Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4407) StringIndexOutOfBoundsException in ij when result has no columns
Date Tue, 13 Oct 2009 13:00:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4407?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12765063#action_12765063

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-4407:

Hi Knut,

I think that a row returned by a query must have at least column. Here's how I thread my way
to this conclusion by reading part 2 of the SQL Standard:

1) The result set returned by a query expression is a kind of table called a "derived table"
according to 4.14.2 "Types of tables".

2) A row in a table must have at least one column according to the previous section, 4.14.1
"Introduction to tables"

>            Reporter: Knut Anders Hatlen
>            Priority: Minor
> A query that returns no columns should perhaps raise an SQLException of some kind, I
don't know, but currently it doesn't, and ij fails with a StringIndexOutOfBoundsException
when it tries to display the result.
> After DERBY-4370 it is possible to construct queries that return no columns by having
a select list like T1.* in a join where the USING clause contains all of T1's columns. To
> ij> create table t(x int);
> 0 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> ij> insert into t values (1),(2),(3);
> 3 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> ij> select t1.* from t t1 join t t2 using (x);
