query limitation? [message #435085] Mon, 14 December 2009 04:14 Go to next message

Dear all,

I have a problem using the occi call interface with a query which works in interactive mode but fails using the interface. I suspect that this is a limiation in the interface. The query has the follwing structure:
select distinct
table2 join (
select max(time) as max_date from
table2 join
table1 on
      time > timestamp1 AND
      time < timestamp2 AND
      [...] AND
      [...] group by table1.a,table2.id order by table1.a ) b
on table2.timestamp=b.max_date join table1 on
      time > timestamp1 AND
      time < timestamp2 AND
      [...] AND

The query fails with a

Unable to use database: ORA-32109: invalid column or parameter position

which I suspect has to do with the nested select.

Am I missing something obvious here, or is there a general problem with the kind of query using the occi?

Any suggestions appreciated.


P.S. I suspect that also the query might not be optimal, but it does what it is supposed to, and the optimization would a question for a different forum, so.....

Could you rewrite it? Perhaps OCCI doesn't like ANSI joins? Something like
select ...
from table1 t1, table2 t2
where t1.id = t2.id
  and t2.timestamp = (select max(t11.time_stamp) 
                      from table2 t21
                      where t21.id = t2.id
                        and ...
  and ...
