Error description

  • A dynamic query may fail at execution time with SQLCODE -901
    and reason code "Constant of unsupported type".  This can occur
    when all the following are true:
    
    - REOPT ONCE is enabled
    - The statement includes at least one REOPT supported variable
    - The query references an array global variable
    
    For example:
    
       create table t (c int);
       create type intarray as int array[2];
       create variable arrayvar intarray;
       creaet variable intVar int default 2;
    
       set arrayvar[2] = 200;
    
       call set_routine_opts('REOPT ONCE');
    
       create procedure P
       language sql
       begin atomic
        declare stmtText varchar(1024) default 'delete from t where
    c = arrayvar[2] or c =intVar'; --
        prepare stmt from stmtText; --
        execute stmt; --
       end;
    
       call P();
       SQL0901N  The SQL statement or command failed because of a
    database system
       error. (Reason "Constant of unsupported type".)
    SQLSTATE=58004
    

Local fix

  • Disable REOPT ONCE.
