Class IsNullOperator

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class IsNullOperator
    extends Expression
    • Field Summary

      Modifier and Type Field Description
      private Expression expr
      The expression to evaluate for "nullness".
      private boolean invert
      If this is false, the operator computes IS NULL; if true, the operator computes IS NOT NULL.
    • Field Detail

      • expr

        private Expression expr
        The expression to evaluate for "nullness".
      • invert

        private boolean invert
        If this is false, the operator computes IS NULL; if true, the operator computes IS NOT NULL.

    • Method Detail

      • getColumnInfo

        public ColumnInfo getColumnInfo​(Schema schema)
                                 throws SchemaNameException
        Description copied from class: Expression
        Returns a ColumnInfo object describing the type (and possibly the name) of the expression's result.
        Specified by:
        getColumnInfo in class Expression
        schema - a schema object that can be used to look up name and type details for symbols referenced by the expression.
        a column-information object describing the type (and possibly the name and table-name) of this expression's result
        SchemaNameException - if a symbol cannot be resolved, either because it doesn't appear in the schema, or because the name is ambiguous.
      • evaluate

        public java.lang.Object evaluate​(Environment env)
                                  throws ExpressionException
        Description copied from class: Expression
        Evaluates this expression object in the context of the specified environment. The environment provides any external information necessary to evaluate the expression, such as the current tuples loaded from tables referenced within the expression.
        Specified by:
        evaluate in class Expression
        env - the environment to look up symbol-values from, when evaluating the expression
        the result of the expression evaluation
        ExpressionException - if the expression cannot be evaluated for some reason.
      • simplify

        public Expression simplify()
        Simplifies this expression, computing as much of the expression as possible.
        simplify in class Expression
        a reference to an expression, either a simplified version of this expression, or the original unmodified expression
      • traverse

        public Expression traverse​(ExpressionProcessor p)
        Description copied from class: Expression

        This method allows the entire expression tree to be traversed node by node, either for analysis or for transformation. The ExpressionProcessor instance receives notifications as each node in the expression is entered and left.

        The expression tree can also be manipulated by this traversal process, depending on what the ExpressionProcessor wants to do. If the expression node that traverse() is invoked on, needs to be replaced with a new expression node, the replacement is returned by the traverse() method. (The ExpressionProcessor specifies the replacement as the return-value from the ExpressionProcessor.leave(Expression) method.)

        Specified by:
        traverse in class Expression
        p - the object that performs analysis or transformation of the expression tree
        an Expression node to replace this node, or null if no changes are to be made.
      • equals

        public boolean equals​(java.lang.Object obj)
        Description copied from class: Expression
        Checks if the argument is an expression with the same structure, but not necesarily the same references.
        Specified by:
        equals in class Expression
        obj - the object to which we are comparing
      • hashCode

        public int hashCode()
        Description copied from class: Expression
        Computes the hashcode of an Expression. This method is used to see if two expressions CAN be equal.
        Specified by:
        hashCode in class Expression
      • toString

        public java.lang.String toString()
        toString in class java.lang.Object
      • clone

        protected java.lang.Object clone()
                                  throws java.lang.CloneNotSupportedException
        Creates a copy of expression.
        clone in class Expression
