Subject [jira] Updated: (OPENJPA-1308) shouldn't always use CAST with UPPER and LOWER for DB2
Date Thu, 15 Oct 2009 15:08:31 GMT


B.J. Reed updated OPENJPA-1308:

    Attachment: OPENJPA-1308-trunk.patch

Attached patches to be considered for inclusion to OpenJPA.  No real differences in the patches
except that the 1.0.x patch includes a new test case that wasn't already present in 1.0.x
(the other 2 just modify the existing test case).

For the most part, the change is that when UPPER or LOWER are used, DB2Dictionary looks to
see what the database column is defined as before doing the cast.  In this way, if the column
is already a VARCHAR, then indexes would still be used since no cast would be generated.

> Using DB2, when a user uses the UPPER or LOWER function, the field is automatically CAST
to a varchar.  It would be nice if OpenJPA were a little smarter and only used CAST when necessary.
 Using the CAST causes any indexes not to be used so performance won't be what it should.
> I saw some other DB2 functions that also are always CAST, so we may need to improve these
