Subject Re: [SPARK-29176][DISCUSS] Optimization should change join type to CROSS
Date Wed, 06 Nov 2019 16:21:03 GMT
So you say the optimized inner join with no conditions is also a valid 

Then I agree the optimizer is not breaking the query, hence it is not a bug.

The type should have changed to CROSS when it gets optimized in that way.
