Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5779) Table functions and vtis should only accept arguments which are constant in their query block.
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2012 16:34:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5779?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13290246#comment-13290246

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-5779:

Sounds like a good plan to me. As long as we can't express the intent of the query in another
way (maybe recursive SQL would enable it?), *and* we can define the semantics precisely, I
guess we could retain the syntax for VTIs.

> Derby lets you invoke a table function/vti in the FROM list of a query, passing in arguments
built out of columns in other tables in the FROM list. This syntax is illegal and the resulting
queries have no meaning under the SQL Standard. See the discussion on DERBY-5554. We should
forbid this syntax. Similar syntax involving correlated subqueries in the FROM list is already
forbidden. Fixing this will create a backward incompatibility which requires a release note.
In particular, the sample usage for SYSCS_DIAG.SPACE_TABLE, given in the Reference Manual,
will no longer work after fixing this bug. Changes to SPACE_TABLE are being discussed on DERBY-5554.
