SUGGESTION: New Data Type: Time Intervals

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      I would like to suggest that MariaDB 10.3 implements a new data type to differentiate from SQL Server, PostgreSQL and Oracle: Time Intervals.

      This New Data would be really valuable for doing JOINs between tables which have a Temporal Overlap between Events, and would suppose a disruptive innovation in the RDBMS industry.

      In R package lubridate, Time Intervals are defined as follows:

      R Package Lubridate (GPL v2)

      Hope my suggestion is useful.

      Kind regards,
      Juan
