Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-4430) Make ij's SHOW and DESCRIBE commands more db agnostic
Date Sat, 14 Nov 2009 12:18:39 GMT

Sylvain Leroux updated DERBY-4430:

    Attachment: DERBY-4430.ij.out

Thanks for all these explanations.

Here is a second version of the patch. Now, I let the identifier() method untouched. But I
have introduced an other method caIdentifier() (for case-aware identifier). Only the latter
uses database meta data to check for the case policy of the DB.

I've changed the rules for DESCRIBE and SHOW to use that new method instead of the standard

Concerning the tests, it works against Postgre8.3. I join the corresponding SQL and IJ output.
I ran ToolScripts (with junit) without any error.
I ran derbyall (harness-style) with only an error with "bootLock" (?). Here is the relevant
part of the report:
********* Diff file storeall/storemore/bootLock.diff

> ij's SHOW and DESCRIBE commands use DatabaseMetaData in order to be portable to other
databases than Derby, and in many cases they work fine with other databases. However, the
variants of the commands that take a table name or a schema name assume that unquoted identifiers
are converted to and stored in upper case internally. This is not true for all databases,
and since these commands don't accept quoted identifiers, there's currently no way to access
tables/schemas that are not all upper case.
> One possible fix is to make the identifier() method in ij.jj use the DatabaseMetaData
methods storesLowerCaseIdentifiers(), storesMixedCaseIdentifiers() and storesUpperCaseIdentifiers()
to decide whether it should convert the identifier to lower case, keep it unchanged, or convert
it to upper case. Currently, that method always converts the identifiers to upper case.
