Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3341) TABLE FUNCTION returning CHAR values does not return a correct value if the Java ResultSet class returns a value less than the length of the defined CHAR.
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2008 19:40:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3341?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12574701#action_12574701
] 

Daniel John Debrunner commented on DERBY-3341:
----------------------------------------------

The issue is not limited to String values that are too long, it's a generic issue for any
variable length types.

A ResultSet returning the String "A" for a CHAR(5) is also incorrect, similar for DECIMAL
values with smaller scale than defined.

Currently Java functions do silently truncate VARCHAR and CHAR values that are too long, not
sure that's correct but I can't yet find any clear indication in the SQL spec (part 13) of
what is meant to happen.

> Defining a column in the returned type as CHAR(10) requires that the returned value be
of length 10 characters.
> Defining a table function with a return type of:
>    returns TABLE  column0 char( 10 ), column1 char( 10 ))
> seems to just return whatever the Java ResultSet implementation handed it.
> My guess this is true for all variable length types, no casting of the value occurs when
it is returned to the SQL domain.
> Java single value functions and procedure out parameters do perform any required casting
to ensure the value is of the declared type.
