TableExists does not work for temporary tables


(Toolkit :: Storage, defect)

Not set

(Whiteboard: [good-first-bug][mentor=mak][lang=cpp])


(1 file, 1 obsolete file)

if you create a temporary table it's stored in sqlite_temp_master, TableExists only queries sqlite_master, so it will return false even if the table exists.
and i suppose the issue is valid also for IndexExists

Are you sure this was omitted by mistake? maybe it was intentionally designed like that?

Yes, the main use-case for this API is to verify if a table exist mostly before creating it. It is mostly used in migration. In such a case you need to know if that name is already in use generally.
In your case you seem to point out the need to distinguish temp from real resources, and for such a thing I suggest filing a separate bug to add an API like isTempResource() to better handle that.

Marco, do you think this is still a valid issue? I'm going through old "good first bug" to verify if they are still valid or something is changed in the meanwhile.
Flags: needinfo?(mak77)
yes, still valid.

I think this is something close to what you're looking for.

Local tests worked properly, and so I went for a quick TRY push:

I think I'll nag ping the review request :-)

(I realize this bug has been on file for a couple years so it's obviously not high priority)
You are right, I'm on it.

good catch on fixing Sqlite.jsm
just some minor things to cleanup

you don't need to append, you should be able to just:
nsCString query("SELECT name FROM (SELECT * FROM sqlite_master UNION ALL "
                                  "SELECT * FROM sqlite_temp_master) "
                "WHERE type ='");

Notice I didn't use an autostring cause the string is bigger than the autostring stack buffer, so there's no win in using an autostring in this case.

it's good habit to clean up whatever you do in a test to avoid confusing next tests, so please after the test DROP TABLE
