Re: Accessing read records during join for condition pushdown


My own digging here and there reveals me that the data I am looking for resides inside a JOIN_CACHE object inside a JOIN_TAB.

However, it seems that the data can't be accessed unless some fields and methods are moved from protected to public in the class. Am I right here? Is there other (easier) way to accomplish what I am trying to do? (to recap: access "on the fly" records during a JOIN so that I can use that data for condition pushdown).

Subject: [Maria-developers] Accessing read records during join for condition pushdown

Hello list (first email here, hopefully sending it to the right address),
I have been trying to solve this problem for a while now, and I am stuck. I wonder if what I am trying to do is even possible.

I am implementing a new storage engine which handles engine condition pushdown. Now, when MariaDB is working on a JOIN using more than one table (for simplicity, let's assume 2), how can I access the read records for table 1 when working on a condition pushdown for table 2? When joining like this: table1.field1 = table2.field1, I can see 2 Item objects of type FIELD in the condition. However, I can't find where the read records for table1 are so I can effectively filter records in table2 by those values.

Thanks a lot for your help,
