RANK

Applies to ✅ Open Source Edition   ✅ Express Edition   ✅ Professional Edition   ✅ Enterprise Edition

RANK assigns a series of rankings, which are different from ROW_NUMBER in that they:

  • Assign the same rank to tied rows
  • Skip ranks after tied rows

This works similarly as ranks in a sports event, when two athletes are ranked first, the next one is ranked third.

SELECT
  LANGUAGE_ID,
  rank() OVER (ORDER BY LANGUAGE_ID)
FROM
  BOOK;
create.select(
         BOOK.LANGUAGE_ID,
         rank().over(orderBy(BOOK.LANGUAGE_ID)))
     .from(BOOK)
     .fetch();

Producing:

+-------------+------+
| language_id | rank |
+-------------+------+
|           1 |    1 |
|           1 |    1 | <-- Tied rows are both ranked first
|           2 |    3 | <-- The next rank is 3 as 2 is skipped
|           4 |    4 |
+-------------+------+
See this article for a comparison between ROW_NUMBER, RANK, and DENSE_RANK
