Subject Crearting an INDEX on null values
Date Thu, 13 Aug 2009 23:24:54 GMT

I have this table with a cloumn A whose value may be null. I'd like to
create an index on A, so that I can efficiently access rows using WHERE A=?
statements. I would never of course need to access rows whose A value is

For better performance, can I tell Derby not to index rows whose A value is
null? If so, how? Should I create at all an index on a column which is not
defined as NOT NULL? Will it improve performance?
