Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-3897) SQLSessionContext not correctly initialized in some non-method call nested contexts

SQLSessionContext not correctly initialized in some non-method call nested contexts

                 Key: DERBY-3897
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3897
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: SQL
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Dag H. Wanvik
             Fix For:

In some contexts, beside calling stored routines containing SQL, Derby
uses nested execution contexts, wehere we have two nested activations,
but no nested connections.

In such cases, currently a new SQLSessionContext is constructed, but
not initialized correctly.  This leads to the session variables
CURRENT_ROLE/CURRENT_SCHEMA not being set correctly in these contexts
(they should inherited from the parent context, cf DERBY-3327).

For method calls, this is being handled by generating a call to
lcc.setupNestedSessionContext (see

In some of these nested contexts, one or both of the session variables
CURRENT_ROLE/CURRENT_SCHEMA can be referenced, in others
not. Obviously, if they can, this will lead to errors. The following
contexts will have this problem:

  In the AlterTableConstantAction, a nested UPDATE statement is used
  to give existing rows the new column its default value. This
  execution context is nested, cf. AlterTableConstantAction#executeUpdate

- TRIGGER body execution may reference CURRENT_ROLE/CURRENT_SCHEMA.
  The body executes in a nested context,
  cf. GenericTriggerExecutor#executeSPS.

In other cases, the session variables can not be referenced, so this
not a problem: 

- CHECK constraint execution
- EmbedResultSet.insertRow, .deleteRow, .updateRow

The session context should not be changed (pushed) for these nested
executions, since there is no nested connection (SQL 2003, 4.37.1: "An
SQL-session is associated with an SQL-connection.")
