Date Mon, 23 Jan 2006 19:58:11 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-565?page=all ]

Mike Matrigali updated DERBY-565:

    Component: SQL

> Misleading parser diagnostics
> -----------------------------
>          Key: DERBY-565
>          URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-565
>      Project: Derby
>         Type: Bug
>   Components: SQL
>     Reporter: Rick Hillegas
>     Priority: Minor

> Bryan Pendleton reports:
> When I mistype 'join' as 'joing', the error message that I
> get actually complains about the word 'left'. It ought to,
> in my opinion, complain about the word 'joing', since that
> is truly the word with the syntax error in it.
> ij> select * from t1 left outer joing t2 on t1.c2=t2.c1;
> ERROR 42X01: Syntax error: Encountered "left" at line 1, column 18.
> I don't know if this is a PITA to fix or not, but I thought
> I'd send it along anyway since it was so easy to reproduce.

> This appears to be a problem with hand-coded lookahead logic. Although fixing this particular
lookahead issue might be trivial, this is part of a larger problem since the parser is liberally
peppered with similar hand-coded lookahead logic. Coming up with a general solution might
involve some creativity.
