Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2370) EXISTS may return the wrong value for sub-queries involving set operations
Date Wed, 25 Apr 2007 11:15:15 GMT

Dyre Tjeldvoll commented on DERBY-2370:

I have looked at the writeup and and also looked at the
patch. While I am certainly no expert in this area I think the
explanation and solution in the writeup looks very sound. The
patch seem to implement what is suggested, it is clear, well
documented and tested. +1 from me.

> It seems like EXISTS on a SELECT returning zero rows returns false (as
> expected), but EXISTS on INTERSECT of two disjunct sets returns true,
> e.g EXISTS (values 1 intersect values 2).
