CASE abbreviations may appear in expressions that have more simple counterparts using a simpler
Using Settings.transformPatternsSimplifyCaseAbbreviation, the following transformations can be achieved:
-- With Settings.transformPatternsSimplifyCaseAbbreviation active, this: SELECT a IS NULL OR NVL(a = b, FALSE), COALESCE(a = b, a IS NULL), COALESCE(a, b) IS NOT DISTINCT FROM b, a IS NOT NULL AND NVL(a != b, TRUE), COALESCE(a != b, a IS NOT NULL), COALESCE(a, b) IS DISTINCT FROM b FROM tab; -- ... is transformed into the equivalent expression: SELECT NULLIF(a, b) IS NULL, NULLIF(a, b) IS NULL, NULLIF(a, b) IS NULL, NULLIF(a, b) IS NOT NULL, NULLIF(a, b) IS NOT NULL, NULLIF(a, b) IS NOT NULL FROM tab;
