Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5236) Client driver silently truncates strings that exceed 32KB
Date Sat, 02 Jul 2011 14:15:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5236?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13059027#comment-13059027

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-5236:

Right, I only did a quick search for how length was represented various places, and I haven't
yet done any research into what's the relevant definition for the length field in this particular
method. One example I found was in V4, vol 2, p 48:

Field Length
    format: signed binary integer
    units: characters for DBCS; else bytes
        0 - 32767 for SBCS and mixed SBCS/DBCS
        0 - 16383 for DBCS

I believe SBCS is single-byte character set and DBCS is double-byte character set. Now, UTF-8
is a variable-width encoding and therefore neither SBCS nor DBCS, strictly speaking.

> Can be seen with this JUnit test case that retrieves a VARCHAR value with 20000 characters.
With the client driver, the string is truncated to 10900 characters (32700 bytes when encoded
in UTF-8).

>                 "values cast(? as varchar(20000))");
