Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3002) Add support for GROUP BY ROLLUP
Date Thu, 28 May 2009 14:54:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3002?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12713996#action_12713996

Bryan Pendleton commented on DERBY-3002:

Hi Knut, thanks again for the notes and observations.

Your point about the handling of empty result sets is intriguing.

Consider the short script shown below. I'm confused about why the
second SELECT statement returns 1 row, but the first and third
SELECT statements return 0 rows.

Do you understand why this behavior exists, and whether it's appropriate?

ij> create table t (a int, b int);
0 rows inserted/updated/deleted
ij> select sum(b) from t group by a;

0 rows selected
ij> select sum(b) from t;

1 row selected
ij> insert into t values (1,1);
1 row inserted/updated/deleted
ij> select sum(b) from t where 1 <> 1 group by a;

0 rows selected
