Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1866) Assert failure in sane mode for queries that used to work in
Date Thu, 21 Sep 2006 20:44:23 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1866?page=comments#action_12436637 ] 
A B commented on DERBY-1866:

> As I understand it, this bug exists in the 10.1.3 release. It seems that, as far as this
bug is

Two things:

  1. Are we going to mention the known issues (esp. regressions) that exist with the 10.2
release (aside from intentional behavioral changes) somewhere in the release notes?  I looked
at the html file attached to DERBY-1860 and didn't see any (the "issues" section just holds
release notes for intentional behavior changes and/or fixes).  Are we just leaving it up to
the users to navigate Jira to find outstanding issues like DERBY-1866?

  2. Just as a note, this reasoning for not holding up the release also applies to DERBY-1777,
DERBY-1633, and DERBY-1681, since all of those fail with 10.1.3 release, as well.  (Oh, and
*DERBY-1854*, for that matter!)  Am I to understand that if any of those was still unresolved,
we'd go ahead with the release nonetheless?  I'm not disagreeing with the decision, just curious
if the "it's no worse than <previous release>" rule is specific to this particular Jira
or if it applies on a more general scale?

Thanks for following through with this discussion and making a final decision!

> 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...
