Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-690) Add scrollable, updatable, insensitive result sets
Date Tue, 07 Mar 2006 12:39:39 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-690?page=comments#action_12369218 ] 

Øystein Grøvlen commented on DERBY-690:
---------------------------------------

Some comments/questions to the write-up:

* Updatability, 2nd paragraph:  I think you should explain why
  navigations to new rows and previously fetched rows needs to be
  handled differently.

* Isolation level read-uncommitted/read-committed, 2nd paragraph:
  - 1st sentence: "open" instead of "opened"?
  - "The result set may overwrite data in an updateRow() ... "  I do
    not understand what you try to say here.  Do you mean that
    updateRow may overwrite data that has been changed after the row
    was read by the result set?  (In other words, you are talking
    about data in the database, not data in an updateRow.)
  - Last sentence: I would reformulate to say that only changed
    columns are written to the database on updateRow().
  - Is there really anything particular about result sets in this
    context?   Would not the same discussion be relevant for any
    multi-statement transaction?

> JDBC result sets are created with three properties: type, concurrency
> and holdability. The type can be one of TYPE_FORWARD_ONLY,
> TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE and TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE. The concurrency can
> be one of CONCUR_READ_ONLY and CONCUR_UPDATABLE. The holdability can
> be one of HOLD_CURSORS_OVER_COMMIT and CLOSE_CURSORS_AT_COMMIT.
> JDBC allows the full cross product of these. SQL 2003 prohibits the
> combination {TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE, CONCUR_UPDATABLE}, but this
> combination is supported by some vendors, notably Oracle.
> Currently, Derby supports JDBC result sets in a limited
> way. Holdability is supported. Furthermore, the following is
> supported: 
> 	   - forward-only, read-only 
> 	   - forward-only, updatable (update, delete, but not insert)
> 	     Also, in the network driver, support for some data types
> 	     conversions is missing.
> 	   - scroll insensitive, read-only
> We (Fernanda and Andreas will cooperate with me on this) propose a
> plan to add support for the combination:
> 	   - scroll insensitive, updatable
> for both the embedded driver and the network client driver. 
> As a part of this we would also like to add the missing insert
> operation to the {forward-only, updatable} result sets (JIRA-100), and
> remove the requirement for an explicit "FOR UPDATE" clause in the SQL
> query to achieve updatability if CONCUR_UPDATABLE is specified
> (JIRA-231).
> The full proposal text is uploaded as an attachment, including a proposed
> functional specification.
> This JIRA will  be used to track sub-issues for this effort. The sub-issues will be linked
back to this issue.
