Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6623) DatabaseMetaDataTest fails intermittently
Date Tue, 24 Jun 2014 08:33:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6623?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14041866#comment-14041866

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-6623:

My expectation would be that it only returned one of them. The javadoc says: "Retrieves a
description of a table's optimal set of columns that uniquely identifies a row." And (I, J)
sounds like a less optimal set than (I) or (J), since it's bigger and has some redundancy.

I think the current behaviour is fine, but I see no harm in adding some extra ordering so
that it is deterministic which constraint is used in case of ties.

The reference manual actually has [a topic|https://builds.apache.org/job/Derby-docs/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/trunk/out/ref/index.html]
that describes how getBestRowIdentifier() works. It's more detailed than the JDBC specification,
but it does not say anything about ties.
