Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-5901) You can declare user-defined functions which shadow builtin functions by the same name.
Date Mon, 13 Aug 2012 15:28:37 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5901?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-5901:
---------------------------------

    Bug behavior facts: Deviation from standard,Wrong query result  (was: Wrong query result)

Marking this issue as "deviation from standard". The SQL Standard addresses the ABS case by
making ABS a reserved keyword. That is, if Derby followed the Standard in this matter, then
you would not be allowed to declare a user-defined function with the name ABS. The ABS case
arises in Derby because Derby treats ABS as a non-reserved keyword. Changing ABS to a reserved
keyword would create backward-compatibility problems.

>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Bug

> You can override a Derby builtin function by creating a function with the same name.
This can give rise to wrong results.
> Consider the following user code:
> public class FakeSin
> {
>     public  static  Double  sin( Double input ) { return new Double( 3.0 ); }
> }
> Now run the following script:
> connect 'jdbc:derby:memory:db;create=true';
> values sin( 0.5 );
> create function sin( a double ) returns double language java parameter style java no
sql external name 'FakeSin.sin';
> values sin( 0.5 );
> values sin(  0.5 );
> Note the following:
> 1) The first invocation of sin() returns the expected result.
> 2) You are allowed to create a user-defined function named "sin" which can shadow the
builtin function.
> 3) The second invocation of sin() returns the result of running the builtin function.
This is because the second invocation is character-for-character identical to the first, so
Derby just uses the previously prepared statement. 
> 4) But the third invocation of sin() returns the result of running the user-defined function.
Note that the third invocation has an extra space in it, which causes Derby to compile it
from scratch, picking up the user-defined function instead of the builtin one.
