With SQLite 3.32, test_sqlite fails with:

FAIL: CheckFuncDeterministic (sqlite3.test.userfunctions.FunctionTests)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/builddir/build/BUILD/Python-3.9.0b1/Lib/sqlite3/test/", line 290, in CheckFuncDeterministic
    self.assertEqual(mock.call_count, 1)
AssertionError: 2 != 1

This test defines a "deterministic" function and ensures that calling it twice in SQLite with only call the underyling Python function only once.

Copy of the test:

    @unittest.skipIf(sqlite.sqlite_version_info < (3, 8, 3), "deterministic parameter not supported")
    def CheckFuncDeterministic(self):
        mock = unittest.mock.Mock(return_value=None)
        self.con.create_function("deterministic", 0, mock, deterministic=True)
        self.con.execute("select deterministic() = deterministic()")
        self.assertEqual(mock.call_count, 1)

In pysqlite_connection_create_function() of Modules/_sqlite/connection.c, determistic=1 sets the following flag:

        flags |= SQLITE_DETERMINISTIC;

This flag is documented as:
"A deterministic function always gives the same answer when it has the same inputs."


"SELECT 1 WHERE deterministic() = deterministic()" query also calls the mock twice.

Running "SELECT deterministic()" query twice also calls the mock twice.

It seems like SQLite 3.32 behaves differently.

Oh, I also tried with a function taking one argument and then call it twice by running "SELECT deterministic(1)" query twice: again, the mock is also called twice.

This seems like it's testing an implementation detail.
msg370050 - (view) Author: Petr Viktorin (petr.viktorin) * (Python committer) Date: 2020-05-27 06:53
Indeed. The SQLite documentation talks about the limitations that non-deterministic functions have, not about deterministic functions being memoized:

The flag would be better tested e.g. with a CHECK constraint:

Hi, folks. I took the liberty to create a PR for this; hope you don't mind. I've used partial indices to test deterministic behaviour.

Python 3.8 and Python 3.9 are also affected, I created backports.

Python 3.7 is not affected: deterministic parameter was added to Python 3.8.
