Unnecessary if statement can be removed from BaseActivation.getColumnFromNow

                 Key: DERBY-3097
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3097
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: SQL
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Bryan Pendleton
            Assignee: Bryan Pendleton
            Priority: Minor

In BaseActivation.java there is the following code:

protected final DataValueDescriptor getColumnFromRow(int rsNumber, int colId)
throws StandardException {

        if( row[rsNumber] == null)
            /* This actually happens. NoPutResultSetImpl.clearOrderableCache attempts to prefetch
invariant values
             * into a cache. This fails in some deeply nested joins. See Beetle 4736 and 4880.
            return null;
return row[rsNumber].getColumn(colId);

During the investigation of DERBY-3033, I came to the conclusion that this "if" statement
is no longer necessary, and in fact is counter-productive, for it makes diagnosing other problems
harder by delaying the point at which data structure problems are exposed as errors in the

This JIRA issue requests that this code be evaluated, to determine whether or not it truly
is necessary, and, if it is not necessary, suggests that it should be removed, to result in
simpler, clearer code.
