Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3997) ORDER BY causes column to be returned
Date Mon, 29 Dec 2008 20:04:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3997?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12659630#action_12659630

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-3997:

I think I've found the cause of the problem. This code in SelectNode.preprocess() will be
executed when all the columns in the ORDER BY clause are known to have constant values because
of the WHERE clause:

				** It's possible for the order by list to shrink to nothing
				** as a result of removing constant columns.  If this happens,
				** get rid of the list entirely.
				if (orderByList.size() == 0)
					orderByList = null;

Later, in SelectNode.genProjectRestrict() the extra ORDER BY columns are supposed to be removed
from the result, but this is only done if orderByList != null, as it assumes that (orderByList
== null) means that there are no columns to remove. Calling resultColumns.removeOrderByColumns()
when we set orderByList to null appears to fix the problem, but I haven't run the regression
tests yet.

>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: SQL
>    Affects Versions:
>         Environment: Mac OS 10.4, JDK 1,6
>            Reporter: geoff hendrey
> The ORDER BY is causing the ordered column to be retrieved even though it is not part
of the SELECT clause. Here is a script to create a table, insert a row, and perform the select:
> (
>    numstars BIGINT,
>    body VARCHAR(32672),
>    title VARCHAR(32672),
>    authoremail VARCHAR(32672)
> );
> INSERT INTO "REVIEWS"."GEOFF__REVIEWS__REVIEW" (PK,numstars,body,title,authoremail) VALUES
(0 /*not nullable*/,0,'s','s','s');
> SELECT  "review"."numstars"
>     "GEOFF__REVIEWS__REVIEW" AS "review"
>         "review"."PK" = 1
>     "review".PK
