Subject Re: Derby Equivalent of MySql queries
Date Thu, 22 Nov 2007 18:04:30 GMT
Hi Aneez,

The LIMIT syntax is not part of the SQL standard (yet at least...), and 
may as such be considered a MySQL dialect.

Derby does not support LIMIT, but we are working on implementing.the 
approach taken in the SQL standard using the ROW_NUMBER() function for 
the upcoming 10.4 release.You can find some more infromation on this 
exact topic at

If you need to do this, I regret to say you need to do programatically 
in the java application as of Derby 10.3. This is also regrettably what 
happens when application programmers rely on non-portable SQL (or any 
other non-standard, non-portable functionallity for that matter).

There is a good comparison write-up of different databases and their 
support for similar functionallity here:
