Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3069) Derby does not resolve functions bound to methods with varargs.
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2007 16:50:50 GMT

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-3069:

Here's a stab at a functional spec for this behavior:

User Experience:

1) Functions and Procedures (with fixed numbers of arguments) can resolve to Java methods
with varargs signatures when Derby runs on Java 5 or higher.

2) Does NOT allow varargs in the SQL declaration of the arguments of Functions and Procedures.

Method Resolution Details:

The method resolution rules for SQL invoked routines are described in the SQL Standard, part
13, section 8.6. We change the resolution rules given in Rule 3, case b, step 4, case 1. More
specifically, we expand JCS to include additional candidate methods. The additional methods
obey the following rules.

Let the number of arguments in JPDL be SQLArgCount. Let Candidate be a method which satisfies
the following:

aa) Candidate is a visible Java method in class JCLSN in Jar JN with method name JMN.

bb) Candidate has CandidateArgCount arguments in its signature. The last argument in that
signature is a vararg argument of type T.

cc) The first CandidateArgCount-1 arguments of JPDL have the types of the first CandidateArgCount-1
arguments of Candidate.

dd) If SQLArgCount == CandidateArgCount-1, then Candidate is added to JCS.

ee) If SQLArgCount >= CandidateArgCount and all of the arguments in JPDL from CandidateArgCount
onward have type T, then Candidate is added to JCS.

> Varargs were added in Java 5. It would be nice if Derby let you invoke a function bound
to a method with a variable length argument list. The Reference Guide states a small number
of restrictions for methods which can be invoked as Derby functions: They must be public,
static, and not have arguments which are long datatypes. I see no reason that Derby shouldn't
be able to resolve and invoke functions which are bound to methods which don't suffer these
limitations but which have variable argument lists.
