Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2487) Enhance Derby with EXPLAIN Functionality
Date Sun, 22 Feb 2009 18:49:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2487?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12675691#action_12675691

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-2487:

Hi Bryan,

I haven't looked at the patch yet, but I've had a brief look at the documentation that you
posted on DERBY-4065 (great work, by the way!), and I noticed that the STMT_TEXT column in
SYSXPLAIN_STATEMENTS was of type LONG VARCHAR (length 32700). Given that the maximum length
of VARCHAR is just 28 characters shorter than LONG VARCHAR, do you think it would be a good
idea to change the data type of that column to VARCHAR? That would allow comparisons on that
column without a cast. Otherwise, I think a statement like "select * from sys.sysxplain_statements
where stmt_text='select * from t'" would result in ERROR 42818: Comparisons between 'LONG
VARCHAR (UCS_BASIC)' and 'CHAR (UCS_BASIC)' are not supported.
