Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Created: (ODATA-622) Allow comparison of geo types, binary to null.
Allow comparison of geo types, binary to null. ---------------------------------------------- Key: ODATA-622 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-622 Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC Issue Type: Improvement Components: OData Protocol , OData URL Conventions Affects Versions: V4.0_OS Environment: [Proposed] Reporter: Michael Pizzo Priority: Minor Fix For: V4.1_WD01 We currently prohibit the use of eq, ne with binary and geo values, as these values are typically not comparable. However, it is valid to compare these values to null. This is handled in database systems, for example, by having "is null" and "is not null" operators, but since in OData we decided (after long debate) to use "eq null" and "ne null" to compare to null values (with appropriate null propagation rules) we inadvertently disallowed the common and useful case of comparing binary and geo values to null. -- This message is automatically generated by JIRA. - If you think it was sent incorrectly contact one of the administrators: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/secure/Administrators.jspa - For more information on JIRA, see: http://www.atlassian.com/software/jira
