Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2335) Compare character datatypes with different collation ordering.

Mamta A. Satoor commented on DERBY-2335:
----------------------------------------

Army, thanks for spending some time testing with XML. I spent couple hrs and unfortunately
can't pinpoint right away what is causing this. I tried using -Dderby.debug.true=DumpClassFile
but looks like if there is an error during the code generation and we don't generate any class
for the problem query. It will be nice if there was an even partial dump of what ever code
has been generated for the query even if it runs into problem because that would help with
debugging. Oh well..

I will put this on my todo list but in the meantime, if you/anyone find any more problems,
do let me know.

> The parent task DERBY-1478 will enable users to have a different collation order for
user-defined character datatypes compared to UNICODE based collation, UCS_BASIC, used by system
tables. This sub-task is added to handle the case where a comparison is made between character
datatypes with different collation order. 
> For instance 
> Let's say, a database is created to use a territory based collation for character types.
And say there is a userSchema schema in that database which has a table tableInfo with column
tablename defined as VARCHAR. This tableInfo.tablename will have territory based collation
assoicated with it. And say this column is then compared with a VARCHAR column in SYS schema,
then how will the comparison happen, since the 2 columns being compared have different collation
associated with them? 
> select * from sys.systables and userSchema.tableInfo where systables.tablename = tableInfo,tablename

> Thanks to Rick for taking the time out on this issue. He had following suggestion
> </Rick comment start>
> "As I read part 2 of the SQL Standard, it looks like you need a CAST in order to compare
2 strings which have different collations bound to them. Both string operands must have the
same collation--that is my reading of Syntax rule 3b in section 9.13. Sections 6.12 and 6.1
explain how to cast the operands so that you can compare them. I think you need to write an
expression like this: 
>    WHERE userStringCol = CAST ( systemStringCol AS VARCHAR COLLATE userStringColumnsCollation
) 
> Here's an example I googled up: http://docs.openlinksw.com/virtuoso/sqlrefDATATYPES.html.
Hope this helps. 
> </Rick comment end>
> When this task is taken up, it would be good to explore Rick's suggestion.
