Subject [Hadoop Wiki] Update of "Hive/PartitionedViews" by JohnSichi
Date Tue, 01 Feb 2011 21:26:17 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Hadoop Wiki" for change notification.

The "Hive/PartitionedViews" page has been changed by JohnSichi.


   * The ALTER VIEW ADD/DROP partition syntax is identical to ALTER TABLE, except that it
is illegal to specify a LOCATION clause.
   * Other ALTER TABLE commands which operate on partitions (e.g. TOUCH/ARCHIVE) are not supported.
 (But maybe we need to support TOUCH?)
+ = Metastore =
+ When storing view partition descriptors in the metastore, Hive omits the storage descriptor
entirely.  This is because there is no data associated with the view partition, so there is
no need to keep track of partition-level column descriptors for table schema evolution.
