Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6121) Regularize how we refer to object names in the Reference Manual
Date Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:42:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6121?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13781808#comment-13781808

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-6121:
----------------------------------

Thanks, Knut.

I was wondering what to do about the tableFunctionInvocation topic -- a table function is
a special type of function, but the function name syntax is the same, of course. I can commit
this patch and file another to fix this item (and anything else anyone notices).

I am wondering whether to commit this patch to both the trunk and the 10.10 branch or just
to the trunk. The change is kind of disruptive and almost the equivalent of a new feature,
for docs. On the other hand, committing it to the branch will not result in any invalid information
or break anything. Any thoughts?

> This issue came up during the buddy testing of user-defined aggregates. Here's what Dag
discovered:
>     identifiers (seen when looking at GRANT USAGE of aggregates): "table-Name" occurences
are linked to a section explainig them (rreftablename.html), but UDA names are defined in-lined
as 
>       GRANT USAGE ON DERBY AGGREGATE [ schemaName. ] SQL92Identifier TO grantees
>     In a third variant, 
>       GRANT EXECUTE ON { FUNCTION | PROCEDURE } routine-designator TO grantees
>     routine-designator is defined locally as 
>       routine-designator { function-name | procedure-name }  
>     without links to what "function-name" or "procedure-name" might look like. It would
be good to harmonize the latter two forms to a central definition as for "table-Name".
>     Finally, I noted that the definition page for SchemaName doesn't link to the SQL92Identifier
page...
