Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5597) Add support for a SQL REPLACE(in, search, replace) function
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2012 17:05:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5597?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13199863#comment-13199863
] 

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-5597:
--------------------------------------

+1 to adding this function. I agree that it should be easy. The workaround is to code your
own user-written function--I had to do this a couple days ago for one of my own applications.

>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: SQL
>    Affects Versions: 10.8.2.2

> I don't know any other database that lacks this type of function (even SQLite has it):
> REPLACE(in, search)
> REPLACE(in, search, replace)
> But according to the Derby docs, this doesn't exist in Derby:
> http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.8/ref/rrefsqlj29026.html
> It would be quite simple to implement, I guess. Yet really useful for many people. Some
documentation examples from other databases:
