> DERBY-4684 fixed problems in implicit casts to BOOLEAN. However, the query which created
the implicit casts should raise an error for other reasons:
> select isindex from sys.sysconglomerates where conglomeratename = 'foo'
> union
> values ( 'true' )
> This should fail because if either of the datatypes being UNIONed is BOOLEAN, then both
should be BOOLEAN. Here is my reasoning, copied from the related discussion on DERBY:
> 1) The rules for determining whether two datatypes are union compatible are stated in
the SQL Standard in part 2, section 7.3 (<query expression>), syntax rule 20.b.ii.
> 2) That, in turn, refers the reader to section 9.3 (Result of data type combinations).
> 3) Section 9.3, syntax rule 3.g says that if either of two values to be merged is BOOLEAN,
then both must be BOOLEAN.
