Answer / subathra
IN: Inner query executes first and drives the outer query.
EXISTS: Outer query executes first and compares tge rows
retrived with the inner query.
Consider table tab1 has 1000 rows and table tab2 has 1000
IN: select t1.empid from tab1 t1 where t1.code in (select
t2.code from tab2 t2) -- All rows in t1 will read with t2
and the effect is 1000 X 1000 rows.
EXISTS: select t1.empid from tab1 t1 where exists (select 1
from tab2 t2 where t1.code=t2.code) -- Max of 1 row will be
read for each row of t1 and thus reduces the processing
1) If the majority of the filtering are in the sub query
then use IN.
1) If the majority of the filtering are in the outer query
then use EXISTS.
