Derby's handling of union subqueries in from list can be improved by materializing invariant resultsets once, rather than creating them many times.
create view V1 as select i, j from T1 union select i,j from T2;
create view V2 as select a,b from T3 union select a,b from T4;
insert into T1 values (1,1), (2,2), (3,3), (4,4), (5,5);
For a query like select * from V1, V2 where V1.j = V2.b and V1.i in (1,2,3,4,5), it is possible the resultset for V2 is created 5 times. (assuming V2 is choosen as the the inner table) This can be very costly if the underlying selects can take long time and also may perform union many times.
Enhance materialization logic in setOperatorNode.java. It currently returns FALSE always.
public boolean performMaterialization(JBitSet outerTables)
// RESOLVE - just say no to materialization right now - should be a cost based decision
/* Actual materialization, if appropriate, will be placed by our parent PRN.
- This is because PRN might have a join condition to apply. (Materialization
- can only occur before that.
