CMIS Query with a "null predicate" containing a "multi-valued-column reference" throws exception

A CMIS Query with a “null predicate” containing a “multi-valued-column reference” throws an exception. A sample query that demonstrates the problem is listed below as is the exception stack trace. Please confirm this is a bug that I should record in JIRA.

SELECT cmis:objectId FROM cmis:document WHERE dc:subjects IS NOT NULL

I believe it's a bug but on the other hand the current code is not intended to work with null predicates and multi-valued properties. I'm not sure we can find an efficient way to do that. Please open a JIRA anyway.

See NXP-12642

WHERE clauses with (dc:subjects IS NULL OR dc:subjects NOT IN ('foo')) will likely be common. It seems reasonable to explicitly look for these types of multi-valued column ref OR clauses and optimize them with NOT EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM … WHERE … IN …) sub-queries. Does this seem reasonable?

Added a comment to NXP-12642.

Please discuss in the ticket the exact semantics you imagine for dc:subjects IS NULL OR ANY dc:subjects NOT IN (&apos;foo&apos;) because I'm not sure the spec matches your expectation. The CMIS 1.1 spec says (§2.1.14.2.4.3) that ANY dc:subjects NOT IN (&apos;foo&apos;) evaluates to TRUE if at least one subject is not 'foo'.

If you want something to be optimized into NOT EXISTS (SELECT 1 ... WHERE ... dc_subjects.item = &apos;foo&apos;) then it would be dc:subjects IS NULL OR NOT ANY dc:subjects IN (&apos;foo&apos;).

Yes, thanks for the clarification.
