Class MinusRel

  extended by org.eigenbase.rel.AbstractRelNode
      extended by org.eigenbase.rel.SetOpRel
          extended by org.eigenbase.rel.MinusRel
All Implemented Interfaces:
Cloneable, RelNode

public final class MinusRel
extends SetOpRel

MinusRel returns the rows of its first input minus any matching rows from its other inputs. If "all" is true, then multiset subtraction is performed; otherwise, set subtraction is performed (implying no duplicates in the results).

Method Detail


public double getRows()
Description copied from interface: RelNode
Returns an estimate of the number of rows this relational expression will return.

NOTE jvs 29-Mar-2006: Don't call this method directly. Instead, use RelMetadataQuery.getRowCount(org.eigenbase.rel.RelNode), which gives plugins a chance to override the rel's default ideas about row count.

Specified by:
getRows in interface RelNode
getRows in class AbstractRelNode


public MinusRel clone()
Description copied from interface: RelNode
Clones this RelNode.

Traits of the RelNode must be explicitly cloned, using AbstractRelNode.inheritTraitsFrom(AbstractRelNode), as the RelNode may have traits of which it has no knowledge. Example implementation:

     public MyRelNode clone()
         MyRelNode clone = new MyRelNode(...);
         return clone;
N.B.: This method must be overridden whenever an existing, concrete RelNode is extended. Otherwise, calling clone() will produce a differently typed RelNode, resulting in invalid or incorrect query plans.
