DERBY-4631 Wrong join column returned by right outer join with NATURAL or USING and territory-based
collation 

To recap this issue, SQL:2003 says that the join columns in a natural join or in a named columns
join should be added to the select list by coalescing the column from the left table with
the column from the right table 

Derby has it's on logic to retrieve the join column values. It always picks up join column's
value from the left table when we are working with natural left outer join and it picks up
the join column's value from the right table when we are working with natural right outer
join. 

But this logic does not work for all cases for right outer join. The fix provided in this
patch will pick the join column's value based on following logic(this logic mimics the functionality
of COALESCE) 
1)if the left table's column value is null then pick up the right table's column's value.

2)If the left table's column value is non-null, then pick up that value

> For a right outer join, Derby doesn't use COALESCE(TA.C, TB.C), but
> rather just TB.C (the column in the right table) directly.
> This is in most cases OK, because COALESCE(TA.C, TB.C) = TB.C is an
> invariant in a right outer join. (Because TA.C is either NULL or equal
> to TB.C.)
> However, in a database with territory-based collation, equality
> between two values does not mean they are identical, especially now
> that the strength of the collator can be specified (DERBY-1748).
> Take for instance this join:
> ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:testdb;create=true;territory=en_US;collation=TERRITORY_BASED:SECONDARY';
> ij> create table big(x varchar(5));
> 0 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> ij> insert into big values 'A','B','C';
> 3 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> ij> create table small(x varchar(5));
> 0 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> ij> insert into small values 'b','c','d';
> 3 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> ij> select x, t1.x, t2.x, coalesce(t1.x, t2.x) from small t1 natural right outer join
big t2;
> X    |X    |X    |4    
> -----------------------
> A    |NULL |A    |A    
> B    |b    |B    |b    
> C    |c    |C    |c    
> 3 rows selected
> I believe that the expected result from the above query is that the
> first column should have the same values as the last column. That is,
> the first column should contain {'A', 'b', 'c'}, not {'A', 'B', 'C'}.
