Subject Is derby sql "real" equivalent to java "float"
Date Tue, 30 Oct 2007 20:01:00 GMT
 

I just saw a derby exception in our app, which seemed to have failed while
converting a Java float to a Derby REAL. at least, that's what our code
should be doing, unless we have some sort of generics leak (unsafe
conversion or something).  I'll dig further to confirm that our code is
correct. Our codebase is pretty mature, and this is the first time I've seen
the error.

 

In the meantime, I'd like to ask.  Should Java float always be safely
settable to a field of Derby type REAL?  This has been my assumption all
along, and refderby.pdf seems to imply this.  Or, are there edge cases, such
as perhaps NaN which will cause the set operation to fail.

 

Here is the offending line in our code.  Presumably, a table which contains
a REAL field should have been selected by the same FLOAT enum value, so this
should be setting a REAL field.

 

      case FLOAT: stmt.setFloat(column, (Float) value); break;

 

Here is the stack trace.  It's too bad derby didn't include the offending
float value in the stack trace.  The failure seems to be generated in
NumberDataType.normalizeREAL.

 

Caused by: java.sql.SQLDataException: The resulting value is outside the
range for the data type REAL.
