package org.apache.calcite.rex
Provides a language for representing rowexpressions.
Lifecycle
A SqlToRelConverter
converts a SQL
parse tree consisting of SqlNode
objects into
a relational expression (RelNode
). Several
kinds of nodes in this tree have row expressions
(RexNode
).
After the relational expression has been optimized, a
JavaRelImplementor
converts it
into to a plan. If the plan is a Java parse tree, rowexpressions are
translated into equivalent Java expressions.
Expressions
Every rowexpression has a type. (Compare with
SqlNode
, which is created before validation,
and therefore types may not be available.)
Every node in the parse tree is a RexNode
.
Subtypes are:
RexLiteral
represents a boolean, numeric, string, or date constant, or the valueNULL
.RexVariable
represents a leaf of the tree. It has subtypes:RexCorrelVariable
is a correlating variable for nestedloop joinsRexInputRef
refers to a field of an input relational expressionRexCall
is a call to an operator or function. By means of special operators, we can use this construct to represent virtually every nonleaf node in the tree.RexRangeRef
refers to a collection of contiguous fields from an input relational expression. It usually exists only during translation.
Expressions are generally
created using a RexBuilder
factory.
