Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-4040) SQLChar.getLength returns wrong length for some data values

Kristian Waagan updated DERBY-4040:

    Attachment: derby-4040-1a-SQLChar_length_and_test.stat

 'derby-4040-1a-SQLChar_length_and_test.diff' fixes the bug by always decoding the stream
is the data value is stored as a stream, and it also adds a few more tests (adjusted existing
The bug was that the byte length was used as a character length. Since these two lengths are
the same for ASCII data values, it wasn't detected earlier. The limited range of the length
information in the header helped conceal the bug too.

Ran regression tests without failures. I'll look at backporting the fix when it has made it
into trunk.
Patch ready for review.

> SQLChar.getLength() returns the wrong length of the data value in some cases.
> For the bug to be triggered, the value must contain characters that are represented by
two or three bytes, and Derby must store the value as a stream.
> In my ad-hoc testing, I found that a value of length 10886 with CJK characters doesn't
trigger the bug, but 10887 does trigger the bug. Further, for a range of lengths the bug can
also been observed for CLOB columns (when doing 'select length(clobcolumn)').
