Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-81) Datetime datatypes should allow arithmetic operations on them.
Date Wed, 24 Nov 2004 18:47:24 GMT
     [ http://nagoya.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-81?page=history ]

Satheesh Bandaram updated DERBY-81:
-----------------------------------

    Description: 
Datetime datatypes in Derby are date, time and timestamp. Currently Derby doesn't allow any
arithmetic operations on them, limiting their use. It would be great to allow statements like:

   SELECT * FROM log 
   WHERE modified_time > CURRENT_TIMESTAMP - 1 MONTH

Commercial databases like Oracle, DB2 and mySQL also have this feature. SQL standard allows
these operations along with INTERVAL types. Since Derby doesn't have INTERVAL datatypes, I
would like to propose datetime arithmetic to Derby without INTERVALs.

It should be possible to add, subtract datetime datatypes with a constant like '1 MONTH' (called
a duration or INTERVAL in SQL standard). It should also be possible to subtract datetime types
where the semantics are allowed according to SQL standard specification.
