Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-3732) SQL Length function materializes lob into memory
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2008 23:19:45 GMT
SQL Length function materializes lob into memory

                 Key: DERBY-3732
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3732
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: SQL
    Affects Versions:,,
            Reporter: Kathey Marsden
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: LengthLargeLob.zip

Currently the SQL length function materializes the entire lob into memory. In SQLBinary.getLength()
we have 
public final int	getLength() throws StandardException
		if (stream != null) {

			if (streamValueLength != -1)
				return streamValueLength;

		return (getBytes() == null) ? 0 : getBytes().length;
Which actually is doubly bad because we call getBytes twice and materialize it twice.
It would be good to read the length from the stream if available and otherwise stream the
value to get the length, rather than materializing it into memory.

To reproduce, run the attached repro.
java -Xmx16M  LengthLargeLob

It gives an out of memory exception
