Ensure WHERE clause terms involving tables on the right end of a join are not prematurely evaluated when tables on the left end of the join make use of the OR-clause optimization. Fix for ticket [31338dca7e]. (check-in: 2c2de252 user: drh tags: trunk)

Title: OR operator in WHERE clause gives wrong answer when indexed
Status: Fixed Type: Code_Defect
Severity: Critical Priority: Immediate
Subsystem: Unknown Resolution: Fixed
Last Modified: 2009-12-16 22:11:58
Version Found In: 3.6.21
Description:
The following code shows two identical queries, one before indices were created and the other after. The presence of indices should never change the result of a query, but in this case it does:
CREATE TABLE t1(x);
CREATE TABLE t2(y);
INSERT INTO t1 VALUES(111);
INSERT INTO t1 VALUES(222);
INSERT INTO t2 VALUES(333);
INSERT INTO t2 VALUES(444);

SELECT 'noindex', * FROM t1, t2
 WHERE (x=111 AND y!=444) OR x=222;

CREATE INDEX t1x ON t1(x);

SELECT 'w/index', * FROM t1, t2
 WHERE (x=111 AND y!=444) OR x=222;

This is problem is observed in SQLite versions 3.6.18 through 3.6.21. Versions 3.6.17 and earlier appear to work.

Another interesting test case. This one gives an assertion fault.

CREATE TABLE t1(v,w);
CREATE TABLE t2(x,y);
CREATE TABLE t3(z);
INSERT INTO t1 VALUES(111,222);
INSERT INTO t1 VALUES(333,444);
INSERT INTO t2 VALUES(222,333);
INSERT INTO t2 VALUES(444,555);
INSERT INTO t3 VALUES(888);
INSERT INTO t3 VALUES(999);

CREATE INDEX t1v ON t1(v);
CREATE INDEX t2x ON t2(x);

SELECT * FROM t1, t2, t3
 WHERE (v=111 AND x=w AND z!=999) OR (v=333 AND x=444);
