Subject [jira] [Created] (DRILL-4694) CTAS in JSON format produces extraneous NULL fields
Date Wed, 25 May 2016 18:57:12 GMT
Aman Sinha created DRILL-4694:
---------------------------------

             Summary: CTAS in JSON format produces extraneous NULL fields
                 Key: DRILL-4694
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-4694
             Project: Apache Drill
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Storage - JSON
    Affects Versions: 1.6.0
            Reporter: Aman Sinha


Consider the following JSON file: 
{noformat}
// file t2.json
{
"X" : {
  "key1" : "value1",
  "key2" : "value2"
  } 
}
{
"X" : {
  "key3" : "value3",
  "key4" : "value4"
  }
}
{
"X" : {
  "key5" : "value5",
  "key6" : "value6"
  }
}
{noformat}

Now create a table in Json format using CTAS: 
{noformat}
0: jdbc:drill:zk=local> alter session set `store.format` = 'json';

0: jdbc:drill:zk=local> create table dfs.tmp.jt12 as select t.`X` from `t2.json` t;
+-----------+----------------------------+
| Fragment  | Number of records written  |
+-----------+----------------------------+
| 0_0       | 3                          |
+-----------+----------------------------+
{noformat}

The output file has rows with union schema of all the fields in all the records.  This creates
extraneous Null fields in the output: 
{noformat}
$ cat jt12/0_0_0.json 
{
  "X" : {
    "key1" : "value1",
    "key2" : "value2",
    "key3" : null,
    "key4" : null,
    "key5" : null,
    "key6" : null
  }
} {
  "X" : {
    "key1" : null,
    "key2" : null,
    "key3" : "value3",
    "key4" : "value4",
    "key5" : null,
    "key6" : null
  }
} {
  "X" : {
    "key1" : null,
    "key2" : null,
    "key3" : null,
    "key4" : null,
    "key5" : "value5",
    "key6" : "value6"
  }
}
{noformat}

Note that if I change the output format to CSV or Parquet, there are no Null fields created
in the output file.
