Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-3155) Support for SQL:2003 MERGE statement
Date Mon, 26 Aug 2013 13:50:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3155?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13750091#comment-13750091

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-3155:

Thanks for spotting that JavaCC warning, Knut. I turned on verbose compilation and saw the
same warning on the trunk at the point where I last sync'd. However, I don't see that warning
after applying the trivial grammar change which addressed a previous problem you discovered:
lack of support for multiple MATCHED clauses. After making that trivial grammar change, the
verbose parser output looks like this for me:

     [echo]   Generating SQL parser...
     [java] Java Compiler Compiler Version 4.0 (Parser Generator)
     [java] (type "javacc" with no arguments for help)
     [java] Reading from file sqlgrammar.jj . . .
     [java] Note: UNICODE_INPUT option is specified. Please make sure you create the parser/lexer
using a Reader with the correct character encoding.
     [java] File "TokenMgrError.java" does not exist.  Will create one.
     [java] File "ParseException.java" does not exist.  Will create one.
     [java] File "Token.java" does not exist.  Will create one.
     [java] File "CharStream.java" does not exist.  Will create one.
     [java] Parser generated successfully.

So I think that the parser warning will disappear on trunk when I submit my next patch. Thanks.

> A relatively common piece of logic in a database application is to check for a row's
existence and then either update or insert depending on its existence.
> SQL:2003 added a MERGE statement to perform this operation.  It looks like this:
>     MERGE INTO table_name USING table_name ON (condition)
>     WHEN MATCHED THEN UPDATE SET column1 = value1 [, column2 = value2 ...]
>     WHEN NOT MATCHED THEN INSERT column1 [, column2 ...] VALUES (value1 [, value2 ...])

> At the moment, the only workaround for this would be to write a stored procedure to do
the same operation, or to implement the logic client-side.
