Subject RE: use native limit/offset solution for mssql
Date Tue, 17 Apr 2012 17:27:37 GMT
Closing sounds good... but we might want to think about an MSSQL2012 DB 
Adaptor that uses the new OFFSET / FETCH support... but since this is 
a new server release, that can wait a bit until it's more widespread.

Here's some info about this:

--- From StackOverflow ---
This is working but sql server 2012 onwards. Limit with offset to 
select 11 to 20 rows in sql server:

SELECT email FROM emailTable WHERE id=3
//offset - no. of skipped rows

//next - required no. of next rows

Subject: use native limit/offset solution for mssql

There is a jira ticket
which adds native limit/offset functionality for mssql server.
The problem with mssql server is that it has no sql syntax for offset, it only has a limit
syntax (select top 10 from ...) The solution in the patch is to revert the order by in an
inner query so the limit is once applied from the top side and the next time from the bottom

The problems in this approach are:
- There seems to be a problem if sql functions are used in the order by clause.
- one needs to define an ordering in sql even if none is defined in the query.
- aliases in the order by clause are complicated

Personally, I would not like to replace the current (working) solution (only limit handled
natively) by a solution which might be a bit faster but does not always work / does unexpected
things. So I intend to not apply the patch and mark the issue as wontfix.
Any objections to that ?
