Subject [jira] Updated: (HIVE-86) drop table should not delete data for external tables
Date Tue, 02 Dec 2008 16:38:44 GMT

Johan Oskarsson updated HIVE-86:

    Attachment: HIVE-86.patch

A first attempt at a patch for this issue. Please review and point me in the right direction.
Since I haven't worked much with Hive I'm having trouble seeing how the different components
work together. It seems like there are two places where the data in a dropped table can be
deleted, once in RWTable.java and one in HiveMetaStoreClient.java. Any reason for this duplication?
What role does the different *Store objects in the metastore java dir have?

This patch does not make sure that a partition drop doesn't delete the original data. Shall
I open up a new issue for that?
