Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2261) Questionable use of word "statement" in VALUES expression of Derby Reference Manual should be changed to "clause"
Date Sun, 18 Mar 2007 08:21:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2261?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12481918
] 

Tomohito Nakayama commented on DERBY-2261:
------------------------------------------

I think the topic for VALUES expression should explicitly state that VALUES expression can
construct VALUES statement.
In my experience, VALUES statement has not been used in many cases, 
then it should be described in manual of Derby explicitly to inform user.
// I think support for VALUES statement is proof for flexibility of SQL grammer in Derby.

I think reference for FROM clause in the topic is not appropriate now.
Explicit reference for select statement would be needed for reference for FROM clause, because
VALUES statement is not SELECT statement, I think.
