Sets the EXPLAIN text when the table operator has the hexplain custom clause set.

Hexplain has the following values for the type of EXPLAIN to be completed:
  • 1 = simple
  • 2 = verbose
  • 3 = DBQL

This routine accepts multiple self-contained EXPLAIN text strings as input in order to handle a multi-row EXPLAIN plan from a foreign server. The routine provides the EXPLAIN plan to the parser which will display the multiple lines of the EXPLAIN plan.

This routine is callable on a PE vproc only by a table operator.


public void  setExplainText(String[]  texts);

Syntax Elements

An array containing the EXPLAIN text strings.
