Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5546) ResultSet#updateBigDecimal on a REAL column does not do underflow checking
Date Tue, 20 Dec 2011 17:16:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5546?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13173316#comment-13173316

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-5546:

I agree about your interpretation of the API comment about precision loss. I took my cues
from the current way this is current handled, cf. the code in SQLReal#setDouble:

   float fv = (float) theValue;
   // detect rounding taking place at cast time
   if (fv == 0.0f && theValue != 0.0d) {
      throw StandardException.newException(

This is indeed (only) a special case of precision loss. I haven't found any definitions about
what should happen in the JDBC standard, so I guess it's implementation defined. With my patch
the behavior is more consistent. We could also signal other forms of precision loss, like
the one you show, or we could stop throwing on the above also. What do you think?

>            Priority: Minor
>         Attachments: MissingUnderflowCheck.java, derby-5546.diff, derby-5546.stat
> In contrast, ResultSet#updateBigDecimal on a FLOAT or DOUBLE column gives the expected
error on underflow. Cf. the attached repro program MissingUnderflowCheck.
