Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-4346) LIKE with parameter recomputes greaterEqualString and lessThanString way too often
Date Tue, 11 Aug 2009 10:17:14 GMT
LIKE with parameter recomputes greaterEqualString and lessThanString way too often
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-4346
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4346
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: SQL
    Affects Versions: 10.5.1.1
            Reporter: Knut Anders Hatlen


I profiled a 7-way join (the exact query can be found here: <URL:http://src.opensolaris.org/source/xref/opengrok/trunk/src/org/opensolaris/opengrok/history/JDBCHistoryCache_queries.properties?r=809%3Abdef8b63f333#82>)
and saw that 40% of the time was spent in Like.greaterEqualStringFromParameterWithEsc() and
Like.lessThanStringFromParameterWithEsc().

These methods are used to generate "x >= greaterEqualString" and "x < lessThanString"
clauses that enable a "LIKE ?" clause to make use of indexes. Since the value of the ? parameter
is constant throughout a single execution of the statement, it should only be necessary to
invoke these methods once per LIKE clause per execution. They are clearly called more frequently
for the query in question, and reducing the number of invocations to one per execution would
probably make the query execute almost twice as fast.
