   $leftPlan as map:map,
   $rightPlan as map:map,
   [$condition as map:map?]
) as map:map


This method yields one output row set that concatenates every left row with every right row. Matches other than equality matches (for instance, greater-than comparisons between keys) can be implemented with a condition on the cross product.

The join performs natural joins between columns with the same identifiers. To prevent inadvertent natural joins, specify a different qualifier for the left or right columns or use different column names for the left and right columns.

$leftPlan The row set from the left view.
$rightPlan The row set from the right view.
$condition A boolean expression that filters the join output rows.
