Subject [jira] [Created] (DERBY-6653) Data type limitations on indexes should be in Reference Manual
Date Wed, 09 Jul 2014 13:49:04 GMT
Kim Haase created DERBY-6653:
--------------------------------

             Summary: Data type limitations on indexes should be in Reference Manual
                 Key: DERBY-6653
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6653
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 10.11.0.0
            Reporter: Kim Haase
            Assignee: Kim Haase
            Priority: Minor


The Tuning Guide topic "Create useful indexes" (http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.10/tuning/ctundepth1002853.html)
has the following excessively vague note at the end:

"Note: Derby does not support indexing on columns with data types like BLOB, CLOB, and XML."

The topic also has a cross-reference to the "CREATE INDEX statement" topic in the Derby Reference
Manual, but that topic says nothing about data type limitations for index columns. 

In an email exchange, Knut says that LONG VARCHAR and user-defined types should be added to
make the list complete, but he also suggests moving this information from the tuning guide
to the "CREATE INDEX statement" topic in the Reference Manual, since we already reference
that topic and since the information needs to be there.
