Subject SQL state 42, access permissions, SQL standard and JDBC 4.0
Date Thu, 07 Sep 2006 16:34:12 GMT
The SQL standard says that SQL State '42' is for "syntax error or access
rule violation" (section 23.1).

JDBC 4.0 states in section 6.5.1 that "TABLE 6-1 specifies which
NonTransientSQLException subclass must be thrown
for a a given SQLState class value:" and Table 6.1 has these two lines
of interest:

SQL State 42 ->> SQLSyntaxErrorException.
SQL State 'N/A' ->> SQLInvalidAuthorizationException


Derby currently uses SQL State '28' for access rule violations, the SQL
standard says that's for 'invalid authorization specification' and only
used in statements not supported by Derby.


So:

Q1) Should Derby be using '42' for access rule violations?

Q2) If Derby uses '42' for access rule violations should it throw a
SQLSyntaxErrorException, a NonTransientSQLException, a SQLException or
SQLInvalidAuthorizationException?

Dan.
