Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5466) Add support for SQL Standard statistics functions, such as STDDEV_POP, STDDEV_SAMP, VAR_POP, VAR_SAMP
Date Tue, 04 Aug 2015 19:49:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5466?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14654248#comment-14654248
] 

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-5466:
--------------------------------------

Thanks, Scott. You will eliminate the out-of-memory possibility (and the 2-pass nature of
the Sybase approach) if you make the following additional changes:

1) Replace the ArrayList field with a Sums field.

2) Eliminate the computeSums() method, moving the += lines into accumulate().

A class header comment showing the IBM formula you are using would be nice too.

Thanks!
-Rick

> Any of these RDBMS support the SQL standard statistics functions STDDEV_POP, STDDEV_SAMP,
VAR_POP, VAR_SAMP:
> - DB2 (only STDDEV, VARIANE)
> - H2 
> - HSQLDB 
> - Ingres 
> - MySQL 
> - Oracle 
> - Postgres 
> - SQL Server (named STDEVP, STDEV, VARP, VAR)
> - Sybase ASE
> - Sybase SQL Anywhere
> These don't:
> - Derby
> - SQLite
> This would be a useful addition for Derby, I think.
> An even larger example list of possible statistics aggregate functions is listed in the
Postgres documentation:
