Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6008) Allow ORDER BY and FETCH/OFFSET in set operands
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2012 09:41:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6008?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13526258#comment-13526258

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-6008:
-------------------------------------------

Dag, I applied the "c" version of the patch and ran some tests in ij. This particular sequence
didn't look quite right to me:

ij version 10.10
ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:memory:db;create=true';
ij> create table countries(name varchar(20), population int, area int);
0 rows inserted/updated/deleted
ij> insert into countries values
        ('Norway', 5033675, 385252),
        ('Sweden', 9540065, 449964),
        ('Denmark', 5580413, 42894),
        ('Iceland', 320060, 103001),
        ('Liechtenstein', 36281, 160);
5 rows inserted/updated/deleted
ij> SELECT NAME FROM COUNTRIES ORDER BY POPULATION DESC FETCH FIRST 2 ROWS ONLY;
NAME                
--------------------
Sweden              
Denmark             

2 rows selected
ij> SELECT NAME FROM COUNTRIES ORDER BY AREA DESC FETCH FIRST 2 ROWS ONLY;
NAME                
--------------------
Sweden              
Norway              

2 rows selected
ij> (SELECT NAME FROM COUNTRIES ORDER BY POPULATION DESC FETCH FIRST 2 ROWS ONLY)
INTERSECT
(SELECT NAME FROM COUNTRIES ORDER BY AREA DESC FETCH FIRST 2 ROWS ONLY);
NAME                
--------------------
Denmark             
Iceland             

2 rows selected

The intersection of ('Sweden', 'Denmark') and ('Sweden', 'Norway') should be ('Sweden') and
not ('Denmark', 'Iceland').

> Currently, Derby doesn't allow ORDER BY nested in a set operand, e.g. in the following
construct:
> (select i from t1 order by j offset 1 row)    union 
> (select i from t2 order by j desc offset 2 rows)
> This is allowed by the standard, as far as I can understand, cf. this quote from section
7.12 in SQL 2011:
> <query expression body> ::=
>     <query term>
> |   <query expression body> UNION [ ALL | DISTINCT ]
>   [ <corresponding spec> ] <query term>
> |   <query expression body> EXCEPT [ ALL | DISTINCT ]
>   [ <corresponding spec> ] <query term>
> <query term> ::=
>    <query primary>
> |  <query term> INTERSECT [ ALL | DISTINCT ]
>    [ <corresponding spec> ] <query primary>
> <query primary> ::=
>    <simple table>
>   |  <left paren> <query expression body>
>      [ <order by clause> ] [ <result offset clause> ] [ <fetch first clause>
] <right paren>
> I.e. the left paren chooses the second alternative in the production for <query primary>.
