Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-61) Implment ORDER BY
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2008 00:32:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-61?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12647484#action_12647484

Zheng Shao commented on HIVE-61:

Some more details about the implementation of ORDER BY:

We will store on what columns a table (or a partition) is partitioned, and sorted (in asc/desc
order), right after we insert data into that table. We will also store whether the table is
ordered or not.

If a table/partition is ordered and if we do a select (that outputs the data to console) from
that table, then we will need to merge-sort all files in that table/partition based on the
sort order.

> ORDER BY is in the query language reference but currently is a no-op. We should make
it an op.
