Danoja Dias updated DERBY-853:
------------------------------
    Comment: was deleted

(was: {quote}did it fix the Derby853.java test?{quote}

Yes. It fixed Derby853.java test.

{quote}I wonder if there is a way to fix this somewhere near line 258 instead,
because it seems like at line 258 we shouldn't even be calling the
getScale() method if higherType is not a DECIMAL type, so maybe that
call get getScale() should be inside the "if" test at line 260?{quote}

Yes. We shouldn't call getScale() is it is not decimal. 
I'll check it and attach a new patch.)

> If a DOUBLE column is returned in the result set then getScale() returns 0.
> If a DOUBLE expression is returned and the expression is the result of a DOUBLE combined
with a DECIMAL then it seems the scale from the decimal sometimes affects the result set metadata.
> E.g. DECIMAL(10,2) - DOUBLE returns a DOUBLE with getScale() returning 2.
> See the test output for jdbcapi/metadata.java
> double -- precision: 15 scale: 0 display size: 22 type name: DOUBLE
> double precision - dec(10,2) -- precision: 15 scale: 0 display size: 22 type name: DOUBLE
> dec(10,2) - double precision -- precision: 15 scale: 2 display size: 22 type name: DOUBLE
> First line is a DOUBLE column, second is DOUBLE - DECIMAL, third is DECIMAL - DOUBLE
> I assume the scale  should always be zero for a DOUBLE, as it holds no meaning, but I
can't see any proof of that in JDBC spec, javadoc or tutorial book.
