Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1866) Assert failure in sane mode for queries that used to work in

A B commented on DERBY-1866:

> Does this bug appear in the current 10.1.3 release?

Since 10.1.3 doesn't have support for optimizer overrides, I can't run the repro against it
to see.  I also can't run the original query from DERBY-1777 because the other regressions
(esp. DERBY-1633) haven't been fixed in the 10.1.3 release and thus will cause the query to
fail before ever reaching the condition for this issue.

But even though I can't demonstrate it easily, I'm pretty sure the answer is "Yes".  I tried
to run the repro script with a set of 10.2 jars that was built before any of the DERBY-805-related
changes went in (but after optimizer overrides were added) and the queries pass.  So the queries
used to work in 10.2 and now they don't--and I'd be very (pleasantly) surprised if the optimizer
changes for DERBY-805 weren't somehow responsible.  Given that, the 805 changes were ported
to 10.1 so I imagine the issue exists in the 10.1.3 release, as well (it's just hidden behind
the other regressions that have since been resolved).

> Derby-1777 gives a database and a small program called "ViewerInit" that prepares a bunch
of large queries involving nested subqueries, unions, and join predicates.  The actual bug
described in DERBY-1777 is an NPE, and that's what the patch for DERBY-1777 addresses.
> However, once the NPEs are fixed, some of the queries in that same program now fail with
ASSERT failures when running in SANE mode; this Jira issue is for addressing those assert
> While this does constitute a regression, I don't know yet what the root cause of the
problem is, so I hesitate to make it a 10.2 blocker--hence urgency is "Normal".  I'm still
investigating the queries to try to track down where the problem is, but all I've been able
to deduce so far is that a) the assertion occurs for a scoped predicate and thus the pushing
of join predicates into UNIONs is somehow involved, and b) in INSANE mode the query compiles
without problem and appears (based on some early and very incomplete testing) to execute without
problem.  But more investigation is required to determine if the execution/results are actually
correct, and to understand more about why the assertion is being thrown.
> I'm marking the fixin as for now since I don't enough to make this a blocker
for 10.2.1.  Hopefully more info will be forthcoming...
