Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3603) 'IN' clause ignores valid results, incorrect qualifier handling suspected
Date Wed, 09 Apr 2008 13:58:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3603?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12587193#action_12587193
] 

Thomas Nielsen commented on DERBY-3603:
---------------------------------------

Ran the queries through the debugger to see if there were any obvious errors.

The only obvious difference I see is that the 2-row result query (S2), enters the procedure
changed by DERBY-3603 a total of 4 times during optimization, while the 3-row result query
(S3) only enters a single time. The callstacks are identical for the S2 and S3 queries in
all 5 invocations. This could mean part of the IN list is optimized away in S2. If one optimizer
path in S2 does not take all rows into consideration it will probably be a lot cheaper, and
will be used, resulting in an incomplete result.

> Derbys' 'IN' clause is returning different results depending on which side of a joined
table
> I am doing my 'IN' comparison against. This only occurs when the number of items within
the 'IN' clause is greater then 1.
> This behaviour was also confirmed by Bryan Pendleton in this thread:

> Using the test database attatched the following 2 queries produce the issue:
> ij>  select count(*) FROM spike.accounts account, spike.admin_units admin_unit,
>     spike.bookings booking
>     WHERE booking.child_id = 2 AND
>     admin_unit.admin_unit_id IN (1,21) AND
>     booking.booking_date_time_out >= 20080331000000 AND
>     booking.booking_date_time_in <= 20080406235900 AND
>     account.account_id = booking.account_id AND
>     admin_unit.admin_unit_id = account.admin_unit_id;
> 1          
> -----------
> 2          
> 1 row selected
> ij> select count(*) FROM spike.accounts account, spike.admin_units admin_unit,
>     spike.bookings booking
>     WHERE booking.child_id = 2 AND
>     account.admin_unit_id IN (1,21) AND
>     booking.booking_date_time_out >= 20080331000000 AND
>     booking.booking_date_time_in <= 20080406235900 AND
>     account.account_id = booking.account_id AND
>     admin_unit.admin_unit_id = account.admin_unit_id;
> 1          
> -----------
> 3          
> 1 row selected
> ij> 
> The only difference between the 2 statements is which side of a join the 'IN' clause
is matched against.
> Bryan performed some initial testing and stated the following:
> --------------------- SNIP ------------------------
> Interestingly, although the actual results do NOT contain any values
> for admin_unit_id = 21, if I change the query to:
>     admin_unit.admin_unit_id IN (1)
> or
>     account.admin_unit_id IN (1)
> then the problem disappears -- I get 3 rows for both queries.
> I also ran query plans for both the queries (in the IN (1,21) case)
> and have pasted the (simplified) query plans at the end of this message.
> I notice that in the case where the query gives 2 rows, which is
> when we specify admin_unit.admin_unit_id in (1,21), the admin_unit_id
> index scan output in the query plan contains:
>            qualifiers:
> Column[0][0] Id: 0
> Operator: =
> Ordered nulls: false
> Unknown return value: false
> Negate comparison result: false
> However, in the case where the query gives 3 rows, which is
> when we specify account.admin_unit_id in (1,21), the admin_unit_id
> index scan output in the query plan contains:
>            qualifiers:
> None
> I think it is the presence/absence of this qualifier on the query
> scan which is causing the different results in the query, as in
> the first case we see:
>            Number of rows qualified=2
>            Number of rows visited=3
> but in the second case we see:
>            Number of rows qualified=3
>            Number of rows visited=3
> I definitely don't have any explanation for why you are getting
> this odd behavior; it certainly seems like a bug to me.
