      Description

      We have a complex SQL joining 11 Tables via INNER JOIN and OUTER JOIN.
      These SQLs were tested against an z/OS DB2 Version 8.
      After moving to our local platform with Derby we found out the resultsets returned by the SQLs were too less.

      I tested our "old style" SQL which results in 889 rows.
      Our new style SQL expected to give similar rows but gives 0.

      After some work we found a workaround: first place all the "INNER JOIN"s in the SQL and then the "OUTER JOIN"s.

      Result of testprogram
      Derby=10.3-b561794
      Test 10.3-b561794-old-style-sql

      WHERE O4Work.ESVN01.NU_BUY_CPY = 99 AND O4Work.ESVNA0.NU_CPY_GRP = 0
      

      Another curious behavior is that leaving out the condition O4Work.ESVNA0.NU_CPY_GRP = 0 in the first SQL will give us the result of 924 all having O4Work.ESVNA0.NU_CPY_GRP = 0. So evaluation of the condition is buggy, too.

      I think there may be a dependency between this issue and these ones:
      DERBY-1681 (Regression (wrong results): Join predicate can be ignored for left-most child in a chain of nested unions.)
      DERBY-1633 (Regression: The fields of views are not being calculated properly since 10.1.2.4)

      Attached is an Eclipse project with the Test-Program (without the Derby-Libraries) and the several RUNTIMESTATISTICS.
