Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-716:

    Attachment: derby-716-01-basic-aa.diff

Attaching a patch which adds basic support for Derby-style Table Functions. This patch allows
you to declare user-defined Table Functions and to invoke them in simple SELECT statements.
I've included a JUnit test for this functionality. The existing regression tests pass cleanly
for me.

A description of the contents of this patch follows:


(1) Created a new datatype, RowMultiSetImpl, to represent the return type of a Table Function.

M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/iapi/services/io/RegisteredFormatIds.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/iapi/services/io/StoredFormatIds.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/iapi/types/TypeId.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/iapi/types/DataTypeDescriptor.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/iapi/types/DTSClassInfo.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/catalog/TypeDescriptor.java
A      java/engine/org/apache/derby/catalog/types/RowMultiSetImpl.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/catalog/types/TypeDescriptorImpl.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/catalog/types/BaseTypeIdImpl.java


(2) Added new syntax for declaring Derby-style Table Functions.

M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/iapi/sql/dictionary/DataDictionary.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/sql/catalog/DataDictionaryImpl.java
M      java/storeless/org/apache/derby/impl/storeless/EmptyDictionary.java

Factored out the check for builtin VTIs so that the parser can know whether to build nodes
for a constructor-based VTI or a static-method-based VTI.

M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/sql/compile/sqlgrammar.jj
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/iapi/sql/dictionary/AliasDescriptor.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/catalog/types/RoutineAliasInfo.java

Parser support for Table Function DDL.


(3) Supported the invocation of  Table Functions in simple SELECTs.

M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/sql/compile/MethodCallNode.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/sql/compile/VTIDeferModPolicy.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/sql/compile/NewInvocationNode.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/sql/compile/FromVTI.java

Moved some bind() logic from NewInvocationNode into its superclass, MethodCallNode. The previous
scheme allowed the invocation of VTIs which are constructors. The new scheme also allows the
invocation of VTIs which are static methods.

M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/sql/compile/ResultColumnList.java

Factored out some code which builds ResultColumns. The newly factored-out method is used to
bind() the shape of the return value of a Table Function.

M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/sql/compile/StaticMethodCallNode.java

Don't try to cast returned ResultSets.

M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/iapi/sql/execute/ResultSetFactory.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/sql/execute/GenericResultSetFactory.java
M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/sql/execute/VTIResultSet.java

Accounted for the fact that the returned columns of Table Functions are nullable according
to the SQL standard.


(4) Added new error messages.

M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/loc/messages.xml
M      java/shared/org/apache/derby/shared/common/reference/SQLState.java


(5) Added a JUnit test for this functionality.

A      java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/functionTests/tests/lang/TableFunctionTest.java
A      java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/functionTests/tests/lang/StringColumnVTI.java
M      java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/functionTests/tests/lang/_Suite.java
M      java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/functionTests/tests/lang/SysDiagVTIMappingTest.java
A      java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/functionTests/tests/lang/StringArrayVTI.java
M      java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/junit/BaseTestCase.java

> Cloudscape used to expose Virtual Table Interfaces, by which any class which implemented
ResultSet could be included in a query's FROM list. Derby still exposes a number of these
VTIs as diagnostic tools. However, Derby now prevents customers from declaring their own VTIs.
The parser raises an error if a VTI's package isn't one of the Derby diagnostic packages.
> This is a very powerful feature which customers can use to solve many problems. We should
discuss the reasons that it was disabled and come up with a plan for putting this power back
into our customers' hands.
