Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3137) SQL roles: add catalog support
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2008 02:17:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3137?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12564270#action_12564270
] 

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-3137:
--------------------------------------

Re: identifiers vs CNF:  Indeed confusing. I think I was under the impression the <values
specification> would yield a CNF value, which is
why I added the extra syntax for using identifers also, like SET SCHEMA does. This is why
I was wary of the TRIM I think; a CNF value would not have any protective text quotes around
it.

One interpretation of 5.2 SR 24 could be that CNF values is only ever available as a string
value in queries against the system tables? It would then behoove the app to take into account
when comparing, but perhaps it would simplify things on the whole?

Or maybe the standard intends for a comparison of CURRENT_ROLE against information schemas
to be an identifer comparison, not a string comparison.. in which case the standard is inconsistent
I think.

> As a next step after adding support for the roles syntax, I intend to

> cf. SYS.SYSROLES described in the specification (attached to
> DERBY-2207). Also the patch should tie this support up to the parser
> support, so the role statements can be executed. Any privileges
> granted to roles would still have no effect at run-time.
