Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-6037) ResultSet.getString() doesn't return null on SQL NULL columns
Date Mon, 07 Jan 2013 17:32:18 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6037?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Unai Vivi updated DERBY-6037:
-----------------------------

       Priority: Minor  (was: Major)
    Description: 
ResultSet.getString() doesn't return null on SQL NULL columns of type VARCHAR; it returns
the string "null" instead.
I tried derby versions 10.8.2.2 and 10.9.1.0 (derby.jar - embedded) and both show the same
behaviour.

ResultSet javadocs state that the returned value shall be "the column value; if the value
is SQL NULL, the value returned is null" (null, not the String containing n-u-l-l of .length()
4).

I'm not sure if this bug report belongs here or on Oracle's ResultSet implementation.


  was:
ResultSet.wasNull() returns false after a ResultSet.getString("COLUMNNAME") on a null VARCHAR
field.
I tried derby versions 10.8.2.2 and 10.9.1.0 (derby.jar - embedded) and both show the same
behaviour.

E.g.
<pre>

        ResultSet rs = null;
        //[...]
            rs = s.executeQuery("select EXAMPLE_PK,BLAHBLAH,COLUMN from MYTABLE order by EXAMPLE_PK
desc");
            while (rs.next())
            {
                //[...]
                String myStr = rs.getString("COLUMN");//all rows have SQL null for field COLUMN
                if (rs.wasNull())
                {//never gets here
                    //[...]
                }
//[...]

</pre>

        Urgency: Low  (was: Normal)
        Summary: ResultSet.getString() doesn't return null on SQL NULL columns  (was: ResultSet.wasNull()
returns false for null VARCHAR columns)
