Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3137) SQL roles: add catalog support
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2008 02:01:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3137?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12563798#action_12563798

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-3137:

So this would mean one could not set a role to NONE using a prepared
statement with a ? marker, one would need a separate prepared
statement for the NONE case. I don't see why the standard needs to be
so strict here.. But I can tighten this up, sure. I agree with your
general point thats its better to be tight now and then loosen up rather than
vice versa.

Right, I did consider this, but was I stumped by the case of delimited
identifiers: If such identifiers could legally contain leading or
trailing blanks, one could not use them in a <value specification> in
set role statement?  I chose to follow the example of the SET SCHEMA
case, which is similary not compliant in this matter, AFAICT. Should
that be tightened up as well?
