Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4406) Wrong order when using ORDER BY on non-deterministic function
Date Tue, 30 Mar 2010 23:58:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4406?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12851663#action_12851663

C.S. Nirmal J. Fernando commented on DERBY-4406:
------------------------------------------------

Hi Knut, thanks for your clarification on 28th. 

I checked whether the columnNameMatches(String columnName) method in ResultColumn class is
called after the above query, but it did not. I think the reason is Derby only check for matching
column names, but in this case random() is not identified as a "ColumnReference".

Like to get your views !!

> If I read the SQL standard correctly, a statement such as "select random() as r from
t order by random()" should be treated as "select random() as r from t order by r". Derby
does however generate a second, hidden random() column by which the rows are ordered.
> ij> create table t(x int);
> 0 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> ij> insert into t values 1,2,3,4,5;
> 5 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> ij> -- wrong result, not ordered by r
> ij> select random() as r from t order by random();
> R
