Subject [GitHub] drill issue #1014: DRILL-5771: Fix serDe errors for format plugins
Date Fri, 10 Nov 2017 18:39:26 GMT
Github user ilooner commented on the issue:

    @paul-rogers I follow your explanation except for the last paragraph.
    The Drill UI let's me update storage plugins and their formatters at runtime (at least
on my laptop) by going to **Storage** tab and clicking on **Update** for a plugin. It also
let's me add storage plugins provided the necessary jars are in the classpath. I thought the
goal of this change was to address the fact that such a runtime update cannot be propagated
to the cluster atomically, so it is unreliable to reference a FormatPluginConfig by name (which
was done previously). It is, however, safe to copy the entire FormatPluginConfig into the
query plan as you said. Is this accurate?
