Attempt to create temporary Falcon table with a key fails. This does not happen all the time, but is totally repeatable in PB or when the test below is run under MTR2. See how-to-repeat for details.

How to repeat:
# Script for 'mysqltest' tool which reproduces the problem.
--source include/have_falcon.inc
set storage_engine= Falcon;
let $engine_type= Falcon;

drop table if exists t2;
# Emits "ERROR 1005: Can't create table 'test.t2' (errno: 124)"
create temporary table t2 (s1 int, key(s1));

Thank you for the report.

Verified as described. Bug is not repeatable with version 6.0.8

This failure was introduced into the falcon-team tree by the following merge:

revno: 2995
committer: Hakan Kuecuekyilmaz <hky@sun.com>
branch nick: mysql-6.0-falcon-team
timestamp: Tue 2009-02-03 21:54:37 +0100

This was a down-merge from mysql-6.0->mysql6.0-falcon->mysql-6.0-falcon-team. It contains the new MTR2 version. 

So this regression seems to be triggered by changes in how to test is run or the test environment. More investigations to follow.

The bug is highlighted by a change in MTR2. With MTR1 the following "mySqlName" is passed into StorageInterface::create:


while with MTR2 the "mySqlName" is:


Using these two, Falcon uses a schemaName = TMP in the first case and schemaName = MYSQLD.1 in the second case.

The failure occurs when Falcon tries to create an index on the table by constructing the following SQL statement:

 create index "#SQL2D05_2_0$S1" on MYSQLD.1."#SQL2D05_2_0" ("S1")

When Falcon parses this statement the following error is created internally in Falcon:

  syntax error on line 1
  create index "#SQL2D05_2_0$S1" on MYSQLD.1."#SQL2D05_2_0" ("S1")
  ^ expected name list got .1

In above SQL string everything except the schema name is "quoted". The quoting occurs in the following code in StorageInterface::createIndex() in ha_falcon.cpp:

  gen.gen("create %sindex \"%s\" on %s.\"%s\" ", unique, indexDesc.name, schemaName, tableName);

BTW: removing the "regression" tag since this is an exiting bug and not a regression in Falcon.

      Fix for Bug#42752 Error when creating Falcon temporary table with a key
      The cause for this bug was that the schema name contained a "." (like: 
      mysql.1) and when creating an index using this schema name in the create
      index statement the schema name was un-qouted which lead to the Falcon
      parser issuing an error.
      The fix adds qoutes around the schema name in Falcon's create index
      A test case for the bug is included.
