Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1659) Document describe and show tables functionality
Date Thu, 14 Sep 2006 14:51:23 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1659?page=comments#action_12434702 ] 
            
Andreas Korneliussen commented on DERBY-1659:
---------------------------------------------

I have just a minor comment on the doc: I have been testing this feature, and found that descrbie
also can be used for describing views. 

ij> show views;
TABLE_SCHEM         |TABLE_NAME                    |REMARKS             
------------------------------------------------------------------------
MYPP                |V1                            |                    

1 row selected
ij> describe mypp.v1;
COLUMN_NAME         |TYPE_NAME|DEC&|NUM&|COLUM&|COLUMN_DEF|CHAR_OCTE&|IS_NULL&
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
C                   |INTEGER  |0   |10  |10    |NULL      |NULL      |NO      

1 row selected

Therefore, I propose that the doc is modified to say that it can describe views, and the syntax
of the describe command could i.e be:
describe <view_name>|<table_name>
