can match your key range, reverse
your start_key and end_key or set descending=true" }
> This error would make sense if I had been using the default ICU collation, where "B"
> "a", but with the raw collation the reverse ("B" > "a") is true. It looks as if the
key order warning does not take the view collation into account.
