Hi Shreyas,

I am glad you are back on the trail with this issue and have some
ideas.    I really can't answer your specific question at all because I
don't know *what* SQL we are talking about here,  but if after some more
research, you are still  stuck,  feel free to post a question.  Don't
forget to include the five key ingredients to getting answers from busy
people on the list.

1) The small bit of sql or java code in question.
2) A description of the old and new behaviour and what you think the
right behavior should be.
3) The stack trace if there is one.
4) What you have learned so far from your own evaluation of 1-3 above.
5) A specific question that is not going to take a lot of research for
someone to answer that you think might send you back along your way if

For this post I think you would have done a pretty good job with 4 and 5
if  1, 2, and 3 were here too.
 I think you forgot 1 and 2. below are some tips for step 3 to get a
stack trace.

          a)  Create a small repro.sql script
                Take just enough sql to get the specific sql from step 1
                 (Usually some ddl some inserts and then the trouble maker)
          b)    start ij with  -Dij.exceptionTrace=true and execute the sql.

Here is an example.    Looks like I need help with my select statement #:)
$ java -Dij.exceptionTrace=true org.apache.derby.tools.ij
ij version 10.1
ij> run 'repro.sql';
ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:wombat;create=true';
ij> create table mytab(i int);
0 rows inserted/updated/deleted
ij> insert into mytab values(1);
1 row inserted/updated/deleted
ij> selectoops from mytab;
ERROR 42X01: Syntax error: Encountered "selectoops" at line 1, column 1.
ERROR 42X01: Syntax error: Encountered "selectoops" at line 1, column 1.

As for reviewing your code so far, I am sorry, but I don't think I have
time to do that right now. Just too busy,  but perhaps someone else from
the community can.  I  have noticed others from your company on the
list.  I  know that a lot of times when I need a review,  I ping someone
that I work with and have pretty good results that way.
