Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1748) Global case insensitive setting
Date Wed, 10 Mar 2010 08:01:37 GMT
Not sure what you mean so I'll assume you are thinking of string comparisons 
in SQL.

All string comparisons I've tested become case insensitive with a database 
that uses TERRITORY_BASED:SECONDARY collation. I've tested the following

name LIKE 'a%'
 matches both "Adam" and "adam"

name = 'adam'
 matches both "Adam" and "adam"

name BETWEEN 'a' AND 'c'
 matches both "Baker" and "baker"

name >= 'a' AND name <= 'c'
 matches both "Baker" and "baker"

JOIN's also compare case insensitively.
