Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-468) Unreserve COUNT keyword, if possible.
Date Fri, 22 Jul 2005 21:10:49 GMT
Unreserve COUNT keyword, if possible.

         Key: DERBY-468
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-468
     Project: Derby
        Type: Improvement
  Components: SQL  
 Environment: All Platforms
    Reporter: Satheesh Bandaram
    Priority: Minor

Derby currently treats COUNT as a reserved word. This prevents having COUNT as a table name
or a column name as shown below. It would be good to move COUNT from reserved word to a non-reserved
word list. Having COUNT as a reserved word also causes problems while porting applications
to Derby.

ij> create table count(i int);
ERROR 42X01: Syntax error: Encountered "count" at line 1, column 14.
ij> create table ts(count int);
ERROR 42X01: Syntax error: Encountered "count" at line 1, column 17.

Note that SQL standard says COUNT is a reserved word, but Derby treats several of these reserved
words as non-reserved words already. (CLOB for example)
