Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-672) Re-enable user defined aggregates
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2012 08:03:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-672?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13473075#comment-13473075
] 

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-672:
------------------------------------------

In UserAggregateDefinition.getJavaClass():

+        if ( "byte[]".equals( javaClassName ) ) { javaClassName = "[B"; }

Perhaps just return byte[].class directly, so that we get rid of one of the magic strings?
And maybe add a short comment saying why byte[] needs special handling.

It might also be helpful to add a class-level javadoc comment to LobMode describing what kind
of operation it implements.

The catch clause in LobMode.toString(Object) loses the stack trace of the original exception.
Using "throw new IllegalArgumentException(e)" would produce a better trace, should it ever
fail.

> Nicolas Dufour in an email thread titled "functions and list" started on November 2,
2005 requests the ability to create user defined aggregates.
> This functionality used to be in Cloudscape. It was disabled presumably because it was
considered non-standard. However, most of the machinery needed for this feature is still in
the code. We should re-enable user defined aggregates after we agree on acceptable syntax.
