Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4376) Simple select runs forever
Date Tue, 15 Sep 2009 14:02:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4376?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12755499#action_12755499

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-4376:

The next probe value in an IN list (the query in the repro is rewritten to and IN query internally)
is fetched by MPTSRS.getNextProbeValue() which is called called by MPTSRS.reopenScanController().
In MPTSRS's parent class (TableScanResultSet) we find this in reopenCore():

		// Check whether there are any comparisons with unordered nulls
		// on either the start or stop position.  If there are, we can
		// (and must) skip the scan, because no rows can qualify
		if (skipScan(startPosition, stopPosition))
			scanControllerOpened = false;
			if (scanController == null)

So if startPosition/stopPosition contains a NULL value, reopenScanController() is not called.
This means that a new probe value is not fetched, and at the next iteration we'll still be
at the same position in the IN list, so we'll just continue trying to reopen the scan with
start/stop==NULL again and again.

> On Derby and later, I see that evaluating the statements below in ij apparently
makes Derby go into an infinite loop. The select statement ran for two hours until I aborted
it. I do not see this problem on Derby or earlier.
> ij> create table t(x int primary key);
> 0 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> ij> prepare ps as 'select * from t where x=? or x=?';
> ij> execute ps using 'values (cast(null as int), 0)';
