There is an SQL statement in jtf_tasks_pvt.delete_task that leads to performance degradation while deleting tasks.

Statement in cursor c_parent_child of jtf_tasks_pvt.delete_task contains nonsense condition which always evaluates to FALSE and performs a full-table-scan on JTF_TASKS_B.

In package jtf_tasks_pvt, procedure delete_task, cursor c_parent_child in line 4558 is called. It contains the following statement:


The second statement of the "UNION ALL" references to jtf_tasks_b twice, but does not use any table-alias. Therefore, the subselect in the EXISTS-clause does not have any restriction to a specific task_id, and therefore has to scan the whole JTF_TASKS_B for any row where parent_task_id equals task_id - which does not exist since it is not possible for a task to be its parent. This leads to massive performance problems (since JTF_TASKS_B is quite huge) and obviously to wrong results since the lower part of the UNION ALL never returns a row.

The version of package body JTF_TASKS_PVT is
