Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2998) Add support for ROW_NUMBER() window function
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2007 09:20:43 GMT

Thomas Nielsen commented on DERBY-2998:

You have a valid point Knut.

Further investigation shows that the inner row_number() is executed once for every outer execution
- which is the way one would like to do this. The following output from a test table with
3 rows illustrate this. Never mind the bug not distinguishing between the two row_number()s
for now, but it clearly shows the order in which this is executed:

ij> select row_number(),r,a,b from (select row_number() as r, t.* from t) as tr where r
row_number()        |R                   |A          |B          
2                   |1                   |1          |9          
4                   |3                   |2          |8          

2 rows selected

If the inner resultset was flagged as ordered on R the outer might use that info to determine
when to stop.
