Subject [jira] [Commented] (DRILL-624) Use Header rows (if exists) as metadata for the text readers
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2014 11:30:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-624?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14212153#comment-14212153

Hari Sekhon commented on DRILL-624:

This should be configurable via a keyword per SQL query since if you configure it at the storage
plugin level then it'll apply to all fields.

Having a session variable for it would also be useful but the query override is non-optional

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-624
>             Project: Apache Drill
>          Issue Type: New Feature

>            Assignee: Steven Phillips
>             Fix For: Future
> Currently the text readers return the data as array all the time. A lot of times, the
source text files can have header rows which identify the field names/metadata for the data.

> If this exists, Drill should leverage it to provide the query experience on this metadata
directly (just like parquet or JSON).
