Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-126) Don't fetch information on Partitions from HDFS instead of MetaStore
Date Sun, 07 Dec 2008 10:19:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-126?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12654185#action_12654185
] 

Johan Oskarsson commented on HIVE-126:
--------------------------------------

Forgot to ask, what's the policy for removing public methods in Hive? Release one version
with them deprecated and then remove in the following release like Hadoop?
If so we could deprecate the methods and only get partition information from HDFS if it isn't
an external table in the next release. Then in the following release we would remove those
methods permanently. Thoughts?

> When investigating HIVE-91 an issue came up where the information on what partitions
a table contains is loaded by listing the directories in the table directory on HDFS. This
is then used to overrule what is in the MetaStore if any difference is found. 
> * Would it not be preferable if MetaStore is the one authority on what the table contains?
> * It will also be a major hassle (or impossible?) to retrieve this information from HDFS
with external tables that have non standard partition names (HIVE-91), such as: table/2008/01/08/portugal
where "2008/01/08" is one partition value and "portugal" is another.
