Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-984) BOOLEAN Type allows illegal casts and comparisons according to SQL Spec
Date Tue, 11 Jul 2006 20:10:31 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-984?page=all ]

Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-984:
--------------------------------

    Priority: Major  (was: Blocker)

Downgrading this issue to Major because it is not blocking the release, as indicated by its
reassignment to 10.3. I suspect that we can't fix this in 10.3 either. It appears to be a
significant change to Derby behavior which will affect existing applications. The community
is likely to decide that the fix must be deferred to a major release.

>   Components: SQL

>
> The BOOLEAN type, implemented with DERBY-499,  will allow illegal casts and comparisons.
 Issues surrounding this have also been discussed in DERBY-887.
> The casts and comparisons for BOOLEAN need to be brought into line with the standard
or the BOOLEAN work backed out, before 10.2.  The developer working on this issue has indicated
that he does not plan to complete the BOOLEAN work for 10.2
> There is other outstanding work associated with BOOLEAN  and I don't know whether that
is a showstopper or not, but at least the casts and comparisons are.  See discussion in DERBY-499.
