SQLite3 Help

I have a web app (not rails) that is using sqlite3 directly. (Almost)
all queries are working, all is largely well.

However, I am trying to use a temp table as part of a complex query, and
the web app isn’t returning any results. (Specifically, the query is
running but returning no rows.) I’d chalk this up to bad SQL, but if I
copy/paste the query into a command-line sqlite3 process, it returns the
results I expect.

Can anyone think why this might be happening?

Following is the query text produced by the web app. To be sure, this
text is spat out to the HTML page, and I directly copy/pasted it into
the command window. Following the SQL is the ruby code that is being run
(that is not returning what is desired). Following that is the output of
the SQL command line to prove that I’m not insane. (And yes, both the
website and the command line are working on the exact same db file.)

SQL Code

CREATE TEMP TABLE filtered_bugs AS SELECT
bugs.id as id, bugs.name AS name, bugs.description AS description,
bugs.datetime AS datetime, bugs.maturity AS maturity,
vote_totals.votes AS votes,
( bugs.priority * bugs.severity * bugs.likelihood + bugs.maturity * 10

  • COALESCE( votes, 0 ) ) AS pain,
    statuses.description AS status_name,
    users1.name AS fixer_name,
    users2.name AS owner_name
    FROM bugs
    INNER JOIN statuses ON bugs.status_id = statuses.id
    INNER JOIN users users1 ON bugs.fixer_user_id = users1.id
    INNER JOIN users users2 ON bugs.owner_user_id = users2.id
    LEFT OUTER JOIN (
    SELECT bug_id, SUM(number) AS votes
    FROM votes
    GROUP BY bug_id
    ) vote_totals ON bugs.id = vote_totals.bug_id
    WHERE ( bugs.status_id=2 or bugs.status_id=3 );

SELECT
SUM( score ) AS total_score,
id, name, datetime, maturity, votes, pain,
status_name, fixer_name, owner_name
FROM
(
SELECT
20 as score,
id, name, datetime, maturity, votes, pain,
status_name, fixer_name, owner_name
FROM filtered_bugs
WHERE name LIKE ‘%bump%’
UNION
SELECT
10 as score,
id, name, datetime, maturity, votes, pain,
status_name, fixer_name, owner_name
FROM filtered_bugs
WHERE description LIKE ‘%bump%’
UNION
SELECT
comment_count as score,
id, name, datetime, maturity, votes, pain,
status_name, fixer_name, owner_name
FROM filtered_bugs INNER JOIN
(
SELECT
bug_id, count( bug_id ) AS comment_count
FROM comments
WHERE commenttext LIKE ‘%bump%’
GROUP BY bug_id
) comment_group ON comment_group.bug_id = id
)
GROUP BY id
ORDER BY total_score DESC

Ruby Code

db = SQLite3::Database.new( “bugdb” )
puts theSQL
$theBugs = db.execute( theSQL )
p $theBugs
#=> []
