Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2336) Enable collation based ordering for CHAR data type.
Date Sat, 03 Mar 2007 06:22:51 GMT

Mamta A. Satoor commented on DERBY-2336:

Dan, actually thinking more about it, I think it is not enough to make the simple change of
adding getLocaleFinder() method to ContextManager, because it means that we are still relying
on Database Context to set the LocaleFinder information on the ContextManager. At recovery
time(if I understand the restart recovery logic correctly), there will be no DatabaseContext
and hence there will be no way to put the correct LocaleFinder info into ContextManager through
the DatabaseContext. But store context is available at recovery time and hence we can have
the store context do the LocaleFinder setting in the ContextManager.

If we do go with store context approach, I recognize that there does exist a problem for storeless
engine case that you mentioned because there is no store context in such a case and hence
LocaleFinder info will never get set into ContextManager. 

So, in order to solve the 2 problems ie 1)storeless engine and 2)the recovery time case, maybe
we can duplicate the code for setting the LocaleFinder in both DatabaseContext and Store context
so we are covered in both cases. Code duplicatiion is generally not a good idea but this can
be an intermediate solution for now. Maybe it can be tackled as a separate Jira issue.

> I am breaking down the Parent task DERBY-1478 (Add built in language based ordering and
like processing to Derby) into multiple sub tasks. One of them is to concentrate on enabling
the collation based ordering on (hopefully the simplest of all the character data types) CHAR
data type. This task in itself might need subtasks if it is later found that it can be subdivided
into multiple smaller steps.
