Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2909) TernaryOperatorNode does not check the collation type of it's operands when implementing TRIM, LOCATE functions.
Date Mon, 09 Jul 2007 17:11:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2909?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12511176
] 

Mamta A. Satoor commented on DERBY-2909:
----------------------------------------

So, what we are saying here is for the TRIM example under considereation, Derby currently
uses UCS_BASIC collation because that collation is supported by both the character sets. Territory
based collation is supported by both the character sets too but there is no way to specify
the use of that collation at this point. In future, when the COLLATION keyword would be supported,
one can specify territory based collation for SYSTEM IDENTIFIER character set and at that
time, territory based collation will get used for the TRIM example.

I will go ahead and close this issue at the end of the day, if there are no further comments
by anyone.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2909
>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: SQL
>    Affects Versions: 10.3.1.1, 10.4.0.0
>            Reporter: Mamta A. Satoor
>
> Queries like following should fail in a territory based database if the current schema
is a user schema
> SELECT TABLENAME FROM SYS.SYSTABLES WHERE LOCATE('LOOKFORME', TABLENAME) != 0;
> SELECT TABLENAME FROM SYS.SYSTABLES WHERE TRIM('E' from TABLENAME) = TABLENAME;
> This is because the collation type of the first operand for both LOCATE and TRIM is territory
based but the second parameter has collation of UCS_BASIC and hence such a comparison should
not be allowed. In order to fix this, we need code like following in TernaryOperatorNode
> //Make sure that the string operands are comparable ie their collation
> //should be considered in deciding whether the string operands can be
> //compared with each other
> boolean cmp = leftOperand.getTypeServices().comparable(receiver.getTypeServices(),
> 				true,
> 				getClassFactory());
> if (!cmp) {
> 	throw StandardException.newException(SQLState.LANG_NOT_COMPARABLE, 
> 				receiverType.getSQLTypeName(),
> 				leftCTI.getSQLTypeName()
> 				);
>  }
