Subject Re: how to raise/throw an exception
Date Fri, 26 Feb 2010 13:59:26 GMT
That's what i do in SQLite. The question is how to do it in java DB sql syntax.
In sqlite it is SELECT( RAISE, 'error) WHERE ...
in java db??

Also, I was wondering if I could find a way to implement the
constraint as a column constraint. Unfortunately the details , are far
from complete. http://developers.sun.com/docs/javadb/

Basically I'm trying to check that no more than 4 rows have the same
value for the column. In SQL that would be the count -group by query,
as mentioned below, but since that counts as a not allowed subquery,
is there some other way in java db to achieve exactly that?
